Review


Can Catherine win her Ancestral home back in a wager between herself and the Duke of Boulstridge? Or as the duke believes, is her incorrect background keeping her from winning the wager?


Broadfield gives an excellent sense of balance to her plot with just the right amount of mystery, angst, suspense, romance, and thrills. The plot is great with its kinks and surprises. The ending is in my humble opinion splendid. It just makes for my perfect historical romance, not following the typical romance script so to say. I highly recommend the book and wish to give nothing more away than the publishers back cover or description at the book store sites online. Definitely worth the five and worth the time to read. Hope you enjoy as much as I did.

Historical romance with a great mystery, plenty of angst, a grand comeuppance (but whose?), a literally killer suspense, and plenty of wonderful characters, if you like this in a novel, then you are going to be one happy reader!
