Lady Laura Chamberlain grew up with parents who really ignored her and so when the opportunity came to escape her home she latched onto any means of escape. Her husband turned out to be a horse betting, card playing drunkard; but at least he let her lead her own life and treated her somewhat nicely. However when he ended up killing himself one evening while trying to play Tarzan on the chandelier, she is left pregnant and alone with no financial security.

A clean and predictable regency romance. Laura's father disowns her after a 'scandal' that didn't happen. Her husband is deceased after a bizarre incident at the pub.

However, when Gareth finds out that his cousin is dead and his widow is living alone, he insists that Laura come live with him and other relatives. On the trip to h...more
I have enjoyed all of Carola Dunn’s regency books I have read so far. They are a nice, quick, easy read and they have a Jane Austen feel to them. Each book is different enough from the others to feel fresh and her enjoyable writing style is consistent.
A typical old fashioned Regency Romance, written in the style of the author's other novels. She does not write bodice rippers, and you would not blush to lend this to your mother-in-law.

And by babe, we mean baby, not hot chick. Sweet story. An inexpensive ebook download.
