Publisher's Summary

First in a new Regency romance series featuring noble gentlemen and the ladies who help them love again. 

Widower Benjamin Romilly, earl of Furness, lives a melancholy life. The loss of his wife in childbirth four years before has robbed him of all happiness. He can barely look at his son, who resembles his mother so strongly and is a constant reminder of her loss. 

But Jean Saunders, a relative of Benjamin's late wife, erupts into the grief-stricken household to restore order and take Benjamin's son away. From all Jean has heard, she assumes he won't care - but she doesn't know how wrong she is. 

As they come together to raise Geoffrey right, their budding attraction is undeniable. And when a nosy neighbor gets in their way, Jean has to face her darkest fears before all is made right.

Fantastic story and narration

I can't say enough about Rosalyn Landor. I even mention her in reviews where she is not the narrator. This is another great performance. She does so much with the voice of the little boy, that I can feel everything he is going through just by the way that RL changes the tone .
The story is great and shows how 2 mature adults with communication and patience can come together. I believed that this was about learning to love someone, and not just 2 beautiful people lusting after each other. It has compassion and understanding on the part of all the characters. The reader can tell that all of them are coming together to become a family ...very touching and powerful.

the brat

If my 5 year old behaved as Jeffery in this story he would not be able to sit down for a month.
