Description

The start of a critically acclaimed historical romance series by New York Times bestselling author Courtney Milan...

Hugo Marshall earned the nickname "the Wolf of Clermont" for his ruthless ambition--a characteristic that has served him well, elevating the coal miner's son to the right hand man of a duke. When he's ordered to get rid of a pestering governess by fair means or foul, it's just another day at work.

But after everything Miss Serena Barton has been through at the hands of his employer, she is determined to make him pay. She won't let anyone stop her--not even the man that all of London fears. They might call Hugo Marshall the Wolf of Clermont, but even wolves can be brought to heel...

    This was the first book I read from this author. The characters are so real and have a real depth to them. I cried when they cried and was happy for them when the story had a happy ending.
  • A Winner

    I am a voracious reader and have read dozens and dozens of both free and paid ebooks. So many of them are so bad that I can't even finish them. This book, however, was a very pleasant surprise and I highly recommend it. Although it is a shorter story, the author has done an excellent job. The characters are well developed and show growth, the plot is interesting and the dialogue appropriate and believable. I highly recommend this story. You won't be disappointed.
  • Good read

    I loved this story. Normally I steer clear of the shorter works of free fiction; experience has taught me that if the author couldn't make her material into an actual, full-length story, there isn't enough there to be worth reading. Generally the full-length ones aren't worth reading either, but I've ploughed through a good number of them, hoping for a few crumbs of enjoyment. Voracious readers can't be too picky. I tried this one despite that conviction - and I absolutely loved it. More: I found myself savouring it, automatically turning a page back to reread what I had just read, so that I could enjoy it again before continuing. The main characters and the dialogue are delightful, and the story unfolds at a controlled pace that is completely satisfying. Yay! My only complaint is that it'll be a long, long time before I come across another that I like as well as this one. The bar has been lifted... expectations have been raised... darn it.
