Romance Historical

A reluctant heiress resigned to her fate… Mary Elizabeth Edwardes has one of the largest fortune's in England, but has no desire to leave her quiet country existence… and even less to acquire a husband she cannot choose for herself.

A dissolute nobleman bent on retribution… Trapped in a duplicitous existence since scandal destroyed his fortune and family name, Lord Hadley Blanchard has spent the better part of a decade posing as a disaffected exile while spying and seducing in the service of the English Crown.

A dangerous game of seduction, and intrigue… When summoned from abroad by a former lover, Lord Hadley perceives an opportunity for vengeance at last. By employing the full measure of his seductive charm, he woos the ward of the man who destroyed his life, little knowing that winning Mary's fortune will mean risking his own treacherous heart.

Many history students have gone on to write about the period that interested them, in novel form... I've read many great historical mysteries. So why not romance?
(

It would be impossible to believe that romance has not existed in each historical era, so I love it when a writer/author can manage a seamless incorporation done in such a balanced way that you can truly imagine that the write is writing about a true person's experience. Way to go... I'd love to read this book.
