Product description

Product Description

Lady Helena Trevallier is, to outward appearances, a quintessential young lady of Society. She wanders the museums and art galleries, enjoys horse rides or brisk constitutionals — weather permitting — around the city’s many parks. She flits here and there, rather like an exotic butterfly and has several men trailing in her wake, in the hope she might favour them with a dance or better still allow them to escort her to one of the many social gatherings.
Unusually for a young woman of the elite, Helena is in no hurry to marry, unwilling to allow a man to dictate her life, for she has a secret. A secret which, had her social set known anything about might see them throwing up their hands in horror and one which any prospective suitor would surely demand she curtail. Every day, Helena disappears into a world few acknowledge, to help the poor, the downtrodden and the abused.
Hugh Drummond, a wealthy shipping magnate, moves in quite different circles. He rarely mixes with Society and is happy spending his days working on his beloved ships. He takes great pains to avoid the extravagant events to which he occasionally receives invitations, for mamas looking to marry off their daughters usually stalk them and, a state of wedded bliss is something in which Hugh has no interest. He is too busy managing the shipping line and has no need of a wife whose only joy is dancing and frivolity. If — and it was a huge if — he ever marries, it would be to a woman as capable as he, not some giddy society Miss.
Then, quite unexpectedly, Hugh meets Helena and despite his resolve not to fall under her spell and her determination to maintain her independence — fate, it seems, has other ideas. Attraction quickly becomes something far deeper, but dark clouds appear on the horizon, heralding a storm that may yet tear them apart.
Skullduggery abounds, testing their wits and forcing them to an agonising decision, as someone with nefarious intent threatens to destroy all they hold dear.
Stunned when they uncover the identity of the perpetrator, Hugh and Helena have no idea the lengths their adversary is prepared to go, to claim what he believes is his, and as they close in, it becomes race against time. Will they succeed in preventing a tragedy or will their love be swept away, lost forever on a winter’s tide?

Yet again the readers taste buds are tantalised by Rosie Chapel's romantic style of story telling. We are navigated through such a lovely tale of romance, intrigue and just a smattering of danger as Hugh and Helena find not only happily ever after, but their love on a winters tide.
I'm waiting in fervent anticipation of the next instalment of this regency series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not your average historical romance! 18 June 2017
By Linda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I normally shy away from historical romance because they are written so formally it's hard to grasp but this story was in perfect English and I really enjoyed it. Lady Helena was born into nobility but she wasn't like that she would spend her days helping at the Sanctuary House a place for woman whose husbands have abused them. Helena was not much for the balls she was forced to attend in order to look for a husband so she would go with her friends Tabitha and Stephen just to make an appearance. One ball however she met Hugh Drummond and she was enchanted so when he offered to walk her home she couldn't resist.
The more Hugh was around Helena the more attracted he became but someone was trying to ruin his shipyard by causing accidents so he and Helena declared their love for each other and broke up. Hugh couldn't take a chance that they would come after Helena to get back at him but he hated to be away from her.
Helena was not your average spoiled noblewoman she would jump into things without thinking about the outcome which made Hugh realize she was the woman for him except now they have to stop who ever is out to get him so they can be together.
I requested this book for free from the author and I have chosen to review it
