While waiting for death to overtake him, Lord Henry Langdon hides in a London stable and is discovered by a young lady named Lady Elisabeth Stockwell. Elisabeth insists on nursing Henry back to health, when all he wants to do is die. Jilted as a young man, Henry has sworn off of love and has devoted himself to debauchery and one too many duels, from which is gained his current injuries. All he wants is to be left alone, but Elisabeth has different ideas.
As he regains his strength and will to live, he is surprised to learn that Elisabeth’s tender touch brings back his sense that maybe he can love again, but only with this lovely, passionate lady. But can he change his ways and be reformed? Does he have enough inner strength to do it? For him? For her?
Leanne Shawler is fairly new to the romance scene, but she has definitely left he mark with readers. Passion reigns in Ms. Shawler’s books. The men are strong, yet sensitive and the women are headstrong, yet very feminine when they need to be. Henry and Elisabeth are definitely two people you would never think of as a couple. But their romance grows on you and you can then see how truly perfect for each other they really are.
A great read!
