Forced into hiding to save himself from
the brutal hands of the Harper brothers, David disguised
himself as Mary, an orphaned maiden and set out for the
country side. Saved from a robbery and possible rape that
would have turned deadly if his secret was revealed, David
found he was more than grateful to Alexander, the beautiful
man who was his rescuer. Staring up into Alexander's brown
eyes, David had never in his life felt such a strong
attraction to another person. And the way Alexander looked
at him-at Mary, David could almost believe Alexander felt
the same attraction. Knowing that nothing could ever become
of such thoughts or feelings David pushed them aside and
accepted the help that Alexander offered him, but resisting
Alexander's charms was a lot harder than David thought.
Alexander was overwhelmed with
protective feelings for the Lady Mary. Out of all the women
his mother had tried to marry him off to, not one has ever
made him feel such need as the raven-haired beauty, Mary.
But Alexander also has secrets that may prevent him from
spending the rest of his life with Mary.
I absolutely adored this story!
Tangled Web was the perfect title for it, everyone
had secrets and there were even bigger secrets than the one
David was keeping. David was the sweetest most caring
person, I couldn't help but love him. He would give his all
for those he cared about without thought to his own personal
safety and/or comfort. He proved this by saving the theater
where he was a principle actor, his action causing him to
become Mary and go into hiding, and also by aiding his
beloved cousin even though he was dealing with a broken
heart. Alexander's heart was just as caring, and he proved
himself to be a strong and moral character in his handling
of the many secrets that were revealed to change his life,
his beliefs, and the fate of his future. This was a
beautiful story, the perfect read for cuddling on the couch
on a rainy afternoon.
