What if the assault on a woman has a lasting influence? What if attraction didn't just wipe out trauma? Not something handled often in romance novels but this one did.
Serena Russington wants to go to Vauxhall with Sir Timothy Forsbrook when he plies her with alcohol and takes off for Scotland. When they stop for the night he assults her but doesn't get very far before her screams attract the brooding Lord Quinn. He rescues her and brings her home to his house. She's very traumatised but finds that Lord Quinn is a comfort. When she returns to her older brother and his wife, who are her guardians.her assulter does everything in his power to paint himself as the aggrevied party and to paint her in a very bad light. Her sister-in-law reinforces how she thinks Serena behaved very badly. Eventually Quinn offers for her hand, but what she finds with him is less rude than his reputation would suggest.
Lord Quinn is such a good character, he's so patient and understanding and really wants the best for her, even if it does take him a while to realise why.
Loved it, could barely put it down, really enjoyed the read and would recommend it.
