Book 2 in the Hathaway series by Lisa Kleypas. We met Kev Merripen and Winnifried Hathaway in book 1 of this series and that book hinted at Merripen's adoration/love for Win who has been in fragile health ever since she recovered from scarlet fever.

The book begins by Kev and Win at a crossroad. Kev wants her to stay in the country; Win, determined to get better and recover her health completely, is packing to go to France to a clinic there. She tells him the only way she will stay if he finally confesses his love to her. He refuses; she declares her love for him, but in the end.... she leaves.

This book introduces another person close to the Hathaway clan- the governess, Miss Catherine Marks. Not only does the book further the story of the couple Cam and Amelia, but also gives more information on the whole Hathaway clan itself. The book also brings to conclusion the connection to Kev and Cam, both raised by gypsies and bear the same tattoo of an Irish pooka.

When Win returns to England, she isn't alone. Her doctor from France has returned with her and would like to marry her. The book follows Kev and Win as they butt heads together. He can't forget her, can't let her go, but feels he is too beneath her, that he would hurt her, that because of his cruel and hard past, he can't give her what she needs. Win wants a new start to life. She wants a family, a child, even if pregnancy ends up killing her. She wants Kev. When, during a social gathering, she and Kev are seen embracing each other, the family gathers quickly to form a plan to save Winnifred's reputation. In the end, when asked, Kev doesn't stand up and say he will do the right thing and marry her so the doctor does. Hurt and angry, Win agrees.

In the end, because of advice from Win's brother, Leo of all people, Kev decides do deal with his fear and puts a very gypsy plan in motion. Even without Kev and Cam's connection which makes a sudden appearance, Kev turns his outlook around and he and Win end up happily together.
