The 2nd book in the series Regency Brides, we find ourselves looking into the life of Lady Charlotte Featherington. As a brand new debutante and as the beautiful daughter of a marquess, she is destined for great things on the marriage market. She should have her pick of the eligible nobility when she debuts. Having love at the top of her list of marriageable attributes; her romantic heart falls hard for one particularly dashing, attentive suitor. Her father intends her betrothed to be someone that she thinks is dull, and is less handsome.
William Hartwell may be a duke, but he knows he was Charlotte's father's pick, not the young lady's own choice. And the captivating Lady Charlotte does not strike him as a woman who will be wooed by his wealth or title. While she has captured his heart, he has no idea how to win hers in return--and the betrayal and scandal his first wife put him through makes it difficult for him to believe that love can ever be trusted. His only hope is that Charlotte's sense of responsibility will win out over her romantic notions.
Can a widowed duke and a romantically inclined lady negotiate a future and discover love beyond duty? Will they be able to find healing and hope from the legacy of grace? Will Charlotte learn the true meaning of love?
This is a wonderful story for those who love historical fiction, full of mystery and romance.
