Publisher's Summary

Geoffrey Winters, Viscount Redbrooke, was not always the hard, unrelenting lord driven by propriety. After a tragic mistake, he resolved to honor his responsibility to the Redbrooke line and live a life free of scandal. Knowing his duty is to wed a proper, respectable English miss, he selects Lady Beatrice Dennington, daughter of the Duke of Somerset, who's the perfect woman for him - until he meets Miss Abigail Stone....

To distance herself from a personal scandal, Abigail Stone flees America to visit her uncle, the Duke of Somerset. She finds herself helplessly intrigued by the hard, too proper Geoffrey. With his strict appreciation for decorum and order, he's nothing like the man she's always dreamed of.

Abigail is everything Geoffrey doesn't need. She upends his carefully ordered world at every encounter. As they begin to care for one another, Abigail carefully guards the secret that resulted in her journey to England.

Only, if Geoffrey learns the truth about Abigail, he must decide which he holds most dear: his place in Society or Abigail's place in his heart.

frustrated progress

Although I liked the story, it was irritating how simple and blind the characters progressed, I understand the fear of her virtue being in question, but she was obtuse in stupid moments. And the gentlemen was just as vaguely blind and naïve

I'm reviewing to remind me I dislike this author.

i really regret buying this book centered on two regrets that were repeated over and over for nine hours. Move on!

Disappointed.

I liked it until the end. An event that occurred towards the end of the book changed my opinion Abby and I just don’t know why the author felt it necessary to add it.

A bit more angst than I prefer

I like that the jerk brother from the last book is Redeemed and explained. The mother is still a brat but that's OK. American heroine is fun.

Too much Back and Forth!!

This was a good story, with a great Narrator, but the Main characters went round and round and back and forth way too much. Will he, won’t he? Will she if he does? Why didn’t she this time? OH COME ON!!! Only negative though.

simply delightful

I had a tough time getting thru the lady book I read (not by this author). So what a delight it was to read this romantic romp. Definitely an HEA, with lovable characters. The hero and heroine were thankfully not perfect, and their feelings of guilt cause them difficulties, which they thankfully overcome. I was rather sad to see the story end. Very nice narration, as the narrator kept the different voices clear and reasonable, and did the inflections of the female voices well, even with his deep voice. The story had nice building sexual tension between the two main characters, though there is little to offend a reader if one gets offended easily by sexual innuendo, though toward the end it gets quite hot in a wonderful way. I wouldn't mind seeing stories about the auxiliary characters too.

Frustrating and Predictable

I struggled to finish, I hate books are based on the premise of "I shouldn't do this, but I will do it anyway". So story line is stretched beyond belief. It should have been based in America, as all the rules of English society were ignored. Truly tedious, not worth buying.
