Vivian, Countess of Beresford has been emotionally damaged by her marriage. After her husband's death she is finally free to live. Invited to London for the Little Season by her cousin Clara, Vivian meets the dashing Rupert, Earl of Stanstead. Rupert wants to find his true love and was pursuing a young lady when the lady's father told him he was too young. Hurt, Rupert wants to give up on love until he meets Vivian.
This book is going on my "to read again" shelf! Rupert is such a wonderful hero. He is so patient with Vivian who goes through a majority of the novel thinking she is deformed thanks to her jerk of a dead husband. The sub-plot of Nick and Silvia's romance just added to the novel. I wish they had gotten their own book. But, it was nice to have a character that I thought was going to be a villain be a good guy. The characters from previous novels are woven in so seamlessly. I truly enjoyed reading this novel and didn't want it to end.
I received this ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
