WOW! Yeah, that's what I was thinking too! The Damons were strong, ultra sexy and I can't help but want to know the story of cousin Benjamin and Harrison's brother, Andrew. I could picture myself in certain scenes of the book. I feel like I know what the inside of the Damon mansion looks like. And the butler, Gordon, obviously loved Harrison very much. Revealing the "journal" every time he thought Harrison was in need of it.

Ms. Adams has really brought all her talents to bear with this one!
This book is a fabulous fast paced enjoyable read and does great credit to Noelle Adams pedigree as a uniquely talented writer. Each of her books provide charming likeable heroines (which is surprisingly rare in romance novels books it seems), sexy and complicated heroes, natural dialogue and infectious humor. That definitely all comes through in this novel, along with a great balance of adorable fun and sophisticated storytelling.
The plot is downright fascinating but I don't want to risk giving anything away. Marietta ("Etta") was in a horrible car accident when she was 10 that stole the life of her sister and her childhood. She is now an adult and eager to start her life. Harrison ("Harry") Damon is the responsible nephew in a prestigious family. He and Etta's lives collide and surprises, misunderstandings and romance abound.
This book just reached out and grabbed me from the start. There was no way I was putting this down! The pacing is perfect - beautifully developed without dragging or ever feeling rushed. There is a lovely balance between nineteenth century romantic notions and purely modern plot and storytelling. It makes for a real reader's dream book.
I would also like to highlight the international nature of the book. We visit England, France and america during this book and each piece is so realistic and human, without any artificiality, that it feels like you are really there.
