A favor led him to servitude…
Servitude led him to love.
Lewis Haywood is the Marquess of Lamont, but one would never know by looking at him.
During the last two years of service to the Duke of Wardington, he has become as jaded as one who was born on the roughest streets of London.
With two years down and only three to go, Lewis is looking forward to freedom and won’t let anything distract him during his latest assignment.
But as fate would have it, distraction comes in the form of a young boy whose lavender eyes are more than familiar.
Lewis has a son he never knew existed!
And there’s only one woman to blame…
Lady Phoebe Gillard fled England eight years ago with a broken heart and with a child the father never wanted.
When Lewis finds out about their son, everything changes …
Phoebe finds herself falling for the very man she vowed to never love again.
But when the flames of love are rekindled, both turn to face their last and biggest change.
The Duke of Wardington.
He knows all and see all.
He won’t let Lewis go without a fight.
He demands all debts to paid.
And when the time comes, Phoebe and Lewis might find themselves paying for that freedom with blood… or at the cost of their love.
How high of a price is this couple willing to pay to be together?
And can anyone truly be free of the Duke of Wardington?
This book is quite different from the previous books in the Wardington Park novels. There is the fact of a previous physical relationship between the hero and heroine and a resulting pregnancy.
Our hero was quite the rake when our heroine fell in love with him as a young lady making her debut. When she tells him she is with child he insists she get rid of it.
Now years later they meet again quite by accident in Paris.
Our hero, Lewis approaches a young boy who appears to have become lost from his mother and offers to help him.
When Phone sees the man with her son she immediately recognizes him and attempts to leave the shop without him realizing who she is and that her son is also his.
Will these two people find their way back to a love so tragically lost?
I loved this book and the characters, some of which we know from previous Wardington Park novels.
The storyline is well thought out and the characters are engaging.
The sensual nature is mostly implied rather than physical.
I gave this book 4.25 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 2.5 of 5 flames.
Thanks go to Eleanor Meyers for writing clean regency novels that are enjoyable.

But when Ocean’s mother calls, concerned that her daughter is wandering the mountain, he leaps into action.
Ocean is thrilled to be found…until she sees her savior. She’s known Titus Standish all her life, and has loved him almost that long. But at four years his junior, she was just a kid with a crush. When Titus finds her, he’s determined to march her back down the mountain to safety. But Ocean has other plans; she’ll be damned if she’ll give up this trek. Yet all trails seem to lead to one place…straight into Titus’s arms.
