Lady Eleanor Ramsay is the only one who knows the truth about Hart Mackenzie. Once his fiancée, she is the sole woman to whom he could ever pour out his heart.

Hart has it all--a dukedom, wealth, power, influence, whatever he desires. Every woman wants him--his seductive skills are legendary. But Hart has sacrificed much to keep his brothers safe, first from their brutal father, and then from the world. He's also suffered loss--his wife, his infant son, and the woman he loved with all his heart though he realized it too late.

Now, Eleanor has reappeared on Hart's doorstep, with scandalous nude photographs of Hart taken long ago. Intrigued by the challenge in her blue eyes--and aroused by her charming, no-nonsense determination--Hart wonders if his young love has come to ruin him . . . or save him.

My Thoughts and Review

Have to say that Eleanor was my favorite character in this book and made it a whole lot of fun used to be engaged to hart MacKenzie many years ago but, someone came between them and upset there engagement and unfortunately it had ended not on a friendly note.

Many years later Eleanor still love her long lost Duke and comes to him when she starting receiving nude photos of him take when he was a young man, Being a Duke now and running for political office these photos must not surface and ruin his chance at something he has work so hard for all his driven life !

This story had many things going on in it.The Duke is a driven man with a tortured past who does what he does for his family of brothers. He is a hardened man who people fear.But, Eleanor is the only one who can thaw Harts heart and is also his weakness.This couple made a great pair and Eleanor is the one women strong enough to chip away at his heart of armor.She has quick whit and a sassy personality.

The other characters of the book make it successful too. Harts brothers are so different lending there personalities to the story as well and also there wives. The story had all the things that made a good book you laugh ,it had a mystery too it to solve,likable characters and a nice easy romance long over do.But,also the book had you feeling Harts real pain and suffering that you could relate to knowing he just needs the right women to heal him to have the same life that his brothers have .The book was part of a continuing series and an enjoyable read.

What was nice to see also in this story that was out of the ordinary was how Lady Eleanor Ramsay is not a up tight miss who follows the rules of society but a adventurous sort which will surprise you so your in for a real treat.As always looking forward to Jennifer's next novel...
