HEIR TO A DUKE, A DEBUTANTE AND AN ARRANGED MARRIAGE
It couldn't have been any more perfect...
Miss Louella Rose is Sweet, Beautiful. Refined. The answer to all her family's woes. But beneath her flawless complexion, behind her mesmerizing eyes, she hides a secret shame.
The Marquess of Stanton promised to marry the woman of his father's choice by the age of thirty and that time has finally come. To his surprise and delight, the chosen lady is the perfect debutante, for him anyhow, and he couldn't be happier... until he discovers the scars that make no sense – scars that shatter the illusion of perfection.
LIES, greed and blood lay waste to a most promising marriage. Can their love overcome the ravages of guilt and carry them through life's imperfections?
This book was written so beautifully. This addiction was represented amazingly, and accurately! Although it did lack a tad bit of storyline, beyond just the two main characters. Could’ve used a few other characters, and possibly one more problem solution scenario. Although, definitely worth a read.
An intense topic brought to light and handled with care.
3 1/2 stars
Interesting exploration of the psychology of the main characters
