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.
I gave this story 2/5 stars on goodreads. While the character Fox was enticing and Miranda was intriguing, the story just wasn’t as good as I kept anticipating. I continued reading in hopes that it would get better, but it didn’t unfortunately. The plot was interesting and more original than many of the historical romances I’ve read, but just something about the atmosphere of the book didn’t click. My feelings regarding this novel are not consistent with many of the reviews on Goodreads.com. So I would still recommend this to anyone who enjoys historical romances.
