When charming rake Tristan Barrett sweeps Lady Elizabeth off her feet, stealing both her heart and a kiss in a secluded garden, her brother challenges Tristan to a duel. The only way to save her brother and Tristan from harm—not to mention preserve her reputation—is to get married. But her father, the Duke of Pemberton, refuses to allow his daughter to marry anyone but a titled lord. The duke demands that Elizabeth marry Tristan’s older brother, Richard, the Earl of Averston. Now Elizabeth must give up Tristan to marry a man who despises her, a man who loves another, a man she’ll never love.

Richard fears Elizabeth is as untrustworthy as his mother, who ran off with another man. However, to protect his brother from a duel and their family name from further scandal, he agrees to the wedding, certain his new bride will betray him. Yet when Elizabeth turns his house upside down and worms her way into his reluctant heart, Richard suspects he can’t live without his new countess. Will she stay with him or is it too little, too late?

If you love regency romance, Donna Hatch is an author you don't want to miss.  She is one of my favorites.  Her books have strong characters with plenty of tension and sparks flying between them.

I love how this story unfolded, bit by bit.  The more I knew about both Richard and Elizabeth, the more I loved them.  Each had personal demons that tormented them daily, and kept them from letting go and loving.  It was quite a journey for these two but it was well worth it as a reader.

I had plenty of flutterings in belly with this book!  Oh, the build up and the misunderstanding.  This book has all the things I look for as a reader.  Every time I pick up a book by Donna Hatch, I know I'm in for a treat.

A hopeless romantic and adventurer at heart, she discovered her writing passion at the tender age of 8 and has been listening to those voices ever since. She has become a sought-after workshop presenter, and also juggles freelance editing, multiple volunteer positions, and most of all, her six children (seven, counting her husband). A native of Arizona who recently transplanted to the Pacific Northwest, she and her husband of over twenty five years are living proof that there really is a happily ever after.
