At first, it took me a bit to get into the story but once I did I didn't want to put it down.
Story is a little dark and gothic at times, but adds flavor to the mundane historical romance novels. I liked the change from normal historical romance reads to this.
Yvette was very young and in love with Beau and then thought she lost him. She remarried and built her family. After several years and slave revolution she goes to England to get help from Beau's family.
Beau returns and you can see the chemistry between them is still there but so is 8/9 years of separation and hatred. It takes alot to work through the issues that each have or thought was there.
I enjoyed the romance, the gothic parts and the action in the story.
