In Regency England, a beautiful young woman finds her life thrown into turmoil by the arrival of a handsome scoundrel. Lady Elizabeth, the youngest and most headstrong of the three Banning sisters, has been engaged three times, and has most scandalously broken off all three engagements. Her fear of becoming any mans property has kept her from marriage and earned her a reputation in the <I>ton </I>as a heartbreaking flirt. <P>Neil Severin is a wicked rogue, black of heart and black of reputation. A man of no morals, devoid of compassion, he is a governmentsanctioned assassin. And his newest target is a man Beth holds dear. When the flame-haired beauty thwarts his plan, Neil exacts his own brand of spicy revenge. <P>Beth despises him. Neil doesnt care. But circumstances most unexpectedly throw them together, and with Beths life in danger, Neil finds himself in the unexpected role of hero, racing to save her before its too late. <P>What he never expects is the twist fate hands him: instead of his saving her, Beth winds up saving him. When the ruthless organization he works for turns its agents loose on him, only Beth stands between him and a death he thought he didnt fear. <P>In a fight for their lives, Neil and Beth travel the British countryside, fleeing the ruthless killers out for Neils blood, the men after Beth, and their<P>growing attraction to each other. Can Neil forgive himself for his past and accept Beths love? Can Beth overcome her fear and trust Neil? Will she have to choose between him and her family? And most important, can they both survive long enough to begin a new life together? <P>The third in the Banning Sisters trilogy that began with the <I>New York Times </I>bestsellers <I>Scandalous </I>and <I>Irresistible, Shameless </I>marks a dazzling return to historical fiction for Karen Robards.

This book is great! It has lots of usage of english from an old era of time, so you get interesting terms and words that you haven't heard before! The story is pretty good and the characters are badass..

A real page turner. Couldn't wait to find out how it would end.

Didn't finish book. I didn't warm to the plot of an assassin being the hero. Life is too short to read books you don't like.

Great historical romance suspense. Intriguing. Couldn't put it down.
