A woman with a secret...

Reckless beauty Lily Lawson delights in shocking London society. She will break any rule to get what she wants... and she is determined to stop her younger sister from marrying Alex, Lord Wolverton, a handsome and arrogant earl who has vowed never to fall in love.

A man who will do anything to possess her...

To Alex's fury, the headstrong hellion presents a temptation he can't resist. He vows to make her pay dearly for her interference—with her body, her soul, and her stubborn, well-guarded heart.

As Alex and Lily challenge each other at every turn, they are caught up in a white-hot desire that burns through every defense and exposes the mystery of Lily's past... and together they discover that love is the most dangerous game of all.

"Why hasn't she ever married?"
"Lily has always said that marriage is a dreadful 
institution devised for the benefit of men, not women."

This was one of the most beautiful historical romance novels I have ever encountered. 

The main character Lily was the most outspoken and brave heroine in historical romance fiction. She is unbelievable. I admired her so much. 

Alex. Oh, Alex. I wish they made people like you in real life. Cause you are unbelievable. From frowny serious man to a sweet, passionate perfection? Oh, my. 

This story was epic. Lily was the perfect mess of a main character, and not because she was messy, but because she was strong, with a sharp tongue, brilliant sarcasm, and charming personality. She is in simple words, purely awesome.

The story it's written so beautifully. The character building, the emotions, the twists, the sense of loss. It was a hell of a ride. 

If you are a fan of historical romance and a strong-willed main character, then Then Came You is the perfect book for you!
