I received a copy of this book from the publishers via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I have long been a fan of Ms Michael’s work, she finds the perfect balance for steam intrigue and romance.
This is the story of Graham Everly, Duke of Northfield and Lady Adelaide. In the two months since Graham was jilted and lost his best friend in the process, he has been sulking. His fellow dukes have decided that he has languished long enough and convince him to go out with them to the theatre. Grudgingly he agrees and is immediately drawn to the actress Lydia Ford.
Lady Adelaide has long been a wallflower, seeking to escape an unhappy home life she took to the stage. As Lydia Ford, Adelaide can be the person she always wanted to be. Graham has no idea why he’s so attracted to both women, each a polar opposite of the other.
With Adelaide facing danger from two separate sources, can Graham overcome the deception?
I recommend this book to anyone who loves a broken hero and a bold heroine. I look forward to the next in this series.
