Book Description:
He believes in destiny. She just wants to survive it...

At forty, Lady Cecilia Evangeline Stone thinks she has everything a woman could ever want. A title, a fortune, and four children who make her proud. After a marriage of convenience that was anything but convenient, she has no desire to complicate her life by including a man in it again. When her eldest son announces his engagement to a Russian actress in Saint Petersburg, Cecilia sets out to do what any good mother would do: stop the wedding. Unfortunately, destiny has other plans.

Konstantin Alexie Levin never considered himself to be a villain. In fact, he considers himself to be a Russian gentleman. Having grown up in a refined and well-educated family that embraced criminal life to avoid debtor’s prison, the only thing preventing him from knowing happiness is the rest of the world. Everything changes, however, when Konstantin is given a chance to start life anew and travel to London to collect an unexpected reward for saving a man’s life. To his surprise, he is about to become a hero at midnight to a beautiful aristocrat who desperately needs his help. The problem is…he wants to do more than save Lady Stone. He wants to make the woman his, all his.

My Thoughts on the Book
I stumbled upon this ebook and am pleasantly surprised. Now I want to read the whole series and I will... eventually. On my to read shelf.

Lady Stone is one her way to Russia to stop her son's marriage to a much older woman. When she is robbed and left on a coach with no money, papers or knowledge of where she is... she needs a hero and Konstantin is the perfect man.

Konstantin has been part of a shady past but he's trying to turn his life around. Saving the life of a wealthy man has started him in the right direction and on the way to London for his reward he comes across and damsel in distress.

Konstantin believes in a family superstition about great things happening at midnight for his family. When Lady Stone wakes up and introduces herself at midnight, he realizes destiny has stepped into his life as has love.

Konstantin seems very gentlemanly but he wants Cecilia Stone and he's going to get what he wants even if he tries hard to deny himself.

The best part is Cecilia is willing to hand herself over to this dangerously attractive Russian who awakes her heart and her passion.

Great novella!
