A forbidden love and a chilling mystery tease the senses in this sensuous historical romance from the USA Today bestselling author of A Kiss of Lies and A Love to Remember.
Bookish and independent Lady Helen Hawkestone is expected to marry well. But, having grown up with warring parents, the institution holds little appeal. The trick, she realizes, is to marry for love—a task that’s easier said than done. Only while Helen is raising funds for her do-gooder sister’s orphanage does she meet a man who arouses her curiosity. Lowborn and yet so dignified that Helen can’t help but try to elicit a response, Clary Homeward is an enigma—a heart-stopping, body-stirring, forget-her-social-upbringing enigma.
A single offense against a noblewoman such as Lady Helen would ruin a man like Clary. Her sister, Marisa, rescued him from hellish poverty and employs him with her charity work. Try as he might to push her away, Helen tempts him to want things he could never have. But when girls from the orphanage start disappearing, destined for a grim fate Clary knows all too well, Helen insists on helping. And soon Clary wonders whether something more were not just possible but inevitable—even right.
Bronwen Evans has written another winner in this series.
This is book #8 in the Disgraced Lords series.
I have read several of them and they become more enjoyable with each addition.
I look forward to each new book.
Clary is so far below Helen in birth it seems inconceivable that they would be attracted to each other, but that is what has happened. Clary may be attracted to Helen but he must push her away because Helen’s mutual attraction to him could be his ruin.
When girls start disappearing from the orphanage Clary is helping with Helen wants to help. This isn’t a place for a lady like Helen. Clary can’t let her continue to be involved.
How will these mysterious disappearances of young girls end and will it throw Clary and Helen together?
I gave this mixture of love and mystery 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 3.75 of 5.0 flames. Our hero and heroine have a palpable attraction.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book to read and review.
This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

About The Author:
USA Today Bestselling author, Bronwen Evans (Bron), loves story-telling – gobbling up movies, reading books and attending the theater. Her head is always filled with characters and stories, particularly lovers in angst. Is it any wonder she’s a proud romance writer.Bronwen attended Victoria University, Wellington, New Zealand earning a bachelor’s degree in Commerce and Administration, majoring in Marketing and Accounting. She was all set on building herself a business career (which she did along the way).
But life never turns out exactly as one thinks. After working for a few years in marketing roles within New Zealand financial institutions, she left for a 6 month overseas experience in London, England. She loved England. She spent several years living in London, using it as a base to be able to work and travel from. She visited all four corners of the world. Her most interesting trips were a camel safari in the Sahara, a trip through Russia, a safari through Africa with her mother, and three months in the Mediterranean.
It was while living and working in London she discovered the offices of Mills & Boon and the germ of an idea to embark on a romance writing career was born.
Almost eight years later, on her return to New Zealand, encouraged by a close friend battling a life-threatening illness, Bronwen finally started down the path to publication by joining RWA, The Beau Monde, RWAustralia, and RWNZ.
Bronwen’s first manuscript, INVITATION TO RUIN, was completed late 2009, and was sold to Kensington Publishing early 2010, in a two book deal. Her debut novel, INVITATION TO RUIN, received a 4.5 star rating from RT Book Reviews and was nominated in the RT Reviewer’s Choice Awards – Best First Historical. Invitation to Ruin also won the RomCon Readers Crown Best Historical 2012.
Bron’s since gone on to win the RomCon Readers Crown three times. Her first book in her Disgraced Lords series hit the USA Today bestsellers list and she has hit it several times since.
She lives in New Zealand in sunny Hawkes Bay with her two Cavoodles named Brandy and Duke.

A quick-witted, funny Highland lass…a clever Englishman with a dangerous secret…and a cold-blooded assassin hoping to end their romance before it even begins.
A Handsome Man With a Terrible Secret…
A man used to hiding things and sneaking around, Captain Henry Quinn may just be in over his head this time. He’s on the run, hiding from a deadly assassin, and the most unexpected thing imaginable happens: he falls in love. He is now faced with an impossible decision: He can tell her everything and risk her life along with his, or he can leave her behind like she never existed…knowing that his heart will be forever shattered.
A Noblewoman Promised to Another…
Beautiful Amice MacConnoway is no stranger to dangerous turns of events, and her family seems predisposed to crazy romantic stories. So when she meets the handsome stranger, she is not shocked to discover her heart is immediately drawn to him. However, knowing that she’s promised to a dull man she’s known her whole life is a big problem, and she can’t imagine announcing to her family that she’s broken their arrangement for marriage to a foreigner.
Now They’re on the Run…Together!
Henry is used to life on the run, but when the inn they’re both visiting burns, he quickly finds himself running for his life with a beautiful woman by his side. To be caught would be death for them both, but to stay hidden could mean the death of another nature: her reputation would be in tatters. It would mean the end of romance for the Highland beauty, and if he can’t have her, he would wish nothing but happiness and love for her future.
Now the spy has some terrible options before him, and either could mean disaster for their future. Risk it all for the sake of love? Or throw it away and live to see another day?
Should the headstrong lass allow her feelings for the handsome foreigner to cloud her judgment, and does he truly love her enough to risk separation from her family for their happiness and possible death if she’s captured with him?

Four sweeping Scottish historical romances from bestselling author Amy Jarecki:
The Fearless Highlander
Grieving from the death of his wife, Lord Colin Campbell listens to the cries of his newborn son whilst penning a missive to the king. With no marriage prospects, Colin petitions his majesty for help in finding a stepmother. Never again will he fall in love—the death of a woman brings more pain than losing a whole contingent of men on the battlefield.
Feisty, quick tongued and smart, Margaret Robinson is delighted when her father receives a messenger from the king…until she discovers what news he brings. In a sennight, she will wed the notorious Black Knight—her life is about to end.
Tension builds during the wedding and deteriorates from there…until an accident draws them together. Just when their love begins to blossom, a dire request arrives from the Pope. Colin must join the Crusades at once.
Their fragile love is forced to withstand the seductions of hell—Margaret tempted by a scoundrel laird—Colin courted by Satan himself. Aye, the war for Christendom could very well ruin their dreams forever.
