Scotland, 1800’s: Malcolm MacRoyce takes a bride, who was the enemy and one he didn’t want. He goes off to war and he’s stranded in the desert. He and his fellow soldiers see a well and decide to drink from it. His life was never the same.
Emily Adams is from one of the most scandalized families London has to offer. She has one goal before she dies. But with her family scandal, no man wants anything to do with her. She has bewitching eyes that are rare, but Malcolm would recognize them anywhere.
A chance meeting at a Masquerade Ball gives Emily the chance to fulfill her goal and Malcolm a chance to meet his past love. All the while, someone or something is terrorizing the city of London and Malcolm must stop the killings before it’s too late!
Can Malcolm save the city of London from terror and Emily achieve her goal before it’s too late? While it was an intriguing story and extremely well written, I hoped for a different ending. Not a BETTER ending, but different. The book is close to 300 pages long, but it flows so well that it can easily be read in one sitting! The wisdom of Malcolm and the naivete of Emily was a perfect combination. I look forward to reading more from Ainsley Evans! Click the cover to purchase!
