Tristan Sinclair, the Viscount St. Ashton, a wealthy and infamously debauched reprobate, has avoided responsibility and family duty for years. While on his way to yet another bacchanalian country house party avoided by all respectable people, Tristan can hear the weeping of an angelic lady's companion. Valentine March's vulnerability touches him as nothing has before. Tristan's father arrives unexpectedly and presents him with an unwelcome ultimatum of being cut off financially, thereby aborting the festivities. When Valentine and Tristan are caught in an improper embrace, Tristan proposes not only to stave off financial disaster but to save her reputation. He soon finds himself yearning to be the man Valentine deserves, and when her parentage is scrutinized, a surprising turn of events takes place.
VERDICT Matthews (The Lost Letter) delivers a sweet, fast-paced read that will be appreciated by fans of Victorian romance.
