Summary

In this stunning series starter by USA Today best-selling author May McGoldrick, meet the new generation of Penningtons...five brothers and sisters of passion and privilege. Enter their aristocratic world…where each will fight injustice and find love.  

Hugh Pennington - Viscount Greysteil, Lord Justice of the Scottish Courts, hero of the Napoleonic wars - is a grieving widower with a death wish. When he receives an expected crate from the continent, he is shocked to find a nearly dead woman inside. Her identity is unknown, and the handful of American coins and the precious diamond sown into her dress only deepen the mystery. 

Grace Ware is an enemy to the English crown. Her father, an Irish military commander of Napoleon’s defeated army. Her mother, an exiled Scottish Jacobite. When Grace took shelter in a warehouse, running from her father’s murderers through the harbor alleyways of Antwerp, she never anticipated bad luck to deposit her at the home of an aristocrat in the Scottish Borders. Baronsford is the last place she could expect to find safety, and Grace feigns a loss of memory to buy herself time while she recovers. 

Hugh is taken by her beauty, passion, and courage to challenge his beliefs and open his mind. Grace finds in him a wounded man of honor, proud but compassionate. When their duel of wits quickly turns to passion and romance, Grace’s fears begin to dissolve...until danger follows her to the very doors of Baronsford. For, unknown to either of them, Grace has in her possession a secret that will wreak havoc within the British government. Friend and foe are indistinguishable as lethal forces converge to tear the two lovers apart or destroy them both.

Not a repeat listen for me

This is a new author and a new narrator for me. I think the story was good. At times, though, it seemed like multiple stories that didn't quite fit together. And it was definitely too long. Because I was busy and moving, I listened as I worked. If not, I would have given up at chapter 5.

I grabbed me from the start

It has been a long time since I picked up a regency romance novel. This one reminds me why I used to enjoy them.

The book grabbed me in the first five minutes and kept me interested all along. It even had me out walking more than usual just so I could continue to listen.

I listen to this book via Audible and actually picked the title, not knowing anything about the author, because of the narrator. Saskia Maarleveld is my favorite. And now, because of her, I have a new author/series to continue reading. A very enjoyable story.

Excellent Read

This story has all the elements needed for a great novel: suspense, love, historical background, adventure, flow and size. Can’t wait to read the rest of the series. Thank you for creating this series that allows a person to take a break from everyday life chores and step into a positive and exciting world.

Easy listen!

Predictable, but a nice escape! Liked it well enough to get book 2. Always enjoy Saskia's narration. Voice is very soothing.
