I believe this was my favorite of the three books in this series. We first met Robert (Bit)in the first book, The Rake as the brooding tormented brother of Viscount Dare, Tristan Carroway. Robert spent 7 months as a POW. He was tortured and finally shot and left for dead. He spent three years at home unable to escape the blackness that had become his life. ( Extreme PTSD) Then in this book, he becomes involved with Lucinda and finally a turning point for Bit. Lucinda is one of the three young ladies who wrote lists and made plans to teach certain men lessons in love. Great book (series)about family, friendship and the power of love. ~sigh~ I wish there were about 25 more chapters about Bit! I would love to read an epilogue!!
