Lady Edith Leveson has lived her young widowhood in shadows and secrets, not even revealing the truth to family or friends. That, it seems, is no longer an option, and she must act quickly to avoid being ruined entirely and forevermore. A handsome but reserved rescuer comes to her aid just in time, and their paths begin to entwine more than either of them expected.
Graham Hastings, Lord Radcliffe, is no hero. He isn’t brave, bold, or in any way noble, yet the striking Lady Edith seems determined to paint him so. One dance with her, and he seems unable to avoid finding her in need wherever he goes. The more involved he becomes, the more his heart begins to open, and he finds himself more than willing to become a hero. Hers.
Those of us who have been reading the Spinster Chronicles series have been waiting for Lady Edith Leveson’s story. Edith had been harder to get to know in previous stories because she was such a closed book and didn’t want to talk about her past.
Graham Hastings seems pretty smitten with her right away and very protective. He is fairly introverted and Edith has a way of drawing him out.
I like the addition of Molly in this story and I like that we see a different side of Edith and Graham when they are with her.
Since there is a reappearance of a lot of characters in previous books I found myself wishing for a chart to keep track of them. I know of the main characters but there seemed to be some side characters that I was unsure of.
I’m hoping we have Charlotte’s story soon. I have been really looking forward to it.
