Sabrina Jeffries has done it again. A new series started with a wonderful story. Jeremy is an American artist who is looking for a model for his masterpiece, the one painting that has been his obsession and he has found her. Lady Yvette Barlow is a young debutante who has been betrayed in love and wants nothing to do with a scoundrel like Jeremy. He is a a very talented painter and a rogue who spends his time in the seedier of the London brothels. But Yvette has a problem that she needs help with and talks Jeremy into helping her and in exchange she will model for him. They both have had past relationships that have made them wary and unsure, and they do not trust themselves to act on their feelings even though the attraction is mutual and getting more difficult to ignore the more time they spend with each other.
This story has everything you would want in a historical romance, suspense, heart wrenching emotions, redemption for both Yvette and Jeremy, a sexual attraction that sizzles so hot I had to stop reading and take deep breaths, and a love so deep that it will overcome all obstacles in it's path. I have been reading Sabrina Jeffries for years and her writing just keeps getting better and better. I will always pick up any book that has her name on it. She has always been a shining star in the Historical Romance Genre and I cannot wait for the next book in the series.
Received an ARC for an honest review.
