Worldly and influential, Merrick William Hasting, Earl of Huntingdon, is the catch of the season. It is expected of him to propose the belle of the ton. On his way to his country estate, Merrick saves a youth name Chris from being beaten to death and takes him to his grand home. Suddenly, Merrick begins to feel an undercurrent of emotions toward Chris, emotions he has lost since the mysterious death of his wife. Not to mention an attraction of the sexual type so powerful, he thinks he has gone mad. The desire is entirely unnatural and against God’s rule of nature, and he must at all cost annihilate his sinful craving.
Shy and loyal to her boot, Christina Smith is disguising herself as a lad in order to protect herself and her family. After Merrick has saved her and fostered her in his home, her devotion and love for him knows no bound. She, however, is very confused and hurt when he starts pushing her away after the arrival of his guests. She knows those vile, scheming beautiful women are competing for his hand in marriage, and she uses her wits and tricks to protect him. Trying to convince the stubborn man so, however, is very hard indeed, especially where his heart is concern.

Do I need to say more. The entire plot was horrible. I continued to read hoping it story line would get better. It didn't ...
This book is poorly written and is very redundant. I was weirdly interested in the story but yet hated reading it. There were repeated details on minor issues followed by skimming over important situations. The characters are not believable and the situation borders on pedophilia and not because the girl is 18. The level of blindness and ignorance all the characters have is frustrating. The language is not always correct for the time period and the gun used doesn’t even exist until at least March 1836. The author has good grammatical skills and ideas but was trying to take on too much at once in this book. This should have been a very rough draft and not the final version. Hope the author keeps going, does some research and improves with experience.
I’ve read some bad books
But this has got to be one of the worst. It reads like a 6th graders fan fiction, the characters have zero development and no consistency either. At one point her hair is brown then it’s golden. The characters have seemingly no motive for their actions, it makes no sense that the two main characters fall in love, and the way the intimate scenes is written is borderline creepy, with the female protagonist denying the male protagonist and him still persisting. There are so many plot lines that just don’t make sense, and given the awful, amateur writing, it just serves to confuse the reader more. This book is about 200 pages too long which is a shame because the premise is interesting. I wish I could give this 0 stars. Don’t waste your time
