This was an enjoyable read for the most part, except that the heroine spent the first 100 pages kicking, screaming and name calling. It wasn't nearly as endearing as the author thought it was.

London is up in flames and someone is trying to kidnap a rich, but scarred heiress. She was injured in an assault on their home as a child and has hidden away ever since. Excellent book!

It was interesting that the heroine had a horribly scarred face - and that, to hide it, she becomes very reclusive...however, I rather wished she'd have just shot the hero in the first few pages - she had a gun on him. Would have been a better ending.

Should she trust this dangerous rogue? Is his intention rescue from the flames surrounding London, or abduction? He must surely be after her wealth because no man could possibly want a woman as scarred as she...

Book Description
Lady Desire Godwin's gentle existence is rudely interrupted when a handsome brigand crosses the parapet of her rooftop garden. She watches, dismayed, as the impudent stranger is carried off to jail.

As the Great Fire rages across London, Jakob Balston uses the confusion to escape. He fully expects that Desire will have already fled town. Only, she is still there, at the mercy of the flames andalone.


Is his intention rescue or abduction as he rows them both to safety upstream? He must surely be after her wealth, because no man could possibly want a woman as scarred as she.
