“I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.”

Lady Madalene Kay doesn’t fit into the mold of the on, so has declared herself finished with Society.

After getting her heart broken, she becomes a spinster and a teacher at St. John’s School for Girls in Bath. She’ll go where her mission for good takes her…even if that place is in the lair of a villain.

Marshal Pengross had been called many things, but the title of the murderer was what had him thrown in jail.

Accused of his father’s death, he suffered a short imprisonment before he’d been cleared of the charges.

Sadly, he’d been left to bear a scar that rendered his face ugly. The only gift in life that he’s been able to keep was his daughter Lilias, and he’s not willing to let her go.

But in less than a day, Madalene finds that the earl, though quick to anger, is not who everyone claims him to be… (Goodreads)

First sentences

“The Story of the Moon-flower Princess. It was a dark night, and a woman was on the run.”

My thoughts

This was a very typical romance story with some very interesting characters. I felt that the story was quite predictable and there wasn’t anything outstanding. But there wasn’t anything that I didn’t like about the series either. I liked Marshal he was a strong male lead and I liked Madalene. She didn’t back down to him which I quite admire in a female lead character. I enjoyed the pace of the story and it was easy to read and finish. I felt that things did fall into place quite easily for Marshal and Madalene but I think that’s the point of a fiction novel. One of the parts that really annoyed me was the grammatical errors throughout which made reading it harder. Otherwise, I quite enjoyed reading it.
