Looks can be deceiving, the same is true for reputations
As the head of his family, Robert Beckford, the Earl of Masten, was accustomed to dealing with various problems his siblings had caused of one sort or another. However he wasn’t prepared when his cad of brother ruined and then abandoned a young lady. To right the wrong, Robert married the girl himself; but his chivalry only went so far. He didn’t want a wife, and most certainly not a scandalous one. So after repeating his vows, he sent her packing, off to a secluded estate and expected her to stay put.
After years of mistreatment at the hands of her family, Lydia was prepared to be an accommodating wife; but her rigid and unforgiving husband asked too much of her. After languishing for years in her opulent prison, Lydia leaves her country estate for the glamour and excitement of London—and unfortunately her husband’s path.

Fee Regency iBook.
Just too boring. I couldn't be bothered finishing it.
Sweet Lydia was foolishly seduced when she was 16, and when Luke, the rake ran off, his older brother Robert married her to save her from ruin. (Unlikely storyline, especially since he is an Earl). Anyway for 5 years Lydia stayed in one of his country houses, and when she came to London, Robert was surprised and angered to be attracted to her. They fall in love then Luke wants to ruin it.
A beautiful story that kept me excited to return to reading it. A beautiful connection between Robert and Lydia. A must read! My heart is full after finishing this book.
Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Can't wait to read the next one. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys historical romance with a good storyline.
