A marriage of convenience flames into a treacherous, passionate liaison in best-selling author Amanda Scott's spellbinding Regency tale
As the third and last unwed daughter of an earl, Lady Anne Davies doesn't expect her marriage to be a love match. She is in need of a husband. Lord Michael St. Ledgers needs a woman to run his home and be a mother to his orphaned niece and nephew. It seems the ideal business arrangement.
When Anne travels to Michael's ancestral estate, the Priory, deep in the Derbyshire countryside, she starts to uncover his disturbing secrets. Michael's brother perished under mysterious circumstances, and now someone at the Priory is stalking her. As Anne begins to fear for her life, she realizes that the greatest danger may come from the man she has come to trust - and love.

Great start, very awful ending
The first 80% of this book were thoroughly enjoyable. There were a number of good characters, very entertaining supporting characters and some excellent dialogue. The story started of very strong as well. The tension between the couple was palpable, the descriptions believable. I really liked the way it was going and was looking forward to continue the story. But.
- Minor spoilers -
As the story progressed it became increasingly clear that the hints which were thrown out to confuse the reader were actually nonsensical when viewed in retrospective. I can always overlook plot weaknesses and hair raising impossibilities, but I cannot forgive when authors sacrifice the integrity of their characters only to throw readers off the scent.
Insofar, Lord Michael’s credibility suffered a lot.
Additionally, I don’t like evil overlords. A book does not require a major nemesis. It’s just very tiring to have mentally deranged monsters that are at once completely evil but also manage to fool every single person in the story. Yawn. This made the end of the book really ridiculous.
And the sexual content was very off-putting. It did not belong. The earlier insecurity of the bride, the doubts, the tension, the suspicion - this was all fantastic. But none of it made any sense as soon as this rather over-powering sexual attraction was added. Very contradictory and absolutely not needed in any regency romance.
