Renowned beauty Lady Linnet is torn between two desires: revenge on those who destroyed her family, or marriage to her childhood sweetheart, Sir James Rayburn. One fateful night, she makes a misguided choice: she sacrifices Jamie's love for a chance at vengeance.
Jamie Rayburn returns to England in search of a virtuous wife - only to find the lovely Linnet as bewitching as ever. Their reckless affair ignites anew, even hotter than before, although Jamie vows to never again trust her with his heart. Then just as Linnet begins to make amends, she's tempted by one last opportunity to settle old scores. But a final retribution could cost her Jamie's love - this time forever.

"As in the previous book in her All the King's Men series, Mallory brings history to life, creating dramatic and gut-wrenching stories. Her characters are incredibly alive and [listeners] will feel and believe their sensual and passionate adventures. Mallory raises the genre to new levels." (RT Book Reviews)
I like reading books that have historical facts. It makes you want to research and learn about the characters in the story. I enjoyed reading all the books in this series and after each book, I found myself browsing the internet for more facts about the King Henry V and his wife. So many things in the series written based on real facts.
The main characters are very engaging personalities. Both are strong, stubborn and willful characters. You listen to the book and feel every feeling the characters feel..the jealousy, fear, and love, and etc and just can’t stop wondering what’s going to happen next. The story is wonderfully written!!! I can’t wait to read Mallory’s next book.
