Lady Cecilia was a wealthy widow who had a terrible marriage, but now she seems the focus of a lot of people due to her money. Who to trust? Then it seems fate steps in (or is it?) in the form of Robert, the Duke of Solworth, who has just returned from Egypt.
He is the father of her dear friend Lanora and very handsome and self assured. I want to tell you the entire story because I truly enjoyed it so much! My heart went out to Cecilia for what she had been through with her degenerate husband and also to Robert who still had his deceased wife pulling at his heart.
These two needed each other but would it happen? Could Cecilia agree to go to Egypt with him and keep her heart safe?
Do not miss this story and I cannot wait for more!!
This was a different approach from other such Regency books and the reader is drawn in immediately to find out if everyone was going to overwhelm and take advantage of Cecilia. Just when it seems she found the right man, doubt creeps in! Grab your copy and find out if Cecilia makes the right choice and finds the happiness she deserves.
By the way, I do question the title of the book as well. The heroine is the widow of a marquess, not a duke, nor did she become widowed while married to the duke who is the hero of this book. I also thought the forms of address were strange in several cases. The duke had people call him "my lord" instead of "Your Grace"; married women were referred to as "Missus" not Mrs.
Aside from all that melodramatic hullabaloo, I did enjoy this story and the characters. Apparently, The Archaeologist’s Daughter should have been read first, but I will be reading that next, and I am actually looking forward to finding out his daughter and son-in-law's backstory. Hopefully, there won't be the melodrama that was in this one.
I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review.
The characters were a shade different than regular books written about noble people. The characters definitely were quirky, sassy, naïve, disillusioned and caring. Now if this is not an odd mixture of characteristics to find in a book and still enjoy it, what have you been reading.
Celia is a sweet, loving but seriously wronged character in this book. She believes in the goodness of people on first sight which annoys her friends. She also has a hidden spine of steel when pushed.
Enter the Duke of Solworth, he is only back in England to see the birth of his first grandchild. Little did he know that setting certain safeguards in place for his family will alter the course of his life.
looking forward to reading other books by this author.
