Sometimes scandal is worth more than its weight in gold.
Love was folly, in Prudence Wellbourne’s innocence. Now well-coined, sophisticated and wiser, she can easily live without it. But the one man who holds the key to her stubborn heart calls that belief into question..
Fifteen years has done nothing to cool Argyle Clairmonte’s desire for Prudence. His reckless attempt to regain her love lands him in Newgate prison and the Bailey court. Only Prudence’s public admission of the truth, despite the scandal it will bring, can save him from the bitter consequences of his foiled plans.
Is hindsight the cure for love’s recklessness? Prudence must find an eloquent answer, or watch Argyle swing from The Tyburn Tree.
He has loved her for so long and now it is time to make his move. The thing is that Prudence Wellbourne denies the attraction and love. For years he has stood aside while she married another and not that his chance is here something crazy will happen. Prudence swore that she would not fall for Argyle again. Years ago he broke her heart and now that he’s back she is trying so hard to stay away from him. Marriage to the late Lord Wellbourne has taught her to be nice, demure and not be wild like she used to be. Yet one kiss from Argyle and she is back to her old self. She expected a lot of things from Argyle but this next stunt just blows her mind away. Can she say the truth when it is needed to help him?
Argyle Clairmonte has always loved Prudence Wellbourne but one stupid thing in his life he ruined any happiness with her. He used to be Prudence’s friend and now has loved her from afar. Her marriage to Lord Wellbourne was a mistake and they both know it. Yet even though she married and now a widow he is determined to get his woman. The plan was simple and that was just to get her to admit that she still loves him. He’s done many things but this escapade is the silliest and dangerous thing he’s done. Yet in his heart Argyle knows this is the time he would be reunited with his one true love.
This is the first I have read from Daisy Banks and won’t be the last. Argyle is so smitten with Prudence and loved that he finally has a chance to make a move. The love is still there yet Prudence is stubborn all the way. Daisy did a great job in showing that even through denial love is stronger than ever between these two. Great job to Daisy for showing that even through years of separation love is always there.
