A storm. A stranger. A secret.
After a storm leaves handsome stranger Bryn Morgan stranded at Charlie’s farmhouse she plans to keep her distance! But the night forges a bond between —until Bryn reveals is, in fact, Lord Carlisle! Can he show Charlie that their differences can bring them closer?
A romantic tale of two people from differing backgrounds who find a connection in adversity.
Charlie is grief-stricken after the sudden loss of her much-loved grandmother, Bryn is reeling from trying to unravel his criminal uncle’s latest scam. A storm and an injured dog brings them together, but when Charlie finds out why Bryn is in Australia, she wants nothing to do with him. Circumstances and Bryn’s caring attitude change her mind, but trust doesn’t come easy. Bryn’s generous gesture gives Charlie a way out but he is keeping secrets from her, and romantic deeds may not be the way to win this woman’s heart.
An easy to read romance, the plot is rooted in fairytale rather than reality, but if you accept this, the sentiments are genuine, the dogs lovable and Bryn, a gentleman. The characters are realistic even if their situation is unlikely and there is the desired happy ever after a fable like this demands.
Enjoyable summer-reading for the romantics.
