Always the widow and never again the bride—her one chance of happiness lost...

Once Elizabeth Howard was widowed, that's all anyone saw her as—but it does come with some perks. She's well-respected, of course, and no one is surprised when a dark gentleman leaves the house in the middle of the night. But that's not all he's left, and now, the thirty-four year old widow has a secret to keep for nine months.

Jacob Beauvale thought nothing of his romantic entanglement with the widow Howard last year, but his return to town with a fiancée brings a shock in the shape of a small child with his grey eyes. Gossip starts to fly, as Jacob ignores his intended to pursue a woman with a child—and Elizabeth knows the facts can never be known. He's determined to have the truth. She's sworn all along that it was her late husband's child. Knowledge is in the balance, and neither will give up their ground.

Will the truth of that night be more dangerous if known—and can Elizabeth and Jacob talk long enough to keep their hands off each other?

This full length novel is a steamy Regency romance with a happily ever after, no cliffhangers, and is part of a series that can be read in any order.


Lady Elizabeth Howard is miserable in her marriage,  so after his death she is sure she will remain a Widow forever. There is one little thing that might just change her mind. Our heroine has always had to be strong and rely solely on herself.  
Lord Jacob Beauvale never envisioned collecting a debt could change his life,  or cause so much confusion. He doesn't behave in an honourable way and he will upset many people.  
It's very hard for our hero to find a way out of his predicament. 
An unusual historical romance that is part of a very good series.  You can easily read each book on it's own but you will meet the characters from previous books.  
Great fun.
