Helena Lambarth is
celebrating the death of her father. She was a virtual
prisoner in Lambarth Castle. Helena was abused by her father
and separated from her beloved mother. Now that he is gone,
Helena has traveled to London to meet with her motherís
friend, Lady Lillian Darnell.
Lord Adam Darnell needs to
marry a wealthy woman. His father did not take care of the
estate and his stepmother Lady Darnell spends excessively. As
Adam contemplates this, he heads to retrieve poor orphaned
Helena. Expecting a child, he is shocked to find Helena a
woman who has clearly been mistreated.
While Adam continues with his
plans to marry the wealthy Lady Priscilla Standish, he is
slowly coming to admire and respect Helena, whoís beauty is
also becoming a fierce temptation for him. Now, Adamís
increasing desire for Helena is waging a war against his
feelings of duty.
In The Untamed Heiress,
Helena is magnificent. She is beautiful, honorable,
intelligent, innocent, unconventional and sensual, and I
really enjoyed watching Adam fall for her. As the story
progressed I was captivated by Adam and Helenaís plight. Each
character in The Untamed Heiress contributes to
its dramatic storyline, but itís Adam and Helena who enchanted
me in this incredibly moving and romantic story.
