In 1806, Brian Ranson married Gillian, but before going off to war in the Peninsular, the Earl spent his last hours in England with his mistress instead of his young shy wife. When he fought against Napoleon in Portugal, she thrived taking over the running of his property profitably. In 1810 Brian comes home to a strong sassy spouse who blithely informs him she plans to have a lover Andres Ramigio and divorce her husband. He is taken aback and attracted to his wife he scandalized four years ago in front of the Ton and recently having been back home for six months before coming to claim her. Brian and Andres are prepared to duel over Gillian so she agrees give him thirty days to make amends and win her over. This second chance at love regency romance is a delightful tale as the Earl learns claiming and keeping is not quite the same thing. The story line is fast-paced from the moment Brian comes for Gillian only to have her reject him. Sub-genre fans will enjoy this fine tale of a politician who learns what love is but the lesson may prove too late as his rival has been much kinder and nicer to his wife than he has been.

This book had such big potential. I read the summary and I was so excited. I was disappointed after I read the book. The book was good in the beginning but I thought the writing was hard to follow. It kept switching views too quickly without even a line of separation. In that respect it was hard to follow. Also I thought the book was too short. I was close to the end of the book and I looked at how many pages I had left and I thought "The author cannot possible finish the book" but she did. The ending was rushed. Almost like the author had to finish the book by a certain time and she couldn't make the deadline so she cut out 50 pages. In short I was extremely disappointed.

The earl was an ass to humiliate his wife and then force her tto comply with his own shelfish goals and she was disappointing as a heroin. His fsther and his mistress in the end both achieved their gosls. The earl ends up being a diplomate and his mistress ends up with his father and has gilly taking care of her child.

The hero of the story, Brian, was fabulous; however the rest of it left a lot to be desired. Gillian seemed like a cut-out character. Also, there were just too many big misunderstandings, which could have been easily avoided with honesty.

Good Story! I enjoyed the story. The story line was easy to follow and the story was well written. The story had betrayal. and romance. If the story can bring out all sort of emotions out of the reader, it is well written and has achieved its goal.

The second book in this series read a little better than the first. I think because the story's background had been introduced in the first book.

This book had a great premise, but definitely fell short for me. It was too short and the ending felt rushed.
