How do you rebuild your life when your one true love is the one who ruins it? Joanna Sherwood, the Countess of Carew, has always been wildly in love with Adrian Delacourt, the darkly handsome and devastatingly charming Duke of Roxbury. When they wed, it was her dream come true - a dream that quickly turned to a nightmare as her husband accused her of infidelity and sullied her good name in Regency society. It was only a desperate flight to Italy with her husband's best friend at her side and his promise to rescue her through a new marriage that saved her sanity.
Years later, after being left a widow, Joanna returns to the only other home she has ever known in England, only to find that nothing has changed. Her name and reputation are burdened by scandal, while her heart is burdened with the passion of an impossible love for her ex. Will her redemption be her saving grace, or her undoing?

This is my first book by Anita Mills and I am completely taken by her style of writing. There was only one sex scene in this book and even that was so quick I doubted if it actually happened. BUT it is not anything I missed really. The story expresses so much emotion already that I, as the reader, felt one with the characters and without knowing it. You can get swept away into this wonderful romance and open doors into another world and time. I truly enjoyed this book. A must have.
