Publisher's Summary

In only six weeks, Isla Ramsey is due to marry Henry Northrup, the sixth Earl of Sydney. But she remains haunted by memories of the dashing Hugh Courtney, the Marquess Pierce. The handsome aristocrat had hinted at forever and then tossed her aside, leaving Isla with few viable options. Now, as she awaits her new fiance's arrival from London, she rides her horse past Hugh's estate at Hazelwood every day, pining for a man who was never truly hers.    

Hugh Courtney may have left Isla's life, but he can't erase her from his thoughts. When he rescues her from a sudden snowstorm, they are forced to take shelter together at his private estate. In such close quarters there is no escaping each other. Yet no man wants a reckless wife - or a woman promised to another. As fate draws Isla further into his world, Hugh vows to keep her out of his bedchamber. However, some vows are meant to be broken...

A little disappointed

I believe this is an excellent writer and very talented narrator. However I was disappointed in the story since it kept flipping back and forth between the main female character and her homosexual fiancé. If I wanted to read about a gay man’s sexual exploits I would get a book that proclaims that is the subject. Also, not to give away the story completely—it would be very difficult to have a gay aristocrat bring his gay (farmer) boyfriend home to a noble estate without the servants knowing what is going on! Remember that at that time in history homosexuality was a hanging offense! The Aristocrat probably could escape that fate but would be ostracized. The farmer would have hanged!!! I think that was horrible and believe people should do whatever they want in private (I have many gay male friends), but frankly I don’t want to see it demonstrated in front of me or read about their love affair in graphic detail.

not what I expected

I enjoy a hero/heroine love story. This book is that every other chapter, the other is a hero/hero love story. I don't know if this would truly be acceptable then, all I read was political correctness and I ended up scrolling thru. If I want to read a man/man love story I'd buy one, the unexpected story pushed on me caused it to be a bother. I enjoyed all of the characters but it was two different books and it began to break the flow.
