    Mr George Gardiner has recently acquired an estate it includes a hermitage The hermitage is without an occupant until Robbie Darkwood arrives takes up residence George is intrigued as Robbie seems a gentleman his hands haven t seen hard work.When an unspeakable secret is uncovered, threatening to destroy the Earl of Westbridge s tranquil life, he seeks refuge while he plots an honorable course of action, as an hermit Laurel Gardiner, Mr Gardiner s spirited daughter, returns from the London season bored and disillusioned, wanting nothing than the sanctuary of her secret library in her father s hermitage Where she finds her sacred space occupied by a handsome and enigmatic hermit.The Earl of Westbridge does his best to avoid Miss Gardiner, but she s a force to be reckoned with, and soon he finds himself falling in love with her But he knows that his love is ill fated, for no respectable woman will have him once this unspeakable secret is revealed.A fairly good read, the characters were well portrayed quite likeable but didn t seem to embrace the era The plot was well paced but I just didn t engage with it I found my attention wondering quite often I found it hard to come to terms with an Earl becoming a hermit living off the land, I d have thought he d have gone abroad to come to terms with the secret My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read

    This book was nice to read even though it was a bit too forseeable and I had no problem to put it aside every now and then I understood that the Earl of Westbridge was distressed and even horrified when he discovered the truth, this one secret that is just too horrible to even think of it But, well, a hermit Seriously Some coincidences are really astonishing like Miss Laurel Gardiner befriending Miss Penelope Croydenand everything that results of it Nevertheless I really liked the characters and I enjoyed to read how every Jack finds his Jill.A nice book, not something that I ll read again that soon, but nice nontheless.

    I guess I have read too many Georgette Heyer historical romance because they have set a pretty high standard This one felt rather tawdry The characters jumped right into sex too explicit for my taste without many quams even though at that time period her reputation would have been ruined and if he had been any kind of gentleman he would have thought a bit before defiling her They were in love before they even really knew much about the other So this was really all about lust and not love.The story was pretty predictable and I guessed his secret before getting very far into the story If you want real historical romance this one isn t a great choice If all you want is a cheep, lustful, quick easy read then go ahead.I recieved this book via Netgalley in exchange for a review
