“ARC given for an honest review”
Blythe hungered for his caresses, knowing only time and sweet seduction would win the hardened heart of Roger Debrett, Earl of Eden, the man she’d married to save him from hanging for the murder of his first wife. She knew with her druid’s instinct that they’d loved each other forever and that they were meant to be together, even when Roger vowed to annul their marriage once he found the real killer. Roger’s blazing eyes devoured her, even as he spoke words that hurt. His touch burned even as he denied its power. Now Blythe prepared to conquer her husband body and soul…
Roger Debrett owed her his life. He tried to see her as the sweet child he remembered from long ago, but reality struck with ebony hair, violet eyes, and a body he was driven to possess. He couldn’t afford to love. Yet even as a killer stalked his every move, he was consumed by Blythe, the innocent temptress who stood in harm’s way.
He had loved her forever.
I found that you could read this book stand alone from the series and would still be able understand the story. Roger doesn’t trust women after his first wife and when he married Blythe he treats her quite cruel at times. To be honest, I understood his reasoning’s but I really didn’t like him all that much in the beginning. I enjoyed the pace of the book and it was an easy read for me to and from work. I really wanted to continue reading to find out who killed Roger’s first wife and who was still looking to kill him. I enjoyed the twists and turns and the characters were well developed. I’d be interested in reading the rest of the series.
