Lisa Madison loves Robert Langley; Robert Langley loves Lisa Madison too but not in the same way. He still sees Lisa as an impish child rather than the woman she has become. Although like her older siblings (see The Heiress and The Countess), she has many wannabe suitors, Lisa plans to prove to Robert that she is a woman in love with a dolt who she believes loves her too.

However, someone stalks Lisa. She is poisoned and almost abducted. Robert vows to protect Lisa though he prefers to keep his distance as he knows beneath his veneer of pretending she is a child, he wants her. His parents’ marriage left him with a commitment phobia. However, when his beloved Lisa vanishes, Robert risks his life to save her and tell her how he really feels.

The latest Madison Sisters historical romantic suspense is an engaging tale as Robert affirms the child is the adult with his anti-marriage stance that needs a greater trauma to shake him up. The story line is fast-paced and filled with pathos and humor. The villain’s obsession comes across genuine though his overall performance (four attempts) is poor. Readers will enjoy this exciting nineteenth century thriller due to the fully developed flawed key characters.
