Jude Samson has worked for the Woodley family for such a long time that he is seen as a brother. But he has very unbrotherly feelings toward the youngest of the clan, Lady Audrey. When they find themselves off at the family’s country estate, long simmering desires will come to the forefront and Jude won’t be able to stop himself from taking that one, oh-so-forbidden taste.
After seeing what it has done to her family, Audrey is afraid of passion. But the moment Jude touches her, fear is washed away by intense and powerful lust. Only Jude has a secret that could destroy everything that is beginning to develop between them. And when it comes out, it will change everything.
It is the first book of a new series and therefore a big part of the book is about setting the stage for the series. It’s a stand-alone story, but I don’t think many people will be able to resist reading next books in the series to find out what happened to Claire. Back to the book itself, Audrey is a very likeable girl, sometimes a bit naive, but overall really nice, Jude struggles with his position in life, he’s neither a servant nor a gentleman, but somewhere in between. I think they made a great couple.
