Another god book from Hanna Hamilton. A duchess who witnessed the murder of her father was in danger so she decided to hide under the disguise of a governess to a duke's 2 children. Their mother was often sick and didn't give the children love or time. The story goes on when the Duke falls in love with her but is loyal to his wedding vows to a cold wife who is actually in love with her first love. The suspense begins when the duke's uncle tries to have the governess killed but all ends well with the help of the duke and there is indeed a happy ever after.
What a tangled web we weave.... Caroline is beautiful, intelligent, accomplished - and governess to two children. Her mistress is despondent,often bedridden and beautiful - and conniving. The Duke is handsome, wealthy, astute, a loving father - and very conscious that he is a married man under God. This is not a religious book, it is a book of intrigue, suspence, love and unseen danger to Caroline from many unknown villains. A really good read that I would recommend to all. I am an ARC reader and this is my honest thoughts on this very readable book.
The tale is one of romance, intrigue and of jealousy and the extraordinary lengths that evil people will go to in a goal to bring about the destruction of Caroline. When you think that the love between Caroline and the Duke can never come to anything without the Duchess being killed off, there is a twist that is quite unexpected. A book I couldn't put down. I was given an advance copy if this book in exchange for an honest review and I can't wait to read from this author.
What can be said about this book, once again this is a must read book. Full of drama and love, extremely well written. Took me just under 2 days to read and that is with normal life going on. Could not put it down until finished, and when not reading it, rhinking about what next could happen.
This is a well written story with characters who exhibit strength and honesty in their lives. Of course there are also those characters who are evil and malicious, whose only aim is to harm others for their own benefits. Sorting out the good from the bad is not always easy, and this adds to the suspense which builds until the last few chapters. I particularly liked that this story, while an historic regency novel, did not concentrate on the notorious gossip that seemed to fill the lives of the ton of the time. There must be gossip and false accusations among those who are not privy to the truth, but that is a small part of this storyline. I received an arc of this book, and voluntarily review and recommend this story to anyone wishing to read a well written, well planned story.
