My rating: 5 of 5 stars
‘Beguiled by a Baron’ by Christi Caldwell is book 14 in “The Heart of a Duke” series. This is the story of Bridget Hamilton and Vail Basingstoke, Baron Chilton. This can be a standalone book if you choice to do so.
Bridget has been set aside by her family because of her partial deafness and has lived with just a close family servants. Bridget has only ever been useful to her brother when he needed something from her. Since her parents death that has left her brother taking charge of her life. Which has never been a good thing….this man is evil, in debt and cares for no one. So when he comes forward to ask her to steal a valuable book from Vail she of course refuses. But he then threatens her ‘son’ and with throwing her into a mental health center. So she agrees to do what he wishes.
Vail has learned that people cannot be trusted and can hurt you allot but he still tries to care for the bastard kids his father has left.
When his household hires a new house maid name Bridget he is quickly drawn to her and her mind. But how will he react when he finds out she isn’t what she appears to be?
This was another great, heartfelt book by Ms. Caldwell. Ms. Caldwell books just wrap you into a story and you just can’t put the book down.
