Overview

New York Times bestselling author, CHERYL HOLT, will sweep readers away with the first novel in her new and breathtaking ‘Lord Trent’ trilogy…

With the death of his older brother, Michael Wainwright, Viscount Henley, has become heir to his father, Duke of Clarendon. The Wainwright men are renowned cads, and as his brother’s will is read, it’s discovered that he sired an illegitimate son and has left the eight-year-old boy his entire fortune. Michael decides to bring the boy to London so he can be showered with all the wealth and status guaranteed by his inheritance. But first, he has to gain custody from the boy’s aunt, who is determined to keep her nephew away from Michael’s dissolute family.

Frances “Fanny” Carrington has always lived in a small village in the country. As a newborn, she was left in a basket on the church steps and raised by the vicar and his wife. But they’ve died, and Fanny is in dire straits, struggling to raise her nephew, to keep food on the table and a roof over their heads. When she begins to receive correspondence from Michael, asking for custody, she can’t help but be suspicious. For years, the Wainwrights have refused to claim her nephew or provide financial assistance to him. She’s alarmed by their sudden interest. What can it mean?

As Michael finally meets Fanny, their attraction is swift, blatant, and dangerous. He can’t fight the need to have her at any cost, and gradually, he lures her into his decadent life of affluence and privilege. But she’s never possessed the callous nature required to thrive in the cut-throat world of the aristocracy, so she could never understand the peril she faces from those who would do anything to keep them apart…

    Michael Wainwright, Viscount Henley, goes to the country to fetc

    Michael Wainwright, Viscount Henley, goes to the country to fetch his illegitimate nephew and bring him to London to be raised by his noble family. The boy's aunt Fanny Carrington objects. Of course, they're attracted to one another, but her social class is well beneath his and he has to marry an heiress to save the family from bankruptcy. I really wanted to like Michael, but he repeatedly lied and broke his promises to Fanny, leaving her in a worse predicament each time he was around her. He didn't deserve her at all. Fanny frustrated me because she allowed him to treat her poorly. I really wanted her to tell him off and mean it! I did, however, enjoy the villains all getting their comeuppance in the end.

    Good book

    Love's Promise was a good read. It does start off a little slow but picks up on in the book. I would recommend this book.

    bad characters to sart off a trilogy

    Michael was a self centered jerk with no redeeming qualities and Fanny was repeatedly a gullible fool. This does not make for good reading even for 99cents! delete
