Lady Charlotte Featherington wishes to marry for love.  Her father wants her to marry a widowed duke, not the man she thinks she loves. 

The widowed ninth Duke of Hartington is still hurting from his first marriage, which ended in scandal.  He doesn’t know if he can trust the young lady in their arranged marriage.  He feels as if he will never be able to trust her and any relationships she may have with other men.

These two will have to learn to trust each other.  If they don’t her mother and others will tear apart their relationship forever.

About the Author-

Carolyn Miller currently lives in Australia with her husband and children and has long enjoyed Regency Romance.  She is a member of the Australian Christian Writers and the American Christian Fiction Writers.  Her website is www.carolynmillerauthor.com

My thoughts-

Many stories have characters we love because they are so sweet like Lavinia and Charlotte.  There are also those characters who we love to dislike, because of their actions and attitudes.  This book had Charlotte’s mother and William’s sister.  William’s sister was simply trying to protect her brother and Charlotte’s mother was everything society expected her to be.  She reminded me of Mrs. Oleson from Little House on the Prairie

I was impressed how Carolyn Miller wrote those characters and all the rest of the characters.  She made the Duke, William, a person who didn’t go with what society expected.  He took an active interest in his lands and the improvements that needed to be made.  Charlotte and Lavinia were also memorable characters, because of the way they cared about others and pulled on their faith in God when trouble came.

This was a great book in the series.  I always enjoy reading a romance novel that also draws on the strength of God.  I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series, The Dishonorable Miss DeLancey

I recommend it!
