"Lady Isabella Winton  waited four years to marry her fiancé, but each year Lord Alexander Fitzroy, Earl of Standford, a serving officer and  reformed rake, finds an excuse to delay the nuptials. This time, with the marriage set for the next month, he tells her he received an urgent message from his Colonel. He is needed in Belgium almost immediately. He warns her it may be dangerous for her to accompany him.

Isabella realizes he is bluffing, things would not change so suddenly. Brussels is the centre of a social whirl with riding, the theatre, and lavish balls. Fearing Alex may have returned to his rakish ways and already installed a mistress, she insists on travelling with him. Will he agree?

Isabella is unaware Lord Everard Ladness, heir to a dukedom, is obsessed with her and will go to any lengths to possess her."

While not my favorite book that I've read so far this year, it was still one that kept me engaged right up until the end. My problems with it? Well, the main character had me frowning more than once as I read. She was very much "it's my way, or nothing" and at times acted out in a violent manner, which I found disconcerting. That being said, there is something to be said for feisty women and later in the book, you see right where Isabella gets it from! The story is engaging, the characters are interesting and overall, I'd say it's a good read. Just watch out for the few editing errors that drift in and out. :)
