Regine Maberly, Duchess of Heartwaite is back in London for the first time in eight long years. She married and left with her husband to tour the continent and returned to his country estate when his health took a turn. She nursed him for a year and then entered mourning. She didn’t plan on returning to London, but when her mother passed away, she became the guardian of her youngest sister Juliet. She is passing a coffeehouse when she sees him – James Brentwood – the love of her life and the man who hates her as passionately as he once loved her.
This is a very short, very sweet second chance at love story featuring Theodosia and Jessica’s brother James, a successful solicitor, who loved Regine with all his heart, until she broke it in a million pieces by marrying the Duke of Heartwaite. This story was well written, flowed nicely and didn’t feel rushed despite being a very short novella, there are no graphic love scenes, only kisses and the author does a great job of giving the reader a good understanding of their past. I really enjoyed the story and happily recommend it, if I had any complaint, it would be that I wish it was a little bit longer! This is the sixth book in the series, but it can easily be read as a stand alone title with no issues.
