Worldly and influential, Merrick William Hasting, Earl of Huntingdon, is the catch of the season. It is expected of him to propose the belle of the ton. On his way to his country estate, Merrick saves a youth name Chris from being beaten to death and takes him to his grand home. Suddenly, Merrick begins to feel an undercurrent of emotions toward Chris, emotions he has lost since the mysterious death of his wife. Not to mention an attraction of the sexual type so powerful, he thinks he has gone mad. The desire is entirely unnatural and against God’s rule of nature, and he must at all cost annihilate his sinful craving.
Shy and loyal to her boot, Christina Smith is disguising herself as a lad in order to protect herself and her family. After Merrick has saved her and fostered her in his home, her devotion and love for him knows no bound. She, however, is very confused and hurt when he starts pushing her away after the arrival of his guests. She knows those vile, scheming beautiful women are competing for his hand in marriage, and she uses her wits and tricks to protect him. Trying to convince the stubborn man so, however, is very hard indeed, especially where his heart is concern.


  • A difficult read

    By AnnualMarie
    Not at all polished. The son is the brother is the son again. Poor character development, and jumps between characters and thoughts in random fashion. It seems one part was left unfinished as the story doesn't finish a plot line and picks up as if that part didn't happen.

    Historically inaccurate. A small gun of the napoleonic era is not going to fire multiple times. Pistols and guns of this era used flintlock and then had to be reloaded. Author changed the main characters hair color. Always using a different description. It was a variety of colors. Other small details that were bothersome. It feels like it was a book that was written over a long period of time and author forgot some details. Plus any girl that is use to labor would not get beat so by a "lady"

    Do I need to say more. The entire plot was horrible. I continued to read hoping it story line would get better. It didn't ...
  • Too many points of view

    The writing is hard to follow, to the point that I gave up reading even though I found the plot interesting. The omniscient point of view wove together and so you never really knew who was thinking and speaking. Needed editing.
  • All over

    I didn't mind the plot of the story, but it was just all over the place. I don't read historical stories and I don't know if that's how it's suppose to be written, but I like it.
