This is my favourite book by Darcy Burke so far. Each book just keeps getting better and better and I really enjoyed this one.
I think what set this book apart from the others was the heroine Lady Philippa, she was briefly in His Wicked Heart and I am glad she has got her own story. I liked that she wasn't afraid to go after what she wanted, and it was a refreshing change to have the heroine in pursuit. Sevrin as well was in His Wicked Heart and though they are an unlikely couple I think they were very good together, Sevrin was unexpectedly honorable after hearing all about his reputation, and Philippa was unexpectedly wicked!
The only thing that I didn't really like was that I felt the book dragged a little bit towards the end. The beginning of the book was great, it really pulled me in, but I found as the book went on it started to feel a little long winded.
A great read with a gorgeous tortured hero and a surprisingly plucky heroine, I can't wait to read Ms Burke's next book.
