About the Author
Catherine Gayle has been an avid reader of romance novels (and almost anything else she can legally get her hands on) for as long as she can remember. Her mother might say it started in the womb. When she is not writing or reading, she can often be found buried beneath her sleeping cat or chasing the Nephew Monster. She's a reality TV junkie, a hockey addict, and experimental cook. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book was good - but parts of it were a bit unbelievable. Especially the parts where everyone in town shuns Bethanne. Her uncle is an Earl and pays her bills - these town folks are going to deny her credit? Really? Also she has been living with her aunt for 8 years and Finn is 2 - but everyone believes he is hers? Again, Really?
I loved Roman. He is a gentleman through and through. He is tortured and suffering with PTS from his time at Waterloo. He has violent nightmares and doesn't feel worthy of love.
Bethanne is carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders and has finally reached her breaking point. Between the shunning, Finn, her aunt (who has what I assume is advanced Alzheimer's ) and all the secrets. She is barely functioning. She cries A LOT. And pushes Roman away at first.
Roman has a calming effect on Bethanne's aunt, so finally she relents and lets Roman help.
The story is good and well written, but it is really kind of bland. There is not really any sexual tension or even any real angst to drive the story. It is basically two people helping each other get through a bad time in their lives and I guess falling in love.
I didn't really feel the love. I agree with another reviewer who felt Roman was more in love with her aunt and with Finn than Bethanne.
I didn't love this book. But it was a nice, mindless read that was easy to put down and pick up later.
I love Bethanne story first off. The story line really fits her character. Poor Bethanne is burden down by so many secrets that she really needs help. Along comes Lord Roman and the best way to describe him would be baggage laden war hero. They both need to learn trust in order to make there love come alive.
If you have read the first book you really need to continue on and read Bethanne's story. Hers is such a heart warming story that really shows the true meaning of love.
