Married off at 18 to a much older friend of her dying father's and at her wit's end to please him, Charlotte Wylde is shocked when her tyrannical husband ends up dead on the London streets. Now widowed and alone, Charlotte learns she is practically destitute and must deal with relatives she never knew existed, including the attractive but most suspicious Sir Alexander Wylde. Danger, mystery, and a Gothic slant add a touch of intrigue.
VERDICT Well-rendered, relatable characters, superb writing, an excellent sense of time and place, and gentle wit make this a romance that shouldn't be missed. After an absence of ten years from the romance market, Ashford returns with a Regency winner that will please her longtime fans and garner new ones, as well. Ashford (Bride To Be) lives in Boston.
