He is her most wicked fantasy . . . and no proper suitor for a lady.
Since the night Trey Deverill's stunning kiss melted her senses, Antonia Maitland has harbored a fascination for the infamous adventurer. But Deverill is nothing Antonia needs in a husband, and when he abducts her-for her own protection-and then shockingly proposes marriage, a battle of wills ensues that proves dangerously irresistible.
Antonia's charming wit and vibrant beauty make her England's most sought-after heiress. Yet it's her fiery spirit and awakening sensuality that stir a need in Deverill so fierce he would challenge the devil himself to possess her.
From the glittering ballrooms of London to the splendor of the Cornish coast, Deverill sweeps Antonia into unforgettable passion. But a treacherous plot threatens their lives and their chance for the grandest adventure of all: true love.
This one was dull. Then why did I finish it? Well honestly I was too lazy and preggo to get another book. Too far away! I was all, whatever I can just finish it. And I did skim quite a lot in the second half. They were doing it all the time anyway and not a lot happened.
That was a problem. After 150 pages or so not a lot happened. It was more them smexing and considering he wanted to protect her from a murderer I had expected a bit more suspense. It was just them, and even if other people were around none stood out. Side characters really should stand out a bit too, that is how you think ohhh I want to read his book! Her book!
So all in all, a disappointment.
