Christopher (Kit) Roker never imagined he’d be the Earl of Sunderland. Sure, his twin brother was a bit of a wild man but when he’s tragically killed, Kit is forced to end his illustrious career in the military and return home. He’s introduced to the Wicked Earls’ Club and its illustrious members. While grieving the loss of his brother he meets Lady Grace, a beautiful woman who makes him laugh and his grief lessen.
Grace watched in horror six years ago as her mother gave up her life in childbirth. Not only did she lose her beloved mother but had to become a mother to her newborn brother and companion to her father. She loves her independence and has no interest in becoming a wife or mother. But things change in her heart as she spends day after day with the Earl of Sunderland. When he shares his feelings for her, she flees in terror. It’s only after being apart does she realize her true feelings for Kit. Can she bury her fear and let in love or will she forever be alone?
The whole time I was reading this book, I kept saying to myself how this reminded me of Pride and Prejudice. Is Aubrey Wynne the reincarnation of Jane Austen? Only she knows for sure, but the similarities are there. A tragedy or two, heroine both strong and fragile, hero conflicted about his feelings, secondary characters fleshed out, humor and wit peppered throughout the dialogue as well as a happy ending. Best Regency Romance I’ve read in a long time and highly recommend!
My Rating: 5+ stars
The main male characters were two twins, one in the army, fighting Bonaparte and the other, the Earl of Sunderland, who weds a young woman named Eliza. Then there was Grace. Her mother dies in childbirth giving her beloved husband a son. At fifteen Grace must care for her baby brother, Sammy, and run the house, while her father grieves the loss of his wife.
Grace and Eliza are cousins. So when the Earl of Sunderland, Carson, dies running his horse too fast in the dark and breaking his neck, Grace goes at once to be with her cousin. Christopher, called ‘Kit’ by his family is to be the new Earl of Sunderland. Only Eliza is pregnant, so if the child is a boy, the infant will be the new Earl of Sunderland.
In most stories, this situation would be rife with anger, resentment, and connivings. But not in this one. These delightful characters all want the best for each other, and as a result, they all end up getting the most out of their lives. Even if it isn’t the life some of them expect to have.
5 feel good stars!!!
Grace Beaumont has seen the devastation love can cause. After all, it cost her mother her life and thrust Grace into the role of “lady of the house” and mother to her newborn brother at a young age. Vowing to never marry, let alone give birth, Grace dedicates her life to the care of her father and young brother. At least until a would-be Duke enters her life.
Can Grace help Kit find order in his uncertain future? Can Kit help Grace overcome her fear of love and convince her that love is worth the risk?
Aubrey Wynne does an excellent job infusing her characters with many layers and depths of emotions. Kit’s restlessness jumped from the pages while Grace’s fear was palatable. All of which kept me glues to the pages until “The End”.
Thank you, Ms. Wynne for an emotion packed story worth reading.
