I loved this romance from start to finish, I couldn't put it down. Sebastian Hawkeston, Lord Coldhurst is a rake, he doesn't take mistresses' or have relationships, he likes a free life and doesn't believe in love it just complicates things. But his life has just changed he has just shot and killed someone by accident in a duel and has to flee England. Beatrice Hennessey has lost her brother, he was shot and killed in a duel by Sebastian. Her family have no money and are facing financial ruin, so she has to get married. Sebastian seems the best choice to ask to marry her, he's rich and it is his fault they are on their own and she knew what she wanted and had to do, so went out there and faced it, even if it had to be her brothers murderer. Sebastian turned out to be a wonderful introduction to the marriage bed, but very jealous. There was lots of tender romance, mystery and drama to keep you turning the pages in this great story, I love how the story includes small parts off the previous Disgraced Lords book and this one is a cliffhanger so I'm eagerly awaiting the next The Disgraced Lords exciting story. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

About This Item
In the second novel in USA Today bestselling author Bronwen Evans’s sexy Disgraced Lords series, two very independent souls find themselves fighting to resist a deepening passion.
When Beatrice Hennessey sets out to confront Lord Coldhurst, the notorious rogue who killed her brother in a duel, her intent is to save her family from destitution. She’s determined to blackmail the man into a loveless marriage. She’ll make the wealthy Lord Coldhurst pay for the rest of his life. But while greeting his ship, Beatrice takes a tumble into the Thames—only to be fished out by a pair of strong masculine arms that tempt her to stay locked in their heated embrace forever. That is, until she realizes those arms belong to Sebastian Hawkestone, Lord Coldhurst himself.
The little drowned mermaid has an interesting proposition indeed; one that Sebastian is surprised to find quite agreeable. Although he’s had women more beautiful, she is pleasing to the eye, and besides, it’s time he fathered an heir. Beatrice promises to be the ideal wife; a woman who hates him with an all-consuming passion is far too sensible to expect romance. However, it isn’t long before Sebastian’s plan for a marriage of convenience unravels, and he’s caught up in the exhilarating undertow of seduction.
