I love this book! It’s funny, interesting, romantic and is full of adventure and chaos! The mystery is written sooo well! The adventure is super engaging! And I just adored this book overall!!!

This book is about an opera singer who has escaped her caged life and ran off to the moors. But when an escaped convict is discovered on her land she rushes to save his life before it’s too late. Then everything changes when they realize they both are tied to the crime he is convicted of. Now on a mission to find the truth, they must risk their lives and their hearts to restore what is stolen and mend what was lost…

This book was amazing. It was romantic and adventurous! It had mystery and humor! I just loved how it was written and totally suggest this book to young women looking for a fun, romantic, historical read filled with action and adventure!!!

Now, there is quite a bit of violence in this book. The man did escape from a prison… There is mention of guards beating people up close to death. Mention of blood, wounds, dying. Mention of people attacking each other and being stabbed, punched and abused. And there is also a guard in the book with twisted ideas of God’s judgement and he tends to beat on kids and criminals rather brutally. Not to mention there is also some adult topics brought up. Mention of men leering at women and trying to do stuff with them. (Never described only mentioned)

Overall, this book is amazing!!! I completely adore it and totally suggest it!!!! I love this author and can’t wait to read more books by her soon!!!!!!!!!!!! May you have a Very, Blessed Day. -The Young Llama Reader.

Opera star Maggie Lee escapes her opulent lifestyle when threatened by a powerful politician who aims to ruin her life.

She runs off to the wilds of the moors to live in anonymity.

All that changes the day she discovers a half-dead man near her house.

Escaped convict Oliver Ward is on the run to prove his innocence, until he gets hurt and is taken in by Maggie.

He discovers some jewels in her possession—the very same jewels that got him convicted.

Together they hatch a plan to return the jewels, clearing Oliver’s name and hopefully maintaining Maggie’s anonymity.
