When Devil, the most infamous member of the Cynster family, is caught in a compromising position with plucky governess Honoria Wetherby, he astonishes the entire ton by offering his hand in marriage. No one had dreamed this scandalous rake would so tamely take a bride. As society's mamas swooned at the loss of England's most eligible bachelor, Devil's infamous Cynster cousins began to place wagers on the wedding date.
But Honoria wasn't about to bend to society's demands and marry a man just because they'd been found together unchaperoned. No. She craved adventure. Solving the murder of a young Cynster cousin fit the bill for a while, but once the crime was solved, Honoria was set on seeing the world. But the scalding heat of her unsated desire for Devil soon had Honoria craving a very different sort of excitement. Could her passion for Devil cause her to embrace the enchanting peril of a lifelong adventure of the heart?
My Rating: 5 out of 5
I picked up this book, the beginning in the Cynster series, because Stephanie Laurens had the newest in the series just release. I hate picking up a book that's part of a series with out reading said series. SO I picked this up to start my journey through the Cynster family. I absolutely LOVED meeting Sylvester "Devil" Cynster and the rest of his family. I enjoyed the nicknames all the men have and I can't wait to find out how they each got them. Devil happens upon a woman, Honoria, trying to save his cousins life after he was shot. The story is about Devil and the rest of the Bar Cynster's solving the mystery of who and why Tolly was murdered as well as Devil and Honoria's path down love and all the heat and passion it can give them.
LOVE IT. I can not wait to get my hands on the next in the series!
