Synopsis:

Ash Turner has waited a lifetime to seek revenge on the man who ruined his family—and now the time for justice has arrived. At Parford Manor, he intends to take his place as the rightful heir to the dukedom and settle an old score with the current duke once and for all. But instead he finds himself drawn to a tempting beauty who has the power to undo all his dreams of vengeance….

Lady Margaret knows she should despise the man who's stolen her fortune and her father's legacy—the man she's been ordered to spy on in the guise of a nurse. Yet the more she learns about the new duke, the less she can resist his smoldering appeal. Soon Margaret and Ash find themselves torn between old loyalties—and the tantalizing promise of passion….

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book!

This is a story of revenge and love.  Ash loves his family above all else, and would do anything for them. Including proving that the Duke of Parford is a bigamist and that his children are illegitimate. He inherits the title.  Definitely makes you think of "payback's a bitch!".. He would do ANYTHING for his family.

Margaret is the youngest of the Duke of Parford's children.  She is left behind by her brothers to look after their father and spy on Ash.  She is told to report anything that could be used against him in the fight for the Parford title. 

I loved the relationship between Ash and Margaret.  As the daughter of his enemy, Margaret really should hate Ash.  He makes a point of making her feel needed and important, unlike her father.  Little does her family know, she grows to respects Ash and eventually falls in love with him.

The characters in the story were engaging.  I loved the banter between Ash and his brother, as well as between him and Margaret.   The story pulled me in right from the first chapter, and I couldn't put it down.  I will definitely be picking up more of Ms. Milan's books!!
