Fate works in wicked ways, so do little sisters.
Rowena has been widowed now for 3 years and has resigned herself to widowhood at her young age. She has decided to get out and travel with her sister Delphine to their friend Alice's place since she is expecting. Once there, Rowena hears that, Simon, Alice's brother will be joining them for the visit. Rowena is unsure of what to do...Simon was her first love and her rejection from Simon all those years ago still hurt. Can she deal with seeing him again? How will she feel about him?
Simon has been away for a long time fighting in the war over in India and has returned to take over for his ailing uncle and help care for his sister. This is also a perfect time to see if he has waited long enough to seek out his first and only love, Rowena. Will she still care? Does she even wonder about him any longer? Can he forgive her for marrying his best friend in his absence?
I absolutely loved these characters! From the bad-mannered l¿il sister Delphine, Rowena the young widow battling with her emotions, to the ever so handsome Simon. I fell for Simon hard! He had me all twisted up with his gentle caring and feverish need for Rowena.
This seems like a light sweet romance at first then all the twists and turns start to play out and you see that things aren't what they seemed, but thankfully fate with a lilttle help from little sisters has a way of putting things right.
When you look at this gorgeous cover you think... Ok this is a historical romance, some like historical and some don't. I'm a closet lover of historical but I will proudly be SCREAMING... "GET YOUR COPY TODAY" you do not need to be a lover of historical to enjoy this book while Vivienne Westlake does a great job of taking us to this place and time. It was such an enjoyable read, I wasn't concentrating on the historical aspects as much as I was so enthralled by the story itself.

Series Rekindled Passion #1
"Lady Northam's Wicked Surrender" by Vivienne Westlake was some short historical romance with some erotica and was the first in this series 'Rekindled Passions #1. This was the novel of "Rowena and Simon were once in love but circumstances and miscommunication separated the young lovers. Now, fate brings them face to face again and their feelings for each other are still very much alive after all these years." Now this is where I will say you must you must pick up this wonderful well written read to see where all this author will take the readers. Will Rowena and Simon be able to work through their issues in order to have a future together? Yes, this novel has a lots of sexual descriptive content and its all good. Would I recommend this read? YES!

Dreams really do come true for Rowena when her former love walks into her bedroom and fulfills her fantasies. After Simon left for India six years ago, Rowena is left waiting for him. She stops waiting after her soon to be husband and brother feed her lies for the purpose of bettering themselves. Then after 3 years of marriage to Paul, Rowena is widowed and Simon is waiting to come back and pick up the pieces.
This is a hot and steamy book. The lust comes from love and it makes for great scenes. My only problem is I wish it were a longer book. This is book 1 in a series and I hope to hear more form Rowena and Simon. A great erotic read.

This is a very romantic read! I was so invested in the characters and felt their struggle so keenly-the ending was definitely satisfying. And the story was hot enough to steam up my windows-whew!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
