In the sprawling gardens of their neighboring estates, childhood friends Miles and Elise spent countless pleasant days together in the spirited adventures of youth. They were inseparable until Elise vanished without a trace. Miles searched, but Elise could not or would not be found…
After years spent laboring on the family plantation in the West Indies, Miles Linwood is shocked by the unexpected news: he has inherited his uncle’s estate and the title of Marquess of Grenton. Miles’s return to England is tarnished by only one thing—he is still haunted by Elise’s mysterious disappearance.
So when he glimpses a woman with a startling resemblance to his lost friend, he’s shaken to the core. This is no mere shadow of the past: it is truly Elise. But his dear friend has changed to the point that he questions whether it is really her, though he knows it is. Accustomed to rescuing Elise from childhood escapades, Miles takes her and those in her care back to his estate, even as he struggles to understand her fear and mistrust. As their friendship and feelings slowly blossom again, the shocking truth of their separated years is revealed, and Miles realizes more than ever that he must protect Elise.
She slipped away once, and he cannot lose her again.

AN AMAZING MUST-READ!
I love Sarah Eden’s books and this was no exception! I love the Regency setting and the wonderful characters. A sweet story about two childhood friends who have become separated and then reunited, with some bumps along the way.
Good Regency romance. Loved the element of mystery in this one, but the miscommunication and the assumptions make me crazy. I just wish the characters would talk to each other!
