In this delightful Regency romp, a duke will have to decide whether a second chance at love is worth losing it all.
The last thing Katrina Denby expected to find in her garden is the body of the man who ruined her three seasons ago. No matter that his death is a tragic accident, the rumors are enough to kill any woman’s prospects. With two scandals now hounding her, the best she can hope for is a hasty marriage of convenience—until her first love shows up in her drawing room, reminding her of all the reasons why she wanted a love match. If only he weren’t already engaged. . .
Sebastian Thorne, Duke of Ramsleigh, knows what he has to do to save the dukedom from the crushing debts and scandal his father left: marry and marry well. He’s picked the lady, too—a baron’s daughter who is pleasant, if a little boring. But seeing Katrina again makes him want to throw all those perfectly laid plans out the window. The first chance he had with her, he chose his duty over his heart. Doing so again might prove utterly impossible.

A rare thing of beauty: A second-chance romance where neither main character has done anything stupid 😂
When Katrina and Sebastian were young, flirtation was inching closer and closer to falling in love when crazy circumstances sent things into a tailspin for each of them. After an unexpected coincidence brings them together four years later, each are focused on salvaging pieces of their former dreams and falling in love seems impossible.
Yet their love & chemistry are undeniable. Katrina and Sebastian are both clearly mourning what could have been yet they are only concerned with everyone else's well-being and happiness. It was interesting how this book focused a lot on the worst parts of the gender roles and responsibilities during that time. However, I love a hard-won HEA, and this totally delivered. I loved this book!
Thank you so much to @readforeverpub, @grandcentralpub, and @netgalley for the arc of this book. All thoughts, feelings, etc. are honest and mine!
This second book in this series was great. It was such a touching and beautiful slow burn romance.
This series has been a wonderful one and I can't recommend it enough.
This was such a breath of fresh air! Both the main characters were sweet but not saccharine, and it was a nice second-chance story where no forgiveness was required of either of them. It had surprising depth to it, showing that life and society can (and often does) punish you for things beyond your control, but that makes love and friendship all the more valuable.
I hadn't read this author before, and I'll definitely be doing so in the future. I can't wait to pick up book 1 in this series!
