She was his savior
Banished from London for her reckless behavior, Lady Miranda Sinclair is robbed by a dashing highwayman en route to the country. By offering him a kiss in lieu of the jewels she had to leave behind, she commits the very type of act that caused her exile. When her dour guardians extend her punishment to performing charitable work at the local orphanage, she’s further tempted by the home’s owner, a provincial gentleman who stirs her passion in a most wicked way.
He was her downfall
Desperate to save his orphanage from financial catastrophe, Montgomery "Fox" Foxcroft leads a double life as a highwayman. The arrival of wealthy, well-connected Miranda, whose kiss he can’t forget, presents a lawful opportunity to increase his coffers. His problems seem solved—until she rejects his suit. Out of options and falling for the heiress, Fox must risk what principles he has left and take advantage of her wicked ways—even if it ruins them both.
It was such a pleasant & good read! Highly recommend it
Romance, suspense, and a wickedly good time.
Lady Miranda Sinclair lives to break the rules, Her wicked ways result in her being exiled in the rustic country and a prisoner of her temporary guardians. On the very night she is to begin her exile, their entourage is robbed by a masked highwayman. The price is a kiss.
Montgomery Foxcroft has more responsibility than the funds in his coffers. Barely making ends meet to cover the upkeep of his estate and the orphanage, which is the centuries old legacy of his ancestors, he leads a double life.
I love the characters of Lady Miranda and Fox in this book. Watching Lady Miranda mature, learn the value of hard work, and what it means to put the needs of others before herself was heartwarming. Darcy Burke has created another memorable couple worth championing. I actually read the Regency Treasure Hunters Series first and was delighted to get to read the story of the characters I was introduced to there. There is scandal, romance, and corruption. I'm very much looking forward to reading the next book, His Wicked Heart, featuring Jasper Sinclair.
I am privileged to be a part of Darcy's Dream Team, where I receive ARCs in exchange for honest reviews.
I hated to put this story down. Really good read. Loved Miranda and Fix' characters. A few humorous parts. Loved how her character evolved.
