♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ½ The main story starts off in a ballroom, which of course I love, and I haven’t read a “ballroom” historical in a while.. They have all taken place in the country. So because of that it pulled me in right away. The rest of the story was equally as wonderful. I loved all three Pembrook Lords (Sebastian,Tristan and Rafe) and I am already totally looking forward to the other two stories.
Sebastian and Mary, were great together. I love a story that stems from childhood. Sebastian is hard and driven, and Mary is there to bring softness to his life. This doesn’t mean she is a soft character. No, she is bold, and goes after what she wants. She strives to make Sebastian laugh again and I really liked her character. I also enjoyed how ALL the Pembrook brothers care for Mary.
The Narrator Faye Adele did a fantastic job! I would gladly listen to her again.
Three young heirs, imprisoned by an unscrupulous uncle, escaped—to the sea, to the streets, to faraway battle—awaiting the day when they would return to reclaim their birthright.
Sebastian Easton always vowed he would avenge his stolen youth and title. Now back in London, the rightful Duke of Keswick—returning from battle a wounded, hardened, changed man—cannot forget the brave girl who once rescued him and his brothers from certain death.
Lady Mary Wynne-Jones paid dearly for helping the imprisoned young Lords of Pembrook, and she remembers well the promise she made to Sebastian all those years ago: to meet him once more in the abbey ruins where they shared a bold, forbidden kiss. While Mary is betrothed now to another, a friendship forged with dark secrets cannot be ignored. Unexpected passion soon burns dangerously between them, tempting Sebastian to abandon his quest for retribution to fight for a love that could once again set him free.
