Marcus, Viscount Wessex, has determined that when he marries it will be a typical ton marriage – business transaction only. Love, an emotion he buried long ago, only breaks the heart. A lesson he learned long ago at the hands of a lying miss. Which makes his sister’s friend, who is the antithesis of the girl who broke his heart, an excellent choice WHEN he decides to marry.
Mrs. Eleanor Collins swore she would never return to London – the place of her great love & her greatest fear. When circumstances beyond her control force her & her daughter to return she tries to convince herself she will never run into the love of her life – the man she still loves. Alas, fate has different plans.
A chance meeting shows Marcus he still holds onto his anger but there are deeper feelings still there. It shows Eleanor the extent of hurt her lying to him then fleeing all those years ago. As they spend more & more time together will they be unable to deny the love that is still between them? Will outside forces conspire to tear them apart? As events transpire that hint there was more to Eleanor’s defection will Marcus pay attention & will she have the courage to trust him with the details of that fateful night? When Eleanor’s greatest fear comes to pass will she run again or will Marcus be able to convince her to stay?
A superb piece of writing by the extremely talented Christi Caldwell. Her stories engage a range of emotions & pull you into the story. To Trust a Rogue is no exception! Anger, fear, shame, matchmaking, evil, distrust & best of all love abound in this latest installment of The Heart of the Duke series. Ms. Caldwell proves once again why she’s one of my favorite authors & I am looking forward to her next novel.
