Having finally discovered the truth of her birthright, Julia Elliston is determined to outwit Chance Macy at his own game. Holding a secret he’d kill to keep, however, is proving more difficult than she imagined.

Just when Julia thinks she’s managed to untangle herself from Macy’s clutches, he changes tactics with a risky ploy. As the scandal of the century breaks loose, drawing rooms all over London whisper what so far newspapers have not dared to print: Macy’s lost bride is none other than Lord Pierson’s daughter—and one of the most controversial cases of marital law ever seen comes before Victorian courts.

Though Julia knows Macy’s version of events is another masterful manipulation, public opinion is swaying in his favor. Caught in a web of deceit and lies, armed only with a fledgling faith, Julia must face her fiercest trial yet.

My thoughts:

I don’t buy many books anymore since I get most of them free for reviewing them. However, there are times when I miss the opportunity to review and book and there are some books that I absolutely must buy because I either love the author, or love the series. Such is the case with the last book in Jessica Dotta’s series. I bought this one because I had to see how this would end and I LOVED the first two books.

Jessica did not disappoint. This book wraps things up for Julia.

We are immediately thrown into Julie’s life with Edward and her worried thoughts about what Macy might do next. She truly has no rest from this man.

She also suffers constant rejection from others and she’s never able to forget that she is different than other people.

We readers will be on the edge of seats the whole time wondering when everything will fall into place and finally work out for our heroine.

One thing that might be nice for any readers who haven’t read the books yet is that you can read them all in a row. I did have trouble remembering things from previous books, because there is so much that happens. So I recommend reading them consecutively if you can.

This is also not a stand-alone book. I don’t think you can understand this book without reading the first two. As stated above, there is just too much that takes place.

I can’t wait to see what Jessica will come out with next 🙂
