Publisher's Summary

Can love heal a wounded army officer who doesn’t believe it exists? 

Lady Rachel St. Clair has witnessed how powerful love can be, thanks to the example her brother and wife set, and she won’t settle for anything less. At a house party, Rachel meets an officer returning from the Peninsular War and believes she may have found love, thanks to their clandestine midnight lessons in kissing. 

Major Evan Drake, Marquess of Merrick, witnessed his father murder his mother and believes love doesn’t exist. He’s returned from combat wounded in both body and soul. When he meets Rachel he changes his mind about love, drawn to the raven-haired beauty’s spirit. Yet, Rachel devastates him by rejecting him before he can declare his feelings for her, sending Evan into a downward spiral that almost ends in death. 

Nursing her broken heart, Rachel continues her search for love the next season, though her thoughts linger on those midnights with her marquess. 

Will Evan be able to regain Rachel’s trust - and open his heart to love?

GREAT NARRATION!!

I am beginning to believe that Alexa Aston is a master storyteller!! She weaves together stories with deep characters and intense storyline plots.

Bk.2 of The St. Clair series is about Lady Rachel St. Clair. sister to Jeremy the Duke of Everton. Rachel is in her first season and will not except any of the many offers of marriage she has received until the end of the season. But she has learned from her best friend, sister by marriage, Leah all the ways of kissing. Using ones tongue has become very interesting to Rachel. Leah is a major character in the story. She is the sister of Catherine the Duchess of Everton.

Major Evan Drake, Marquess of Merrick and heir to the Duke of Winstead has returned to England after losing his entire regiment and being severely wounded in the Peninsular War in Spain. Once back in England on his way to his estate Edgemere he decides to stop at his best friend Lord Alford's estate Fairfield. Lord Alford is hosting a House Party to introduce his fiancée Leah. Merrick is encouraged to stay for the party. There he sees Rachel talking to Leah about kissing. After Leah leaves Merrick reveal's and introduces `himself to Rachel. Rachel ask him to teach her all the ways of kissing and Evan agrees.

Evan and Rachel have and uphill climb to there HEA. The problem I did have with the story was turning Evan into an acholic. The couples separation of 10 months. What happen to Laurence the cousin that character was dropped all together. I also, would have like more attention played to the fact that Evan would one day become the Duke of Winstead. Why Did the author let the murder of Evans mother just disappear in the storyline? This is the reasons the story gets 4 stars instead of 5 stars.
