Her first marriage was an epic failure.
Lady Avalon Warwyck never did love her husband. Arrogant, selfish, and cruel, it’s a blessing when she’s widowed and left to raise her son all by herself. Finally, Avalon can live freely and do the work she loves: helping fallen women become businesswomen. She’s lived these past ten years with no desire to remarry―that is, until Mr. Devan Farris comes to town.
Can he convince her to take another chance at happily ever after?
Devan Farris―charming vicar, reputed rake, and the brother of Avalon’s son’s guardian―is reluctantly sent to town to keep tabs on Avalon and her son. Devan wishes he didn’t have to meddle in her affairs; he’s not one to trod on a woman’s independent nature and keen sense of convictions. But she’ll have nothing to do with vicar with a wild reputation―even though he’s never given his heart and body to another. If only he could find a way to show Avalon who he really is on the inside―a good, true soul looking for its other half. But how can prove that he wants to love and care for her. . .until death do they part?
“For those who ever felt they didn’t fit in or weren’t welcomed, but forged ahead and created their own place in the world.”
I just recently started reading historical romance books. This was the first book by this author that I’ve read. This one just did not connect with me. It was hard to stay invested in the story, some of the writing was a bit too cheesy for me, and I just never got behind the two main characters. She seems to have a very good following and ratings on her books, so I may give another one of her books a try just to see if it was just this book that did not work.
