Lord Fenton is a gambler and a dandy, and he will be stripped of his wealth and position unless he rises to his responsibility—one of which is to marry. Far from being a giddy groom, Fenton chooses the unobjectionable Alice Stanbridge simply because he had known her as a young girl and his mother feels Alice would make a good wife.

Alice, however, has harbored feelings for Fenton since their first meeting years ago, and his proposal is a dream come true. Not only would a match with the most-eligible bachelor in London secure her future, but it will also give her a place of distinction and admiration. Had anyone admired Alice for anything before now?

When Alice learns that she is not only an unwanted wife, but a demanded one, however, she closes her heart. Only when Lord Fenton faces the greatest trial of his life does he begin to find love beyond the folly. Could a great love come from a beginning such as this?

  1. As the story begins, I get a sense of who Lord Fenton is. But he is oh so much more.

    I am pleasantly surprised by this story. I love Regency books and some have a formula. This one didn’t follow that formula for me and kept me guessing as to how it would resolve.

    I have loved how both of this author’s regency romances have so much more depth and meaning than I typically find in the genre. I have read her books in all the genres she has written and she does so well in all of them and brings emotion and meaning into all the stories. This love story felt very original and fresh to me- not a storyline that has been done time and time again. It had really interesting and imperfect characters that I enjoyed watching grow and develop and lots of interesting plot developments. It was really hard to put down and I really enjoyed reading it. I will continue to read everything that Josi Kilpack writes!

    Another Regency story that I loved! This story focuses on a character (Lord Fenton) introduced briefly in “A Heart Revealed.” I was a little put off by some of his behavior early in the book, but that was part of his story and how he had changed by the end. Both main characters had some flaws to overcome and I loved watching them grow closer together. Wonderful!

  4. For a book with a dandy for the hero, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it! The backstory to Alice and Lord Fenton’s connection is seriously sweet, but their reunion leaves much to be desired… Their struggles with each other, family, and society are so real and because we learn the motivations behind their choices, it’s easier to understand their characters. The way Alice and Fenton finally bond and let go of antagonizing each other is worth the wait. Their romance is then allowed to flourish amid personal tribulation and surprising revelations. I don’t want to give anything away! Really, what made this story come alive for me is how the mannerisms, strength, and compassion of both Alice and Fenton is shown through their actions rather than described in the narrative. Moments of humor and heart touching scenes round out the balance for a highly recommended read!
