Lord Adam Dunsbourne is a tyrant. At least, that’s what everyone says. The tales are shocking: accounts of a man who gambled away the family fortune and keeps his younger sister, Emily, captive in their home at Dunsbourne Manor. So when Adam and his sister make an unexpected appearance at a dinner party, the scandalized whispers cannot be contained.
New to the town, Phoebe Hadford hears the condemning rumors and determines to do all she can to help the baron’s oppressed sister. Upon entering Dunsbourne Manor, however, she quickly discovers that all is not what she has been led to believe.
Adam, though unsure of whether he can trust the intentions of his beautiful neighbor, is quickly drawn in by Phoebe’s genuine nature. But even as Adam and Phoebe’s connection deepens, a dangerous enemy from Adam’s past reemerges. For years, Adam has hunted for the man who betrayed him, not realizing he had only to wait. His foe has returned, and this time, he will threaten everything Adam cherishes most―including the woman he loves.

Adam Norton, Lord Dunsbourne, was coming back into society after five years of absence, and with him, his lovely sister, Emily.
According to the gossip, Lourd Dunsbourne had gambled away his family fortune and kept his sister locked at home in less than desirable conditions.
Phoebe Hadford, Adam’s new neighbor, was appalled by Emily’s situation and decided to befriend her and help as much as possible.
Slowly, Adam and Phoebe discover that appearances can be deceiving, and they learn to put aside their prejudices and trust their instincts.
The story is beautifully written, heartwarming, and the scenery very charming. I enjoyed it immensely!
I am intent on reading all the previous books in the series. Highly recommended!
