My Secret and The Earl by Joanne Wadsworth
This is dramatic, romantic and suspenseful. Winterly is charming, chivalrous and sweet. Rosamonde is dutiful, stubborn and brave. When Richard arrives at his best friend Avery's home to find that Avery's sister is betrothed to a monster, he suddenly funds himself feeling protective and possessive of her. Both Avery and Winterly know that there was no way Rosamonde would willingly agree to marry Roth, and it takes Winterly and Avery insisting that Winterly would just kidnap her and bring her to Gretna Green to tell all. Then it's a battle of wills between Winterly and Roth. A surprise twist and shocking ending tie things up very neatly.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.
