Honor demands he give her up:
Heath Whitworth, Marquess of Mulgrave and heir to a dukedom, is honorable to his handsome bones. When his mother insists he spend the holidays dancing attendance on Lady Emilia Aberdeen, he has no choice but to do the gentlemanly thing. For years, Heath has harbored feelings for the lady, but he knows exactly why his best friend jilted Emilia years ago, and that secret makes a happily ever after for Heath and Emilia an impossibility.
Love demands she follow her heart:
Heartbroken after the man she loved ended their betrothal, Lady Emilia Aberdeen, is quite content to live a spinster's life penning an anonymous column that offers guidance to young ladies. Except, the more she is thrown into Lord Mulgrave's company, the more she sees that the proper, always-aloof gentleman is also charming, clever, and inconveniently attractive. Emilia discovers maybe it is possible to love again but with secrets between them, Heath will face his greatest challenge yet: loving Emilia Aberdeen or letting her go.

A Lady’s Guide to a Gentleman's Heart is book two in The Heart of a Scandal Series. This is another winner from Ms. Caldwell. I read the entire book in one day because I couldn't put it down. The hero is a new favorite for me. Heath Whitworth, Marquess of Mulgrave is a man of amazing honor and loyalty. “Jacketless and in his bare, well, stocking clad feet. And she, for the first time in her life, had been...intrigued by Heath Whitworth, of all gentlemen. Tall, lean, and wiry, he’d an altogether different physique than her former betrothed. Only, sans jacket and cravat with his lawn shirt gaping open, she’d appreciated for the first time the chiseled perfection of his frame. From the aquiline nose, to the sharp cheeks, noble jaw, and brow, he put her in mind of one of those Greek statues she’d admired in the London Museum.” Lady Emilia Aberdeen is an unconventional whoot! I loved her sense of humor and her antics. I can’t wait to read the next in this series.
