Emotional and heartfelt angst will have you gripping the pages on this one!! ~ Rosalie Belle – Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews




Constance Campbell, the Duchess of Kilmaine, once believed that all she needed in life was a duke. But everything unraveled when she realized her perfect husband was a perfect monster. Now broken beyond repair, she hides her misery behind a perfect Society mask…even from her childhood friend, Alec.

Dr. Alec McGuiness reluctantly finds himself back in Scotland, and checking up on the only woman to ever get under his skin, Connie. After she spurned him many years ago, he knows his humble life as a doctor could never be enough for her. But when the Duke of Kilmaine is murdered in cold blood, with Connie sleeping right next to him in bed, Alec knows he must protect Connie at all costs from those who would frame her for the duke’s murder.

Now on the run, Connie feels a freedom she only ever dreamed about, and an unexpected attraction to the man who is keeping her safe. But even if they can win her freedom and clear her name, could she ever open her heart up to someone again?

** Content & trigger warning: this novel features themes, imagery & content that my be triggering for some readers. Discussions of domestic violence, physical abuse, rape & death appear within. Scenes depicting anxiety, panic attacks & graphic violence/death also appear **



Constance Campbell (Connie) wanted to become royalty. All her life, she wanted to marry a Duke. To become a Duchess would be everything she ever wanted and more!! Even separating herself from her childhood friend, Alec, she knew what she was after in life to become happy.

However, one becoming the Duchess of Kilmaine, she realized that everything in royalty isn’t all she believed to be with her husband Duncan. Physically and verbally abusive, Duncan took any and everything out on her. Knowing this is NOT what she saw as her life, Connie knew this was how she would live to protect Duncan’s first duaghter (from his widow wife) Amelie.

Alec, visiting to check on his former flame and sister’s best friend, immediately knows something is wrong when he spies Connie at a ball her husband is holding. Knowing he has to protect her, he leaves, vowing to make sure that the rights are wronged.

Before Alec can take care of the Duke, he is murdered, and Connie, not being able to remember anything, is the prime suspect. Knowing she is not capable of murder, no matter what the Duke did to her, Dr. McGuinness (yes he’s a sexy Scottish Dr!!) vows to not only free her from the accusations, but from being scared of any man again…in his own way. His heart and his hands will cure any fear she has ever had.

This book gave me all the feels. Connie immediately clutched my heart with her abuse. Not knowing love by a man, and Alec stepping in to right the wrongs (knight in shining armor…ho hum 😍) had me crying and longing for Connie to have the happiness she so deserves.

5 stars
