This is a deeply emotional and action-packed romance. The ugliness of the Earl of Huntsbridge’s life comes to the forefront as it conversely effects the woman whom he wants to make his countess. It shows the madness and depraved effects of the life he was living with his friend, Lord Grayson. How ruined a woman can become in Regency society, by the games licentious men play with societies innocent women.This story is not light-hearted, but emotionally charged. It made me extremely aware of the depravity our society plays with and the damage it does emotionally to its victims.
