Regency Holiday Romance

This story started out dark with a suicide and a mystery. Hannah was bright and full of hope with a crush on her brother Nathaniel’s friend Gideon and looking forward to going to London for her first season. I was surprised she would go so close to Christmas as the traditional London season is usually in the spring. She finds herself attracted to Nathaniel’s friend Nicholas, but it’s hard to get past her childhood crush. Also darkness surrounds Nicholas after what happened to his wife. I liked his sister Mattie and hope she has her own romance in a future book. I loved that both Hannah and Mattie loved to read as I do too. This was a funny, suspenseful, romantic Regency holiday romance.

Earl of Darby

Love the chemistry between them. They are star crossed lovers who are on destiny’s path. The twists and turns of the evil surrounding him keep the story unprintable. A book worth reading April H in Jacksonville FL

Unexpected love

The story is well written, entertaining and holds your attention. Darby learned on his wedding night that his new wife was not a virgin, had bern raped by a member of society and was pregnant. He left and later returned to find his wife Alice had hanged herself and left a letter of apology and named the man who had raped her. Five years later Nicholas is still trying to find evidence against the now Duke of Colvin in order to bring him to justice. This is where he meets Hannah and things start to change for him. He still seeks justice but also falls in love. There is a HEA but a lot happens first, among this Hannah being terrorized by the Duke. This is a great love story and i would recommend it as a great read.
