Archer Hamilton is a collector of rare and beautiful insects. Gina Shaw is a servant in his uncle's house. Clearly out of place in the position in which she has been discovered, she becomes a source of fascination . . . and curiosity.
A girl with a blighted past and a fortune she deems a curse, Gina has lowered herself in order to find escape from her family and their scheming designs. But when she is found, the stakes suddenly become dire.
All Gina wants is the freedom to live her life as she would wish. All her aunts want is the money that comes with her. But there is more than one way to trap an insect. An arranged marriage might turn out profitable for more parties than one.
Mr. Hamilton is about to make the acquisition of a lifetime. But will the price be worth it? Can a woman captured and acquired learn to love the man who has bought her?
Disclaimer: This book addresses the repercussions of, and the ultimate transcendence over, sexual abuse and rape. While not graphic in nature, the subject matter may be triggering for some.
Characters were developed so specific and associated together. Continued to read hoping there was conflict resolution. Then the story continued still holding my attention waiting again for resolution. Perfect ending with restoration of both the heroes.55

A good read.55
Great read! I kept wishing the couple would have come clean sooner about their pasts, yet this felt more realistic. I couldn’t put it down.55
