About this book:
Hunter hooks us on the first page with a slightly humorous but dark and tortured Lord Easterbrook. She balances the story with a business-savvy and head-strong Leona Montgomery, whom you immediately know is going to disrupt his world. The passion between the two runs hot. Secrets could forever break their trust in one another. And solving long over-due mysteries could lead to murder.

What I like most about this book is that when one of the characters needs to deal with an issue Hunter has them have “the talk”. Both of these characters are “deal with it” kind of people. It would have driven me crazy if the characters skirted around issues for 100 pages. But Hunter – like her characters – isn’t afraid to deal with things head on and sometimes that means showing a character’s weaker side. Although no one would dare call Lord Easterbrook weak.

Has Lord Easterbrook sinned? Well, you’ll need to read the book and decide for yourself. But if he did sin it feels very, very good. Just ask Leona.

Disclosure: I believe I won this book in a contest run by the author, publisher or a book website. I honestly can’t remember which one it was.
