Summary
David Fleming and Sophie Whitfield are escaping their problems when they end up at Uncle Pierson’s country house. David is hiding while he is being charged with attempted murder and Sophie’s husband is filing for divorce. They help Uncle Pierson with an archaeological dig on his property while there while they start to develop feelings for each other. They help each other with their legal problems and slowly fall in love.

Tropes
Titled hero, class difference, rake hero, divorce, archaeology, stuck together

The Plot
The plot felt like more of a clean up of a previous storyline. The drama of Sophie’s failed marriage and Davids duel, which resulted in attempted murder charges, has already happened, so the plot is more the resolution of their struggles and them finding their “ happy ever after.” There are little side bumps to the plot for both characters: romantic jealousy, mild deception, and anger for it.

The Heroine
Sophie Whitfield’s husband is divorcing her on the grounds of infidelity and infertility, none of which is true. Sophie is a sweet, innocent hero and, although I did like her, I was bummed that she just resigned herself to the fate her jerky husband dealt her. I understand that she was meant to be quiet, innocent, and sheltered to contrast David’s worldly, rakish ways, but I kept waiting for her to get mad about the card she’d been dealt!

The Hero
David Fleming is the right hand man to the Duke of Kilmorgan. In fact. He was in love with Eleanor and proposed to her in past books. Although David is whitty and made me laugh, he annoyed me a little with the constant self-flagellation. I wish he’d been a little more confident and, for all he has accomplished politically with Hart, he has every reason to be!

The Sex
There was some heavy kissing, a great, but brief scene with cream from a profiterole that was hot! But the good stuff didn’t happen till the very end, all in one night and not in great detail. Some books you enjoy for the steam and others you simply enjoy the romance!

Stand Out Moment
Since, for me this was more a romantic read than a steamy read, one of my favorite scenes was when they finally come together at the end at the ruins. So many sweet, romantic words exchanged! Swoon!

Who Would Like This
Anyone looking for a sweet romance with two people who deserve a happy ending!

Final Thoughts
Although I did enjoy this book, it didn’t hold a candle to the previous books in the Mackenzie-McBride storyline. ( )

I loved how their relationship developed. They're both at stressful, low points in their lives when they meet, and seeking a little respite and peace. They appear to be somewhat opposites, but they're good for each other and well suited to who the other truly is beneath their circumstances. I wasn't sure about the hero at the start of it, but he really grew on me. His feelings for the heroine squeezed my heart and felt so poignant. I love when characters truly want what's best for the other person, even if it doesn't coincide with their own desires. Lots of trying to resist being drawn to each other (with limited success ;) ). The heroine could have been a little less reactionary and exhibited a bit more substance beyond just her circumstances, but she wasn't a flat character. And overall she was likable. My favorite parts were their journey and all the feels. It had some good cameos from previous characters in the series, especially Eleanor, the Duchess of Killmorgan from book 4. Side subjects were archeology, early photography, and English marriage laws of the time. ( )

Jennifer Ashley continues to add the the extended MacKenzie Family saga with another great tale of love and redemption. When we meet David and Sophie both are embroiled in scandal and legal worries. David is being accused of attempted murder by a man who challenged him to a duel. Sophie is awaiting her divorce to be finalized after her husband accused her of adultery so that he could marry someone else.
Neither was looking for love but from the very first they were drawn to each other. Neither feels worthy of ever having a relationship. David is thought to be a rogue (although beneath the carefree exterior lies a heart of gold who would do anything for those he loves). Sophie's life has been dragged through the mud - she has left London to hide out with her uncle the vicar, helping him on a dig for Roman ruins in a nearby field.
The characters are smart. Sophie is an intellegent woman and the men in the book treat her with the respect she deserves.
