Wow, this was 5+ stars. An incredible story with two very strong and amazing characters. The secondary characters are all well done too. The H&H are not like those in any other romance I have ever read. Possibly the best thing Putney has ever written, and a top notch example of the "reformed rake" story. She does not take the easy way out, because her H&H both make mistakes and do things that could be dealbreakers, yet they remain likeable and you are rooting for them all the way through. This is not a light book, although there is some humor. It's very emotionally intense. The rake's reform is quite realistic and does not happen overnight, but by the end you really feel he has earned his HEA.

In short, I loved this book. If you haven't read it, get it right away!
