He finds unexpected assistance from tiny Lady Mary Haviland, a woman who has a predilection for befriending rakes and rogues. Because she has been told her whole life that she was ugly and useless, Mary never expects any of the men to court her, despite enjoying their flirtations. It isn’t long before she and Jack become close friends. Unfortunately he discovers just how wealthy she is and proposes, never letting her know his own financial situation. Nor does he claim to love her, not wanting to lie to her face.
Sadly the best laid plans of well-intended rakes tend to go awry, leaving Jack with his second jilting and Mary running not only from Jack, but her father’s abusive memories.
This is such an emotional tale, so much angst that it would overwhelm a story in the hands of a lesser talent. Hern weaves an intricate path from humor to angst to love and back again. I, like Mary, have a fondness for rakes and rogues who have a deeply hidden heart of slightly tarnished gold.
A secondary romance between Olivia, Mary’s companion, and Edward, Jack’s uncle (the man who taught him everything he knew about living life to the fullest) is delightful. We also catch up with Robert and Emily from the first book in the series. Melodramatic in all the best ways. 5 out of 5.
The rest of it was interesting, dramatic. These two people are dysfunctional and made a different kind of story. They both suffered but clearly the heroine was the strong one.
I didn't read the first one so I had no frame of reference. And the secondary story was lovely. It really was very sweet in the midst of this carriage wreck. Trains were not yet a thing.
Don't get me wrong, this book is great until that part. The whole time I am reading this and he is complaining about Suzanne, I kept thinking that you are doing the exact same thing to Mary and Jack never noticed it. It was hard for me to read 'An Affair of Honor' where Jack is so nice to Sedge and not think of how I felt when I read the end of this one.
I do love Mary though. It is a good read if you can get through wanting to hurt Jack at the end.
