Cedric, Viscount Sheridan, is cursed. Once the ton's golden boy, the loss of his sight has left him a reclusive shell of man, his days of womanizing, horse racing, and pistol shooting lost forever. Offered the chance to recapture a small part of his old life, he can't refuse - even if it means accepting the shocking proposal of the infamous ice maiden Anne Chessley.
Still reeling from her father's death, Anne's deepest wish is to avoid the hordes of fortune hunters who will soon be beating down her door. Proposing marriage to Cedric is an act of desperation, his unexpected acceptance a strange and wonderful dream. His only stipulation: She must respond passionately and wantonly in his bed. Her agreement barely crosses her lips before he begins a sensual assault on the icy walls bitter secrets have built around her heart. Yet even as they catch a glimpse of true happiness, betrayal is poised to sweep them away on opposing tides of danger.

The knowledge of the characters in the previous books in the series. You want to know what happens next. You know they will have to deal with their enemy and you don't know how they will be attacked.
When Anne approached Cedric in the garden and realized he had fallen and hurt himself. Your heart goes out to Cedric and you can appreciate Anne's sympathy. I felt so sad for Cedric when he was at the dinner table and spilt the wine. He was so embarrassed.
The narration is just alright. Sometime you can't distinguish between the characters, male or female.
Overall the series so far is very good. When the Rogues and their wives come together and socialize and tease each other, you can see it in your mind's eye. I like the way Jonathan's characters is being developed. I also enjoy the ongoing relationships between the other men and their wives e.g. the passion between Godric and Emily continues, I like that. Also I can't wait to find out what happens to Hugo Waverly.
I'm usually a fan of the Rogue Series, but this book had too many stories. with too much detail going on at the same time. At the beginning everything was great. Then a few chapters in other storyline were introduced. That's not usually a problem but it was difficult to figure out how they were connected to the main story.
