    Good story, I love a story that has a steady flow this one seemed to jump from one part to another.
  • Rated PG to R

    By Dog mystery lover
    There were a couple of holes left open in this story that might be explained later in a sequel. There is some language and in the last chapter, an R rated sex scene. Other than that, story is basically well written. I'm not sure if I will read the sequels or not at this time.
  • Wonderful first book in the series!

    By Teri Donaldson
    This book starts with a young and foolish Lady Viola, who as a debutante, inspired a duel between two brothers that did not end well for either. She has been spending the years since that event in seclusion, raising foals and helping disadvantaged children. Brock returned to his estate to find a wife, fill the barn with foals and seek revenge for his brothers' death. When he met Lady Viola while purchasing the foals, he was unaware that it was the same women responsible for their deaths. My heart hurt for Lady Viola. While she inspired the duel, the bothers were responsible for their own actions. She tried to work hard, give back and live her life without trouble. She did not want romance in her life, yet her father thought it was time for her to re-introduce herself to society and find a husband. She was so trusting of those close to her and did not want to go back to the life of the ton. Sadly, the choice was not for her to make. Christina McKnight brought all of the characters to life with her words. At one point, and I won't share which one, I actually cried. It's rare that an author can do that to do with his/her words. I loved this book and hope that you will to.
