Description from Amazon.com:
Her captor. Her Savior. And her temptation…
Lady Jane Langley values logic and reason over passion and emotion. Her intellect has given her value in the eyes of both her father and society. Logic gives way to terrible, icy fear when Jane finds herself in a devastating carriage accident… an accident in which she is helpless to do anything but watch as her aristocratic companion is murdered.
But this was no mere accident. This was an assassination. Spy and grandson of Lord Landsdowne, Gerard Badeau is methodic in his dark, shadowy work, knowing that any display of emotion could get him killed. Something about the mysterious woman and her cool blue eyes stays Gerard’s lethal hand. Now he has both a witness and a hostage.
And if he doesn’t kill Lady Jane Langley, he risks a fate that is far, far worse…falling in love with her.
After reading the description and knowing this is a romance novel it is for-sure he falls for her. But in the beginning we wonder if her attraction to him isn’t a bit of Stockholm Syndrome because she is kidnapped, injured and totally dependent on him. Gerard does become obsessed with marrying Jane and Jane’s reluctance and turnaround is a bit too slick. The ending made me a bit angry with our heroine. But the fact that I had so many emotions is a credit to the superb writing found here. It is all a lovely, well written romance with lots of intrigue and delicious sex. I’m so glad I took a chance on this new-to-me author.
