It should have been the happiest night of her life…

Lady Olivia Sheridan knows one thing: she has loved Lord Damien forever. But when her beloved is accused of fathering another woman’s child, Olivia’s world is shattered in ways she never thought possible. Especially when Damien’s accuser sets a huge price on his head, and Olivia discovers Damien’s death will be the only outcome…unless she does the one thing he will never forgive her for doing.

When Olivia’s plan to save him goes disastrously, dangerously awry, Damien doesn’t think he’ll ever see the light of day again and, with bitterness, he realizes that the woman he loves is capable of the ultimate betrayal.

Now, four years later, Damien has returned. His eye is on one thing: seeking revenge for what Olivia did to him. Only his heart may get in the way…

Because hell hath no fury…like a man betrayed.
So much potential that just didn't seem to get where it should.  Lady Olivia believes the love of her life to be dead - until he shows back up again looking for revenge.  I just had a hard time buying that he would be that upset about her actions.  So upset that he was set to ruin her life and take everything away from her.  How could I like a "hero" like that? Yes there were things that happened to him that changed who he was, but there really needed to be some more redeeming qualities to him.

Lady Olivia wasn't very smart for being an intelligent woman.  With betrayal all around her, she doesn't seem to notice that someone is out to hurt her business.  She's also too humble to point out all the things she did for Damien while he was "dead".  He never seems to realize that she's the one that kept things going for him and she never really speaks up when she has the chance.

There was just too much that didn't quite make sense and line up for me.
