My favorite trope of the Wounded/Scarred hero comes alive in the story and warmed my heart! A broken man after his wife died in a fire and her was scarred, Miles, Earl of Stratford, preferred to sit in the dark and only do business deals. Not get back into society. His brother in law and Prince Rudolf Kazanov came to talk to him about a deal, but all they could do was urge him to get back into society and find a wife. Little did he know, that wife would come to him in the form of Kazanov's cousin, Princess Amber. She had to flee Russia or her uncle was going to sell her off as a slave. All she wanted was to quickly find a husband and marry before her uncle found her. Of course her cousin thought of Miles and quickly took her to see him. A story of loss, danger, a villian, mystery and a long journey to happy ever after with several twist and turns! I read this through Booksprout. Lori D

There is a lot in this tale. A princess in danger and needing a husband and a man dealing with the loss of his wife are the leading characters in this charming story. There is a lot in this tale and it seems to go on forever it is a very intense story. Do give yourself time to read a rush read would not do justice to this tale. I found it entertaining and very glad I took the time to reading this piece. I did receive a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it.

I actually really enjoyed reading this book, I found it entertaining and it had my complete attention. All the characters became real to me and between the heartbreak and the heartache, there was humour, passion, intrigue, danger and love. It also has one of my favourite tropes....a scarred/wounded hero!! My heart went out to Miles, having lost his wife in a fire and being left quite scarred while trying to save her. For 4 years he's shunned going out in society and lives in darkness. When Princess Amber enters his life and asks for his help, he finds himself unable to refuse her. She's the light to his darkness but he's been mourning his dead wife for so long, he's forgotten what to do with that light. I loved Amber's character, such an innocent and yet strong heroine who has always felt alone and unloved. This is their story and how two lost souls finally find each other!! I received an ARC of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
