The second in Laurens’ series within a series is delicious fun. The trilogy fits nicely into the Cynster family tree, even allowing past Cynsters to make appearances while keeping the pace quick and the passion hot. What Laurens does best.

Kidnapped from her sister Heather’s engagement ball, Eliza Cynster flees her captors and lands in the arms of scholarly Jeremy Carling. Jeremy realizes something is wrong when he spies Eliza at a posting stop. He dresses her as a lad and rushes off, keeping one step ahead of the mysterious laird who wants Eliza. With villains on their trail, Jeremy and Eliza form a bond of trust that turns to heated passion. When they are caught on a cliff with nowhere to turn, love and family keep them safe.
