The Madness of Viscount Atherbourne by Elisa Braden
This is a dramatic, suspenseful, gripping and romantic story. In the beginning, and much of the storyline, Lucien is a vindictive and unfeeling jerk. He's taking his revenge from an innocent woman, a woman who is kind, sweet and caring. The joke is on him though, because he falls madly in love with her as soon as they kiss, which is immediately upon meeting. It's hard to completely hate Lucien, he has some good traits and he falls in love quickly, and is sweet and romantic when he's trying to win her. I had a hard time putting this down, it's completely engrossing. It's a must for your TBR list.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.
