I LOVED this story!! Eleanor was a very strong woman. She had to be to go back into society after being ruined all those years ago. I loved that she was offered a second chance at finding love. Fate had getting a job with the right person.
Of course, like other men, Titus was not ready to settle down yet. But there was no denying the attraction that he felt toward Eleanor and when push came to shove, he wasn't about to let anyone else have her!!
I'm excited to read the next book in Burke's Untouchable series, The Duke of Daring, which comes out in August!!
