The Duke of Exeter may have failed to marry, but he’s determined to find a bride for the cousin who will unwillingly inherit Sinclair’s title and his overwhelming responsibilities when he dies. With a pinch of artful planning, a hint of competition, and a healthy dose of romance, he’s sure that he’ll get his heir wed in no time at all. What he never expected was that his disagreement with an old friend would herald the return of the lady he lost long ago—and that her return to society could upset his budding matchmaking scheme.
Lady Catherine Forbes, Kitty to dear friends, is astonished that her brother’s disagreement with the powerful duke has gone so far and has had no choice but to return to London to take her stubborn family in hand. Meeting the duke again was no doubt inevitable, but being drawn to him so strongly is something that takes her by complete surprise. They were never meant to be, but old habits are hard to break. Are they too set in their ways to risk their hearts or will the needs of others separate them a second time?

Delightful Well Written
Heather Boyd has a wonderful writing style that really captures the readers imagination. This is actually my first book by this author and I am so glad that I found her. I love the fact that the hero and heroine were older, and much more mature. Their second chance story as well written and delightful.
I found the characters to be quite wonderful, good and kind people. Kitty and Sinclair are complex characters who had been in love 30 years ago but were separated by misunderstandings and an unscrupulous person. The secondary characters were quite charming, Kitty’s brother Percy, her niece, her friend Willa and Teddy, Sinclair’s heir presumptive, adding to the story.
The dialogue is well done with lots of humor and wit. The story flowed smoothly and was well written. There’s intrigue and a bit of mystery in this engaging story. I think the author did a wonderful job of showing the characters as befitting their age and maturity. It was clear to both Kitty and Sinclair, once they saw each other again that the love they shared was still there. This is a beautiful romance and love story is was a joy to read.
Thank you so much Heather for this Beautiful story of love and romance. I absolutely loved Teddy and look forward to his story.
