Is the path I walk of my choosing or the one I am destined to travel?
Free to live the life of a rich widow in New York away from the gossips of London Lady Bernadette Marie Burton has no desire to allow another man to control her destiny. Matthew Milton knew the prestige and freedom money gave his life and now is living with the pain that losing it brings.
When these two forces meet in New York, there are actions beyond pleasure to partake in, a battle over maintaining one’s pride, and a tussle of wills to overcome. Matthew is scraping along the underbelly of New York trying to ensure everyone has a meal and a place to sleep while Bernadette fulfills her desires and lives out her dreams going from one adventure to the next. They both bring a calming peace to each other’s life and trying to overcome the obstacles standing in their way is very difficult. Overriding every other thought is the feeling that this is the moment to seize. Every expectation you have from life is right in front of you, so decide how to make the most of it together. Enemies abound for both of them, and trying to figure out which one of them is bringing trouble to their door is difficult to discern.
Delilah Marvelle writes with such exquisite beauty that the mere words on the page bring a blush to your check and a tear to your eye. With each book, Ms. Marvelle delivers on the diversity of life and the romance you can find if you keep looking.

I received a copy of Forever a Lady through NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion, and I genuinely LOVED this novel!!! Now, anyone who knows me knows how much I absolutely love historical romance novels; this is definitely on my list of favorite books now. In the prologue, we are introduced to Matthew Milton, the main character, who is rescuing Ronan from a man, who has dealings with his mother; we also meet Coleman, who ends up befriending Matthew. Chapter one is years later, and Matthew is still poor, leading a group called the Forty Thieves, and is blind in one eye. The story is also told from Bernadette Burton's point-of-view; she is the richest widow and does as she pleases. She and Matthew meet in London while they are riding horses, he's with Coleman, and she is with Georgia; when Matthew saves her from being cropped, their lives are forever changed (in a good way). This novel had all of the right elements and didn't lack in anything…if you're not mature or don't like love scenes, I suggest not reading this novel. Even though Matthew's character was supposed to be super poor and only had sight in one eye, I found him to be very intriguing and attractive. The thing I loved most about this novel is that the author, Delilah, didn't shy away from anything. I also admire the fact that she included tidbits about "The Truth Teller and also the Five Points at the end of the novel, in the Author's Note. Although this novel is the second in a series, it can be read as a stand alone novel. If Historical Romance is your genre, I HIGHLY recommend that you purchase this novel today! I'm super anxious for Coleman's story!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
