STORY: From the author of the Kellington series of Regency romances, comes the third book in the Emerson saga.
Lady Winifred Pierce has been wrongly accused of the murder of her abusive husband. Despite the best efforts of her family, someone is set on seeing her hang.
Alexander Lewis is the barrister prosecuting the case. He’s told it will be the easiest win of his career. But something isn’t right. When he objects to the proceedings, he’s told to get a conviction or lose the career he worked so hard to attain.
Can two lonely people find love with each other in such desperate circumstances? (Well, yes, it’s a romance novel.)
REVIEW: As most of you know, I am a huge fan of this author and both of her series, Kellington’s and Emerson’s. But if I was hard pressed to choose a favorite book from all of them?! This one would be right at the top. The reason for it is Ms. Driscoll’s characterization of Win, the heroine. My heart went out to this wonderful woman who had to go through hell before she found piece and happiness in Alex’s arms. Her story is touching and heartbreaking, so when she triumphs, my heart just sang!
And then we have Alex. What a wonderful hero he made! He was a perfect man for our heroine. She sure needed someone who would do anything to protect her, no matter the consequences to himself.
Listen, if you like your romances to feature a bit of mystery and intrigue this one is a must.
By the way, if you’ve read the other series, you’ll love the appearance of the Kellington’s!
