Daphne Starling is known throughout Society as a kind hearted woman that helps all those new to Society. She also is known for her special projects that help those outside of Society that have had a difficult life. Now she is finding out who truly are her friends when someone takes exception to her when she doesn’t return their feelings. When she first meets the Marquess of Rotherstone she doesn’t know who he is only that he has rescued her from a very difficult situation and that she owes him a debt of gratitude. Now she just has to find out exactly who this intriguing man is.

Max St. Albans, Marquess of Rotherstone, is a member of the infamous Inferno Club. Though all of Society knows that the members of the club are a scandalous bunch of men that pursue all types of debauchery and no proper young lady would have anything to do with any of the members. What Society doesn’t know is that the men of the Inferno Club are really warriors that will go to any lengths to protect king and country. Max has decided it is time to restore the family name and the one sure way to do that is marry a woman that has the breeding and a reputation that is above reproach. What he doesn’t count on is his attraction to Daphne or the fact that has her reputation has been tarnished by a jilted suitor.

Now Max has decided to make Daphne his own and show Society that she isn’t anything at all like what they are saying about her. Max is going to have to walk a fine line to get the woman he loves and still keep his secrets about the Inferno Club. Max just isn’t sure he will be able to keep the two parts of his life separate but if he wants Daphne he is going to have to find a way to do just that. There is trouble coming and only time will tell if he is going to be able to keep Daphne safe and himself a live long enough to have the life he finds he desperately wants now that it is within his grasp.

This story has action and intrigue that will keep the reader riveted to the story until the very last page and eagerly wanting to read the next book in the series just to see what will happen next. This one will draw the reader into it as Max and Daphne work through their misunderstanding with each other to get the love and happiness they both want and know that they will only have with each other. The reader will feel all the things that Max and Daphne go through while they work through all of their problems and deal with the world outside their own little intimate world.

I give this one 4 red roses
