Publisher Description

When evil lurks, the best way to draw it out is to cloak yourself with shadows.

Hugh Cavendish, new Marquess of Armestead, is a man disillusioned about life. After spending three years imprisoned in Botany Bay for crimes he committed against a peer, he's returned to London with revenge on his mind and a black mark against his name. However, it's a sticky wicket, for in bringing retribution to a certain duke's doorstep, he would destroy the life of his enemy's sister—the woman he'd loved and lost.

Lady Roslyn Kenton, sister to the Duke of Innesford, is wary of men, for they've certainly proved untrustworthy and disappointing. Though her brother wields dark and treacherous power, she'd rather not have her name associated with him, but when the repercussions of his misdeeds come home to roost, they bring with them the one man she never hoped to see again—her former fiancé, Hugh Cavendish.

They get on like oil and water at first, but when underlying sparks set desire ablaze, secrets are revealed that shift their perceptions and challenge their thinking. While a romance blooms and they work to overcome lingering obstacles, danger moves within the ton, and its sights are set on permanently keeping Hugh from restoring his honor… and her promise. Only by calling upon a few friends fighting social injustices will Hugh and Roslyn have the freedom to grasp the happily ever after denied to them years ago.

Revenge

Falsely accused, imprisoned, and abused for three years, Hugh Cavendish returns to England the new Marquess of Armestead and bent on revenge. Lady Roslyn Kenton doesn’t trust men. Her brother is evil. He is abusive, and, unbeknownst to her, is responsible for Hugh’s imprisonment.

This is a real nail-biter. There is a lot of action and danger. Hugh and Roslyn are awesome characters. Torn apart unjustly, they are happy to have a second chance. They work together to restore his name and put a stop to Edward’s horrid business. Does Edward get a proper comeuppance? Let’s just say he got a bit of his own. A well-written story with strong determined characters and a hard-won happy ending. I enjoyed an recommend it.

I received an ARC of this book via BookSprout. My review is voluntary.
