The ton loves nothing more than a good scandal, and they're giddy with the appearance of wealthy Samuel Hartley. Not only is he self-made, American, and in the habit of wearing moccasins, but he is also notorious for fleeing a battle in which several English gentlemen lost their lives. What the ton doesn't know, though, is that Samuel is in London because of this massacre. He believes his regiment was given up to the enemy and won't rest until he finds the traitor.Lady Emeline Gordon is captivated with Samuel. Not only does he defy convention with his unusual dress, his sensual smile, and his forthright manner, but he survived the battle that killed her beloved brother. Samuel suspects that the person responsible for her brother's death is Jasper Renshaw, Viscount Vale, a family friend since childhood--and Emeline's fiancé. Despite Emeline's belief in Vale's innocence and her refusal to break off her betrothal, she and Samuel begin a passionate affair. But can their relationship survive the fallout from Samuel's investigation?

I don't really have all that much to say about this book. I liked it, but I think what makes me the happiest is that Jasper (Emeline's fiancée at the start of the book who she loves like a brother) is going to get his own book. That's a little strange, really, that I'm so happy about that but I've r...
This book took some time for me to really get into it (that's why a 3.5 instead of a 4). I didn't really like Emeline at first. As the book progressed, I had moments where I thought I "got" her and others where I still just didn't like her. Having finished the book, I'm still not sure if I like or...
Why is it that when someone is rich it's always "as rich as Croesus"? Shameful how Midas is ignored I tell you. Excuse me just 10 pages later Samuel is richer than King Midas. Only on the third or so page and Emeline shows such promise by these two lines "She suppressed a shiver. Intelligent men w...
“There are no heroes on the battlefield, my lady; there are only survivors.” Let me say that I am a bit of a fangirl about anything Elizabeth Hoyt writes. I may be a bit biased. I think she is a master at sexual tension, so if you like a smooth, slow build up to a very enjoyable, lustfully deliciou...
