STORY: “Expect the unexpected, especially in a room filled with books. . .”
Honoria Duchamp is well aware that men often consider widows easy prey for the role of mistress. What else could explain the attentions of handsome Lord Devin, and his visits to her bookshop? The much younger Viscount has even shown interest in the printing press with which she creates pamphlets on London’s basest injustices. Yet his chief interest appears to be in her. . .
Coerced to investigate Nora’s controversial pamphlets, Devin expected to find a bookish matron. Instead, he is taken with Nora’s womanly beauty, sharp intellect, and quick wit. Soon, what begins as an unwelcome task becomes a pleasure, and Devin’s job becomes more dangerous-for them both. For Nora has no idea of the vicious element she’s crossed. Now Devin will risk his reputation to protect her-and much more to win her love. . .
REVIEW: Once in a blue moon an author will take a chance and write a romance involving an older, mature heroine and a younger, dashing hero. I am so happy when that happens!
It makes for an interesting and very entertaining romance filled with drama and suspense as well as some fascinating characters that will stay with you for some time.
Please don’t let the difference in their ages deter you from reading this story. The age difference between Nora and Devin is what makes this story so compelling.
I highly recommend it!
