Overview

A passionate Regency romance from award-winning author Ann Lethbridge!

"Michele Ann Young paints a beautiful story of a woman running away . . ." --Historical Fiction Online

Driven to despair by her husband's endless abuse and ridicule, Lucinda, Lady Denbigh, can endure no more. With no one to turn to, she flees London to take quiet refuge in the countryside, determined to build a new life of her own. Posing as a widow, she finds a small cottage to lease on the far reaches of a vast estate, relieved that she might finally find peace and safety--until her new landlord, the strikingly handsome and taciturn Lord Hugo Wanstead, presents an entirely different kind of threat to her composure.

Just back from the wars, Hugo is tormented by the physical and emotional scars that mark him. With his estate near financial ruin and his sleep torn by nightmares, he wishes only to be left in solitude. But when he meets the new widowed tenant on his estate, he finds her hauntingly beautiful in body and soul--and finds himself overcome by powerful sensual longing.

While the gentle Lucinda conjures up ways to draw the handsome and hurting Hugo out of his loneliness, he's intrigued by her courage and her lively mind. But just as an inevitable passion stirs between these two damaged souls, a damning secret about Lucinda's troubled past will be laid bare, and they will be forced to confront each other and a cruel foe to save their only chance at love.

This book was originally published under the author name Michele Ann Young.

I am voluntarily submitting my honest review of this novel after receiving a copy of the ebook via NetGalley. This historical romance novel features two battered hearts, seeking peace and solitude in the Kent countryside to heal, only to find that it is with each other and amongst the villagers they care about and who care about them that they will find the healing they desperately seek. The writing is crisp and keeps things moving at a brisk pace, and the plot has plenty of twists and turns to keep the novel fresh despite the theme being a favorite among writers the world over. While Lethbridge provides plenty of clues to allow the reader to envision the particular types of abuse and betrayals each of the main characters suffered, I think particularly in the case of Hugo, having a bit more background information on his marriage would help the reader understand their current relationship and how he views issues such as trust, fidelity, etc. Overall, this book was an entertaining read that fans of historical fiction will enjoy.
