    Betrayed the second book in the series Curvier Widows are a defi

    Betrayed the second book in the series Curvier Widows are a definite must read. Filled with secrets, lies, suspense, fear of being hurt all played a part in building this intriguing love story to a climatic end where each person is confronted with truth, of letting go of the past to allow a future to unfold before them.
    The main emphasis of the story line was richly encrafted through out many of the characters drawing them together as their lives become one. Illegitimacy running havoc in the main character Nicole Curvier the second widow of the deceased Jean Curvier. 
    The story continues from book 1 as we met the young widow Nicole in difficult circumstances, without a husband and pregnant. Her life in turmoil as she admits that history was repeating itself in her life. Growing up as a love child never knowing who her father was and been teased by other uncaring children she never wanted that same life for her own child. Deciding to find a husband who would be willing to give her unborn child his name and than leave. This is where all the trouble started for her but yet opened a world of renewed love to her which all centered around Rosewood.
    Finding a diary in her deceased husband closet she get to see the devastation in another woman's life allowing her self to heal through this unknown woman's pain.
    Maxim Viel an influential Financial Business owner who grew up with the knowledge that he has the responsibility to get Rosewood back that once belonged to his family. Agreed to marry her to get his heritage back and giving the unborn child a name.
    But as time went on and the baby grew feelings also grew between the husband and wife in name only but always apart because of all the secrets stacked between them. The fear of trusting again. Of giving over the control of their hearts, the plantation a continues barrier between them.
    Nicole thought Max to be a drifter and he never corrected her as guilt plagued him of his own deception. Loosing the baby brought them together as they admit they care for each other without uttering a word. 
    We meet his son Paul who showed up and he tried to hide the fact from her. A young twelve year old with the wisdom of an adult.
    Consuelo servant and friend of Nicole, a wise old woman that protected her like a mother. Playing her part beautifully in the back ground. Strong and silent, an anchor to Nicole.
    Desiree mother of Paul and whore that only use his son to get more money from Max. Manipulative,  calculating and down right selfish human being.
    Charles a drunken father struggling with his own pain as he looses himself in the bottle.
    Audra an uptight mother who believed Rosewood belonged to her, trying to take over.
    Curious neighbors and gossiping women with nothing better to do but slander.
    This all played part in the unfolding story as we get to know Nicole who is trying to make sense of it all and leave a past behind. At the end the two strong characters had to let go of family burdens and the hold of illegitimacy to be together. 
    The way that Max found her father giving her sense of belonging was thoughtfully written bringing closure in her heart and the final shift in this suspense filled romantic story.
    The love scenes wonderfully written to emphasize their hearts longing and the depth of their love for each other.

    I think I am half in love with Max! He was stupid at times but I think I love him! lol. And I honestly didn't know how I was going to like Nicole's book. When I first read about her in book one I thought she seemed like a bit of a drama queen, but then you get to know her better and love her too! I highly recommend this series. It is a great romance with mystery as well. Can't wait to start book 3!
