I thought I had read the Wallflower and Ravenal books or at least a few but my kindle and Goodreads are telling me no. So I’m going to have to go and read them at some point so I can read all the couples in these story since they all have great chemistry and I want to know their origin stories. 

Lady Merritt runs her late husband’s business and that is where she meets Keir MacRae. Mr. MacRae keeps having bad luck with his shipment and she offers him a place to stay and dinner.

After more run ins with bad luck that seem more like someone is attempting to murder him.  Lady Merritt’s relatives investigate. All the while Keir and Merritt have this growing chemistry that is getting very steamy.

There is a family secret that I’m sure comes up in other books that is revealed in this book and an injury that makes a relationship a little more complicated.

Lisa Kleypas is the Queen of historical romance and I thoroughly enjoyed this one! I see her recommended everywhere. Which of her books is your favorite?

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐💫

New York Times bestseller Lisa Kleypas returns with an enthralling and steaming romance between a widowed lady and a Scot on the run—who may have connections to one of London’s most noble families.

“The devil never tries to make people do the wrong thing by scaring them. He does it by tempting them.”

Lady Merritt Sterling, a strong-willed young widow who’s running her late husband’s shipping company, knows London society is dying to catch her in a scandal. So far, she’s been too smart to provide them with one. But then she meets Keir MacRae, a rough-and-rugged Scottish whisky distiller, and all her sensible plans vanish like smoke. They couldn’t be more different, but their attraction is powerful, raw and irresistible.

From the moment Keir MacRae arrives in London, he has two goals. One: don’t fall in love with the dazzling Lady Merritt Sterling. Two: avoid being killed.

So far, neither of those is going well.

Keir doesn’t know why someone wants him dead until fate reveals his secret connection to one of England’s most powerful families. His world is thrown into upheaval, and the only one he trusts is Merritt.

Their passion blazes with an intensity Merritt has never known before, making her long for the one thing she can’t have from Keir MacRae: forever. As danger draws closer, she’ll do whatever it takes to save the man she loves… even knowing he might be the devil in disguise.
