Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this tender and endearing Regency, first published by Signet in 1995, beautiful and brave Roxanna Drew must face the harsh realities of life alone with two young daughters after her husband dies. Forced to make the most of her small allowance, she moves into the nearby dower house of absentee landlord Lord Winn, a recent pariah of the ton after divorcing his disloyal wife and publicizing her list of lovers instead of remaining silent and accepting her cheating ways, as society would dictate. Winn visits unexpectedly, and he and Roxanna sense an immediate attraction to one another, but keep their feelings hidden even as their time together deepens their bond. When Roxanna’s future is threatened and Winn offers a life-changing solution, both must decide just how brave they can be. RITA-winner Kelly (The Surgeon’s Lady) spins passionate longing and hope into a story that will draw in and satisfy readers. (Sept.)
Library Journal
A resourceful young vicar's widow, desperate to escape her lecherous brother-in-law and provide for her two daughters, moves into the rundown dower house on a neglected estate and is surprised when a winter storm brings the estates' long-absent, scandal-ridden owner to her door and, eventually, into her family's life. A witty, emotional, and satisfying romance from one of traditional Regency's most respected authors, this RITA Award winner was originally published by Signet Regency in 1994 and is one of Kelly's best.
