Caroline Torrington is not your typical blonde, tall and perky heroine. She is a woman like us average looking for the right man to love her with all his heart. The thing is that no one pays attention to her except one man, her best friend, Lord Foxhaven or Lucas to her. As children they were best friends and Caroline will do anything for him even be married to him. It was the only chance for her to feel wanted and experience a marriage, something everybody tells her will never happen for her. Lucas is a man who she always fantasized about, but was afraid of pursuing because of rejection. Once she says yes can she just pretend to be as friends and not regret the choice she made?
Lucas, Lord Foxhaven has always loved Caroline but only as a friend nothing more. He knows that he can count on her for anything he asks of her. Once they are married Lucas is having a hard time dealing with just a marriage in name only. For once in his life he wants to look perfect and great in someone’s eyes, especially to Caroline. Her belief in him means a lot and Lucas is determined to not fail her in any way. One thing he knows for sure is that he doesn’t just want a marriage in name only but one with love. Can they both get past their regrets to make this marriage of convenience bloom?
As a reader of historical romance I find it hard to give an author a 5, yet some authors get past me and make me believe in them. Michele Ann Young did this for me with No Regrets. I loved that she didn’t go with the usual heroine but created one who had faults and doubts about her beauty. Most of all is that she is not rail thin or with perfect vision. No, Caroline is your slightly overweight heroine who just wants what any good marriage should have and that is love. She is loyal to her friends and has vulnerability in her that only Lucas can help her with. These two characters were great to read and though in the beginning I was skeptical about Lucas he shined towards her. Not only are the main characters great, but also the secondary characters were wonderful to read. What I liked most was that love does prevail above everything, making you believe that it still exists whether your thin, beautiful or even an average spirited person. Great job to Michele Young and can’t wait for more of your novels.
