Want to know the truth about Lady Matilda St. Clair?
Well, there are two things she is not:
She is not a lady.
She is not Matilda St. Clair. 

So, who is she? 

She is Eudora ‘Dorie’ Gore, the daughter of London’s most legendary criminal, Captain James Gore, and she’s on the run from herself.
For the last few years, she’s lived under the guise of Lady St. Claire, but everything begins to unravel when she meets her match.
…Hearts were made to be mended… Together
Sir John Abrams is known by the public as Sir Blackheart, the notorious knight-turned-thief who stole right from under the king’s nose.
He was sentenced to Australia because of a lie created by Captain Gore but escaped to the Continent.
Now … he’s back to clear his name. 

For himself and for a little niece he’d never known was counting on him. 
And he’ll need help. 

But when help comes in the form of a woman who’s as beautiful as she is mysterious, John finds himself adding something to his list.
Find out who the real Lady St. Clair is… and steal her heart. 

Will their adventure end in triumph?
Can John and Dorie find a way to leave their past behind to forge a new future together?

First sentences

“Oh, look at this!” Lady Matilda St. Clair said as she spread the paper out on the table in the sitting room.

My thoughts

I’ve been following this series for a while now and I’ve started to lose interest in the series. I felt that the books have gradually gotten worse as the series continues. To be honest, I was very interested in reading about the newly restored knight’s story, but I felt that this story didn’t really do a deep dive into Sir John Abrams’s life just lightly touched on his sister and her family. But not a lot on his past in the Navy or his career as a thief.

I had thought that I would really like Eudora’s character who is the daughter of the legendary criminal, Captain James Gore. But I was quite disappointed with her. She didn’t really have the courage that I had thought that she would possess or the personality.

Aside from the story was very boring between the two and I didn’t feel the chemistry between the two, so it was a little hard to believe that they were really in love. Or would really fall for each other. There was a lot of back and forth that made it quite hard to concentrate on the story. There was a lot of grammatical errors that had made reading difficult. I did lose interest a few chapters in and didn’t go back to finish until recently.
