Georgiana, Anthony and Quinn were childhood companions. Thoughtless acts, misunderstandings and time separated the trio. Georgiana hoped to hold on to what remained of her youthful dreams when she married Anthony. But it was not to be. Anthony was a changed man, and beyond her help.
As the widowed Marquess of Ellesmere, she labors to help her tenants, run the estate profitably, and maintain a low profile. Her mother-in-law schemes to remove her from the family home, and does everything in her power to make Georgiana’s life hell. When Quinn arrives home to assume his place as the new Marquis, Georgiana hopes he will approve of her efforts. She knows that she will not be able to remain at the estate. Quinn has been away a long time, and she does not know the man he has become.
Quinn is glad to be back in England. His years in the diplomatic corps were rewarding, but now it is time to make a home for himself and his daughter. It has been a year since Anthony died, and Quinn hopes that Georgiana has recovered. He is torn between wanting to see her again, and dreading the thought of witnessing her grief over a man so undeserving of her affection. Anthony managed not only to ruin his own life, but Quinn’s as well. He hopes that he can spare Georgiana more pain.
Author Sophia Nash really knows how to wring emotion from the pages of her novels. The Kiss, revisits the Widow’s Club from her last novel, and many familiar characters abound. But no matter how hard they try, those personalities cannot move the reader from the main theme – the abiding love that Georgiana has for Quinn. How these two scarred people will find each other is a journey worth discovering. From laughter to tears, readers will be rewarded with another incredible story from a talented author.
