Phoebe Stanhope is not a typical Lady. As feisty as she is quick-witted, no one can catch her, especially when she is driving her dashing phaeton with its perfectly matched horses. And unlike her peers, experience has guarded her against a growing list of would-be suitors. But when she encounters Marcus Finley, what she fears most burns deep within his blue-eyed gaze…
For Lord Marcus, the spark of recognition is but a moment in the love he has held these many years. Now that he’s returned to England, all the happiness he desires rests on Lady Phoebe never finding out that he was the one who turned her heart so cold and distant. He must work fast to gain the advantage—to convince her what she wants is exactly what she denies—but in order to seduce her into his arms, he must be willing to give up more than he can control…
This is a rerelease of a book first published in 2013. It is the debut novel of Ella Quinn, and this needs to be remembered when reading. The author has gained in skills since she first wrote this and fans of the author will have higher expectations.
This was an okay read, there was a decent plot, but nothing stood out to me. The characters were a bit flat, and the subplot was introduced late to the story and added nothing to the plot. I actually skimmed over it. I know this author can do better and again I have to say it’s her debut so some leeway should be given.
I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
