Review by Jill Williamson
Madeline Whittington is still mourning the death of her father, even though the prescribed period of mourning has passed. She meets the Earl of Ravensmoore by chance, and recognizes him as one of the doctors responsible for her father’s death. He tried to tell her how it happened, but she will not hear him. Still, their friendship grows. Madeline’s mother remarries Lord Vale, a man Madeline does not trust. Madeline goes to Ravensmoore for assistance, which leads them both into great danger.
If you love romance stories in the Regency era, you’ll love this one. Kent pens a group of wonderfully complex characters and a plot so surprising and eerie that I couldn’t put the book down. I loved Ravensmoore’s character, and his desire to be a doctor despite his having the title of “earl.” I can’t wait to read whatever Jillian Kent writes next. Highly recommended.
