My Review
Lady Xenobia India is different from other ladies. She works hard and has put aside wanting a husband until now. She just wants to do one more job before she retires. When she meets Thorn Dautry that all changes. He awakens something in her she hasn't felt before. Thorn is rich and powerful but he is also the bastard son of a duke. He wants to settle down and marry and believes he has found the perfect woman to do that with. He first wants to a house u fit for a lady. Xenobia isn't what he expected and even if he has his eyes set on another lady, Xenobia temps him to maybe rethink who he wants to spend forever with.

I have to say Xenobia is one of the most fascinating historical females I have read about in a long time. I love everything about her from how she loves to work, why she feels the drive to work, how sweet and caring she can be, how passionate and so much more. She was simply wonderful to read about. Thorn may be a bastard but he is a successful one who is always thinking of ways to come up with new stuff. He is very smart, sexy and he has a past that makes you see why he has such a drive. He also can be very naughty and it is thrilling to me to see how far he will go.

Some times you may think you get tired of historical romance and they are all the same. Well I have to say that isn't the case with this book. Yes Xenobia is thinking of marriage but she isn't just sitting around waiting for a husband. She is out working and while it may be a scandal she loves her job. She has been emotional torn since she was a child and it has had it's effect on her in some ways. She wants to be the perfect lady in some ways but never really will. Thorn makes her say and do things she never thought she would. They become friends and that is something that usually doesn't happen in this time period. They tease each other and she really notices her sexuality after meeting him. Thorn may seem rough at times but he one my heart when Rose appears. I knew he was a wonderful guy at that point. Plus he is always trying to think of ways to keep people in jobs. He wants a sweet girl and even Xenobia thinks that is what he needs but I saw right away Xenobia is the perfect one for him. I love what it takes for both of them to see just what they have right in front of them. Thorn tries his best to heal her old wounds. If you love historical romance or have stepped away from it I plead with you to try this one. You will fall in love all over again with this genre.
