Sophie, the Duchess of Calton, has finally moved on. After seven years mourning the loss of her husband, Garrett, at Waterloo, she has married his cousin and heir, Tristan. Sophie gives herself to him body and soul. . . until the day Garrett returns from the Continent, demanding his title, his lands-and his wife.
TORN BETWEEN TWO HUSBANDS . . .
Now Sophie must choose between her first love and her new love, knowing that no matter what, her choice will destroy one of the men she adores. Will it be Garrett, her childhood sweetheart, whose loss nearly destroyed her once already? Or will it be Tristan, beloved friend turned lover, who supported her through the last, dark years and introduced her to a passion she had never known? As her two husbands battle for her heart, Sophie finds herself immersed in a dangerous game-where the stakes are not only love . . . but life and death.
A HINT OF WICKED
Two devastatingly handsome gentlemen vie for the love of the beautiful Sophie, duchess of Calton, in this debut historical romance, which delivers almost too thoroughly on its heart-tearing premise. Garrett, duke of Calton, returns to England barely recovered from amnesia following the battle of Waterloo and finds that after thinking him dead for eight years, Sophie has married his cousin and best friend, Tristan, now duke in his place. Sophie is torn between her sensual attraction to Tristan and her childhood love for and legal bond to Garrett, while the rivalry wrecks the men's lifelong friendship and pulls Sophie's two young children between their warring fathers. Haymore portrays the three so intensely and sympathetically that by the end, all of Sophie's possible choices seem guaranteed to bring misery to the lovers, leaving readers distressed and unsatisfied.
Too much betrayal
Why bring Garrett back!!! And to the see is wife like that as the first reunion!!! It was obvious from the beginning that she wouldn’t choose Garrett. I hated that Garrett got messed over. I am upset on his behalf!! He was a victim from being hurt in war betrayed by everyone even the people he loved most. Then to have to give up his daughter too much. Could’ve let him keep his daughter... they deserved some pain. It’s Stretching it to think he would just be cool with everything. II don’t believe she really loved him know there would be a Sequel. But too unrealistically think they would just go back too being such good friends. Even the sister he is searching for, risking his life for didn’t show him any love or compassion.
A hint of wicked
An emotional, unique story line. Very different from your usual regency romance
This book was beautiful. True love always prevails =)...wish there was a second one!!
