Jemina St. Maur owes a great deal to Daniel Thackeray, Earl of Ashbrook. Two years ago, the handsome barrister helped free her from Bedlam after she lost all memory. As far as Jemina knows, she is the only survivor of the shipwrecked Minerva. But Daniel is a man of many secrets, including the fact that his two-year-old adopted daughter is also a survivor of the Minerva. As a newly minted Black aristocrat, Daniel can’t afford to make any mistakes, and he’d do anything to protect his daughter. Helping Jemina, a white woman who wants answers about her past, risks exposing painful truths. But Daniel feels a strong sense of protectiveness, as well as attraction, toward the widow. Daniel and Jemina’s interactions are filled with witty banter and innuendo, and the hero’s tender interactions with his daughter will make readers swoon.
VERDICT Move over, Bridgertons. There’s a new set of scandalous aristocrats waiting to take London society by storm.
