Hell hath no fury . . .

Damian, Earl of Windermere, rues the day he drunkenly gambled away his family's estate and was forced into marriage to reclaim it. Now, after hiding out from his new bride for a year, Damian is finally called home, only to discover that his modest bride has become an alluring beauty—and rumor has it that she's taken a lover. Damian vows to keep his wife from straying again, but to do so he must seduce her—and protect his heart from falling for the wife he never knew he wanted.

Lady Cynthia never aspired to be the subject of scandal.

Lady Cynthia never aspired to be the subject of scandal. But with her husband off gallivanting across Persia, what was a lady to do? Flirting shamelessly with his former best friend seemed like the perfect revenge . . . except no matter how little Damian deserves her loyalty, Cynthia can't bring herself to be unfaithful. But now that the scoundrel has returned home, Cynthia isn't about to forgive his absence so easily—even if his presence stirs something in her she'd long thought dead and buried. He might win her heart . . . if he can earn her forgiveness!

Good story but ending lacking
April 11th, 2015
This book is the third book in a four-book series and it feels that way. The story is captivating to a certain point, but the ending is rushed and leaves a number of threads loose, much more so than the first two novels did. These plot threads deal with the HEA couple and several of them feel like they should have been tied off in this novel rather than left to continue to the next one. Things I liked: the flashback structure, giving us more history of the various characters in the book (with appearances from characters we've grown to know over the first two books). I would have liked a few more, actually, to give us some more depth. I also liked the heroine, Cynthia, a lot; we saw how she grew and struggled as a character. I was less enamored with Damian, the hero. He also grows and changes over the novel but I think I needed one more scene at the end regarding his inner growth to decide that he was worthy of Cynthia. There is a specific issue important to Cynthia on which he changes his mind, but we never see the thought process that leads to him changing his mind - it's just two sentences shoved into the penultimate chapter. The biggest challenge I had with this was that there were two main plotlines in addition to the romance. One dealt with paintings, the other dealt with a social project Cynthia was working on. One felt like an A plot - it affected every element of the story - and the other felt very much like a B plot in that it just came in a few times. But the ending revolved around the B plot and left the A plot with no conclusion. The mystery of the A plot was not resolved but felt abruptly dropped; the main characters suddenly lost interest once they'd declared their love for each other. Had there been just another couple of paragraphs in which the characters had commented on the mystery and noted they were going to dig into it more in the future, I would have appreciated the book more.
