The story of a betrayal that wasn't. Even so, it still tore two lovers apart for eleven years. On the eve of their wedding, Michael Jeffres, Earl of Daventry, found his betrothed, the woman who meant as much to him as the air he breathed, in bed with his cousin. Diana, the daughter of a marquess, remembers nothing of that night. All she knows is she was forced to marry Michael's cousin, Leo, and then spent the next eleven years in hell.

When the two lovers are brought back together by a letter from Leo a year after his death, Michael and Diana must struggle through all the lies and secrets before they can find a love that far surpasses the one of their youth.

Find this review and more at Lusty Penguin Reviews! Beautifully written with lush details, The Letter by Sandra Owens is a captivating historical romance set in England in the 1800s. The Letter begins with a bang by enticing readers with a hate-filled and malicious piece of correspondence written by a character they can’t help but hate even though he is dead, Leo Standish, Baron Brantley. Widow Lady Diana Brantley was physically and mentally abused during her marriage to Leo. A year after his death, Diana and her young son, Jamie, are left penniless. Diana is an incredibly strong character, after surviving years of abuse you can’t help but feel for her character. When Leo’s cousin, Lord Michael Jeffers, reads Leo’s letter, Michael determines that he will help Diana, who had been his fiancée before Leo tricked everyone. At first Michael only wants to help Diana and Jamie (a son who could be his), but upon seeing her, Michael realizes that he has never stopped loving her. Years of abuse have changed Diana into a different person, scared and meek. Michael creatively comes up with ways to help Diana understand he is in no way like Leo and would never physically strike her. His continued effort makes Michael an incredible leading man because he knows the Diana he fell in love with is in there waiting to come out. The chemistry between Michael and Diana sizzles throughout while Michael courts Diana again. The magic of this couple shines as Michael gives Diana the strength to show him the physical damage she has sustained and in turn makes her feel more beautiful than she has ever felt before. Their bedroom play is loving and full of heat and passion. Consummately blending an entertaining couple, romance, and surprising plot twists makes The Letter an emotionally compelling story of forgiveness and love’s power to heal. I received an eBook copy of the book for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.

Sandra Owens pens "The Letter" in a plot filled with emotions and romance, with a touch of humor  that hooked me in right from the start. The author's main characters were very well developed as well as her secondary characters, which I find rare in romance novels. Highly recommended for all regency romance lovers. This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.
