Lukas Hawkins is on a mission to find out who took his mother. He believes her to be kidnapped and has traveled all over England and Wales in search of her. He has finally found a lead and is in a local inn waiting for information on Roger Morton. While waiting at the inn he spies a beautiful woman and wants to forget his troubles for a while. When he invites her to his room he gets more than he bargained for.
Emma Curtis is a widow with a mission of her own. She is also on the hunt for Roger Morton as she believes he led to her families ruin. She is in the inn hoping to join forces with Lukas in his search for Roger Morton. She has some information that she believes will take them to him.
Lukas reluctantly gives into Emma’s demands and the two of them begin a journey that will change the course of their futures forever. As they continue their journey Lukas and Emma begin to explore the desires that burn between them.
When they arrive back in London Emma makes an unsettling discovery that could mean the end of her relationship with Lukas. Lukas won’t give Emma up without a fight and vows to find a way for them to be together.
This story is one of the steamiest historical romance stories that I have read in a while. Lukas is into bondage and what he indulges in with Emma is quite hot. There is something really sexy about Lukas Hawkins. He is your typical rogue but he is a real sweetheart when it comes to Emma.
Emma is a delight! She is very strong woman that will do whatever is needed to provide for her family. I was so happy when she gave into temptation and joined Lukas in bed! She needed someone that was worthy of her love and devotion and that is Lukas.
This is my first time reading a book by Jennifer Haymore and I am certain that this will be the start of many more!
From the Author:
Lukas Hawkins, the second son of the troubled House of Trent, is on a mission: find his missing mother and her alleged kidnapper, a brute named Roger Morton. If bringing the villain to justice means breaking a few laws, then so be it. But when he encounters a mysterious stranger with the face of an angel and a body made for sin, Luke suddenly finds his task-and his heart-in peril.
Emma Curtis knows of Lord Lukas’s rakish reputation-and hopes to use it to her advantage. While most men of honor would never travel alone with an unmarried woman, Luke is quite willing to take Emma on the road . . . and into his bed. As their journey carries them to unexpected places, Luke and Emma indulge their every passion and share their most private fantasies. But just when their deepest desires are finally within reach, a secret is revealed that threatens to end their love forever . . .
