Whether Eva Devon or Maire Claremont's name is on a book you know that it will be worth reading. This is the first book in a new series and I loved it. Maire's stories are more intense and this one is no exception. Jack is a man on a mission. Destroy the Chance family, especially the Duke who was responsible for his hellish childhood and the death of his best friend. Regan is the Duke's grand daughter who is in mourning for her father who was murdered. Regan is finishing what her father started, helping those less fortunate than her. She has taken over the project of building a hospital in the poorest of neighborhoods and a clean, happy place for children who are homeless to grow up. Her father never got along with his father the Duke because of his belief that all human beings have a right to a decent life, not just the rich and titled.
This is a story of what happens to the homeless children who have no one to look out for them and how they survive. A glimpse into the poverty and the struggle to stay alive. A story of vengeance, redemption, love and laughter. The growth of Jack and Regan and how they learn about each other and what they lived thru to become the people they realize they want to be. Not only is this an Historical Romance, it is also a raw and truthful look into the emotions that most would like to be kept hidden from the light of day. Maire gives you a look into the dark side of life in Regency England. This is an incredible story and you will be enthralled from beginning to end!!!
