They see a brokenhearted widow.
She's far from shattered.
Lady Philippa Winston is never marrying again. After her late husband's cruelty that she kept so well hidden, she has no desire to search for love.
Years ago, Miles Brookfield, the Marquess of Guilford, made a frivolous vow he never thought would come to fruition - he promised to marry his mother's goddaughter if he was unwed by the age of 30. Now, to his dismay, he's faced with honoring that pledge. But when he encounters the beautiful and intriguing Lady Philippa, Miles knows his true path in life. It's up to him to break down every belief Philippa carries about gentlemen, proving not only that is love real but that he is the man deserving of her sheltered heart. Will Philippa let down her guard and allow Miles to woo a widow in desperate need of his love?

I had already read the book. But the audio version gave me even more appreciation. Highly recommend!
A great story of how domestic violence affects families and how they finally pull out of the cycle and find acceptance and love. Cristi Caldwell brought me to tears with this beautiful story which the marvelous Tim Campbell brought to life with wit and passion.
