Description

A Top 10 iBooks Bestseller from a New York Times Bestselling Author!

London, 1666

Amethyst Goldsmith makes dazzling jewelry, but her future isn’t nearly as bright as the pieces she creates. Though custom dictates she wed her father’s apprentice, her heart rebels against the match. In mere days Amy will be condemned to a stifling, loveless marriage, and she sees no way out—until the devastating fire of 1666 sweeps through London, and tragedy lands her in the arms of a dashing nobleman who knows a diamond in the rough when he sees it…

Colin Chase, the Earl of Greystone, has his future all figured out. He’s restoring his crumbling castle and estate to its former glory, and the key to its completion is his rich bride-to-be. But the Great Fire lays waste to his plans, saddling him with trouble—in the form of a lowly shopkeeper’s daughter with whom he’s most inconveniently falling in love...

    The story got interesting just half way through the book when Amethyst got kidnapped by ex fiancé. The description and details of the book were well thought but it stops there for me.

    I absolutely loved this book. Amethyst and Colin were wonderful characters. The whole story transported me to their time. I am now looking to buy the rest of the trilogy. Fabulous.

    This book was great, I wanted to read it at every turn. Some books repeat lines as you get to similar parts but this one never did. It had a good old story but never boring and as you can see where it's going it still had bits that I never saw coming. Good read.
