This masked lord...
Lord Jasper, younger son of a marquess, suffered horrible burns fighting in the Napoleonic Wars. He wears a mask to hide his face from the stares and screams and finds comfort in the shadows. Jasper is an exceptional bounty hunter, so when a woman summons him to her deathbed and asks him to find her runaway daughter before she passes away, he doesn't refuse. Jasper is close to his quarry when he's knifed by an assailant. Imagine his surprise when he regains consciousness in the arms of the woman he seeks. Except she's not at all what he expected.
Is not the only one with scars.
On a remote cliff on the sea, Olivia Carlisle calls her five-year-old son in from an approaching storm. But the little boy is more interested in the man he's found on the trail to their hidden cottage. Olivia fears men and wants nothing more than to leave the injured man where she found him. But his knife wound is severe, and with the approaching storm, she knows leaving him will condemn him to death. As Jasper begins to heal, Olivia acknowledges her attraction to him, even though such emotions terrify her almost as much as returning to London. Jasper must convince her that her only chance at safety is to challenge the man who pursues her. They must travel into the lion's den—he to face his vulnerability and she to face her worst fears.
4.5-5 Stars!! This book is great! It’s the 4th book in the series but can be read as a standalone. I’ve read the 1st book in the series ‘Third Son’s a Charm’ but missed the next 2 books & it was still great! I have a lot of scars myself, so I kind of understand what it’s like, even though most of my scars are under my clothes. Reading this book, you can’t help but feel for the characters & everything that they have been through, it doesn’t matter that they are fictional. It really is a great read & I enjoyed reading it! It must have really sucked to be a woman back in this time! I can’t help but be angry at how women were treated back than! I loved both of the main characters, Jasper & Olivia-they were perfect for each other! They were strong, independent & had to overcome a lot in life. Although they are works of fiction, they are very inspirational! I definitely recommend this book as I truly enjoyed reading it!
*I received this book to read & review at no charge & I gave my honest opinion.*
