This is book 2 of The Heirs and Scoundrels Trilogy. I didn’t read book #1 but recommend that you read the books in order. I think you would enjoy them even more that way. This book can however, be read as a stand alone. It is a wonderful feast for the mind and heart. Amelia Grey has created a story that proves be delightful, bewitching and well written.
I received this title Free through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
