At Bradwell, the Cherrill family estate, Lord Douglas stumbles upon a young woman banished to the country for birthing an illegitimate child.
Lady Phoebe de Moncy, the beautiful daughter of the Earl of Rudham, was once a debutante with a bright future until she placed her heart in the wrong man's hands. Now, she knows time with baby Ellen is running out. Soon, the child will be taken for adoption, and she must return to London society. Phoebe longs for a quiet, independent life with her daughter and a warm friendship with the fun-loving, neighboring lord, but—for a woman with a tarnished past—what hope is there?
Can the second son of the illustrious Cherrill family risk his reputation to marry the woman he loves, or will Doug, Phoebe, and her precious baby girl be parted forever?

Sweet and good
Phoebe and Doug has a sweet courtship even though their circumstances were different and a tad bit difficult. Their journey to their HEA was sweet and humble in a time of adversity. Good read

Sweet love story
This is a well written love story that revolves around Douglas and Phoebe. Phoebe is sent away from society to deliver a child out of wedlock. The father refused to acknowledge the child was his and Phoebe’s parents removed her in order to prevent a scandal. She delivers a healthy baby girl, Ellen, except she is born with a cleft palate. While in seclusion she meets Douglas, who’s brother is a Duke, and they both discover love. This is a sweet romance that can be appreciated for its portrayal of both Phoebe and Douglas. It is a great story and I would recommend it.
