First in a new Regency romance series featuring noble gentlemen and the ladies who help them love again.
Widower Benjamin Romilly, earl of Furness, lives a melancholy life. The loss of his wife in childbirth four years before has robbed him of all happiness. He can barely look at his son, who resembles his mother so strongly and is a constant reminder of her loss.
But Jean Saunders, a relative of Benjamin's late wife, erupts into the grief-stricken household to restore order and take Benjamin's son away. From all Jean has heard, she assumes he won't care—but she doesn't know how wrong she is.
As they come together to raise Geoffrey right, their budding attraction is undeniable. And when a nosy neighbor gets in their way, Jean has to face her darkest fears before all is made right.
