Lady Ella Mysterson always finds a reason to smile. When she overhears her brother and his wife discussing the Fire Eyes, Ella is determined to ensure that her family is safe. Danger follows those in possession of the Fire Eyes, and Ella won't let her family be threatened again. She heads to the Cotswolds for an extended visit. James Cayton, an earl and cousin to the Duke of Stafford, is a man grieving. He's lost his wife before he could convince himself to love her. He's also broken the heart of another young lady. Now, he's determined to change his ways, and not get involved with anyone. Yet, he soon finds himself drawn into the danger surrounding the Fire Eyes. With a determination to keep his young daughter from danger, and Lady Ella, Cayton has to risk his heart. Can he open himself up to love?
This is the conclusion of the Ladies of the Manor series. It really is best to read them in order to follow the Fire Eyes on their journey.
I liked Lady Ella from the time that I first met her. I thought that she was very bubbly and a sweet. I wasn't wrong. But in this, her story, I learned that she's so much more than what she had first seemed. She's got a depth to her that I didn't expect. I loved how she and Cayton kept insisting that they didn't like each other, but you could tell that they did.
I loved watching how Cayton changed from the first book to this one. He redeemed himself from his actions in the first book in this one. I loved how he finally recognized what he was supposed to do and did it.
I really enjoyed this entire series. Book 2 was my favorite though.
I received this book for free from the publisher for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
