Overview

The first Book In a New Trilogy (Dream Trilogy)

THE PROPOSAL
Driven to undo the evil wrought by her dead husband, Millicent Wentworth must find a way to save her estate and free the innocent people he enslaves. Her only hope is a marriage—in name only—to the notorious widower the Earl of Aytoun.
THE GROOM
Devastated by the tragic accident that killed his wife and left him gravely wounded, Lyon Pennington, fourth Earl of Aytoun, is tormented by the accusations that blame him for the catastrophe. Filled with despair, he lets his mother lure him into a marriage of convenience—for the sake of a good-hearted woman on the verge of financial ruin.
THE DESIRE
Under Millicent’s gentle gaze, Lyon begins to regain his strength and his wounded heart begins to heal. And soon Millicent discovers that beneath his unruly beard and grim demeanor, Lyon just may be the most handsome—and caring—man she’s ever encountered. For the first time in her life, she realizes that she is alive—alive with a smoldering desire for the one man she’ll love forever…

Winner of Holt Medallion for Best Historical Romance
Winner of Romantic Times Award for Best British-Set Historical Romance


May 28, 2003: Millicent Wentworth may have been unshackled from a miserable life when her cruel husband dies, but his legacy has left her impoverished and desperately needing to get help so she can continue to help those he enslaved. Her one hope comes with the offer of a marriage of convenience to a dowager's son. Lyon Pennington was emotionally and physically crippled in a horrific accident that left him a widower tormented by accusations of causing his wife's death. As the end of her life approaches, his loving mother is concerned about his care, and sees Millicent as someone who could assume the role of caregiver. Reluctantly, both parties agree. Neither wants another spouse, yet the marriage brings them both healing, desire, and eventually love.

    Engaging Georgian romance

    In 1772 though she owes a fortune due to her nasty deceased husband¿s debts to Jasper Hyde, Millicent Wentworth spends more than she can afford to buy an elderly Jamaican slave. Millicent immediately frees Ohenewaa while Jasper goes wild over learning he was outbid because he obsesses over owning the aging former slave.<P> Needing money badly, Millicent agrees to wed Lyon Pennington, a wealthy invalid wallowing in self-pity. His family pays off her debts and he is moved to her home where many free former slaves earn a wage. As Millicent pushes Lyon around and with the aid Ohenewaa a healer, he begins to recover much of what he lost in the accident that left his first wife dead. As the English couple falls in love, Jasper becomes desperate to get hold of Ohenewaa so he can force her to ¿free¿ him from her curse. He is willing to kill anyone in his way of achieving his goal.<P> This engaging Georgian romance works on several layers besides the obvious romance between the lead couple. The secondary players provide depth to the high morality of the prime protagonists so that the audience feels the mental anguish and physical pain of Lyon and the need bordering on guilt for Millicent to make retribution for her odious first husband¿s treatment of people. Though the Jasper subplot adds little to the prime tale except suspense and action, sub-genre readers will strike gold with this deep tale.<P> Harriet Klausner

    If your not rooting for Millicent and Lyon you have no romance in your soul and need to be reading a different genre.  The secondary characters are great also.  Some how I have overlooked these writers.  If this is an example of their work bring on the next one.  Can't wait to read the follow up books on the brothers.

    A 'Keeper'!

Neither wants another spouse, yet the marriage brings them both healing, desire, and eventually love. ........... ***** This is a tender story that offers a fresh and unusual twist on the Beauty and the Beast fable that holds a dear place in many a heart. A KEEPER!

    A very good read. Good characters, good plot and flowed well.

    A very good read. Good characters, good plot and flowed well. Glad to read a book where the people said what was on their mind and didn't imagine the motives of the other characters. Quite refreshing. Would highly recommend.

    Really liked this book. Millicent, having survived an abusive hu

    Really liked this book. Millicent, having survived an abusive husband, seeks to right past wrongs after his death - buying the freedom of her deceased husbands' slaves among other things. But between her good deeds and her husband's prior debts, she can't stay afloat without some help. Enter Lyon. Lyon is an invalid who is wallowing in despair. His mother, concerned that after her demise Lyon will be ferreted off to a madhouse, seeks to avoid that ending by marrying him off to responsible Millicent. Of course, it wouldn't be a romance novel if they didn't find love in one another and heal each other along the way. Also in the mix is Millicent's former husbands main creditor and his need to buy back a particular slave, Ohenewaa. He believes she has placed a curse on him and will not rest until he manages to have her under his control. Ohenewaa doesn't say much, but she's a powerful figure though out the novel. Looking forward to reading more from this author.
