Summary from Goodreads:

A swashbuckling, second chance Regency romance, inspired by the author's love of Georgette Heyer romances, and of Henry Fielding's eighteenth century novel Tom Jones.

She couldn’t forget…

Wealthy squire’s daughter Margaret Honeywell was always meant to marry her neighbor, Frederick Burton-Smythe, but it’s bastard-born Nicholas Seaton who has her heart. Raised alongside her on her father’s estate, Nick is the rumored son of notorious highwayman Gentleman Jim. When Fred frames him for theft, Nick escapes into the night, vowing to find his legendary sire. But Nick never returns. A decade later, he’s long been presumed dead.

He wouldn’t forgive…

After years spent on the continent, John Beresford, Viscount St. Clare has finally come home to England. Tall, blond, and dangerous, he’s on a mission to restore his family’s honor. If he can mete out a bit of revenge along the way, so much the better. But he hasn’t reckoned for Maggie Honeywell. She’s bold and beautiful—and entirely convinced he’s someone else.

As danger closes in, St. Clare is torn between love and vengeance. Will he sacrifice one to gain the other? Or with a little luck—and a lot of daring—will he find a way to have them both?

This is my first experience with this author, but dang, girl! Way to blow me away. I really enjoyed this story line. It was exciting and cringe worthy. I love a plot where the main character seems to be lost to the wolves, but in the end it all blows up and is thrown in the wolves faces. It really was a "take that," kind of moment and I just wanted to scream and punch them in the throats...

I can't wait to pick up another book by Mini Matthews.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
