Elinor Abbott was only 14 years old when she and her father left England for America. Six years later, with war at their doorstep, she is forced to return to her land of birth and a life amongst the aristocracy she abhors. A return to England also means facing the man who brutally attacked her as an adolescent.
Viscount Easton came to the United States at the behest of His Majesty's Army for his last assignment. He was sent home early due to an injury and must face his new destiny as the heir to an earldom. An unexpected encounter with the unrefined beauty links Easton and Elinor together in society, and he must decide whether to save Elinor's reputation or hold on to bachelorhood.
Can Elinor navigate the perils of coming out in aristocratic England and still retain her sense of identity? Can Easton help her overcome her aversion to men, or will her past keep her from facing her future?

I enjoyed Adam and Eleanor's story. Eleanor's life abruptly changed as she is sent from her home in America to England, the place she had left many years ago. Hating society rules and a deeper secret has her trapped in an engagement under false pretenses. But when the truth comes to light, true love prevails and she surrenders the past to get her HEA❤️
The narrator has a beautiful voice, I enjoyed listening to her storytelling.
