After an ill-fated night of gambling, struggling photographer Hadrian St. Claire is deep in debt and danger when a man comes into his shop with a unique commission: one scandalous photograph of a young suffragist leader that will bring her and the bill in Parliament granting women the right to vote crashing down. One photograph, which will earn him 5,000, enough to pay off his debt and advance his dreams. The catch? The target is Caledonia Rivers, the charming woman he encountered in the park, the woman who has already begun working her way into his heart. Against an incredibly textured backdrop of Edwardian politics and social change, Tarr pens a vibrant tale of love's ability to heal scars of the past. And not unlike the era itself, the genteel veneer of Hadrian and Callie's awareness of each other gives way to highly sensual passion churning beneath. Fans of intelligent, sexy historical romance in the style of Jo Beverley will take to Vanquished. Nina DavisCopyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved
