My Lord, My Rogue by Anna St Claire:Anna St Claire, sucked me straight in with her well written, fascinating tale, rife with emotion, intriguing characters, harrowing circumstances and mystery. Where romance, conspiracy, redemption and espionage collide as Benjamin seeks to woo the heart of the one he thought forever lost.Honora having paid greatly for one naive and misguided plan, finds herself not only hurtfully jilting her childhood friend, whilst being infatuated with another, but left drowning in the deep water of an abusive marriage and desperately grasping for escape. Three years later, having faked her own death, her past rides to meet her forcing her to expose the secrets that have so long festered. But can love break through a wall of selfdoubt and caution to find the vibrant confidence and spark she once had? It took one: fast paced, fun, heartwarmingly romantic and achingly fraught array of twists and turns - with a good overshadowing of espionage induced peril - to make this an adventure that kept me hooked until the end. Such a beautiful tale about the power of forgiveness and second chances!
