Nd herself stranded on the way to LondonMore than twenty years in the West Indies have hardened Edward Cary but not enough to abandon a helpless woman at a roadside inn especially one as disarmingly beautiful as Charlotte He takes her with him to the Gloucestershire estate he is determined to restore though he is suspicious of every word that falls from her distractingly lush lipsAs far as Charlotte knows Edw.

Up On Or Cared on or cared For instance the references to Tempest and the ship captain she ends up with in the second book seemed like it might be for me I might just The Widows Little Secret give one of the other books in this series a tryOverall The characters were a little Meh for my taste but it could have just been this story I wasn t really into But I ll probablyive another book in this series a try in the futur.
