Can a promise to a dying man and life long hatred for another keep true love apart?
Ms. Sophie Hart is a wonderfully vibrant character that leaps off the page. Her determination was at time frustrating, but her loyal and love for her family was deeply admiring. I adored the way she handled her twin aunts, Mae and June, whom were lovely secondary characters. They brought a lot to the story including humor and aggrivation.
Mr. Matson Brentwood is the epitome of tall, dark and handsome. I instantly was drawn to him and was empathic to his family drama. When he and his twin, Iverson, return to England after making their fortune, they are faced with scandal. After a chance meeting with the beautiful Sophie, Matson is smitten. Knowing she must marry for a title, and he not wanting to marry at all, we see their struggle to fight their attraction that sizzles the page. A few stolen moments shows them that sometimes there are more important things than pride and honor and that love and conquer all.
This is the sixth and final installment in the Rogue’s Dynasty series by Amelia Grey. I really loved this historical. The couple were well suited, and were surrounded by a cast of characters that helped paint this tale of love and family. I wish we could have seen more of Iverson, but we were able to see the end of his story as well. I had not read the previous books in this series, but I didn’t feel as though I was missing anything as I read. However, I will be going back to the beginning to start the adventure that so many fans have loved.
