Lady Lavinia Vaile is in the middle of one of her private gambling parties when her former beau informs her that her husband has been shot dead. Living estranged from her husband and having once threatened to kill him in the manner that he was killed, she soon becomes a suspect.
Maximilian Harrison will do anything he can for Lavinia because of the love they once shared. Risking his reputation to protect her, he sets out to clear her name. Being a former judge in India's high court, Max's word carries a lot of weight with the local authorities, but when someone is out to bring Lavinia down that might not be enough.
This appears to be LaCapra's first book and what a way to come flying out the door!! If this book is any indication of what is to come from this writer, she will be on my must buy list!
I loved Max!! He was do dedicated to Lavinia even though she had broken his heart. Having taken care of her family without her knowledge and he didn't want her to know. He just wanted them to be taken care of.
Lavinia had been hurt in her marriage and didn't want to get hurt again. As much as she stilled loved Max, she was afraid of what giving in to him would mean. I liked watching her learn to trust again and with such a great guy!
I also fell in love with the other Furies and can't wait to read their stories!!
