Georgianna never wanted to be a marchioness, but she loved Anthony as a friend and he loved her as much as she loved his cousin Quinn. Anthony’s death on their wedding night only added to the complications and the scandal.
Quinn was sent away when his cousin blamed him for Georgianna’s tragic accident. He had a successful career as a diplomat and a not so successful career as a husband. Now the new Marquess of Ellesmere, he has to sort out the problems caused by Anthony’s sudden death.
Georgianna has always loved Quinn, but knows that he does not feel the same way about her. Due to her father’s poor health, she has been performing his duties as steward of Penrose. Her mother-in-law has been spreading rumors and casting doubt about the validity of her marriage and now Quinn has come home to sort matters out and contract a marriage of convenience for the sake of his young daughter.
This is a wonderful romance set in the Regency era. It is full of scandal, misunderstandings and unrequited love. It is obvious to everyone but the two principals that Georgianna and Quinn are in love with each other, but Georgianna does not feel worthy to be marchioness and feels her friend Grace is better for Quinn. Quinn thinks that Georgianna does not love him as she did Anthony and cannot forgive Anthony for many things. The author has captured the era beautifully and created some memorable characters in the Widow’s Club. I just loved Ata. Georgie is a brave character who suffered great damage to her legs in a fall and does not let it stop her. The romance is tricky and not resolved until the end, keeping me very interested in this wonderful historical romance.
