Publisher Description

He's breaking the rules for one woman, and coming dangerously close to falling in love…

Simon Nugent, Earl of Fielding, knows he's flawed. He's arrogant, possessive, and haunted by a terrible choice he made long ago. So when a former friend's daughter gives him the chance to do a good deed, he grabs it. Except he'd like to grab her as well and teach her a thing or two about kissing. If only she weren't so damn stubborn.

Ida Strong wants one thing – justice on behalf of her father. She has no room for anything else, in spite of her growing and (at times) inexplicable attraction toward a certain earl. But for a woman who knows what betrayal tastes like, placing her trust in others is hard. Risking her heart, would be downright foolish. Until it's the only thing that seems to make sense.

Wonderful heroine , great storyline

I’ve enjoyed so many books by Sophie Barnes in the past. This one had a great story premise and I wish I had liked the hero more. I realize for the sake of the story the characters are who they are or who they are portrayed to be. And not caring for Simon is probably on me and not the author. Sophie is a very talented author and I’ve always enjoyed her stories immensely.

Simon for me was almost unredeemable. While he felt that he had a opportunity to do a good deed and make amends for the mistakes of his past by helping Ida clear her father’s name he treated her as if she was unworthy of him but he did come through for her. Her father who was hanged as a traitor because of lies saved his life during the war. It was Ida’s mission to finally get justice for her father and vindicate his name.

Ida was wonderful, strong and stood by her convictions which I liked. The mystery and suspense was very good and the storyline was engaging and held my attention. There was a good ending although I expected much more in the way of groveling out of Simon because his behavior had been so lackluster. But he did come around, realizing Ida was more than enough for him. The chemistry was well written and together they find their hard won happily ever after and vindicate her father.

Thank you Sophie for such an exciting and engaging story.

Regency romance

Bit bland I thought but no egregious historic errors. Passes muster but that is all.

What’s good book

At first Simon (the Earl) is a coward for at one time being a soldier. He had his priorities all messed up and I didn’t like his character. But by the end he was a hero for Ida. I love this series.
