Pride meets prejudice – can love blossom?
Beautiful young widow, Lady Eliza Wyndham, is determined never to remarry after a disastrous first marriage. The undeniable attraction that fizzes between her and Major Nathaniel Overton terrifies her. She rejects his advances.
With his pride badly dented, Nat vows to forget Eliza until he finds her in danger from an old adversary of his army days. His protective instincts are stirred and he steps back into her life, but will Eliza be prepared to accept his help?
A fabulous read that I couldn’t put down!
Eliza and Nathaniel (Nat) didn’t have the best of starts, he jumped a fence on his horse and ended up causing her to crash her carriage. He then blamed the accident on her and didn’t take any responsibility! Unsurprisingly she wasn’t all that keen on him although he was captivated by her
I loved Eliza as a character, she had been in an abusive marriage and was wary of any men especially those who may want to marry her but she is still drawn to Nat. She is vulnerable but strong and determined, she felt so real
Nat isn’t long out of the army and he had a bad experience of society ladies so is immediately put off by Eliza but it doesn’t stop him wanting her. His fight between heart and head work so well for his character and his story is one of character growth and development. He also has a strong protective nature which helps with some of the twists!
Part of the reason this book worked so well was because it was possibly to read the story from both Nat and Eliza’s point of view, without that I think I would have struggled to like them due to not understanding their characters or motivations
This story is full of drama and intrigue with unexpected turns which kept me on my toes and pulled me deeper into Nat and Eliza’s world
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a more non traditional historical romance with a strong and determined hero and heroine who you will adore

Josie lives in the English midlands, surrounded by towns full of history such as Evesham, Stratford-Upon- Avon, Warwick and Worcester. Which is perhaps why her favourite reads are historical. Out of all the periods to choose from the Regency Era stirs her imagination the most. The true Regency lasted from 1811 until 1820 but dates as wide as 1789 to 1837 have been included in the extended Regency period. For Josie the true flavour of this period emerges after the iniquitous hair powder tax of 1795, unsurprisingly, scuppered the fashion for hair powder almost overnight.
Josie has always dabbled in stories but it took the combined efforts of her sister and eldest niece to set her on the path to writing novels. Her Regency romances, with a dash of adventure and intrigue, are the result.
