I really liked the strong female character in this story and the wonderful hero. Great story in a story in a story so that the levels were wonderful to explore and hope for.
Our heroine, Lady Adriana St. Ives is a fallen woman. Five years ago, when her lover cast her aside and publicly denounced her, Adrianan's two brothers fought in a duel for her honor. Having killed the bastard son of the Prince, Julian and Gabriel fled the country to save their own lives. Only when she marries Tynan Spenser, an Irish Earl, do they return to try and save her once again. Arriving too late to prevent the wedding, Julian is incarcerated on the charges of murder. Fascinated by the woman he now calls his wife Tynan vows to help free her brother in exchange for her assistance in aiding him to gain a much coveted seat in the English House of Commons. Finding her a reserved but passionate creature he also vows to win her heart with one kiss a day for a hundred days. With so much at stake, Adrianan finds herself fighting her own womanly urges as her new husband has sworn to reawaken the passion she sees as her fatal flaw. Facing society after five years reawakes her old scandal, and as our couple deals with the animosity she must face for both her brother and to regain her own dignity, as a reader we watch her grow from a wallflower back into the raving beauty that she has hidden so well. But before Tynan and Adrianan can live happily ever after, the secret he guards with his own life must come out.
