Shelves: Speed review: I loved this. The more I read of this, the more I was surprised this was published under a Harlequin line. This is a dark, sensual, forceful read and I had a tremendously hard time putting it down. The characters have secrets, all of them, and are so intertwined that at times you almost want to give the author thunderous applause at how deftly she wove this story together.

Miranda Speed review: I loved this. Miranda is a Lady born, but raised in poverty. She has known nothing but service since she was 10 years old.
She has callouses on her hands and has known backbreaking work. Hardly the makings of a lady of the Ton. In a daring move to save Miranda from the life they have been living, her parents send her unchaperoned to the home of two notorious rakes - brothers St John and Marcus Radwell Duke of Haughleigh , hoping one of them will offer for her and "save her reputation". Some families are not loving however, and while Miranda had known poverty but also love, the brothers Radwell have only known jealousy and strife.
Raised by parents who hated each other, the former Duke favored Marcus while his wife showed overt favoritism to St John, which has caused decades of anger between them.
Marcus was fascinating to me. At times you could see he wanted to feel love towards his mother and even towards St John, but so much water under the bridge has made that impossible. When he meets Miranda and understands what has transpired her being alone with his brother and himself , he immediately offers for her.
He sees in her a kindred soul of sorts, and cannot allow her to be ruined and cast off into a life servitude or worse. They fight quite a bit and Marcus is cruel to her several times. Miranda takes quite a bit from Marcus because she believes she should be grateful for the position she now holds. But Marcus is not a tyrant. He eventually has a "come to Jesus" moment and realized what he is doing and not doing and makes great effort to bring Miranda up into the world she should rightfully have been living all along.
Secrets, lies, family fights - none of these can stay hidden for long and eventually they rear their ugly head, but it only makes the story more enthralling. Marcus is NOT the martyr, he gives as good as he gets. Miranda is NOT a Cinderella, rising from the ashes with the help of a fairy godmother. They are all three flawed human beings.
A dark, hidden gem of the first order wrapped in a Harlequin bow. Kudos Ms.
