Joanna and Colin meet again 3 years later, but again tragedy comes between them. Can they ever find a HEA or is there a curse that ever keeps thyhem apart?
Endearing Regency tale with great characters, wonderful storyline and an unusually arranged ending. This prequel to the Forbidden Love Series introduces us to Charles and Robert Dashwood as minor characters. Colin and Jo both feel guilt from a past incident. Can they overcome these fears and admit that they belong together? This story made me both smile and tear-up in places. I highly recommend this story. I received an ARC copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
