Genres: Adult, Historical Romance
This Knight of the Crown is driven by a painful past and a patient fury… and his entire life is a lie.
Sir Carlton Morley is famously possessed of extraordinary will, singular focus, and a merciless sense of justice. As a man, he secured his fortune and his preeminence as Scotland Yard’s ruthless Chief Inspector. As a decorated soldier, he was legend for his unflinching trigger finger, his precision in battle, and his imperturbable strength. But as a boy, he was someone else. A twin, a thief, and a murderer, until tragedy reshaped him.
Now he stalks the night, in search of redemption and retribution, vowing to never give into temptation, as it’s just another form of weakness.
Until temptation lands—quite literally—in his lap, taking the form of Prudence Goode.
Prim and proper Pru is expected to live a life of drudgery, but before she succumbs to her fate, she craves just one night of desire. On the night she searches for it, she stumbles upon a man made of shadows, muscle and wrath… And decides he is the one.
When their firestorm of passion burns out of control, Morley discovers, too late, that he was right. The tempting woman has become his weakness.
A weakness his enemies can use against him.

UGH I have so many feelings about Carlton! Like huge ginormous can’t handle them anymore kind of feelings.
Prudence is such a freaking badass and I am so in love with her. I am so here for a woman who wants to take her sexuality into her own hands. SHE DON’T NEED NO MAN!!! I actually really liked her story arc. She needed Carlton’s protection his name but she was not ready to take his shit. My girl knew to stand up for herself. A KWEEN!
I turn into an absolute fool for broken fictional men. I will stay on this hill for my whole life if I have to but Carlton Morley can GET IT!!! He was confident about his work but shy when he received praises??? I adore how he was still the boy who wanted to find love and live a happy life.
This story was genuinely wholesome and I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it.
