More About the Author
Katy makes her home with her family and a clumsy cat on a tree-lined street in the Midwest. She thinks there is nothing better than a curling up in front of the fireplace and escaping into a good book while a storm rages outside. Except maybe the beach without the storm, plenty of sun, and, of course, a good book.
Katy writes Gothic historical romances, one a winner of the Daphne du Maurier Award and another the winner of a Maggie. She also writes Western historical romances for Harlequin Historicals and writes contemporary Romantic Suspense as K.T. Madison. Basically she writes all kinds of romances. She's written for Kensington, Avon (HarperCollins), and Harlequin publishing houses and flies solo as an indie author, too. Her books have been in the Amazon top 100 many times.
Top Customer Reviews
This is a nice romance that isn't particularly overwrought with melodrama (which with plots like this one, it could've been.) It has likable, rootable leads and a fair bit of time spent on a secondary couple.
In the backstory, the heroine had once been in love with and engaged to marry a young soldier, and it was only after he had been shipped to Spain that she discovered that she was pregnant. She sent a letter telling her fiance only, as things tend to happen in romance novels, for things to go awry. Pregnant and desperate, she married someone else.
The novel begins with the widowed heroine's now five year old son aware that his mother's late husband was not his 'real' father and wishing to know who is. It was her late husband who impressed this fact on a very young child, which gives some indication as to the mindset of her older husband, who had not been amused at discovering that his wife was pregnant when he married her.
It had been an unhappy marriage, seemingly from beginning to end. However, she is now a wealthy widow in charge of her late husband's estates and businesses and is loathe to give up her independence, despite her parents -- and various fortune hunters -- wishing to see her remarry.
The hero and her son's 'real father' is now a wounded war veteran with a permanent disability recently back in London in the aftermath of the war. From his point of view, his fiance had inexplicably dumped him and married a wealthy nabob very soon after he, a second son with few prospects, had been shipped to Spain.Read more ›
