Review: Hero of My Heart by Megan Frampton

Rating: 3 Stars

Addiction is a horrible disease.It takes a very skilled author to make a hero from an opium addicted Lord. Ms. Frampton gives it a great shot in this unusual Historical Romance.

The story starts off great with him peaking out of his numbness to see a drugged miss being sold on the auction block. Shocked into chivalry, he buys Mary to protect her from all of the nefarious people in the bar. When he sees that she is an innoncent, well-bred miss, he sees his chance to set her up in luxury as his wife, and then plans to delve deeper into his opium induced lifestyle. The reason for his tortured soul are told but don't' quite make the impact they should, at least on me. When Alasdair's wicked cousin, his heir, enters the scene with a "doctor" Alasdair gives up and sends Mary away. Mary, although confused as to why he is "ill" leaves, but has second thoughts and returns to save him. The ensuing adventure of crossing Scotland and marrying and then returning to London is most of the story and it is very interesting to read.

This is the first book I've read of Ms. Frampton's. I will definitely read more from this author in hopes that she lives up to the potential she shows in this book. Potential because I was left confused as to the reasons behind a few parts of this story.

I recieved an early copy of this book from Netgalley for and honest review.
