Victor Cale never imagined that his sweet, shy bride, Isabella, would use her talents for creating exquisite imitation jewels criminally. But there's no denying that her handiwork was used in the theft of the Dutch royal diamonds-- right after Isa disappeared into the night.
Ten years later, Victor is sent to Edinburgh to investigate a wealthy baron's mysterious bride-to-be... who turns out to be Isa, masquerading as an alluring widow. No longer the meek girl he once knew, Isa boldly asserts that it was Victor who abandoned her, after he helped steal the royal diamonds!
Piecing together the truth of the past reawakens their volatile passions, which burns hotter than ever. But with a decade of secrets between them, Victor and Isa must trust each other to bring the real thieves to justice-- without getting burned themselves.
This is the first book that I have ready by author Sabrina Jeffries & I definitely enjoyed it! I love historical fiction romances & this one was filled with romance, drama, & excitement! Seeing Victor & Isa fight their attraction for each other, along with their attempts to figure out what really happened 10 years ago, really helps the reader to fall in love with this story.
From the very first page I found myself really hoping that Victor & Isa would be able to reunite. It annoyed me that Victor was so determined to think the worst of Isa, even as they got to know each other again & of course Isa still didn't trust him, even after they spent the night together. In the end it is another theft that truly brings them together, which I thought was absolutely perfect!
