Named a Best Romance of the Month by The Washington Post:
"Historical romance devotees will enjoy Michels's adoring use of some of the classic tropes of the genre—the spare heir, the wrong brother as hero, the heroine in men's clothing—but what makes the book so enjoyable is the way Michels makes the familiar fresh."—SARAH MACLEAN, The Washington Post

The romance between Ethan and Roselyn is beautifully written, gradually building on their childhood relationship and simmering with stolen glances and simple touches of affection. Michels's latest is the complete package: a captivating romance with gripping suspense wrapped up in a novel to be savored.
