Theresa Jennings strayed from the path of propriety as a younger woman, though now she'll do anything to secure her child's eventual acceptance on the fringes of polite society. Theresa will even make peace with the titled brother who turned his back on her when she needed him most.

Matthew Belmont is a widower who's been lonely too long. He sees Theresa as a woman paying far too high a price for mistakes long past, and as a lady given too little credit for turning her life around. Theresa is enthralled by Matthew's combination of honorable intentions and honest passion, but then trouble comes calling, and it's clear somebody wants to ruin any chance Theresa and Matthew have for a happily ever.

Matthew's story deals with his life as a magistrate, his 3 sons off at school, and finally ready to move on from his disastrous marriage after being a widower for many years. His neighbor's estranged and disgraced sister is the one that most appeals to Matthew, and Teresa's daughter captures his heart as well. When attempts against Matthew's life occur, everyone rallies around the popular magistrate. Good story, very satisfying.

I am a huge Grace Burrowes fan & really enjoy her books. That said, Matthew is now one of my favorites. Not flashy, not a duke w all the usual young wealthy folks problems, Matthew is a true gentleman that could win my heart any day. I love the parenting woes, facing the hurt of disappointment in relationships, second chances, and the thrill of life giving you gifts you never expected. More than that, I love that I just finished this book and am smiling @ the end of a tough day:).

This story takes place right after Thomas. Thomas and Loris have gone on their honeymoon and have left Linden in Thomas' estranged sister, Theresa. For the past 8-10 years, Thomas and Theresa have had no relationship. Thomas is disappointed with Theresa's choices 8-10 years ago and he cut all ties until Loris reached out to him about making peace with his sister. In order to do this, he invites her and her daughter (which he knew nothing about because he refused to open any of her letters) to his home. While Thomas and Loris are away Theresa reaches out to his neighbor, Matthew, to aid with a possibly sick horse. Once they meet, they are drawn to each other and a relationship slowly blooms. I enjoyed hearing about Thomas' ruined sister Theresa and I am happy to see that they both got a second chance at happiness. Both of their beginnings as parents were harsh, though they loved their children so much. He married his wife who was already pregnant with another man's child. He stepped up to take care of her. Unfortunately, she never truly loved him and was unfaithful to him. Theresa had Priscila 8 years ago in order to protect herself from her cruel cousins and their machinations. Their love story was enjoyable. The villain was a bit difficult to figure out and all the clues pointed to one person when it was someone else. The plot and writing is easy to get into. It did have some slow parts and the passion was on the mild side, but I do enjoy Grace Burrowes' take on Regency Romance and I love how all of her stories are connected and woven together.
