Back Cover Blurb:

She won’t be tamed.
A fiery, unconventional Scot, Adaira Ferguson wears breeches, swears, and has no more desire to marry than she does to follow society’s dictates of appropriate behavior. She trusts no man with the secret she desperately protects.

He can’t forget.
Haunted by his past, Roark, The Earl of Clarendon, rigidly adheres to propriety, holding himself and those around him to the highest standards, no matter the cost. Betrayed once, he’s guarded and leery of all women.

Mistaking Roark for a known spy, Adaira imprisons him. Infuriated, he vows vengeance. Realizing her error, she’s appalled and releases him, but he’s not satisfied with his freedom. Roark is determined to transform Adaira from an ill-mannered hoyden to a lady of refinement.
He succeeds only to discover, he preferred the free-spirited Scottish lass who first captured his heart.

My Review:

I don’t remember the last time that I laughed so hard while reading. The banter, antagonism, and at times cooperation between the main characters was absolutely priceless. At the same time, Cameron had me near tears at times, and always wrapped up in this intricate tale. The characters’ pasts and presents collide as they fight against forces outside their control.

I love the way that Cameron brings her two main characters together. They both had secrets that slowly come out into the open, but above that, they were fantastic matches to one another. They both balanced and accepted one another. And their chemistry was off the charts. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know this whole cast, they were all so much fun and such vibrant individuals.

Cameron has definitely created a winning novel with this one. It was a lot of fun to read and also priceless as an audio book. No matter which format you choose, this novel is definitely a must read.
