Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

This is the second in Ms. Holt’s series on Jilted Brides and just as delightful as the first. I really enjoyed finding a new/old author. I had forgotten how much I liked Ms. Holt. In the second installment we get to learn more about Winifred, Winnie to her friends; the governess for the children born out of wedlock by Peyton Prescott’s brother.

Winnie ventures out to find the relatives of one of her charge

Very enjoyable

This book was very enjoyable and just as much of an emotional ride as the first book in the series. It took me some time to warm to John as I disliked how he took advantage of Winnie. Winnie was brave but so alone and my heart went out to her. John was a likeable rake despite how he took advantage of Winnie and I enjoyed watching him fall in love with her. Definitely a thumbs up for me!

Left at the alter

Three years after being jilted, Winifred has survived as a governess. Once again she's in dire straights with two children who have been her charges. Traveling to Wales she seeks shelter and aid from the uncle of one of the children. Will he or won't he help them?
You just can't wait to turn the page to read what happens next. OUTSTANDING!!!♥

Captivating!

A very well written book. A few proofing errors but otherwise one of the more interesting books I've read of late.
I like the idea of Lord of the island isolated from regency England although still affected by it.
I enjoyed the quick quips between Lord John and Winnie. Very sharp, very funny. Heartfelt moments with surprises and twists.
A cool 4 stars.
