Publisher Description

Lady Emily Masters has harbored a secret infatuation for the dashing Malcolm Arborn, Viscount Morley since a childhood accident claimed the life of her twin brother and left her own face scarred. But when fate brings them together again for her brother’s wedding, she is dismayed to find instead of the brave gentleman who sheltered her after the tragedy, a surly rogue quick to quip and slow to trust.

To the cosmopolitan and haughty Malcolm, few engagements could possibly be more punishing than attending his friend’s country wedding—until the groom requests he watch over his timid sister during the weeks leading up to the ceremony. Fearful of her scar making her the center of attention to the visiting lords and ladies, Emily proves to be a difficult charge for the irascible bachelor.

Her diffidence an insult to his sensibilities, he finds a new purpose within his role: to bring out the bold woman within. But how can such a gentle creature as Emily abide his own coarseness? At odds with their natures, will these two willful souls be able to look beyond their past hurt to build a promising tomorrow?

Such a sweet story! I sometimes found the heroine frustrating because of her lack of self esteem throughout much of the book but I think it was a very honest and raw exploration of the ways in which trauma and anxiety can influence a person’s view of themselves. I love how this book challenges the usual tropes of romance in a subtle way by portraying a heroine who struggles with mental health issues - quietly subversive. The characters are wonderfully developed and they really stick in your mind even when you close the book.

A Wonderful Story

A wonderful second story by Christina Britton that tugged at my heart with the story of a heroine who is scarred physically and a hero who has emotional scars deep down. Emily has lived her life away from society due to the scars on her face to avoid the censure she knows she will find. When her brother, who has almost suffocated her by his constant protection gets married, she is out away from her comfort zone. Her brother asks his friend Malcolm to watch out after. They have actually known each other since childhood and Malcolm is determined to bring Emily out of her shell!!
Can these two help each other and find that they understand the other so well that they can find a deep affection?
Watching these two come together was wonderful while seeing their personal struggles. This is my favorite trope because it is so heartwarming to have two wounded souls be redeemed and find love. Well done Christina Britton and looking forward to your next story!! I read this through NetGallery
