When Lady Scarlett Sherwood’s husband is killed in a riding accident that turns out to be no accident at all, she becomes the number one suspect in a murder investigation that takes the ton by storm. Her accuser? None other than the dark, ruthless Sir Owen Steel, Captain of the Bow Street Runners… and the only man Scarlett has ever loved.
Owen was just the poor son of a baker when Scarlett spurned him for a highborn lord. Now he is one of the most powerful men in England, but he never forgot the woman who left him humiliated and heartbroken. He always vowed he would make Scarlett pay for her treacherous betrayal, and what better way to seek revenge than to see her imprisoned for murder?
A DANGEROUS SEDUCTION…
But old passions are hard to ignore, and one kiss is all it takes for Owen and Scarlett’s sizzling chemistry to be reignited. Soon they find themselves swept up in an affair that could have dangerous consequences for them both. Because there is still a murderer on the loose, and he’s just found his next victim…
This was my first Jillian Eaton book, and I think it was a great read. I felt like I was in the story with the characters and I enjoyed every page of it.
This story follows Scarlett who is in an unhappy marriage. She regrets her decision that she made seven years ago to choose between a man she loved and a man who was rich. She hasn’t seen Owen since that day. Now all of a sudden he’s back in London. Her husband is dead. Owen is investigating his possible murder. And Scarlett is a suspect.
The synopsis alone with enough to peak my interest, but as soon as I started reading I was hooked. This is one of those historical romances that has a little bit of suspense woven in. There were so many questions that I thought I had answers to, and then the author would throw a loop in the story and it would open up more questions for me. The chemistry she wrote between Owen and Scarlett was so strong. This is their second chance at love, but understandably oh and is not as eager to take that chance at Scarlett. She broke his heart seven years ago so he’s not wanting to get it broken again. The pacing of the book was great; I think I read the entire thing in one day because I just didn’t want to put it down. If you are a fan of historical romances then you need to check out this book.
