England 1803: LADY JULIET BEAUMONT, eldest daughter to the Earl of Whickerton, has loved and lost…long ago. With her hopes dashed, she turns away from seeking a match and continues on as her grandmother’s faithful companion, grateful to find happiness in her wild, boisterous and utterly unconventional family. Yet, every once in a while, a distant part of Juliet’s soul cries out for the man she once loved, unable to even contemplate the notion of choosing another. After all, one cannot give away one’s heart if it is no longer in one’s possession, can one.

CHRISTOPHER HURST, EARL OF LOCKHART, left England years ago, turning his back not only on his family and the title that was never meant for him, but also on his dearest friend. Always has he loved Juliet, and yet it is only in the very moment that Fate forces him from these shores that he realizes he is in love with her. The realization comes far too late.

Until the Dowager Countess of Whickerton—known to those who love her as Grandma Edie—calls Christopher back to England. He doubts whether it is wise to return, afraid he will find Juliet married to another; however, no one in their right mind would ever dare refuse the dowager.

And so, Christopher does return…and the moment he finds Juliet’s bewitching green eyes look into his once more, he knows he cannot lose her a second time.

Heartbreakingly Beautiful

This is both a friends to lovers and a second chance romance - two of my favourite tropes combined. Having read all the previous books in this series, I have been looking forward to Juliet’s story as it was obvious that Grandma Edie had been deliberately keeping men from courting her for a reason. I suppose it was a little slow in the reader finding out exactly why Kit had left six years previously but the ending was truly moving and beautiful. I read the entire book in one sitting and look forward to the next book in the series.

A Gem of a Story!

I thoroughly enjoyed this tender-hearted and warm romance between Juliet, the eldest Whickerton sister who's become responsible for Grandma Edie and her younger sisters. Jules, always the demure, level-headed sister practically becomes undone when her longtime ago childhood friend Christopher (Kit) returns for her sister's wedding. But why is he there? Who even invited him? And why did he leave so abruptly years ago when tragedy struck his family? Kit has a secret that only his sister and mother know. Of course, his mother also harbors a secret. So much hidden baggage that nearly destroys relationships. What a gem of a story! So many tender, intimate and swoonworthy moments! And Grandma Edie's manipulative attempts to work things out for her family is a funny interlude! Can Jules and Kit overcome all odds of a future together? A wonderful romance!

Harry’s carefree wild spirit spoke to me

Harry’s carefree wild spirit spoke to me from the very beginning. She is drawn to all things requiring help so when she meets a stern Duke who never smiles, she cannot help be pulled to him. Watching her draw him out and his internal battle of rules and expectations is incredibly intriguing. The readers emotions are drawn in as his are. But what is a Duke to do once he fully accepts his emotions and his love for a girl who is convinced she will never marry. The tables are then turned while the Duke tries to convince her that marriage does not have to mean giving up her identity. The way they both come to truly know and understand each other is beautiful, as is their commitment not to change each other.
