Meredith Duran’s newest intriguing historical fiction romance!
Crispin Burke was known as the black sheep of the family and when they needed him to be, also the scapegoat. He grew up trusting no one. He had determination, though, and a lofty goal. Crispin wanted to be the Prime Minister, and he was well on his way to attaining that position. He was wealthy and powerful and used blackmail and bribery to get whatever he wanted, including votes. Crispin had his share of enemies, though, and one of them tried to kill him.
Jane Mason, an heiress, had been planning her escape from her Uncle’s house, for a while. The controlling man was siphoning money from her account and insisting that she marry his son. But, Jane took matters into her own hands and married a man on his deathbed, Crispin Burke. Crispin had been unconscious for days and was not expected to live. The problem, though, was that the ruthless politician woke up and to his utter surprise, found himself a married man. Because of Crispin’s head injury, he couldn’t remember the last five years of his life. He accepted Jane’s lies about their marriage, as truth. Crispin promised to be a good husband and treated Jane with respect. In fact, Crispin was such a kind and thoughtful man, that Jane began to fall in love with him. But, what if Crispin recovered his memories? Could Jane escape his wrath?
A Lady’s Code of Misconduct held my interest from the very first page. It’s an in-depth well-written fascinating story, crafted with complex characters and situations. I loved watching Crispin and Jane, meet their challenges, grow and change. A Lady’s Code of Misconduct is an intriguing and captivating read. I loved it.
