Burning vengeance... Ethan MacCarrick was a heartbreakingly handsome rake until a powerful nobleman ordered him brutally beaten and his face scarred for a crime he didn't commit. Ethan's reprisal -- bankrupting the nobleman and forcing his exile -- does little to appease his wrath. Ten years later, a haughty, mysterious beauty enchants Ethan -- the daughter of his enemy. At last, Ethan will have the revenge he's craved; he'll promise her marriage, seduce her, then cast her aside. Bitter hardships... When Madeleine van Rowen's family was suddenly plunged into destitution and dishonor, she steeled herself against further heartache. She never weakened, never trusted, until a towering, scarred Highlander relentlessly pursues her, breaking down her defenses. At what price forgiveness? The passion between them burns hotter than Ethan's fury, and soon he finds he can't let her go. But when Madeleine uncovers the truth about him, can Ethan convince her to accept all he now offers -- when he once destroyed everything she had?

Opening Line: “Ethan had long grown used to the sinking expressions people cast him when they realized it was he who darkened their doorsteps—but in the East End rookeries this tendency seemed even more pronounced.” Does anyone else find it near impossible to write a review about a book you absolute...
Amazing! The entire series is reread worthy!
This was a reread for me, but it had been such a long time...It was just as good as I remembered it. I love smart, scrappy heroines and Maddy is all of that. I like how Kresley Cole writes antiheroes so well. Ethan is an ass for much of the book, but you can't help but root for him. Another of her h...
This book officially made me a Kresley Cole fan. This is the third book of hers that I've read. I almost cried in this book. I generally feel that crying in this genre is a wasted emotion since everyone gets their HEA, in a big way. And I truly loved Maddy, she was tenacioius and always knew what sh...
