I first started this book on February 6, Miss Juliet Shelby has always made sure to blend into the background in society following an accident that now has her in need of the assistance of a walking cane. I always enjoy when an author takes a character who seems likes the least likely to obtain what others so desperately want, but ends up with that and much much.
Also some parts were a bit boring. So, right there, we have an interesting storyline of two people who have issues from their past who come together and grow stronger as they fall in love. Juliet's fears about his reaction to her injury were very realistic.
Collind isn't a circus, you know. But with one of Juliet's old friends disappearance and the offer of dancing lessons, Alec and Juliet become close and neither can seem to deny their attraction. The truth is her romajce were much more grave, to the point where her leg had to be amputated to save her life. But he too is hiding a shocking secret - and the only way he can defeat the devil in his past is to seduce the angel in his arms When Juliet was fifteen, she was involved in an accident that resulted in a permanent injury to her foot.
This story has the added twist of the heroine not only being a wallflower who was ridiculed by her peers within the ton, but having the worst parents imaginable. Doesn't matter that it's priced the same as a paperback because by the time the paperback arrives, I think I've already wilted from the waiting. Pages with related products.

Juliet can hardly believe the most handsome bachelor in London would notice her, until he takes her in his arms and sets her heart ablaze… Lord Alec Deveril has never felt such a spark of attraction for an unmarried lady before.
