Even rules of society can’t rein in forbidden love.
Lady Serena would rather ride horses than dance in the ballroom. And no one matches her passion for horses and makes her feel more alive than her father’s groom, Sebastian Bromley. As the daughter of a duke, however, she knows she may never act on her feelings or risk a scandal.
Sebastian Bromley has a job that many in the working class would envy—as groom in the Duke of Delaval’s horse stables. But Sebastian aspires to go to America where he can create a name and wealth for himself using his horse acumen. Until then, he must hide his love for Lady Serena, the beautiful daughter of the house.
Even as Lady Serena and Sebastian fulfill their duties, a winter stranding pushes their mutual feelings to the surface. When their hearts yearn for what society forbids, choosing love means risking it all.
This is a new to me author. I enjoyed this story as it was going along but really felt dissatisfied with the ending. It felt abrupt. I wanted to know what came next. Serena’s father probably responded how one of his station would in that time period but I hoped for a softening and resolve even if it was in an epilogue so many years later. Also, I wanted him to see what a louse his son was. It might have felt abrupt because I wasn’t fully convinced of a happily ever after. Serena would have a very difficult life ahead of her and I hadn’t really been convinced that she could handle it. Would she be miserable if she followed her heart? I wasn’t sure. The book about her daughter may give some of those answers maybe.
