FIGHTING FOR LOVE AND HAPPINESS
Grace Denton found her first season boorish, her mother inattentive and feels her dream of someday becoming a wife and mother slipping away. Braiden Everett, the Duke of Donetic is now a widower, his wife Tabitha and one of her lovers had been murdered by highwaymen. Braiden is very jaded when it comes to love and marriage after Tabitha made a farce of their marriage. Grace and Braiden knew each other when she was only 15 years old, what a shock to see the beautiful young woman she is now. But he refuses to believe in love and would rather see his cousin Thomas married and provide an heir for the title. Maybe setting Thomas and Grace up would be a grand gesture, if only he wasn't so jealous seeing them together. This story comes with lies, deceit, betrayal, adultery, sabotage, crazy mothers, murder, but also love and forgiveness. Will Grace find a man who matches her in intelligence, can give her love and passion, and a child? Can Braiden put the lies and heartache behind him caused by Tabitha and move forward in his life with happiness? Or will he live in self-pity and drunkenness? Will they every find out who is behind the murders before it claims more victims? Disclosure: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
