3.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Growing up with four unruly brothers has made Freyja Bedwyn far bolder than most society ladies.

From feisty manner to long, tumbling hair, Lady Freyja is pure fire, a woman who seeks both adventure and freedom.

Adventure soon finds her on a visit to Bath, when a handsome stranger bursts into Freyja's room and entreats her to hide him.

His name is Joshua Moore, Marquess of Hallmere, a man with a hell-raising reputation of his own who is quickly intrigued by the independent beauty.

So intrigued, in fact, that he makes her a surprising request: to pose as his fiance and help thwart his family's matchmaking schemes.

For two people determined to be free, it's the perfect planuntil passion blindsides them both.

For as Joshua sets out to achieve his complete seduction of Freyja, a woman who has sworn off love is in danger of losing the one thing she never expected to give again: her heart...

Review by

Freyja Bedwyn is trying to deal with the aftermath of seeing the guy she loved marrying another woman, a woman who is now having his baby. She heads to Bath to visit a friend and on the way helps hide a man trying to hide. Turns out he's Joshua Moore, Marquess of Hallmere, also heading for Bath. When they meet in Bath sparks fly and they discover that they intrigue each other. A pretend engagement to help twart his manipulative aunt starts them down a path they may not want to get off.It was fun, kept me reading well past my bed time. I liked the characters and his Aunt was suitably evil and manipulative and deserved what happened to her. I like how he accepted her with all her flaws and she accepted him.
