This one will keep you on the edge of your seat! I couldn't put it down, waiting to see how they were going to get together . . . -- Kelly S at The Sassy Book Lover
Light fingers, fast feet, a quick wit and empathy for the downtrodden—none of these qualities will help Miss Francis ‘Flightly’ Headley fit in with Regency Society. They are perfect for a young woman helping the infamous Hestia Wright at Half Moon House, however. And they might be exactly what is needed to find Hestia’s long-lost son.
Lost is Mr. Rhys Caradec’s preferred state. An artist and a hedonist, he lives his life exactly as he wishes—unfettered and free. He has no interest in either of his warring parents, but finds himself unexpectedly fascinated with his mother’s assistant.
Each believes they can bring the other around to their way of thinking. Both recognize the rising passion between them—but they are far too different, their circumstances too convoluted, for them to ever fall in love . . .
Rhys Caradec wonders around searching for his next inspiration to sketch or paint. Never putting down roots and never forming true relationships because people always leave. He has no need to be found and will not be used as a pawn between his warring parents.
Fast on her feet and clever and smart as a whip Francis “Flighty” Headley only need direction and guidance and a purpose to truly thrive thanks to Hestia Wright she’s overcome her past.
The love for her greatest friend and champion, Hestia has Francis on the search for the one gift that could repay her debut, find Hestia’s son.
Putting on her former persona “Flighty” Francis sets out to run down Rhys and make him see that he should forgive Hestia for leaving him and see the good she does. Rhys sees only hurt in Hestia’s work and will make Francis see the truth of it. As passion flares and the lines blur each start to fall and their relationship starts to bloom into a friendship the walls start to fall and Rhys conventions start to waver. Little did Rhys know that being found by Francis would be his greatest gift if only he could except a path he never wanted.
I wish I had read the books before this one so I need to go back and read them. I’m looking forward to the next book.
Flightly’s story, at last!
I loved Flightly’s story. And it was great to find out more about Rhys’s past and his parents. Can’t wait to read the next volume of the Half Moon House series!
I adored Deb Marlowe's The Lady's Legacy! A sexy artist hero and a spunky heroine who can blend into any environment. Rhys and Francis are delightful together and the perfect match for each other. Add in a dash of intrigue and the incomparable Hestia Wright, and The Lady's Legacy is a must read for anyone who loves Regency Era romance.
