Merrick Welbourne never anticipated discovering a long-lost twin—particularly one who’d rob him and leave him for dead on the road. Now living his brother’s aristocratic life, he has new trials, tribulations… and temptations, not the least being Chloe Simon, a woman of rare mettle, proud heart, and unprecedented beauty. But she’s no easy mark for a perceived highwayman.
Chloe Simon knew Lord Lindale was definitely not himself. After encountering the masked highwayman Hawk left for dead, he seemed… somehow different. Maybe more approachable? Infinitely more… desirable. Entirely too irresistible. In a stolen moment of startling intimacy, he makes her feel like titled nobility. But she was only ever a doctor’s daughter, with every reason to steer clear of his very kissable lips.
Uncaged Review: This is the first book I’ve read
from this author (how is that possible?) and I’m sure
it won’t be the last. This is a charming story that reminded
me a bit of the Man in the Iron Mask, where
twin brothers are separated as infants, not for the
same reasons, but each not knowing that they have a
brother. The opening scene will give you a good look
into how Fiona had to choose, but not the why. In the
next chapter, the boys are now men and it goes from
there. This is the story of one of the twins, Merrick.
Ian’s book is the second in the series.
There is a danger, romance, and some heartwarming
moments and there is a few heated sex scenes. But
this is story of love and forgiveness and truly finding
out who your true self is. Nicely written and looking
forward to more by this author. Reviewed by Cyrene
