A Touch of Velvetby Regina Jeffers
After years away from England, members of the Realm return home to claim the titles and the lives they once abandoned. Each man holds on to the fleeting dream of finally knowing love. For now, all any of them can hope is the resolutions of their previous difficulties before Shaheed Mir, their old enemy, finds them and exacts his revenge. Mir seeks a mysterious emerald, and he believes one of the Realm has it.
No one finds his soul mate when she is twelve and he seventeen, but Brantley Fowler, the Duke of Thornhill, always thought he had found his. The memory of Velvet Aldridge's face was the only thing that kept him alive all those years he remained estranged from his family. Now, he has returned to Kent to claim his title and the wom- an he loves, but first he must obliterate the memory of his infamous father, while staving off numerous attacks from Mir's associates.
Velvet Aldridge always believed in "happily ever after." Yet, when Brantley Fowler returns home, he has a daughter and his wife's memory to accompany him. He promised her eight years prior that he would return to make her his wife, but Thornhill only offers her a Season and a dowry. How can she make him love her? Make him her "knight in shining armor"? Regency England has never been hotter or more dangerous.

This is Regina's second book of the Realm series and I find myself drawn in further with these characters. I have to admit Velvet is not my favorite heroine as she is self involved. The beginning of her story is closely knit with Lady Eleanor’s and if you have read the first book in the series you get the picture that Velvet is somewhat clueless to what poor Eleanor has gone through. However it is wonderful to watch her and Brantley mature in this book and come together through adversity. This book is also out with a new cover which I like much better than this plain one. If you can get that one instead. :)
