How could someone so buttoned up shoot fire through his blood the way she did?

Holly Farthingale is a young widow who hardly knew her husband before he went off to war and met his untimely end. She does not want to go through the pain of that loss again and intends never to marry. But now that she has come to London to chaperone her younger sisters during their debut season, her family is shoving The Book of Love at her and insisting she discover the meaning of true love.

When she meets Joshua Brayden, the handsome army captain who has captured the heart of every young debutante in London, she wants no part of him. The more determined she is to avoid him, the more determined he is to win her heart. As secrets from her past come back to haunt her and may place her life in danger, Joshua knows he must marry Holly to protect her.

But will Holly dare take a second chance on love? 


Young widow Holly Farthingale has had her self-confidence whittled away by her husband and his family.  Now she tries to hide herself among the older ladies.  She refuses to have anything to do with that pesky book.
Army Captain Joshua Brayden comes from a family of strong characters with a very protective streak.  The beautiful widow needs to break out of her cocoon.  He knows the signs of someone with battle fatigue. 
This historical romance is a lot of fun with some danger.  All the characters are very easy to fall in love with.  The "Book of Love" is what ties the series together as it's passed from one person to the next.  Each book can be read alone,  but they are all fun in different ways so I recommend reading them all.  
Really good fun.


Meara Platt is happily married to her Russell Crowe look-alike husband, and they have two terrific children. She lives in one of the many great towns on Long Island, New York, and loves it, except for the traffic. She has traveled extensively, occasionally lectures and finds time to write. Her favorite place in all the world is England’s Lake District, which may not come as a surprise since many of her stories are set in that idyllic landscape, including her Romance Writers of America Golden Heart award winning story.
