Miss Abigail Nash is no stranger to loneliness. Her mother died giving birth to her, her father’s business dealings took him away more often than not, and her ailing great-aunt, unable to provide much in the way of companionship, was a lack-luster guardian at best. When her dear friends offer to launch her into London society, her life takes a turn for the better.

An instant success, with suitors, social engagements, and offers aplenty, it seems Abby will at last settle into the life of her dreams. But appearances aren’t always what they seem, and dreams often become disappointments.

Just months into her marriage with a proclaimed darling of the ton, Abby finds herself widowed, penniless, and increasing. Even more precarious are the feelings she’s developing for a man she shouldn’t love, a man the law prohibits her from marrying—her late husband’s brother, the Marquess of Brigston.

    I was tickled to win this book in a giveaway since I’d been wanting to read it. I enjoyed the story though some of the writing didn’t feel completely Regency era. I just decided not to care and enjoy the story anyway. I liked Abby and Morgan. Abby was honest where she could have withheld the truth and though Morgan was angry he actually listened to the whole story before casting final judgement. And he judged well. Morgan’s mother struggled more but in the end I loved her support for both Morgan and Abby. Morgan and Abby had some fun banter scenes that were enjoyable to read. I like Regency books with strong females that are willing to step out of the expected norms of society and Abby was definitely that.

    I went through most most of the book trying to figure out how this story could possibly have a happy ending come about. It seemed a hopeless lot. I’d only thought of one way to resolve it but it would have taken years to come about, if at all and it just didn’t seem like it could be the path the story would take. So the final resolve was a surprise to me and a relief.

    There is no written sex in the book but the story begins after rape has taken place. The readers learn of it and the devastation in the aftermath but the act is not detailed in the book.

    I would have liked to see how the ton reacted to how the story played out but the book ended before that. Perhaps we’ll get an idea of it in the next book even though it isn’t about Morgan and Abby.

    Sex: some kisses, one brief scene of disgusting creep with roaming hands
    Language: no
    Violence: violent acts against women not detailed in book, one woman thrown to the floor by creep.
