He’s a roughhewn bastard. She’s a rebellious noblewoman. Their passion bridges the class divide in a scintillating novel of forbidden desire and raw sensuality from the USA Today bestselling author of To Lure a Proper Lady.
Lady Caroline Wilde is expected to ride sidesaddle, but she’s not about to embrace convention. She’s also expected to keep a chaste distance from men like Adrian Crosby, the new estate agent, yet she cannot cease her ogling—which is especially irksome considering their ongoing feud. Adrian insists that the fields must be planted; Caro needs those same fields to train her horses. But whenever she tries to put him in his place, Caro looks into his steely gaze and her words simply … disappear.
A bastard son who grew up on the Wyvern estate, Adrian was lucky enough to receive an education at the behest of the late marchioness. Now that he has set out on his own, Adrian knows better than to fall for Lady Caroline, the Duke of Sherrington’s daughter. Caroline is at once a thorn in his side and an exquisite temptation, especially when she’s playing the feisty daredevil. Adrian would give anything for a chance to tame her—and with Caro in the saddle, he just might get his wish.

Oh do they clash from the start and fight but they also are instantly attracted to each other which adds to the fire. There are shocking twists and some mystery in this book.I loved how much some things surrounded horses and her horse especially. I was not expecting any of the twists when it came to Adrian or the girl that was hired to help. The ending was perfect and left me wanting more.
Caro is defiantly a headstrong woman that knows what she wants and will get it one way or another. She is a lady but doesn’t act like one when it comes to horses or hunts. There were a couple of times where she was so focused on getting what she wanted that she made bad decisions but she bounced back.
Adrian was great at his job and knew his place, but Caro pushed him. I had no idea why he left his last job until it was revealed and was shocked. I loved him from the start and understood why he made the decisions he did. At times he didn’t fully understand Caro, but he never seemed to hold it against her.
I can’t wait for the next one and find out what happens next.
