An epic novel filled with marvelous characters and layers of story that keep you turning the pages. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I’d read the second book in the series, “The Reluctant Duchess“, first. Loved that one too, but I wish I would have read them in order. I think I’d have enjoyed “The Reluctant Duchess” even more.
Brook Eden knew she wasn’t the daughter of Prince Louis, even if Prince Albert claimed her as his granddaughter. Her search for the truth of her birth leads her to the cold countryside of Yorkshire, England, and her father, the Earl of Whitby.
Justin Wildon has been Brook’s dearest friend since childhood when his father took up residence in Monaco. He’s also his father’s heir and the future Duke of Stafford. His world is turned upside down when his best friend rises to the level of English peerage and his father dies, thrusting him into the midst of it as well.
Things may have gone smoothly into a new relationship between them, something far closer than dearest friends, if not for the mystery that plagued Brook’s abduction as a babe. The more the dig into that mystery, the more obstacles litter their paths.
Get it. Read it. It’s that good.
