From nationally bestselling author Kristina Cook comes an award-winning historical romance set in Regency England--first time in digital!
All Lucy Abbington wants is to get through her first London season without losing sight of her true ambition—gaining some informal training in veterinary arts so that she can retire peacefully to the countryside with her beloved horses. Instead, she’s caught up in a whirlwind of balls, marriage proposals, and ton intrigues. Worse, she finds herself irresistibly drawn to her sponsors’ maddening neighbor, Henry Ashton, the Marquess of Mandeville. The handsome, arrogant, sometimes infuriating Mandeville stokes a passionate fire within her that won’t be denied, no matter the consequence.
Deep, emotional scars secretly plague Henry, Lord Mandeville. As a result, he’s avoided romantic entanglements at all costs. Only, now he needs a wife—someone from a wealthy, powerful family to further his political aspirations. Instead, he finds himself all but obsessed with the beautiful but unconventional Lucy Abbington—a woman whose passions and wit stir desires he’d rather ignore. And yet…she might just be the one woman who can heal his wounded heart.
Lucy and Henry’s heads say no, but their hearts say yes. Will they find themselves undone by love?

Really loved the characters and the storyline.
I loved this book & highly recommend it. The emotions experienced by Lucy & Henry were deep & moving. They were both strong characters, showing how life's experiences form who we become. Read it & enjoy.
This was a Great book. I started it several days ago and have not been able to put it down. It had all of the magic of a Historical love Story, just enough intrigue and societal bashing to bring out mixed emotions of the unfairness that has historically been the stereoypes often exhibited about women in the professions. Great read!
