Two hearts steeped in scandal . . .
When an unexpected inheritance elevates her family to the ranks of the aristocracy, Amelia Hathaway discovers that tending to her younger sisters and wayward brother was easy compared to navigating the intricacies of the ton. Even more challenging: the attraction she feels for the tall, dark, and dangerously handsome Cam Rohan.
Wealthy beyond most men’s dreams, Cam has tired of society’s petty restrictions and longs to return to his “uncivilized” Gypsy roots. When the delectable Amelia appeals to him for help, he intends to offer only friendship—but intentions are no match for the desire that blindsides them both. But can a man who spurns tradition be tempted into that most time-honored arrangement: marriage? Life in London society is about to get a whole lot hotter . . .
Cam has a diamond stud in one ear, rings on his fingers. He’s tall and dark and handsome. He’s funny, smart, and rich! Like, he’s perfect! If Amelia ever loses her mind and doesn’t want him, I’ll gladly throw myself at his feet.
Okay, enough swooning over the perfect human that is Cam and on to the story. This follows the quirky family of Hathaways as they get themselves hitched. I relate so hard to Amelia, being the one to care for her family and hating not to have control and wanting everything for her family. That was me, only mine were my parents and younger sister that I had to take care of.
Point being, I adored both Amelia and Cam. Honestly, my favorite part is how Amelia has Cam to lean on. She’s so strong and has to endure so much for her family that having him to lean on really gives her that support she needed so badly. I long to find a someone I can lean on one day. It’s so tiring having to be the strong person for everyone all the time.
Besides the wonderful romance this novel has, it also has this really cool, ghost haunting going on between Amelia’s older brother and his dead fiancée. Not something I’ve read before in a historical romance and I adored it!
I am in love with the Hathaways! I love their quirks and how funny they are. Also, their bad luck just makes for laugh out loud moments.
A huge bonus is seeing the wallflowers back with their husbands. I just love them all so much that it makes my little black heart so happy.
This is the start of a magnificent series that I can’t wait to dive more into.
