This is a wonderfully complex, compelling book that will keep you up reading it. I will admit that I have always liked the Scarlet Pimpernel story so I enjoyed his appearance in this book. This story contains a wonderful romance, danger, blackmail and accurate history.
Wonderful story! Damon Blackbourne, now Duke of Malford, has what we now call Tourette’s Syndrome. As a child, his father beat him and then sent him away. Luckily for him, the servants who took care of him treated him as a normal boy. His father and older brother are both deceased and he must take over the running of the estate and escorting his mother and sisters to London.

Christi has written a lot of very good books but this series (Sinful Brides) has been my favorite along with “My Lady of Deception” (Brethren of the Lords). This book is my favorite of the series, so far.
