Goodreads Summary

Lady Cora Winfield's life has always gone according to plan--her mother's plan. That's why Cora is so fascinated when she meets the dark Duke of Blackdell. Knowing his dangerous reputation, Cora's mother flatly forbids the match, and the duke decides to take matters into his own hands. Kidnapped and facing a scandal, Lady Cora must now decide whether love will be her downfall or the beginning of a new plan, one she never dreamed possible.

Set in the stormy summer of 1816, this Regency romance is a retelling of the myth of Hades and Persephone.

My Review

I really enjoyed this book. This regency themed book was different than the norm. I instantly loved Cora. I appreciated her knowledge and passion about plants and how that passion was pivotal in some of her decisions about her future. I also loved Adam. He was a wonderful, brooding mystery. I thought it was very well planned of the author to have Cora and Adam acquainted before the abduction (don’t worry, it’s on the back cover:). I kept thinking to myself, how is this going to work out and end up? Good thing I already liked Adam. I enjoyed how Adam and Cora’s relationship developed. Malcolm and Kate were also delights. At times I thought there were too many POV changes. Some were necessary, but some were not. And Cora’s mother was too much at times, but I was very happy with the ending and resolution with the characters.

4 out of 5 stars. I look forward to reading more books from this author!
