The Victorian era was full of majestic beauty and scandalous secrets--a time when corsets were the least of a woman's restrictions, and men could kill or be killed in the name of honor...

Lady Margaret Cassidy left a life of nobility behind in Ireland, forsaking her grieving homeland to aid war-ravaged men in England. Still, she never expected a cruel turn of fate to lock her into an unwanted betrothal with one of her English patients--much less one as broken and dangerous as Viscount Powers.

Wrecked by his tragic past, Powers' opiate-addled sanity hangs precariously in the balance, leaving him poised to destroy anyone who dares to utter the names of the wife and child he still so deeply mourns. So when he is forced to marry Margaret in exchange for freedom, he is shocked by the desire to earn her trust, her body, and--most alarming of all--her heart...

Great read. Read it in one go. A vivid description of opium addiction and its fallout for the families and loved ones who suffer alongside them. Also refreshing to see a more honest and brave portrayal of the Irish.
