Lord Jonathan Hartley’s first love left him a broken man. Now that Isabella is back, widowed, wounded and more lovely than ever, the last thing he wants to do is revisit the past.
But Isabella has a way of digging up all the secrets he thought he had buried. His undimmed love for the tragic heiress is only one of them.
If Jonathan wants to find happiness again, he must first conquer his demons – and then, his enemies.
Isabella, the widowed Countess of Streatham, knows she belongs in Jonathan’s arms. But she is no longer the naïve debutante who believed in true love, and marriage brought her pain she vowed never to endure again.
Jonathan abandoned her once, and if he wants her forgiveness, she will make him fight for it.
Whether she falls in love again is quite a different question.
