Callie Hutton once again delivers a delightful historical romance.
Lady Marion Tunstall is such a fascinating character. Having met her in a previous book I was so happy to read her story and get to dig deeper into her personality. I experienced every up and down right alongside her and I couldn’t help but hold my breath to see what was going to happening. Upon first meeting her she seems so fragile and yet it doesn’t take long for her to show just how strong and determined she is. Her stubbornness is almost ridiculous if it wasn’t so vital to helping with her happiness.
Lord Tristan could have come across as a completely heartless man. After all when we first meet him he had been presumed dead and he appears at an entertainment with another woman. But as the story unfolds and we learn more about him and his personality is revealed he is most admirable. Although, I will admit he is just as stubborn as his wife. I loved watching these two interact; they have so much love, so much passion and so much friendship between them.
Of course it was fabulous seeing Lady Marion’s family again and seeing how supportive they are. I love how realistic this aristocratic family is, how genuine their love is and how they do what’s best for one another. I cannot wait to see what the other sisters can get up to. If you are a fan of this authors, and surely if you have read any of her works you are, you will not be disappointed with this one.
Lady Marion Tunstall has spent more than two years grieving her husband whom she lost at sea but with the love and encouragement from her family she has finally re-entered society. She cannot believe her eyes, standing across the ballroom is her dead husband and she faints from the shock. With his secret revealed Lord Tristan can no longer hide and instead offers her a divorce. Lady Marion refuses even when he insisted he does not want to burden her with a less than whole husband. Can these two trust each other enough to trust in their love?
It's been two years since Lady Marion Tunstall lost her husband at sea. Two years of sorrow and grief. Only now has the young, comely widow finally re-entered society. It isn't until she and her family attend the merriment of a country dance that Lady Marion sees her dead husband, alive and well... and faints dead away.
Lord Tristan Tunstall has no choice but to confess - he is alive, yes, but not a whole man who can be a husband and father. When he offers her a divorce, however, Marion stubbornly refuses. Now she has forced herself back into his life, and into his home and (oh, God forgive his weakness) his bed. He cannot stop himself from wanting her. Loving her. But can he live with the secret she is keeping from him?
