Synopsis: Ash Turner has waited a lifetime to seek revenge on the man who ruined his family—and now the time for justice has arrived. At Parford Manor, he intends to take his place as the rightful heir to the dukedom and settle an old score with the current duke once and for all. But instead he finds himself drawn to a tempting beauty who has the power to undo all his dreams of vengeance….
Lady Margaret knows she should despise the man who's stolen her fortune and
her father's legacy—the man she's been ordered to spy on in the guise of a
nurse. Yet the more she learns about the new duke, the less she can resist his
smoldering appeal. Soon Margaret and Ash find themselves torn between old
loyalties—and the tantalizing promise of passion (from the back of the book)
Review: This is my first Milan novel and I rather enjoyed it. Her characters are well-rounded, intriguing, flawed and witty. I enjoyed the plot, although occasionally it was a bit flippy-floppy for my task. In the end, this is a satisfing novel, one I would recommend.
Prude Notes: The sex scenes are ordinary and avoidable, and not important to the story.
