Since being widowed two years ago, Kitty Cateril has been trapped in her late husband’s home, where she is expected to mourn forever. Desperate to escape, Kitty will consider any option—even a hasty marriage to a stranger with no intention of abandoning his bachelor ways.
London life suits Beau Braydon, especially his work keeping Britain safe. So when he inherits the title of Viscount Dauntry, he has no intention of resettling on a rural estate. He can’t resist the opportunity to marry a sensible widow who can manage Beauchamp Abbey for him—until he realizes Kitty is more than he bargained for…
Before Kitty and Dauntry can adjust to each other, a threat to the royal family takes them to London. Soon someone is determined to prevent Dauntry from exposing the villain, and secrets in Kitty’s past threaten their growing love…
My Review: 5 stars
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Kitty Cateril’s and Beau Braydon’s story of finding peace and love. On a spontaneous whim to get away from her mother-in-law’s insufferable mourning, Kitty decides to re-marry…and to the new Viscount Dauntry, who happens to be a friend of her best friend. Braydon needs to marry someone who can handle Beauchamp Abbey…and the infuriating residents within.
Things don’t go smoothly for the two and but they end up developing feelings for one another…and a healthy dose of jealousy on Braydon’s part because of his wife’s Kit Kat club. Jo Beverly spins and weaves a wonderful tale of conflict, distrust, love and passion into this novel. This author has earned a very well-deserved spot on my bookshelf and a devoted fan. I recommend this book to all who love a good romance with a hint of sugar and spice!
