There is a lot of darkness in this story. I loved it. Tragic pasts, uncomfortable presents, and a love that sees through it all. Adaira was a strong woman, hiding from a painful past, until she ran afoul of Roark, and her life changes her into a more complex woman. Roark is a man trying to protect his family name but is generous and caring. He uses propriety to keep things running smoothly, yet he understands Adaira once he comes to know her. These two are opposites that I am glad became attracted to each other despite their differences. I enjoyed listening to this story and look forward to reading and listening to more of Collette Cameron's stories.
I received a copy of this audiobook as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.
