At its core, the story is a love triangle with two heroes: the marquis, who plays a critical role in the heroine's life in the beginning, and the baron, who comes on the scene in the later part of the book. After reading the description, I expected the first to be something of a villain. Out of context, I found the idea of his getting his mistress pregnant and then foisting her on his friend vaguely distasteful. But, as the tale unfolded, the relationship between the heroine and the marquis was put into perspective, highlighting the reasons why they had no future together and why the baron was able to offer her the life the marquis never could.
To make this plot work, it needed a truly remarkable heroine. Had she been less deserving of respect and admiration, all the heroes' efforts would have fallen sadly flat. But, any doubts I might have had about her character were dispelled after her backstory was revealed. She made the best of the hand she was dealt and did so with as much dignity and grace as was possible under the unfortunate circumstances. And, I could not have been more pleased with the way her relationship with the baron evolved. Given it had not all been smooth sailing, their working out the difficulties had me convinced that their happy marriage would stand the test of time.
I strongly recommend this book to all Regency-era romance fans. Jude Knight has a firm grasp of the period and imbues the narrative with just the right details to create the atmosphere without inundating it with minutiae. I'm really looking forward to her future books, particularly the story in which the marquis will get to be the hero to the end.
Becky, also known as "The Rose of Frampton," poor dear, was put through so much! I literally teared up at one point in the book. Starting out as the book did was a great way to introduce characters that would play a role in the story. A man passed out in a garden house, a woman in desperate need of escape!
Her rescuer is a sensible man, though he has lived the life of a rake, he is kind. which is shocking to her. Becky has been tossed around like a possession most of her life. But Aldridge takes her and her daughter in and treats them both well. Keeping the details of their relationship away from the daughter. Aldridge's friend Hugh Overton is a rake of the first order! He has no direction since his wife and child passed and only his 2 step-daughters to worry about. Aldridge comes up with an idea that may benefit everyone. We will just have to see if the people most affected by the plan agree!
There are characters to despise in this book, and characters you feel for. A true emotional romp.I love the way Jude Knight writes. You can almost see some of the settings and room decor that is described. I also appreciated the " cleanliness" of the story. Usually, a story of a kept woman gets fairly dirty. But I was happy it did not.
I must say, the author has given us another beautiful story!
The only thing I would wish for was more of Aldridge's story!
This is not your typical Regency. I don’t like spoilers, so I won’t give any out here, but I will say I was completely torn to figure out which of the two hero’s I liked more: Aldridge, a renowned womanizer who has endearing qualities he would never admit to; or Hugh, a man with his own emotional scars that must be dealt with. And, of course, there is the heroine Becky, who is fiercely protective of her daughter and wanting a better life for her by any means possible.
I highly recommend this book and eagerly look forward to the next novel Ms. Knight has planned for her readers!
