But when Fiona arrived at the appointed destination, she was met by Dominic Lynsted, Duke of Holburn, the man she had dreamed of for a whole year. His face was the one that gave her hope as she found herself on her own after her parents' death. She cherished the memory of seeing Dominic at a ball. But he did not remember her. Dominic had come to meet a Spanish Ex-Patriot who had betrayed him more than a decade ago. While both Dominic and Fiona were trying to grasp this unexpected turn of events, three gunmen broke in on them. And there begins an adventure and mystery that throws Dominic and Fiona together fighting for their life.
Cathy Maxwell has created a perfect romantic mystery, full of adventure, humor, love and action. The characters are mature, worthy and loveable. Wow! What a fun read. Be warned, however, you will want to read this straight through. :-)
