His greatest battle is just beginning . . .
Captain Harry Lidge has done his duty. After losing too many good men on the battlefield, he's ready to put his responsibilities behind him and live a life free of care. But first he has one last mission: find out what the most outrageous woman in London, the same woman who betrayed him nearly a decade earlier, is concealing, before her secrets take down the crown.
Her heart is the only thing she won't risk . . .
Surrounded by ardent admirers and a few loyal friends, Lady Kate Seaton glides through the ton on a confection of couture gowns and bon mots. No one suspects that beneath her lighthearted façade Kate hides a sorrow so scandalous she'll do anything to keep it hidden. But only when she trusts Harry with the truth and only when he trusts her with his heart can they stop the villains all too willing to kill Kate to attain their ultimate goal: destroy England
This is the third book in the Drakes Rakes series and I loved it!!
I love learning about the key players in this series. They grow on you, and you can't help but feel that they are real and you are there with them.
In the first book, you learn about Jack and Olivia. The second is Diccan and Grace, and now we are on to Harry and Kate.
Harry and Kate have a past that no one seems to know about. All they know is that they loath each other, and some how Kate ended both of Harry's engagements!!
When Kate is accused of being a Lion, Harry is called in to get some information from Kate. At first they are both nothing but mean to each other, but soon some parts of their past come back in a new light, and their opinions of each other change.
There are many horrible problems that arise and some very scary histories that come about, but Harry and Kate fight through them.
I absolutely loved this story of re kindled love, and I think you will too!!
I am honored to be able to give three of you the chance to read this thanks to Hachette Book Group!!
