Like all the Bedwyn men, Aidan has a reputation for cool arrogance. But this proud nobleman also possesses a loyal, passionate heart - and it is this fierce loyalty that has brought Colonel Lord Aidan to Ringwood Manor to honor a dying soldier's request. Having promised to comfort and protect the man's sister, Aidan never expected to find a headstrong, fiercely independent woman who wants no part of his protection, nor did he expect the feelings this beguiling creature would ignite in his guarded heart.

On April 14, 1865 John Wilkes Booth changed the world with a single bullet. The assassination of Abraham Lincoln had many repercussions and for Henry Rathbone they were profound. Henry was the only man to confront Booth and attempt to apprehend the assassin. Henry was also the man that let Booth escape. While Henry wasn't officially blamed for allowing John Wilkes Booth to kill Abraham Lincoln, he blamed himself.

Would you listen to Worst Seat in the House again? Why?

yes, because it gave an entirely new perspective to Lincoln's assassination.

What did you like best about this story?

It wasn't the same old story re-told. It gave a perspective from inside the theater box and how it affected those closest to Lincoln that night.

Which scene was your favorite?

Getting to know Henry.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes. It gave me food for thought and taught new lessons we can learn from Lincoln's Assassination especially about PTSD and how science has evolved since the Civil War
