Evelyn Tremaine HAS DREAMS TO TRAVEL THE WORLD…
And being outwitted by fate will not deter her!
But even she has to admit that waking up in the bed of a stranger with no memory might be a tiny wrinkle in her otherwise grand plan. Was he a peasant? A gunman? Perhaps a duke? Or was he just a figment of her imagination? Evelyn wasn't about to lurk around and find out. But she will soon learn the mysterious stranger was a force much larger than fate to be reckoned with, and he has set his sight firmly on her.
Matthew Langdon HAS DREAMS OF ENTIRELY A DIFFERENT NATURE…
And they all include reckless, unpredictable, and completely dangerous to his hardened heart, Evelyn Tremaine.
While he might have decided long ago never to get caught up with any woman ever again, he is enchanted by this remarkable lady and her fiery imagination. The only thing is she is mad as a March hare. Winning the exquisite lady's love will be a trial, but Matthew has a will of iron, and he would stop at nothing, fair means or foul until he has her complete surrender.
And earls got to catch a lady
I truly enjoyed this book and would recommend it
I couldn't get past the first few chapters. Matthew is on the psychotic end of overbearing males that romance novels tend to write. After one meeting and a few kisses he is manhandling her, stalking her, manipulating, demanding answers and intentionally seducing her, all while going crazy in his head about how no women (especially beautiful ones) can be trusted. No amount of "vulnerability" mixed in with his rants and rages makes him even palatable enough to continue. In real life someone would need a restraining order. I'd give zero stars if I could. But at least Evelyn has a middling of spunk. So one star.
Enjoyable read. Could have done without so much lying and manipulation. But it was quite a raucous tale.
Also, it’s Marquess. Marquis is typically for French or Scottish nobility. Most English Nobles of that rank are Marquess. Sorry. Pet peeve of mine.
