As a young man, Jason Sinclair…

His lover and half-brother set him up for his father's murder. This leaves Avery, his half-brother, the new Duke of Carlyle. Jason was sentenced to hanging, but (long story which will be dealt with later in the book) he was instead transported to the "colonies." Where bad things happened.

He returns to England a changed man.

Velvet Moran and her grandfather are desperate—her father gambled away the family fortune. They've sold off everything but the furniture in the...more
Es el segundo libro de esta autora que leo y no consigo entender porqué las críticas son tan buenas, es un libro por debajo del montón. Jason el protagonista es demasiado histérico, que si la quiere, pero que no la quiere, que la quiere en la cama, que no que no porque es una dama.
okay. this book had way too much going on.

Jason es acusado falsamente del asesinato de su padre y sentenciado a muerte... pero los planes no le salen nada bien a Avery y Jason es enviado a Georgia como esclavo donde pasa ocho años hasta que él pueda escapar y volver para recuperar lo que le pert...more
Read this way back. I will have to refresh my memory more before I rate it.

To save her family from ruin, Velvet Moran agrees to wed the arrogant Duke of Carlyle but finds herself the captive of notorious highwayman Jason Sinclair, falsely accused of murder and on a mission to recover his stolen dukedom.
Tiene buenos momentos esta pareja pero se vuelve demasiado predecible el libro ya cuando va por el 10% del mismo, se puede deducir finalmente como van a ir cayendo las piezas de este rompecabezas y todo pasa muy lentamente para lo obvio que es.
Another "goodie" by Ms. Martin. I've actually been wanting to read this one for quite sometime but wasn't able to get my hands on it. It was definitely worth the wait. I also recommend reading Lucien's story "Silk and Steel".
was okay. some weak plot points. nothing interesting done with names and maybe a few other unturned corners. cliche issues for the man who thinks he's done a horrible thing that turns out to be more in line of heroic.
A lot of things are happening all at once in this book. The kidnapping, the love story, the murders, a secondary pairing, a bit of a flashback once or twice. Just keep your eye on the price and you'll be fine ;)
So happy the cover wasn't a bodice ripper. Good story-a bit complicated and not fully tied together for the reader.
This is one of the books that got me hooked into reading English ones. xx So love Jason Sinclair. xx
needed a mindless reread. one of my favorite historical romances from back in the day.
