Reseña del editor
Had Theo Moreland, the Marquess of Raine, killed her brother? And had the treasure the two men sought in South America hastened his descent to an early grave? American journalist Megan Mulcahey had to know. But to find out, she needed to infiltrate the marquess's household.
The new American governess intrigued Theo. Wanderlust had always plagued him–until Miss Mulcahey came to Broughton House to teach his young siblings. Now the strange pull of their immediate desire both troubled and excited him. He had seen her beauty once before, in a fever dream his memory could not escape. So why was this delicious vision now snooping around his mansion like a common thief?

**Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book.**
Megan has hated a man for ten years. One that she's never even met. He's the one who killed her brother and got away with it. The time has come for her to travel to England and bring this lord to justice. When the opportunity to get close to the murderer presents itself, she jumps to impersonate a children's tutor and get inside the home. She just doesn't expect to be so enamored by the man who is supposed to be a cold killer.
Theo is stunned to meet Megan because he realizes he's seen her before. Her face has haunted him for ten years, after the vision of her brought him back from the brink of death. And though he's sure she is hiding something from him and his family, he can't help but be drawn to the mysterious woman. But even if he could convince Megan to trust him, there is a larger conspiracy going on that will take them both by storm.
I was excited to read Theo's story because he's been a bit of a mystery to me in the first few books of the series. He's the heir to the dukedom, yet he hasn't been around much so we don't really know him very well. And when I read the blurb for this book, I was immediately intrigued. A woman falling for her mortal enemy? Sounds like an enemies-to-lovers theme which I absolutely love. I was all in and ready to go.
And this book hit a lot of good spots for me. Theo was a charming hero with a mischievous side that made me smile. Even when he suspected something was amiss, he was just so smooth about it. I liked that about him. And Megan was heroine with a habit of getting caught in awkward situations. I swear I was laughing for the entire scene when they toured the duke's collection. Even when the pair were at odds, they had such a playful relationship.
I only wish that we had gotten to see things from Theo's perspective a bit more. This is a complaint I have about most of these books. We start off with seeing the story from both main characters' POVs and then it seems to shift so that we only really get the woman's side of things. I wanted to know what was going on in Theo's head as the story progressed. We got snippets of his thoughts but nowhere near as much as we saw from Megan.
And my other complaint is the repetition. And I actually mean from book to book. During the naughty scenes, the heroes always say the same thing and the bedroom scenes tend to happen in the same way. If you're reading the books as they come out, with some time in between each one, you may not notice this. But I'm reading the series one right after another so I've noticed the similarities. I hope the author will put more variety in the story in future books so it's less predictable.
I'm excited to jump into Alex's story and see what trouble he gets into. 4.5 suns!
Full review on Up 'Til Dawn Book Blog
Shades of Lost Horizons! This is a complicated but interesting plot. Theo definitely has his work cut out to prove his innocence but that gets glossed over when she easily believes him first time he explains. This is after 10 years of hating him. Unquestionably proof then appears. Would have liked to see more actual struggle with this. The struggle is mostly internal with the heroine who is quite capable of story writing in her head without the use of facts. I would have liked more interchange with Theo. Yes there was Theo, but he didn't have a clue what was going on. Still deserves a 5 star. Great series. Reading in order isn't crucial.
