Overview

A Secret Affair (Huxtable Quintet Series #5) by Mary Balogh

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Mary Balogh's The Secret Mistress.

Born a commoner, Hannah Reid has been Duchess of Dunbarton since she was nineteen years old. Now her husband is dead and, more beautiful than ever at thirty, Hannah has her freedom at last. To the shock of a conventional friend, she announces her intention to take a lover—and not just any lover, but the most dangerous and delicious man in all of upper-class England: Constantine Huxtable. Constantine’s illegitimacy has denied him the title of earl, so now he denies himself nothing. Rumored to be living the easy life of a sensualist on his country estate, he always chooses recent widows for his short-lived affairs. Hannah will fit the bill nicely. But once these two passionate and scandalous figures find each other, they discover that it isn’t so easy to extricate oneself from the fires of desire—without getting singed.

This book is excellent; a very quick read. It has seduction, romance, heart ache and resolution to unanswered questions from the previous books about Constantine's history. There is not as much of the ton and social rituals of that era as previous books. This is much more of a family story. Part of the ending is hinted at approximately half way through the book, but actual ending has an unexpected twist. This was a great ending to the Huxtable family saga.

To use the Duchess' own word, it gets a bit "tedious" in some parts. An easy read and a happy ending, so if that is what you're looking for, this would be a good book to pick up on sale.

I was surprised by this book. It really was a sweet story. My first read from this author and good enough to entice me to try another title. I actually teared a bit reading this......first for me. :)
