Coming face-to-face with the scoundrel who broke her heart on the eve of her wedding to another man could not be more awkward or ill-timed for Lady Sally Ford. When she accepted London’s most eligible earl, she hoped her heart had healed enough to learn to love him after they tied the knot. Her betrothed has no idea she was once engaged to an ambitious sea captain who betrayed her, and Sally has never forgotten or forgiven Captain Hastings for leaving her behind as he made his fortune at sea.
When Felix answered the urgent summons from his superior, he never expected to face his angry first and only love about to marry an earl or to discover he has the support of her family to get in her way. With no expectation of winning her back, Felix finally has a chance to clear the air about the past. But with every argument and stolen moment, their former passion reignites as if it had never waned. Is there a chance to begin again and forgive each other when they must part any day?

Fantastic start to new series!
Ohhhh! Such a wonderful start to a new series. Will leave you wanting more. The story starts with Lady Sally Ford, who has decided it’s time to put the past behind her and move forward with her life, She wants marriage and children and Lord Elliott fits her requirements. Hopefully in time she will learn to love him.
Captain Felix Hastings has for six long years, kept his promise, well mostly,to stay away from any Ford. Not easily done when in the Navy and so are several Ford’s. So receiving orders to appear at his Admiral’s home immediately, who happens to be the father of his one and only true love was baffling. Why after all these years after his broken engagement with Sally, has the Admiral requested his appearance?
Not all appears as one would expect. Sally is confused with her feelings for Felix, Lord Elliott appears to be a fortune hunter and Felix only wants to set things right between Sally and himself. To explain the past.
A well paced story of second chances, a meddling family. A bit steamy, but not over done. A real page turner that will keep you in thralled till the end.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
The Wedding Affair
The story was well written and moved along nicely! There was enough passion to make it enjoyable! However, I am not one for “too much” in the bedroom details, and though this book had some, it wasn’t overwhelming to the point that I had to leave the book.
