Desperate to protect her father from trial and death, Genevieve breaks off her engagement with Christian Amesbury and marries a blackmailer. After a year of marriage, she flees her husband's violent domination only to have fate bring her back to Christian. Just when she thinks she's started a new life of safety and solitude, her husband tracks her down, stalks her, and threatens everyone she loves. 
Still brokenhearted over Genevieve's betrayal a year ago, Christian can't believe she's come back into his life--and worse, that she's done it on the anniversary of his brother's death, a death that haunts him. Though tempted to throw her back into the river where he found her, he can't leave her at the mercy of the terrifying man she married. 
When her husband torments Genevieve and puts his family in danger, Christian will do anything to protect those he loves...anything except give Genevieve another chance to break his heart

I have received this book as part of a book tour in exchange of an honest review.
I enjoyed the previous books in this series so I was curious to see what would happen in this book.  
Christian is in love with Genevieve but when he decides to propose she suddenly marries another man. Christian decides that the best course of action is to close his heart off so he won’t get hurt again.
A year later Genevieve enters his life again, and this time she is hiding from her husband.
I really liked Christian in the other books so I really wanted him to get his chance at a happy ending.
I have to say there’s real tension and problems between Christian and Genevieve and their relationship is not an easy one. Christian quite obviously loved Genevieve and I enjoyed reading about them meeting again and having to deal with past decisions and learn how to trust each other.
I might not have liked this book as much as I liked the previous two but I still enjoyed it quite a lot. Donna Hatch definitely knows how to create an interesting story that’s able to keep me interested.
All in all, A Perfect Secret is a good read. The book is very well-written and the characters and situations they find themselves in very interesting.
I can’t wait to read the next book in the series now.
If you enjoy a good, clean historical romance, you should give this series a try!
