I needed to get away.
My ex was getting married.
So, I left.
The English countryside was a picture-perfect escape.
The dashing stranger an even better one.
And what started as a chance encounter quickly became more.
He promised to show me how to live, how to feel alive and forget a past best forgotten.
He made me believe things could be different.
That was until I found out who he was . . .
He was Oliver Blackthorn.
The 16th Earl of Lockhart. Thirty-third in line to the throne.
And a liar.

I am new to the world of the Lancasters and the friends and family close to them. So, if you read this before other books of Ava Harrison, no worries, they can be read as standalones. As expected, I’ll go backwards and read about them.
This book has been a full ride, from a shady beginning, full of lies, deceit, to a place where one would do anything to mend a broken heart.
The story of Addison and Oliver started when she fled her life to “work” because her ex-boyfriend is now getting married and she cannot be there to see it. From all her properties, she searches for one that has nothing to do with him and finds the perfect place in nowhere England.
Willing to drink her sorrows, she hits the local pub where Oliver has already started burying his own issues. They click, they connect and soon they leave the world behind for a night. Unfortunately, he finds out the next day, that she is the one he needs to buy that piece of land from. Only problem, he likes her too much, but cannot tell her who he is.
For Addison, the worst happens when she falls in love with a man she knows nothing about, and finds out after she is convinced to sell that land to his mother. Soon she is forced to do whatever she can to forget him.
If you are in the mood to read a book where the hero has done bad things and now he needs to fix things, this is the book for you. I love that it takes more than quick apologies to be forgiven.
