As I have stated before - I love Teresa Medeiros and have yet to find a book by her that I have not loved! This book is the second in the 2 book series about the Fairleigh sisters. This one is about Lottie who was first introduced as a 10 year old in the first book - A Kiss to Remember. Lottie is now about to turn 21 and having a coming out party, when she is compromised by a daring man who is considered an outcast in London society and rumor has that he killed his first wife.
A wonderful love story about second chances and opening your heart. You will not be disappointed with Medeiros and I recommend this book as well as any other by her.
I really enjoyed the book as it only took me two days to read it, but it's not as steamy as I generally like to get into. It's really a sad story of a broken household that bipolar disorder has destroyed and the people that were left in it's wake. Heart-wrenching even. Although tough to put down you don't get into any sort of steam aside from the first kiss until the end. Which apparently the story didn't need.
It's a lovely story none-the-less.
When free-spirited Lottie Fairleigh is found kissing Hayden St. Clair just before her coming-out ball, the ensuing scandal all but destroys her reputation. Lottie's embarrassed family insists that Lottie and Hayden marry and so Lottie finds herself married to a man she barely knows--a man who, if all the rumors are right, killed his first wife. To further complicate matters, Lottie's new home is haunted by the ghost of Hayden's first wife: will she destroy or save Hayden and Lottie's marriage?
