My Thoughts 

A second chance romance in a historical setting, Henry had looked to marry money in his youth, but now he’s a decorated military hero and a private investigator. He’s never been able to forget Lady Georgiana, now a widow in charge of her husband’s factories. She has improved life vastly for her employees and makes an enemy among society in the process. Henry has been hired to look into Lady Georgiana’s troubles and finds himself protecting her in the process. Are the sparks between them still present? 

Started off slow for me, but picked up nicely by 45%, at which point I was invested. This gave me Jane Austen Persuasion vibes and I loved that. ❤️

When I originally requested this on NG, I was unaware that it was part of a series. This worked fine enough as a standalone but you likely will feel at points that you’re missing out on parts of established other character relationships. I did. 

I found this to be an enjoyable read by an author I plan on reading again.

Fans of Netflix’s Bridgerton series will love this captivating second chance story—from the series that delivers “both emotional intensity and lush sensuality, and vivacious writing enhanced by ample measures of wit.” (Booklist, Starred Review)

Lady Georgiana Arlington has always done what’s best for her family—even when it meant marrying a man she didn't love to save her father. Her husband’s death has left her stronger and bolder—a hellion, some would even say. When a mysterious enemy jeopardizes her livelihood and reputation, there’s only one person she can trust to help her uncover the threat: the same man she left heartbroken years ago.

Captain Henry Harris is no longer the penniless fortune hunter he was when they first met. Now a decorated naval hero, he could have his choice of women, but no other woman has Georgie’s allure, nor the tenacity he can’t help but admire. Assisting Lady Arlington will put both his body and his heart in danger—and yet, he can’t resist a second chance with the one woman he’s never been able to forget.
