I enjoyed this story greatly and found it hard to stop reading. It starts with a bang, races through more danger with a lot of trust and love growing between Emma and Alistair. Emma is so innocent yet trusts Alistair from the beginning. Alistair, despite being a member of the Wicked Earls' Club, actually impressed me with his consideration for others and Emma's predicament. Madge, Alistair's mother, is a quirky character, and I enjoyed her. I highly recommend this book.
I received this story as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.
