When US Senator’s daughter Lauren Cusack arrives at the enchanting Wyckham College of Oxford University, she hopes to mend her broken heart by throwing herself into her studies.

But then English aristocrat Alexander Hunt walks into her life and everything changes. Handsome, brooding, and with his own dark past to escape, Alexander is exactly what Lauren doesn’t need – but she finds herself helplessly drawn towards him.

Both Alexander and Lauren know that they should stay away from each other . . . but sometimes desire is so powerful that it conquers all else.

Tomorrow we have a blog tour stop for the second book in this series but I thought you would all like to know what I thought of book one first.

I have to admit I don’t know too much about the lives of the Alexander Hunt’s and the Rupert De Courcey’s of this world. I don’t really know anything about their traditions, their hobbies or their way of life. I can totally understand how Lauren felt when she is thrown into this world.

I like Lauren. She is easy to relate to. While she may have wealthy parents she is very down to Earth. She’s not fazed by how much money Alexander has and to be honest she couldn’t care if he lost it all.

Alexander is a stubborn, sexy, damaged man. He’s been through a lot and it has definitely shaped his life. I don’t want to give too much away but damn is that boy hot.

I raced through the ending of this book because I was enjoying it so much. The tensions are running high and it’s a pretty explosive last few chapters that definitely kept me on my toes.

This book is sizzling and exciting as well as glamorous and dramatic
