Goodreads

When Niall Lindsey, the Earl of Margrave, is forced to flee after killing a man in a duel, he expects his secret love, Brilliana Trevor, to go with him, or at the very least wait for him. To his shock, she does neither and sends him off with no promise for the future. Seven years and one pardon later, Niall returns to England disillusioned and cynical. And being blackmailed by the government into working with his former love to help catch a counterfeiter connected to her father doesn’t improve his mood any. But as his role as Brilliana’s fake fiancé brings his long-buried feelings to the surface once again, he wonders who is more dangerous—the counterfeiter or the woman rapidly stealing his heart.

Forced to marry another man after Niall was exiled, the now widowed Brilliana wants nothing to do with the reckless rogue who she believes abandoned her to a dreary, loveless life. So having to rely on him to save her father is the last thing she wants, much less trusts him with....But as their scheme strips away the lies and secrets of their shared past, can she let go of the old hurt and put her pride aside? Or will the pleasures of their renewed passion finally enable them both to rediscover love?

Read for Review (Publisher)

I have read and loved all the Sinful Suitors series, but this one might be my favorite. Niall Lindsey fought and killed a man in a duel for good reason. He must flee to Europe and wants his love, Brilliana, to come with him. She refuses to go with him as her mother is very ill. Seven years later he is pardoned, but the government insists he work for them on a case that involves Brilliana’s father, Sir Oswald Payne.

Brilliana is now a widow with a young son. Attending her friend Clarissa’s dinner party, she discovers Clarissa “forgot” to tell her that Niall would also be attending. After Niall left England, she was told lies about him and is glad she did not accompany him. Between Niall, her father and her husband she has learned not to trust men.

Niall’s friend and England’s spymaster, Lord Fulkham, has a “job” for the two of them involving her father and forged banknotes. She tries to tell them she is not close to her father, but if he arrests her father she and her son will have to deal with the scandal. Forced to accept Lord Fulkham’s “request” she and Niall are forced to spend time together and….
Yes, eventually there is a HEA, but I will not tell you how they get there. This is a wonderful story and I hope I’ve enticed you to try it.

Thank you to the publisher for giving me an ARC. They did not ask or require me to write a favorable review. I loved this book!
