It's a mad, ill-advised journey that leads the usually sensible Lady Caroline Blacknall to the legendary isle of Muirin Inish, off the windswept coast of Ireland. Even so, she doesn't expect to find herself shipwrecked and then rescued by a man she believed she would never see again. A man who, long ago, held her life in his hands . . . and with it, her heart.Reformed rake Sir Grant Dunmore knew he could never forget the beautiful woman he once endangered nor will he ever forgive himself. But history seems doomed to repeat itself, for as long as Caroline stays on the island, she is trapped in a secret plot that could forever free Ireland-or turn deadly for all. And yet, now that she is in his arms again, how can he dream of ever letting her go?
Lady Caroline Blacknall is on a mission. She desires to read a rare book, a book that Sir Grant Dunmore may have. The question is how will she convince him to give the book to her? Sir Grant Dunmore is actually more complex than many love interests in romance novels. He has been burned once, but that one event left him reevaluating his life decisions and what he truly wants from his life. He needs to decide what he is going to strive for, what new goal he will set. Lady Caroline could provide that challenge for him.
Overall, the characters were fun to get to know. Caroline could have been a bit more determined since so much is put into her attempt to find the book. It seems like she could have pushed a little harder. Her character was inquisitive, pushy at times, and candid. Grant’s character was perfect for this novel. He could be a tad implacable, but he did have to give in to Caroline every once and a while. He does seem to have natural charisma when he decides to speak. He isn’t a huge talker though, so when he decides to talk, the reader listens. The secondary characters in this novel served to move along the plot at a quick pace.
The events in this novel were fast-paced; the reader is not left bored or daydreaming while reading the book. The ending was perfect for this book, this reader wouldn’t change a thing. This novel is perfect for adult readers.
