He expected to be the topic of scandalous gossip.
Banished to Boston for causing the death of Lord Banbury, Lucas Dempsey vowed never to set foot on English soil again. But when his brother inherits the viscountcy and pleads for his return, the opportunity to show his contempt and loathing for the Society who turned its back on him proves to be far too enticing to resist.
He did not expect an intriguing lady to barge into his home desperate to save his wicked soul.
When the dishonourable Lucas Dempsey steps into the ballroom after a four-year absence, Helena Ecclestone is quick to label the gentleman a murderous rogue. That is until she stumbles upon a secret conversation and feels a moral obligation to see justice done. But while the ladies swoon over his handsome countenance, Helena is determined to look beyond such superficial features, intrigued to discover the true character of the gentleman he hides beneath his arrogant façade.

Adorable and enthralling
I absolutely loved this book!
Helena and Lucas were amazing!
Love it when the “plain & unconventional and unwanted” girl gets noticed by the right man. Her courage and bluntness was so refreshing and his fear of trusting anyone made a great read!
I started this book early one morning and couldn’t put it down and I literally read it in one day.
The only thing I regret is at the end of the book it states I can get the bonus epilogue if I go to the authors webpage and sign up but that didn’t happen. 😭😭😭😭 I wanted more! BUT I still given 5 🌟
Strong female; fun male
Enjoyed reading about characters who knew what the other was like and had respect for each other. Both with sense of humor! Yay!
Saving the sinner
