About the Author : Anna Durbin is the author of charming tales of the Beau Monde. Having grown up reading sagas of chivalry and romance, she began crafting her own elaborate stories in her imagination at a young age. It was only natural that she would one day write them down. Her first novel, King of Swords, was a 2012 Golden Heart® finalist. Despite years of study in the biological and physical sciences, her true love has always been the literary arts. Inspired by her favorite author, Jane Austen, Anna adores the Regency Era and writes period pieces set during that time that show love conquering adversity. Oddly, for all her love of science and history, she is a faithful devotee of the New Age. She discovered tarot cards in a New Age shop in Minneapolis during a high school class trip one year and has been enchanted with them ever since. She enjoys weaving the symbolism of the tarot deck into her storylines. Anna has lived in ten different states throughout her lifetime, from California to New Jersey. A Midwesterner at heart, she was born in Kansas and raised in Iowa. Currently, she lives in Wisconsin with her husband and works as a technician for local government.
My Say : Although “Romance” is not my genre but I liked reading this one. As you read on, there are all kinds of exciting things going on as the characters develop and their relationships too. I loved reading about Lady Cassandra. She is determined and surrounded by men who all seem to want to use her but still she comes out from it. She is an intelligent heroine who must turn against her own family to achieve her dreams. This is an historical novel set in the early 1800s. Lady cassandra becomes 30 in two months. She has plans for her money she will get when she reaches that time. She wants to start a home for battered women because her own sister was killed by her husband. Her conniving brother has plans to get money from her because he is deep in debt. If he can get Lady Cassandra married he can get to her money. Lady Cassandra does not get along with Lord William Poniard and he does not know why. When he comes to the aid of Cassandra in her dispute with her brother, Who is an enemy, surprising feelings emerge and interesting things happen. It’s a heart-pounding romantic adventure does not disappoint. A tale with twists found in classical myths, dubious villians, revenge and obviously love!
