Everyone thinks Velvet Moran is a wealthy heiress. The truth is, she needs a husband in order to get to her dowry and pay off her deceased father's enormous debts. She thinks she has made the perfect match with Avery Sinclair, the duke of Carlyle. Little does she know that he is marrying her for her money as well. As she is on her way to the home of her betrothed, a highwayman kidnaps Velvet. He promises her safe return when her ransom is paid, but Velvet suspects there is far more to his story than that. Though she fights him at every turn, she is drawn to her mysterious abductor. Jason Sinclair vowed to avenge his father's death and restore his good name eight years ago. His greedy half-brother Avery killed their father and framed Jason for the murder. Escaping death, Jason survived those long, hard years-but the scars on his body are nothing compared to the scars on his soul. With the help of a friend, Jason has concocted a plan to bring Avery to ruin. Part of that plan involves a very attractive young woman named Velvet. Jason knows he can never have anything to do with Velvet but his desire for her is nearly as strong as his need for revenge. If he can allow himself to let down his guard, Velvet may be able to heal the scars and show him how to love. Highest praise goes to Kat Martin for her wonderful new novel Nothing But Velvet. Romance and suspense keep readers on the edge of their seats in this tautly drawn tale. Jason is stunning as the brooding hero with a tender heart. He meets his match in the strong, capable Velvet.

I liked the general plot, but there's very graphic violence that really hindered my enjoyment of the book. One might argue that it helped to explain the pain the hero dealt with, but it just went too far, in my opinion.
This book brought me so close to tears, it was incredible! Decadent love scenes as always, from Kat Martin; easy-to-imagine characters; lovable hero and heroine; perfect ending. Loved this story from start to finish.
