Lady Ella Myerston can always find a reason to smile--even if it's just in hope that tomorrow will be better than today. All her life everyone has tried to protect her from the realities of the world, but Ella knows very well the danger that has haunted her brother and their friend, and she won't wait for it to strike again. She intends to take action . . . and if that happens to involve an adventurous trip to the Cotswolds, then so much the better.
Lord Cayton has already broken two hearts, including that of his first wife, who died before he could convince himself to love her. Now he's determined to live a better life. But that proves complicated when old friends arrive on the scene and try to threaten him into a life of crime. He does his best to remove the intriguing Lady Ella from danger, but the stubborn girl won't budge. How else can he redeem himself, though, but by saving her--and his daughter--from those dangerous people who seem ready to destroy them all?
Wow, this book was amazing! Ella and Cayton are wonderful characters that made me fall in love with them almost right from the start. I was captivated from the first page on and even though I didn't know the other books in the series, I had no problems at all to get into the story (only to find afterwards that somehow the other books found their way onto my wishlist because, well, I just have to read them!).
The story itself was fast-paced and intriguing, full of suspense and adventure, I really loved all the twists and turns and I couldn't wait to find out how things end! It was a complex and well plotted story that really kept me glued to my reader. Readers who were lucky enough to read the first books in the series will be delighted to hear that you'll have the chance to meet again all those characters that you've met in the other books and find out how their stories go on. And of course you'll find out more about the Fire Eyes and the secrets and the danger around them...
This is also an inspirational book but the tone of the book is never preaching or overly moral which makes it a very delightful and enjoyable read. I must admit that I'm always a bit wary of inspirational books because some of them tend to overdoing things and setting a tone that is far too much like wagging a finger at all those who don't share this kind of strong belief or the story suffers from it. This is definitely not the case with this book. I really enjoyed reading it and I know that this wasn't the last book by this author either!
