Lady Alexandra Huntington has found herself ruined at young age. She was invovled in a scandal that left one man dead and another one on the run. She removed herself from London Society and thinks that she is content managing her brothers estate. After promising his dying father to find out what happened in that scandal that left his half brother dead, Collin Blackburn makes it his mission to find out what this Lady Alexandra had to do with everything that happened that night. He expects to find a strumpet, but soon finds out that Lady Alexandra is not at all what he thought and isn't prepared for the feelings he finds for her.
I really wanted to love this book. However, I had a hard time believing in the romance between Lady Alexandra and Collin. The story had all the right ingredients-but it just had one smokin love scene, and the two just too long to finally realize that they were meant to be together. I'll give this author another chance with one of her contemporaries which are supposed to be much better. I wish I could count this toward one of my challenges, but alas I finished this after Christmas. Edited to add: that I had just finished Karen Marie Monings Fever series right before starting this book, so that could be a huge reason why I wasn't that into it.
