A Defense of Honor
When Katherine "Kit" FitzGilbert turned her back on London society more than a decade ago, she determined never to set foot in a ballroom again. But when business takes her to London and she's forced to run for her life, she stumbles upon not only a glamorous ballroom but also Graham, Lord Wharton. What should have been a chance encounter becomes much more as Graham embarks on a search for his friend's missing sister and is convinced Kit knows more about the girl than she's telling.
After meeting Graham, Kit finds herself wishing things could have been different for the first time in her life, but what she wants can't matter. Long ago, she dedicated herself to helping women escape the same scorn that drove her from London and raising the innocent children caught in the crossfire. And as much as she desperately wishes to tell Graham everything, revealing the truth isn't worth putting him and everyone she loves in danger.
My thoughts: I adored this story! It was well written an grabbed my attention from the get go, with Graham bored in a ballroom and a mysterious woman with a mission. I thought that Kristi did a fabulous job of bringing the characters to life, as well as some difficult situations in the Regency period. I am so excited about this series and look forward to reading the next book! In my haste to start this one, I skipped over the novella introducing the series, so now I will be going back to read the short story. The novella is free, so I highly recommend your going to download it.;)
I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
