The daughter of an infamous art forger, Chloe Somerton grew up poor. Desperate to aid her sisters, she’d picked a pocket…or two. Now circumstances have changed, and Chloe has a chance to marry a young, wealthy lord. Only his mentor—a dark, dangerous duke—stands in her way. The duke knows about her past, and she’ll do anything to keep him from telling.
The moment Michael Keswick, the Duke of Cameron, sees Chloe Somerton, he recognizes her as a fraud. The stunning beauty with sapphire eyes and golden hair now appears to be a proper lady, but he knows better. What begins as a battle of wills soon escalates into a fierce attraction. In Chloe, Michael finds peace from the memories of war, but he refuses to marry…and she won’t settle for anything less.
I received this book for free. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Michael Keswick, the Duke of Cameron, wants only the best for his best friend’s son, Lord Henry Sefton. When Michael meets the woman who has stolen Henry’s young heart, he recognizes her in an instant. Miss Chloe Somerton is the young woman he saw pickpocketing years before. Although he knows her to be a thief, he cannot deny the attraction that burns inside him.
Michael knew even if he didn’t feel the enormous pull toward Chloe, she wasn’t the right woman for Henry. Chloe has a fire that would be snuffed out by the sweetness and stability Henry would bring her. So what is a man to do but discourage Henry at every turn.
Even with Michael’s attempts to part her and Henry, Chloe can’t stop thinking and wanting the fiery passion the duke fills her with. A glimpse here and there of the real Micheal brings Chloe a deep understanding of him and why she see herself so much in him.
Gabrielle gives us a story of passion, romance, and a thrilling love. The way the two broken pieces of Chloe and Michael fit together in this story if simply marvelous. This is a series I will read over and over again, loving and cherishing it every time.
