When Devil, the most infamous member of the Cynster family, is caught in a compromising position with plucky governess Honoria Wetherby, he astonishes the entire town by offering his hand in marriage. No one dreamed this scandalous rake would ever take a bride. And as society mamas swooned at the loss of England′s most eligible bachelor, Devil′s infamous Cynster cousins began to place wagers on the wedding date.
But Honoria wasn′t about to bend society′s demands and marry a man "just" because they′d been found together virtually unchaperoned. No, she craved adventure, and while solving the murder of a young Cynster cousin fit the bill for a while, she decided that once the crime was solved she′d go off to see the world. But the scalding heat of her unsated desire for Devil soon had Honoria craving a very different sort of excitement. Could her passion for Devil cause her to embrace the enchanting peril of a lifelong adventure of the heart?

One of the best historical romances!
This one is a keeper! Devil and Honoria are unforgettable characters! Great chemistry!
This is the first book in the Cynster Series. It is a fabulous story, with romance, mystery, and wonderfully written characters. The rest of the series is just as good.
Love love this book.
I've read this book before in paperback. When I saw it on iBooks I just had to purchase it and read it again and again! I love the main characters, devil is the epitome of a strong man and honoria is definitely no shrinking violet. I'm so glad that she isn't the typical regency woman that is often portrayed in romance novels. She is tall, imposing and stubborn. Definitely tired of those petite damsels that are always described. I've read this book probably 5 times already and will keep reading it again and again.
