Signet Regency, 1998, ISBN 0-451-19147-1
Gerard Percy, the new Earl of Wanstead, has recently returned from Canada to take up residence at Thornwood Hall. The only fact that mars his happiness is that the former owner's widow still lives there with her two children. And that widow, Christina, once upon a time jilted Gerard in order to marry his wealthier cousin--and sent him running off, broken hearted, to Canada to seek his fortune.
Even those readers who've never bought a Regency before will want to read
this one--if for no other reason than to see that a good author can
distinguish herself from the rest regardless of genre. Those of us who have
discovered her before will want this one to add to the many others on our
keeper shelves to be read and reread."
