In Night Fire, Arielle Leslie is a 16-year-old forced to wed Paisley Cochrane, a sadistic old man who abuses her. When he dies, she believes herself free. But she’s not. Burke Drummond, Earl of Ravensworth, a young man she’d worshipped three years before, is home from the wars, and he wants her. Together they face problems and obstacles never spoken of in the Regency time.
In the top 20, because I have listened to a lot of them that I just absolutely cannot say a horrible word about.
