4 out of 5 (1 rating)


When a handsome man literally falls at her feet while she's walking through a moonlit convent courtyard, Helena knows he must be there for a scandalous liaison.

Yet she keeps his presence a secret from the questioning nuns - and for her silence the stranger rewards her with an enticing, unforgettable kiss.

What Helena doesn't know was that her wild Englishman is Sebastian Cynster, Duke of St.

Ives. Seven years later, Sebastian spies Helena from across a crowded ballroom.

This heiress is dazzling London society with her wit and beauty, tantalising all the eligible men with the prospect of taking her hand in marriage.

But Helena is not looking for just any husband. She wants an equal, a challenge - someone who can live up to the promise of that delicious, never-forgotten kiss.

Review by

The story opens with Helena wandering through a moonlit Convent courtyard being surprised by a man who steals a kiss before stealing away. Little does she know that that man is Sebastian Cynster so when she spies him seven years later across a crowded ballroom she's not sure about what to do.When her guardian starts demanding she obey him and betray her love she's not sure what to do next. There are wheels within wheels and what her guardian is asking may damage their reationship.It's nothing spectacular but great fun, it sucked me in and kept me reading well past my bedtime.

Also in the Bar Cynster series   |  View all
