The final book in the series about the de Monteforte brothers.

We open with Lucien facing Eva down the barrel of a gun in his chambers. He has really met his match. Eva is intelligent, beautiful and dangerous. Could there be a more perfect woman for Lucien, Duke of Blackheath? Their entanglements are over possession Andrew's aphrodisiac and are delicious to read. Eva fascinates Lucien because she is dangerous and can get the better of him. She doesn't need him for anything and challenges him at every turn. (If it were in a modern day setting you would be picturing Bond and a very sexy, deadly, enemy agent.)

However (unlike Bond), the book and the characters must progress.

Lucien's latest attempt at manipulating has backfired. Sending his sister's beau to Spain to miss her has resulted in the ship he was on being attacked and it is unknown if he is alive or dead. Worse, his sister has discovered that it was his manipulating that created this situation. His family gathers to deal with him and they do.

Lucien finds himself married to a very reluctant Eva. Their relationship, always challenging becomes more and less. The two each have to trust before they can gain ground, something neither is wanting or willing to do.

This is a wonderful book. The dynamic between the leads is beautifully written. Their relationship, given it's context, is realistic and the twists and turns it takes equally so. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

As the finale in the series, this book doesn't disappoint.
