How romantic! When I read Julian's first love letter I just had to stop, close my eyes and savor the moment. Ahh, to have such a letter written to me...The villian was a nasty piece of work, just enough to keep things suspenseful. The ending scene was very appropriate to the title. A great love story!

England, probably Regency era. Continuing saga of Laclerc family members/friends. Their sister, Penelope, the Countess of Glasbury, after having left her violent, perverted husband ten years earlier, is now being pursued by him, the Earl of Glasbury, because he wants her back for his perverted pleasure and also for a much-needed heir. Penelope's knight in shining armor is Julian Hampton, her solicitor, who was the childhood friend/playmate of Penelope and her siblings. Madeline Hunter has again crafted a wonderful love story. I read everything she writes.

The title belies the darkness at the core of Hunter's Regency romance cum legal thriller, the fifth in a series that started with The Seducer.

As the earl's demands grow more insistentand violentJulian and Penelope must uncover her estranged husband's deepest secrets if she is ever to be free of him.

From the back cover

Fleeing Naples in disguise, the Countess of Gladsbury arrives at his room in the dead of night, never feeling more helpless or in need of him in her life. Now, as she desperately seeks freedom from a cruel and dangerous marriage, who could be a better ally than the darkly handsome and discreet solicitor whod kept all her secrets? He had always been her defender, her knight in shining armor. But one moment of reckless passion changes everything, and Pen realizes that no man could have been a mare dangerous choice of champion than Julian Hampton. She was his first, last, and only love, but even now, holding her as he always dreamed, Julian cant tell her the truth. Instead he must play the cool protector once again. For each stolen kiss, every forbidden embrace, could expose them to an enemy out to destroy them both-and to a love that would become a romantic legend

Love it very much. So well read, and sat in bookshelf so long the cover seperated from the book, but both are in great condition, honestly.
