It is no secret that Anne Gracie is one of my favourite authors and this story is going on my favourite list as well, I savoured every word in this delightfully beautiful story I made it last because, although I wanted to get to that HEA I wanted to stay with Lily and Edward as long as I could, actually it was fabulous being with Cal and Emm, and Lily’s sister Rose and niece Georgiana again. Do yourself a favour and make yourself comfortable for a journey that is sure to leave you smiling.

Lady Lily Rutherford is young shy and has a disability that that causes her shame and problems but her family are there to support and help her and this is one reason why Lily is in no hurry to marry another reason she wants to marry for love, even though her aunt is pushing for her find a suitable husband. While Lily is at a ton rout disaster happens and Lily is abducted and whisked away by a no good cur. Lily shows such strength though her ordeal and is rescued by Edward Galbraith a cold hearted rake or is he?

Edward is shocked to see the woman standing in the freezing rain on the road, as a gentleman he rescues her and saves her not realizing who she is, but of course a gentleman and a Lady of the ton do not travel together even in these circumstances without scandal, and Edward is drawn to her, a sister of his friend although she is so very innocent that first kiss sets sparks flying and when Edward proposes marriage a marriage of convenience and Lily after some thought accepts this starts a journey for Edward, will Lily get under that brick wall that Edward has built around himself since the war?

MS Gracie has a knack at bringing the regency period and her characters to life on the pages, humour abounds as does love and a sensuality that will have you falling into the story and falling in love with her heroes and heroines, in this case Edward and Lily, this one is a beauty moving, emotional and so very delicious, I loved it from page one, seeing Lily and then Edward fall for each other is a dream and I highly recommend it and woohoo I look forward to more in this series George and Rose’s stories are sure to be another hit. Thank you MS Gracie you have left this reader so very happy fabulous story.

5/5 stars for a fabulous story
