About the book:

"When a British heiress discovers her fiancée is not the man he pretended to be she'll discover her sheltered upbringing has left her woefully unprepared to face a new life in Venezuela. The line between what is right and what you desire blurs in this exciting historical novel by Pauline Saull. When charming Carlton Blake convinces Elizabeth Hall to marry him, she is carried away with the idea of a life in 1880s Venezuela. But, when she travels to her new home for the wedding, she discovers her fiancée is only interested in her inheritance and his exotic mistress, Rosita, a beautiful Carib girl. Desperate, Elizabeth accepts shelter from British expatriate and rancher, Theo Furey. Will the embers her protector ignites within her become a flame Elizabeth cannot deny?
Content Notes: Historical, 1800's, Adventure, Sexy Spicy Romance"


What a brave woman Elizabeth is. I’d like to think I would have the courage she does if faced with the same situation. I loved how adventuresome this heroine was and how bravely she faces the obstacles that she encounters. She had a very enlightened attitude and the way she embraced her new life was refreshing. I was drawn into the story by the wonderful descriptions of this beautiful unspoiled setting and the charming characters. I could practically feel the lush humidity, see the exotic wildlife and touch the surrounding vegetation. Theo was so stoically heroic and Carlton so very smarmy and her new female friends were so accommodating and encouraging. I found this to be a delightful way to pass a Sunday afternoon and I look forward to reading more from this author.
