A scar of the body cannot wholly destroy beauty. Only a scar of the spirit can do that.

Mary Jo Putney (Silk & Shadows : Chapter 15)

Book Description:

He called himself Peregrine, the wanderer, and he came to London for revenge…

Like the falcon he named himself for, Peregrine is wild and free, an exotic prince who fascinates 1839 London with his wealth, mystery, and dangerous allure. He emerged from his mysterious Asiatic past to exact retribution for an appalling crime. Nothing and no one can stop him—except perhaps Lady Sara St. James, whose fragile beauty conceals a gentle heart, genuine goodness, and a soul of steel.

Unable to resist his seductive charm, Lady Sara turns away from her ordered life to embrace a man she loves, but cannot fully trust. In Sara, Peregrine sees a chance for a life beyond revenge. But can he keep her without revealing his devastating secrets? Or protect her from the enemy he has vowed to destroy?

My Review:  

Yes its a revenge story but  knitted beautifully with love. As a reader I could tell how involved the writer was. Didn’t find loose ends throughout the story. Each and every character held a strong ground in the novel and were very  believable. Though it has its own cliché points, which is normal I guess. I was able to visualize while reading which is in favour of this book. The best part of this book was the knowledge involved regarding different civilizations, lands & customs around the world. One can learn quite a few things at the end with a good story. Had a great time reading this book .
