Stephen Hornsby, the Marquess of Clevedon, has one goal: to see every exquisite thing he can before he goes blind. His greatest joy, watching a woman shuddering in the throes of passion, will be gone. But before the darkness descends, he is determined to seduce a magnificent widow, Lady Penelope Fisherton. Unfortunately, his rakish reputation has preceded him; Lady Penelope spurns his advances. Being a man who relishes a challenge, however, her reluctance adds only luster to his desire for the last beautiful sight he’ll ever see.
Considered the belle of London society, Lady Penelope was married to a scoundrel who cared for no one but himself. Now that she’s free, she wants nothing to do with love, passion, or desire—emotions that abandoned her with a cruel husband. So why does her body react when Stephen smiles? As much as she’d like to avoid the rogue, her brother-in-law wants her fortune, and he’ll kill to get it. Stephen is willing to help, but he’ll take only one thing in return: Her. In his bed.
The first thing I need to do is thank NetGalley and Random House Loveswept for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.
I can’t say that Bronwen Evans hasn’t done it again because she totally has. Though things are looking rough and bleak for Steven with how he thinks he is losing his sight, but all that changes the second he meets Penelope. Penelope is having a hard time trying to figure out how she is going to clear her name from getting accused by her brother in law of doing some not so nice things. She makes plans to try and get Steven to help her, but what she doesn’t know is that she is going to end up falling for her savior. I love how these two help each other see how different the world can be.
