Julianne MacLean's newest was foreshadowed in her previous work Love According to Lily, however this piece works as a stand alone as well.
With a delightful backstory we're treated to lower class hero who tries to heal the wounds her caused in Annabelle's past for both their futures. It's a quick read and easy to cheer for the 34 year old Annabelle finally achieving the forbidden happiness she so desired in her youth.
A love story of redemption and restoration.
How can love go so wrong and turn out right?
He isn't always what he seems to be and certainly not what others think of him. But can she forgive the past and let what she has hidden in her heart be her guide to finding his love a second time?
good story and closes out the series with heartfelt warmth.
Excellent, as always for Julianne Maclean's books.
Very good. A good look at forgiveness & love.
A picture of deception . . .
Annabelle Lawson knew nothing about the breathtaking stranger she met on the trainâonly that he'd make an ideal model for the budding young artist . . . and that she desired him more than she believed possible. But after she'd been seduced, she learned that she'd also been betrayed.
The man she thought she loved was really Magnus Wallisâa scoundrel like his father before him, the loathed cousin of Annabelle's benefactor, the honorable Earl of Whitby.
A landscape of love . . .
No longer the naively romantic girl who would tumble for a rogue, Annabelle cannot avoid a reunion with the despicable Magnus, who wants to include her portraits in his new London gallery. She means to show him her coldest faceâbut upon seeing him again, her every intention melts from the heat of his touch. It is clear that Magnus still burns with love for her. But is he still the villain he once was, or can he be reformed into a man Annabelle can dare to love?
