This was an ARC that I received for review. I am a fan of Miranda Neville’s books and this one did not disappoint. Caro Townsend is a widow who shocked the ton by running away at the age of seventeen and marrying a bad boy. Now that her husband is dead and left her almost penniless she is struggling to find her place. She brings her cousin, Anna, who is an heiress to love with her. That is how she meets Thomas Fitzcharles, Duke of Castleton. Thomas pays a call on the ladies because he is searching for a wealthy heiress and Anna fits the bill. What he doesn’t expect to find is the beautiful and passionate Caro. Where Caro is exciting and loving, Thomas is conservative and ducal. It’s amazing to see Thomas fall under her spell and grow as a man.
This is a beautifully written story that involves amazing artists, beautiful hearts, crazy friends and love. I give it 4.5 stars and recommend it to all.
