Book Description

Reissued with original cover
Lady Lydia Landwell has given her heart to the only man she will ever love. But when Gabriel Talbot destroys that love, she vows she will never make such a mistake again -- until he returns from the Crimean War more dead than alive. In a cruel twist, Liddy realizes she's the only person who can pull him back from the grave -- even though allowing him back into her life might be the greatest mistake she could make.

Gabe and Liddy's emotion-filled journey of danger and intrigue tests their love and reveals to them the only truth they will ever need to know. That Love Is Enough.

Editorial Reviews


Laura Landon has written a very heart-warming historical.  And the secondary characters were a delight and I hope to see them get their own stories. Definitely worth the read. --THE ROMANCE STUDIO - Bec

From the Author

The image of Gabriel Talbot on the cover perfectly represents everything I "saw" in my hero: strength, courage, loss and anguish, rugged charm and quick mind. As I wrote WHEN LOVE IS ENOUGH it became clear early on that this was Gabe's story. Yet only a woman of immense heart -- a woman like Lady Lydia Landwell -- could cause a man like Gabe to experience such a depth of emotion when forced to turn from her. Gabe and Liddy are such rich characters that I could literally see them as I wrote. I trust you will experience the same as you read WHEN LOVE IS ENOUGH!

2.0 out of 5 stars Perils of Pauline over-the-top melodrama March 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I read a lot of historic romances and, hey, they are rarely subtle. But I like them. The characters and dialogue in this one, however, are wooden. The H is so noble and heroic as to be ridiculous. If this were a movie I would say it was overacted but I don't know what to call that in a novel. Tear-jerker perhaps? And, I found the brothers unpleasant. "Selling" their sister without even asking her? I found the writing so off-putting that, somewhere in the second chapter, I started skimming the story just to see what happened. Even then it seemed over the top. And, I wondered, in Britain in the 1830's (when the brothers would have been born) did peers really name their sons Austin and Harrison? I am unlikely to read this author's work again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read and better price! July 20, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I think all three books I have read by Laura Landon are as good and better than most romance novels and since I usually can read most romance novels in a day or two, paying $.99 makes reading so much less painfull. This book in particular held my interest through out and was well done even if a little contrived and very similar in plot to Ms. Landon's other two books. I am thrilled to find an author that I like and one that I can read without breaking my bank. For all romance novel readers, this is a real find.

2.0 out of 5 stars You sure that guy is the H?.... September 14, 2011
By Reader
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was not a big fan of this book. Reading some of the reviews people described the H as a self sacrificing man who put his lovers needs before his. After reading it though I cannot disagree more.

(SPOILERS) The h's father agrees to have the h marry the Marquess of Culbertson in exchange for the payment of all his debt. Because of this, the H then tells the h that he never loved her. He further twists the knife by saying that he was only interested in her if she came with a dowry and since that was no longer the case then he did not want to marry her. I guess what bothered me about this plot was that the H's immediate reaction was to walk away, not to fight for the h. He never tried to find a way for them to be together or find another way; he simply accepted the fate that had been laid out for them. I found nothing heroic about that, him nor her family that was willing to pimp the h in order to get the family debt paid. Of course, it happened all the time during this time period but I find nothing romantic about it. Later in the novel the h asks the H to runaway together and he denies her again after he has taken her virginity. I expected him to say something like, "I like you enough to take your virginity, darling, but not enough to find a way for us to be together, it was great though, thanks."

Even in the end when the H is given the means to pay the debt he was still going to let her marry the other man. That I didn't get at all. The Marquess of Culbertson to me seemed much more of the H. The Marquess is the one who makes the HEA possible by paying the h debt, defying his father and essentially choosing who he was going to marry. I want to end up with that guy, not the looser that just allows life to happen to him. Her H walked away from her way too easily, never really fought for her at all. Her H only lied to her, hurt her and pushed her away. Not my kind of H at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars A little angsty, but so much fun! June 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this and Shattered Dreams. Both stories were a bit on the angsty side but that made them a each a sweeter read. This story had enough intrigue outside of the romance to keep it from being too cookie-cutter and the clash between the lovers and their obstacles while a bit cheesy, were believable for the type of story that it is. "When Love is Enough" was a great, feel-good romance and at $.99 I was VERY happy that it was not one of those unsatisfying short stories. I look forward to reading more from Ms. Landon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice way to spend an evening April 19, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was commended by a friend & I have her to thank for a pleasant evening with a new author. The book takes place during the Crimean War. The author makes you feel the horrors of war through her well appointed characters. It is a Victorian era novel with a sweet love story with a satisfying ending. The book reminded me a bit of Danielle Steel, but with more substance.
I recommend the book.
