Book Description (Courtesy of Amazon)
Anna, a widow battling alcohol addiction is convinced she is worthless unless she bears a child. She hires a lover to prove she is not frigid and may marry again and have children. Devlyn, sterile from an accident, has returned from an assignment for the Foreign Office and inadvertently becomes Anna’s lover. Anna and Devlyn join forces to protect an innocent child from a blackmailer. Can they come to terms not only with their feelings for each other but whether they will allow society to dictate the true significance of life?
An usual tale of addiction, self-doubt, tragedy, passion, betrayal, blackmail, secrets, and finding true love and romance. Powerful and compelling with a few twists and turns. Strongly recommended for any fans of Historical Romance and for those of romance in general.
The characters are well developed, endearing and engaging. The storyline is unique, compelling, and very intriguing. I enjoyed the way the heroine and the hero learn to deal with their self-doubt, guilt and grief to find their HEA. Well done!
