Emily Payne has been left in the care of a man she has quickly grown to dislike. After her father leaves on an undisclosed business trip Emily is thrust into the care of Nicholas Brentwood. Stoic, secretive and quiet Emily just knows he’s going to ruin her chances of snagging a wealthy husband. And if there’s something she doesn’t need it’s someone to repel suitors. So ensues a messy season fraught with intrigue, death and witless suitors.
Michelle Griep receives rave reviews. I own a title by her, but have never quite gotten around to reading it. When Brentwood’s Ward came up for a review I thought I would go ahead and see what all the fuss was about. That “fuss” was well-placed. This was a great tale with Gothic elements, a sassy heroine and cold hero. Everything that was behind the mysteries was gradually revealed over a period of time and if I had been sitting on a chair while reading the story would have kept me at the edge of it.
