Perhaps she should have knocked.

Or, preferably, remained safely abed.

Before her stood a man, not one of her brothers that she still pictured as boys even though they were two and four years her senior, but instead a true man—stripped to the waist, his back to her.

Thank the heavens above for small miracles.

But to deny that her heart skipped a beat—or ten—would be preposterous. In fact, as Patience stood, unnoticed, studying the man now looking out Merit’s open window, she wondered if her heart would ever beat a normal, steady rhythm again or if her skin would ever cool enough to need an overcoat or shawl. It was only when her lungs began to burn that she realized she’d held her breath since opening the door, a call of greeting stuck in her throat.

One utterly forgotten.

So intent on the window, the man failed to notice he was no longer alone.

There was no denying the stranger’s presence—an unfamiliar masculine air filled the room. It was both intriguing and frightening. Certainly, she’d witnessed men in various stages of undress, but this goliath was different. Never had Patience been so utterly aware of her own body, while distracted by the sight of another’s chiseled form. Her hands itched to reach out at the same time they should be raising to cover her exposed flesh, veiled only by her thin nightshift.

I received this book from the Netgalley for an honest review.

I loved the names of these characters!!  Sin and Patience. These names totally go with these characters and also totally do not go with these characters…LOL

Sin is exactly that…Sinful to look at but he is not the rakeshell you would assume he is given he is sneaking into Patience brothers room in the middle of the night.

Patience is as patience when she wants to help someone but really doesn’t have patience when people don’t listen to her…LOL

The couple meet under less than normal circumstances and then meet again at a soiree when Patience is trying to get people to listen to her.  She is worried about the dangers of prizefighting that the men of the ton seem to enjoy betting on and participating in.  Patience really is a forward-thinking woman in this book and I enjoyed it.

When she saves Sin from his disastrous and then offers to train him as long as he conforms to her rules.  I loved it.  I mean what kinda women tells a man what to do in this day and age???  Well Patience sure does tell Sin the business…too bad he isn’t being totally honesty with her about his agreements.

When the plot thickens, and we see the couple have a huge disagreement about his prizefighting days, I loved loved loved that he was the one to chase her with her brothers tagging along.

I loved so much about this book.  It was so different from any Historical story I have read.  Patience is a woman with a strong mind and a very strong sense of self.  She was soooo refreshing to me too see and read about.  Sin was also a great character.  He is doing all he knows…fighting.  He wasn’t educated, and he doesn’t know any other way to fill his coffers to save his lands.  He too is a much different hero that we would normally read about.
