In 1844 in the freezing Tower of Pembroke Castle, the teen Duke of Keswick Sebastian Easton (see She Tempts The Duke) and his two brothers Rafe and Tristan (see Lord of Temptation) expect to die like their father did at the hands of their Uncle Lord David Easton. Instead their childhood friend Mary Wynne-Jones helps them escape from certain execution though they go separate ways. Rafe survived living in the worst sections of London and employed as a child in the brutal workhouses. However, by 1859, he has seen his siblings restored to their proper places and married.

Illegitimate daughter of an earl, Evelyn Chambers expects her half-brother to take care of her after their father died. . Instead of honoring their late dad’s wish, her sibling offers Evelyn for sale. Rafe wins the bidding war, but is shocked when his mistress thinks they will marry, but not as much as she is. As they fall in love, Evelyn tries to understand the demons that possess her beloved’s heart and rejection of kind touches.

The third Lost Lords of Pembrook Victorian romance is an entertaining historical starring a wounded warrior and the angel risking her heart to try to heal him. Although one must question whether love is enough to save Rafe’s soul as he is the poster-child of AFU, fans will enjoy Evelyn’s efforts to simply hug him.
