Raven Wells is no ordinary girl. Plucked from an orphanage by a scheming earl, she has been raised like a thoroughbred, groomed for one purpose: Revenge. Unfortunately, the Earl of Trent never let her in on the plan, so when she meets the man of her dreams, Sir Phillip Warrick, she has no idea that every lesson, every tutor and every impulsive inch of her was crafted for his seduction and destruction. What she does know is that love is the prize she wants most and that nothing should stand in a woman’s way to getting what she wants.
Phillip Warrick is simply
trying to recover his friendship with the earl, unaware that the man
has spent years laying the foundation for destroying Phillip’s peace of
mind. What he does know is that the earl’s ward, Raven Wells, is
mesmerizing, fascinating and apparently without reserve. Witty,
beautiful, impulsive and impossible—she is like a siren beckoning him to
forget the rules and seize only the pleasures of the moment.
their love will set in motion a series of events that no one can
foresee. Revenge creates more than one victim, but also more than one
winner. Raven Wells will be transformed into a force of nature the likes
of which Victorian London has never experienced before. LADY FALLS is
the birth of the Black Rose and the end of innocence. From Goodreads.
I liked both Raven and Phillip but for a historical romance I thought they jumped into bed with each other a bit fast, as in two days after they met! Also the way their first sexual encounter is described doesn't quite fit with the end of the book. But I liked the story and I am interested in reading the continuation of it.
