Arend Aubury has a problem with trust. He had given so much in the past, and it had cost him a lot, and nearly his life. He trusts no one but the Libertine Scholars whom he owed so much. They have been there when he needed him the most and he kept no secrets from them except those dreadful years in his life that he kept to himself. The moment he met the stepdaughter of the woman who has been plotting against them, he already has his doubts. Then, when she tells them allegations against her stepmother, his suspicions arise. Problem is, can he resist the young and beautiful Isobel? Or will once again fell into a trap made by a pretty woman?
Lady Isobel Thompson wanted to marry someone with a pristine reputation, far from the mysterious and handsome Arend. However, she believes that her stepmother has something to do with the death of her father and only Arend can help her uncover that secret. Now, if only he can be able to trust her and believe that she has nothing to do with her stepmother’s activities. Arend suggests a fake engagement, and not long before Isobel is falling for his charms and forgets it was all for show. Will she be able to protect her heart? Can she thaw the ice and distrust that surrounds his heart? Will she be able to accept his deepest and darkest secrets?
It’s quite a task to like Arend at first, he was too distrustful, and Isobel was just too nice – a mere victim of circumstances. But once you get to know his secrets, he will surely have a place in your hearts. What he had been through was just awful. He’s lucky to have his friends that have his back and that has kept him sane.
Surprising, unexpected twists, steamy romance, a dash of drama some action makes this Disgraced Lords novel a fantastic read.
