Duke and Jane's love is tested as she struggles to come to terms with what happened to her, but it also shows you what a strong connection Duke and Jane have for each other.
This theme of violence against women is also explored in the third Wallflower book, What a Wallflower Wants, for Prudence's story.
I'm always surprised by how much I enjoy the way Maya Rodale intertwines the modern and historical books in this series, and this book is no exception.
In a short amount of time you find yourself feeling the full gamut of emotions. I cried a lot and for different reasons, and I laughed. By the end I was so happy that I squealed. Yep,this book made me happy-squeal- it doesn't happen often!
Overall, you're missing out if you haven't started this yet. You need to read the previous two installments before reading this one, but it's so worth it. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go and catch up with the historicals!
*I received a review copy from the publisher, via Edelweiss, for my honest opinion. Thank you!
