OrangeReviewStarComing across poachers in his estate's home wood is not a surprise to scholarly Duncan Wentworth, but a gun-toting woman who appears just in time to help chase off the bad guys definitely is—and Duncan is not about to let someone so intriguing and desperately in need of help get away. But widowed duchess Matilda Wakefield is on the run, and while she reluctantly agrees to help Duncan with some translations, she has no intention of staying—fearing the secrets she carries could be dangerous to them both. An intelligent, resourceful heroine and a hero who comes into his own bond over fierce games of chess, spirited banter, rapier wit, and mutual attraction in a sweet, passionate romance that is sure to enchant.
VERDICT Graced with beautifully matched protagonists, a memorable supporting cast, effective use of multiple viewpoints, and a plot that unfolds with exquisite care, Burrowes's newest work delivers. Burrowes (My One and Only Duke) lives in rural Maryland.
