I loved this book! It is a thrilling story of the 1800s in England. Just when you think that you've figured out the plot- it changes! John Raven is a fabulous character, as is Lady Catherine Montfort- Raven's total opposite! A great read!
American merchant John Raven had stolen the toast of the London season out from under the ton's very nose! He had offered the lovely Lady Catherine freedom in exchange for marriage and she'd accepted despite her fathers assertion he'd rather see the interloping colonial dead than wed to his daughter.
