About the Book:
“Don’t look at him, dear. He’s dangerous.”
Isabella Bankmill seeks a husband whose character matches her list of requirements. The man must share her faith, but he must also possess a certain je ne sais quoi. The enigmatical Lord Gregory Gordon Bromby—London’s newest literary sensation—certainly possesses the latter. Despite a deformed foot and alarming views on politics and religion, he attracts the ladies in droves.
Haunted by his past and overwhelmed by his newfound celebrity status, Lord Bromby’s obsession with his own doom leads to reckless behavior. When he is stalked by an obsessive aristocrat seeking an elopement, Bromby’s friends urge him to marry a suitable lady as soon as possible. Intrigued by Isabella’s convictions and hoping to avoid further scandal, Bromby proposes to Isabella.
Isabella also receives an offer of marriage from kind-hearted philanthropist, David Beringer—a man equally devoted to his faith—but she only has eyes for Lord Bromby. Blinded by his talent and good looks, Isabella convinces herself that he’s not as dangerous as everyone claims. But when Bromby’s world violently collides with hers, Isabella must decide once and for all who is lord of her life. God or Bromby?

My Thoughts and Review:
Lord Bromby was definitely a troubled man. This is a Genre ( Regency) that I don’t read a lot and but it was very interesting and the writer made the story come alive. Set in England in the 1800’s. Isabella falls in love with Lord Bromby who is a poet but was not a Christian like her. I lot of secondary characters I found I really got attached to especially David who was the one that couldn’t find love and then his sister Rebecca that was a good friend of Isabella. I kept wandering how the story was going to end which I do that a lot and was not what I thought it would be. I received an complementary copy of the book to review on my blog, that did not influence me to have an positive review. This is my honest opinion of the book.
