About the Book:
Hadley is determined not to be distracted by Evangeline. He and the other Libertine Scholars are in pursuit of an enemy who has been striking at them from the shadows, and Evangeline’s mere presence could be dangerous. But with one smile, one touch, one taste of Evangeline’s lips, Hadley’s resolve is overpowered by far more pleasant memories. As the two enter into a discreet affair, Hadley vows to give her his body, never his heart. That, she will have to earn.

A Tasty Storyline with a Sour Aftertaste
When De Palma finds that Hadley and Evangeline are back together, working things out, and finally discovering the underhanded events that separated them years before, De Palma’s partner and spy within the Libertine Scholars circle kidnaps Hadley and Evangeline’s son. When they discover that their friend Arend is missing and that De Palma is actually Lady Victoria, the Libertine Scholars jump into action to rescue Arend and Sealey, Hadley and Evangeline’s son.
Once Sealey is rescued, and they capture Lady Victoria, The Libertine Scholars meet to discuss how to rescue Arend who is still in the clutches of Lady Victoria’s partner, their friend Isobel, and will die if Victoria isn’t freed and meets her at a predetermine time and place. The story ends just as they have a plan to rescue Arend and Arend wakes up in a dark coal mine. It ends there. It felt like a child who is just getting to the good part of candy before it falls to the ground, bereft. The story overall is good one. It has second chances, love, and good versus evil. But the end left something to be desired.
