Romantic Times Award Winner for
Best British-Set Historical Romance
Driven to undo the evil wrought by her dead husband, Millicent Wentworth must find a way to save her estate and free the innocent people he enslaves. Her only hope is a marriage—in name only—to the notorious widower, the Earl of Aytoun.
Devastated by the tragic accident that killed his wife and left him gravely wounded, Lyon Pennington, fourth Earl of Aytoun, is tormented by the accusations that blame him for the catastrophe. Filled with despair, he lets his mother lure him into a marriage of convenience—for the sake of a good-hearted woman on the verge of financial ruin.
Under Millicent’s gentle gaze, Lyon begins to regain his strength and his wounded heart begins to heal. And soon Millicent discovers that beneath his unruly beard and grim demeanor, Lyon just may be the most handsome—and caring—man she’s ever encountered. For the first time in her life, she realizes that she is alive—alive with a smoldering desire for the one man she’ll love forever…

Some beautiful tender moments and a strong storyline. Loved the characters and can’t wait to read the next story!
I really enjoyed this book. It is a nice long read, with character development and well thought out plot. Many books of this genre are short, skip straight to intimacies and, my biggest pet peeve, have the major conflict be something easily remedied by communication but the characters are too stubborn to see it. Millicent & Lyon are well rounded adults who communicate and a good match for each other.
They are also of progressive ideals and treat their staff quite well and don’t do so in a way that is cheaply written. I enjoyed seeing the interactions of the characters.
Definitely recommend reading.
I love to read and have read a lot of books. I really enjoyed this one. The book has a good flow to it. The characters are interesting. Best of all, it didn’t have one of those scenes where the couple break up over some stupid misunderstanding. I recommend this book to anyone looking for romance.
