Returning from India
To a forbidden liaison…
Joshua Ashburton hasn’t seen his brother for years and heads straight to his London townhouse. A ball is underway filled with the cream of society, including one Lady Elizabeth Hummingford. Captivated by her vitality and sparkle, he’s shocked to learn she’s all but engaged to his brother! It’s a loveless, convenient match, but how can Josh persuade her she’s chosen the wrong brother when he’s set to return abroad?
I received a copy of this book from Mills and Boon via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
Two brothers separated after the death of their parents meet again in adulthood. Beth has to marry Leo for the sake of her family. When she meets his brother Joshua, she wonders if she can go through with it. Joshua knows Beth must marry for money, but he can’t quell his attraction to her. He doesn’t want to hurt his brother, but surely he deserves to marry for love?
This is a romance full of passion and unexpected emotion. Beth and Joshua are lovely characters who deserve happiness together. Leo is harder to get to know, but a chance meeting with Annabelle Beth’s sister reveals his good qualities.
This is a conflicted but ultimately happy romance with a mysterious twist at the end.
