the lady he longed for coverA brooding lord encounters his widowed childhood sweetheart – and they uncover a secret that could change everything…

Lord Jonathan Hartley’s first love left him a broken man. Now that Isabella is back, widowed, wounded and more lovely than ever, the last thing he wants to do is revisit the past.

But Isabella has a way of digging up all the secrets he thought he had buried. His undimmed love for the tragic heiress is only one of them.

If Jonathan wants to find happiness again, he must first conquer his demons – and then, his enemies.

Isabella, the widowed Countess of Streatham, knows she belongs in Jonathan’s arms. But she is no longer the naïve debutante who believed in true love, and marriage brought her pain she vowed never to endure again.

Jonathan abandoned her once, and if he wants her forgiveness, she will make him fight for it.

Whether she falls in love again is quite a different question.

Lady Celia Hartley has a problem. She must find a husband soon or risk being ruined forever.

Just as she is beginning to give up hope, William Marsden asks her to dance. Young, handsome, and kind, he seems to be the perfect answer to her prayers.

But before he can claim her as his own, they must deal with the consequences when the Earl of Scarcliffe discovers the true nature of his sister’s situation…

My Thoughts:

We have here a well written novella with a story as old as time.
Celia has a problem, but she has no intention of involving anyone else much less William Marsden in her dilemma. The situation was after all not of his making so how could she possibly involve him.

William upon learning the true reason for Celia’s refusal of his courtship almost immediately takes her problem as his own and offers the young woman he has admired the protection of his name.

Will this offer of marriage turn into a colossal misunderstanding?
Will these two find their happily ever after.

I gave this short read 4 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization. My only complaint is that it was maybe a bit too short. There is a mild sensual level of 2.0 of 5.0 flames with only a few heated kisses between our hero and heroine.
I received a copy of this novella via Instafreebie. This in no way affected my opinion of this tale which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
