For six long years Thomas Moreland has dreamed of the beautiful young noblewoman who rescued him from death. While amassing his fortune in India, not a day passed he did not recall Felicity's fair loveliness, did not recall the silken tones of her sweet voice, did not desire to possess her.
Now a widow, Felicity Harrison does not recognize the handsome nabob as the young man left for dead by highwayman years earlier. Though she wants nothing more than to snub the arrogant man who promises to rescue her family from financial ruin in exchange for presenting his sister to Society, she cannot snub him. She must force herself to bear his company. But the longer she is with him, the more she has to force herself to remain true to her dead husband's memory. Why is it the humbly born Thomas Moreland possesses more nobility that any man of her class? And why is it she finds it harder and harder to mourn a dead man when Thomas's virility awakens her deepest desires?
Utterly charming without being smutty at all.55
Beautiful story!! Can’t wait to read the next one in this series!55
Stereotypes abound—the Italian dancing master who smells like garlic; physical disability used to telegraph wickedness (it doesn’t matter if wounds are self-inflicted). Both the hero and the villain engage in stalker behavior. Plot points based around the female lead character feeling ashamed acting on her sexual desire. I will not be purchasing this author’s work again.15
I thought the storyline was strong and the characters compelling. The romantic leads had strong chemistry and I also found the villain to be complex and dastardly. Definitely worth reading!45
A nice easy story. Enjoyed it very much.45
This was a great book. It was hard to put down, I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen to the nasty Colonel Gordon. It was a great ending.55
Great book to read in the evening before bed.55
