All her life, everyone assumed Paget Ellsworth, the vicar’s daughter, would marry the Earl of Winningham’s youngest son. And when he left for war with his older brother, Jamie, words and promises were not necessary. She would wait.
But destined for another…
Four years pass, and the death of his father forces Jamie home to take up the reins as the new earl, leaving his brother fighting on the front lines a world away. Maddening, infuriating, sexy Jamie makes Paget question her feelings. One glimpse, one word from him awakens desire in her heart. When a simple kiss spirals out of control at the annual Valentine’s Day ball, she realizes the man she never wanted is the man she needs…but will Paget cast aside all she’s ever thought to be true to win the man of her dreams?
REVIEW: This is a short andsweet story, obviously meant for Valentine’s Day reading, but really might be read anytime in between.
If you haven’t read the Forgotten Princesses series, don’t despair. It’s written in a way so it can stand alone.I liked this story for the pure joy of watching these two very different people come to realization that love and passion can be found with most unexpected people.
It’s a poignant story of friendship as well, and some regrets, but mostly, this is a story of love. Ms. Jordan does a great job of telling this tale in full, regardless of the length constraints within the novella.
If you’ve never read this author, this is a perfect read for you to find out if she’s someone you may want to invest your time and money in. I’m a long time fan, and this little gem proves once more that someone like her can still make me sigh and cry no matter how long or short the story is.
I highly recommend it to everyone that loves a well told, sweet, smart and heartwarming story.
