Some whisper of a tragic love affair. Others say he is so aloof and passionless that not even the greatest beauty could capture his attention. But on this dazzling afternoon, one woman does catch the duke's eye - and she is the only female in the room who isn't even trying. Christine Derrick is intrigued by the handsome duke...all the more so when he invites her to become his mistress. But Christine has very definite views on men, morals, and marriage and confounds Wulfric at every turn. Yet even as the lone wolf of the Bedwyn clan vows to seduce her any way he can, something strange and wonderful is happening. Now for a man who thought he'd never lose his heart, nothing less than love will do.Read Less

This book is a great wrap-up of one of Ms. Balogh's best series. She does a credible revelation of Wulfric's supposedly unshakeable character. The character of Christine saves him from the de-humanizing effect of his duty-bound upbringing.
Plus Ms. Balogh always remembers to keep us abreast of the other family members she has created. One can't help loving the Bedwyns!

Best of Balogh
Balogh is writing at her very best in this book which ends a stellar series. Not only does she flesh out the Duke, someone who has been a mysterious yet slightly sympathetic character in the rest of the books, but she gives him the perfect mate, a woman whom he brilliantly helps and who helps him regain his humanity. This is a book to read over and over again, which is why it is my favorite Balogh novel.
