Review: From one of the most brilliant historical authors of our time comes the tale of Lady Victoria and Sebastian, two people who each want and crave a little certain something in life and both will not stop to get it.
Lady Veronica wants to taste the forbidden passion she craves and still be seen as a true lady. However she does not bet on her target for passion being so forceful in getting what he wants. Sebastian does not back down.
The fun really starts in this book as she gets more than what she bargains for in Sebastian; this is a tale of a true battle of wills. The author had me so captivated and entranced that I could not wait to get to the end of the book just to see the outcome. I loved every character and the way the author describes every single detail had me wishing I could be Lady Victoria so I could just grab Sebastian for myself. I loved how he was the ultimate historical to die for hero. He really crept into my heart and I loved how he showed Lady Victoria that she has indeed met her match.
With the author’s beautiful writing style you get taken back to a time where being a Lady and getting what and who you want with all the benefits and none of the complications prove to be very tempting indeed.
