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.
