Theresa Jennings strayed from the path of propriety as a younger woman, though now she'll do anything to secure her child's eventual acceptance on the fringes of polite society. Theresa will even make peace with the titled brother who turned his back on her when she needed him most.
Matthew Belmont is a widower who's been lonely too long. He sees Theresa as a woman paying far too high a price for mistakes long past, and as a lady given too little credit for turning her life around. Theresa is enthralled by Matthew's combination of honorable intentions and honest passion, but then trouble comes calling, and it's clear somebody wants to ruin any chance Theresa and Matthew have for a happily ever after.
Contains mature themes.

Slow and sweet
All the books in the series so far have gentle understanding tolerant men and women that need rescuing. The story is mostly the relationship progressing with a little bit of Danger involved. The love scenes are not detailed or overly sensuous in my opinion. Overall this Story was slow and sweet, romantic with a hint of danger excitement at the end. The narrator was very good.
