Lady Delphine St. James wants Major Lord Stephen Ives. He is everything she wants. There have been many suitors before but she turned them all down. Her mind is filled with Major/Lord Ives. She’s fallen for him, but he sees nothing in her. But a kiss between them leaves them both wanting more.
When Stephen is wounded and becomes blind in the battle, Delphine is adamant to care for him even though he is hard to deal with. Truthfully, I don’t think I could stay by someone’s side if they would do anything to get rid of me. No matter how much I loved them, if they constantly trying to get rid of me I might not stay beside them. I really admire Delphine’s effort. She takes care of him and does everything she can for him. It’s admirable. Her love for him is bigger than anything, but of course Stephen is so afraid of loving her. He comes up with reasons and excuses to drive her away. He is so stubborn.
Of course Delphine doesn’t care about things like status, wealth, or money. All she wants is him. I’m glad she sticks by his side and helps him sincerely.
What an exciting and incredible read. I will always be weak to the historical and romance genre. I couldn’t resist picking up this book when I saw it up for review. It was an amazing read. It didn’t disappointed at all. This book had it all. It had an amazing storyline, amazing characters, and an amazing ending. I could never turn away from a book with such a happy ending. I’m looking forward to reading more books by this author.
