Once upon a time there was a very bad boy…
Ethan Jagger will do anything to leave his criminal past behind and take his place as a gentleman in Polite Society. Success is within his grasp until his boss discovers his double cross and frames him for murder. As if running from the law and the outlaws weren’t bad enough, he must protect an innocent young lady from the very criminals who want him dead. Worst of all, though, is the dangerous attraction that sparks between them. If he can escape the hangman’s noose and start anew, will she consent to love a scoundrel ever after?
Who met a very nice girl…
London only thinks of Audrey Cheswick as a wallflower—if they even think of her at all. She’s tried to find satisfaction—if not happiness—as a spinster-in-waiting, though her intrepid spirit yearns for a grand adventure. But when she runs away with England’s most wanted criminal, she learns adventure comes with a price—not just her reputation or her virtue, but her heart.
Ethan is my favorite character. I think having him in three books really made him fascinating because he changed a little in every book. I had a clear picture of him in my mind with everything he did. I loved how he didn’t really know why he was so willing to take Audrey with him and protect her no matter what. He slowly began to trust people as time went on and when you find out all the people he has affected in a good way and that he didn’t realize people cared about him, your heart pulls for him.
Audrey is a mystery herself. Just when you think you know everything about her, something shocking comes to light. I couldn’t figure out why she was dressed like she was when they first left London and loved when it was told why. I loved that she saw him for his true self and they were the perfect match for each other. And you have to love a girl that can shoot.
I was glad to see the characters from all the books. I loved that they can together to help him and forgive him for the past. I even liked Jason in this book because he realized that Ethan had a much harder life than he did. The ending was perfect, but I didn’t want it to end.
