Publisher's Summary

"Matthews has a knack for creating slow-building chemistry and an intriguing plot with a social history twist." -Library Journal  

She wanted sanctuary...  

Helena Reynolds will do anything to escape her life in London, even if that means traveling to a remote cliffside estate on the North Devon coast and marrying a complete stranger. But Greyfriar's Abbey isn't the sort of refuge she imagined. And ex-army captain Justin Thornhill - though he may be tall, dark, and devastatingly handsome - is anything but a romantic hero.  

He needed redemption...  

Justin has spent the last two decades making his fortune, settling scores, and suffering a prolonged period of torture in an Indian prison. Now, he needs someone to smooth the way for him with the villagers. Someone to manage his household - and warm his bed on occasion. What he needs, in short, is a wife and a matrimonial advertisement seems the perfect way to acquire one. Their marriage was meant to be a business arrangement and nothing more. A dispassionate union free from the entanglements of love and affection. But when Helena's past threatens, will Justin's burgeoning feelings for his new bride compel him to come to her rescue? Or will dark secrets of his own force him to let her go?

Excellent story!

I love this author! She doesn't rely on gratuitous sex scenes to engage an audience. She uses her story!

engaging read

Beautiful story with very solid writing. Justine Eyre does a wonderful job narrating both male and female voices, and her voice lends just the right amount of angst to the story,

Can't wait for the next book!

Just keep writing, Mimi! Love all of your stories. And the narrator, Justin Eyre, is exceptional! She has a voice like velvet whisky and her cadence and timing are flawless.

The story was good

good story but again, the narrator, Justine Eyre sounds like she is in pain when she finishes a sentence. The book is as good as the narrator.
Sorry, that's my humble opinions.
