An Unconventional Brides Regency Romance
At the age of 15, Miss Charity Chadwick is tricked into marriage. Her new husband, unhappy with their union, banishes her to his northernmost estate and promptly forgets about her existence. There, she remains for the next ten years, alone and neglected.
Julian Lyons, Viscount Wrotham happily goes about his life, confident in his title and the position it affords him in society. A decade passes seeing him act the bachelor. That is until one fateful entry in his accounts recalls his attention to the fact there is a Lady Wrotham. What he finds means she can no longer remain forgotten.
Not knowing of her husband's unannounced return, Charity doesn't recognize him. She thinks the stranger in her hall is yet another London fop come to try and entice the discarded bride out of her boredom. However, when Lord Wrotham confronts her with charges of infidelity, she doesn't deny them. She has plans to rid herself of an unwanted husband.
When these two meet again, will they be able to forgive one another's past? Will love blossom and strengthen their union? Or will they part, unwilling to recognize their heart's desire?
Hearts Desires was a fun read quirky at times.
