♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Rafe’s story was a bit more gritty for me than the previous two. He was the most “tortured hero” type of the three brother's in my opinion. It’s not my favourite type of plot, usually because I find there ends up being a fair amount of self pity involved and I get frustrated thinking if you would just try, then you could maybe get over it.. Rafe however, I enjoyed. He seemed more bitter in the previous books, but since he meets Evelyn fairly early on in this one, his bitterness fades. He is an angry fellow, there's no doubt, but I loved how he wanted the best for her and never pushed her or treated her poorly.
Evelyn was a strong leading lady. She was caring and I absolutely loved when she could coax a smile or chuckle from Rafe. This was a good conclusion to a great series. Tristan is still my favourite of the three brothers though.
Narration was done well, I will gladly listen to Faye Adele again. Her voice is a breeze to listen to.
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 . . .

After her father's death, Evelyn Chambers never imagined she would be sold to the highest bidder, yet circumstances give her little choice but to accept the lord's indecent proposal. Rafe is wealthy, as well as ruthless. Yet his coldness belies deep passion and deeper secrets. If she must be his, Evelyn intends to lay bare everything the Lord of Pembrook is hiding. But dark discoveries threaten to destroy them both until unexpected love leads the last lost lord home . .
