Daphne Foliot always knew she’d have to marry the man her father chose for her. She never imagined to be in the center of a conspiracy that’ll rock her entire World.

Forced to chose between her future husband and her father, Daphne’s life is about to be upended like she never would have imagined.

I am in absolute awe of this story. Gideon and Daphne stole all of my heart and then some.

Gideon is the man of my dreams. He just wants to do good but also knows sometimes who have to pretend to be a crook in order to beat the actual crooks. He’s just such a badass. I also constantly swooned at him falling for Daphne. It was an utter delight to read. He’s the best kind of soul and like legit magical.

Daphne, my sweet summer child. She is naive but she’s far from stupid. Also, she could take over this world if she wanted to and I’d gladly follow her. She was THE PERFECT match for Gideon and man their chemistry blew me away.

I actually really REALLY love this story. It has action, adventure, magic and my favourite myths of all, King Arthur. This book was such a delight to read. I am just blown away to the max.

5 Stars!

captivating the scoundrel

Daphne Foliot has always known she’ll be married off to a man who, like her, descended from one of King Arthur’s fabled knights. That doesn’t mean she wants to be, even if it is her beloved father’s wish. Raised without a mother, she owes everything to the man who encouraged and funded her education and supports her dream of becoming the first female member of the Order of the Round Table. But when she suspects her chosen husband is a traitor to the Order, she plans to expose his treachery, regardless of their extraordinary mutual attraction.

Heir to the thirteen treasures of Britain, Gideon Kersey vows to do anything to protect his family’s legacy from a secret society bent on exploiting the items for personal gain, including marry a woman he doesn’t love. Except she ignites a passion he was certain died with his first wife, and when the truth behind the Order’s objectives threatens everything Daphne knows, Gideon must fight to save her—and any future they hope to share.
