Destitute and determined to finally be free of any man's shackles, Lily Benedict sets out to salvage her honor. With no choice but to commit a crime that will save her from her past, she enters the home of the recluse Derek Winters, the new Duke of Blackthorne. But entering the "Beast of Blackthorne's" lair proves more threatening than she ever imagined.
With half a face and a mangled leg, Derek - once rugged and charming - only exists within the confines of his home. Shunned by society, Derek is leery of the hauntingly beautiful Lily Benedict. As time passes, she slips past his defenses, reminding him how to live again. But when Lily's sordid past comes back, threatening her life, it's up to Derek to find the strength to become the hero he once was. Can they overcome the darkness of their sins to find a life of love and redemption?

"Story can be half it's length"
So much repetitious mind babble. Same words over and over and over to the point it was maddening. This book was definitely not for me. Beauty and the beast beaten over the head.
"Lords of Honor Book 3 Not much story line.
The story started out fine and then it was slow. There was too much repetition of Lily's demeaning herself all the time.
This book had the potential to be good but the author should have realized that self loathing and entitlement can only be tolerated for so long.
