Need I say, not all is as it seems to be and that is where we get on the road to heartache in spades.
They both felt a connection almost immediately but life got in their ways and 5 years pass. I was disappointed the h didn't ask the H why he married so quickly. The choices these two made put them on the road to a sad and bumpy HEA.
There is a nasty villain, and he is such a mean spirited person. There is 1 lightly described foreplay and lovemaking within marriage rated 2 out of 5 heat level.
There is cheating, but not by our H/h and described after the fact, no cliffhanger, interesting secondary character's that I can't wait for their story to be told. Very little on romance though, so if your looking for sunshine and roses on their way to HEA, you will not get it.
We have deaths that will shake the lives of our couple. I do recommend this story and enjoy this writer's style. This has more sorrow, than I am use to from this author. Be prepared to use a lot of your emotions. I also, enjoyed that the secret made for an interesting journey.
I can't improve on the blurb, so will let it speak for what you will get out of this story. (ljb)
For those interested: Explicit sex does not occur until approximately 90% and it occurs after marriage.
When the time has come for Lady Catherine Crawford to enjoy her first Season, she really wants to find a man who will declare his love, not just give her a title and the status that comes with it. Even though she has received several offers of marriage, none of the gentlemen have her desiring them in any way. At the latest ball, a man named Jeremy St. Clair is in attendance, and there is an immediate connection between them. Though plans are made to visit with one another the next day, circumstances keep the two apart and years pass by. When Catherine and Jeremy see each other again, they both need to marry, but now a terrible fact has been revealed which may still keep them from ever being together.
From the instant I met Catherine and Jeremy, I knew they were going to be special people, and their love story is one that I will long remember. While looks may have first drawn them together, it is their personalities which captured their hearts and my own. I found Jeremy to be not only caring but also intelligent. He is responsible when it comes to family, too. Catherine proves her devotion to others when the need arises, and I admired her for being so unselfish.
Any details in the story seem very accurate, while individuals come across as believable and their behavior is definitely distinctive. There are so many wonderful secondary characters, and two of them get their own book next. I cannot wait, especially after reading the excerpt at the end of this installment.

A great debut into this time period for Aston and a wonderfully compelling start to what seems to be a well thoughtout and emotionally ensnaring series that holds no punches as it unashamedly pulls at your heart strings and melts your heart in equal measure.
However, plans don't work out. Jeremy gets home, only to see his father collapse on his return from an evening out, while Catherine's family are involved in a carriage accident on their way home.
Jeremy's marriage to a young, shy, wealthy woman, Mary, who gave until a daughter. Catherine cares for her badly injured father for several years. Add a nasty, unpleasant cousin with his own agenda and powerful friends who help bring the couple together, inspite of threats before all ends well.
This well written book contains tragedy, bravery, heartbreak, kindness, and more. Best of all I liked the characters (and boo, hiss to the hateful ones).
