Eight yrs later, heroine is still hurt by Hero's betrayal but she hides that from him & the fact that she's still in love with him. Hero has also been secretly in love with heroine for years & is now determined to win her this time. But big misunderstandings get in the way.
This George historical was a sufficient read. It was a quick read. Although it wasn't emotionally gripping, it engaged my emotions enough. Sexual chemistry & love scenes were good. Big misunderstandings were typical romance-novel Big Misunderstandings & could've been easily resolved it Hero & heroine just talked it over a lot sooner.
