"If someone here is rude to you, then look at me."
Look at me. Because she would see what she always did: admiration, approval, desire.
"Look at me," Kingston repeated, "because I will remind you of the truth."
Such complex characters with nuanced story telling. A true rake and an "unlikeable" heroine, who managed to come together in such a compelling way. Definitely going back to start at the beginning of this series; writing that escapes the usual historical romance mold.
