Must forbidden love end in heartbreak?
Kayla Sinclair knows she’s in big trouble when she almost bankrupts herself to buy a life-size portrait of a mysterious eighteenth century man at an auction.
Jago Kerswell, inn-keeper and smuggler, knows there is danger in those stolen moments with Lady Eliza Marcombe, but he’ll take any risk to be with her.
Over two centuries separate Kayla and Jago, but when Kayla’s jealous fiancé presents her with an ultimatum, and Jago and Eliza’s affair is tragically discovered, their lives become inextricably linked thanks to a gypsy’s spell. Kayla finds herself on a quest that could heal the past, but what she cannot foresee is the danger in her own future.
Will Kayla find heartache or happiness?
I liked this one because fates intertwined are always fun ;)
Right so we got two stories. First the tragic love story of Eliza and Jago. So why is it tragic? She is married and he is an innkeeper (and the bastard brother of her husband). They meet, the fall in love. All set in the late 1700s.
In modern time we have Kayla who is about to get married and buys a portrait of a handsome man. And that causes her a bunch of problems, with her fiance, with life in general. She needs to find out what happened back then, and maybe, just maybe she will get a HEA of her own (of course she will! Would I steer you guys wrong?)
So we have that love story and Kayla trying to find some answers. There is even a bit of suspense at the end. And yes of course there is a bit of romance too.
I liked how it all came together.
I like it more the more I stare
