Scandalous and seductive, Lord Hawksmoor is a notorious fortune hunter. A man women want to bed–and men want to do away with. Now he has tasted the woman of his dreams, Catherine Fenton, and he will do anything to make her his. Though heiress to eighty thousand pounds, Catherine is trapped in a gilded cage, and duty bound to a man she detests. The ton has woven a fantasy around Ben, Lord Hawksmoor, that any woman would find hard to resist, but she senses there is more to the man behind the glittering facade.
She believes he can rescue her–but has she found her hero, or made a pact with the devil himself…?
This is the first time I have read one of Nicola Cornick’s books and I love the pacing of her story. The story line does not rush the relationship between Catherine Fenton and Ben Hawksmoor. In addition there are enough twists and turns to the story to keep it interesting. All in all a very enjoyable read.
