    Splendid writing!

    Rose Deverill enjoys being the Wicked Widow, after a forced marriage to an elderly duke, now she’s free to do as she pleases, and she will never marry again, unless Philip Flagstaff, the new Earl of Cumberland, asks her. Oh that Philip would want the same thing, they are so well-matched, their torrid affair doesn’t seem likely to end soon, even though Philip’s never lasted that long before. Rose is under pressure because she could lose her son, who soon will be turning six; it wouldn’t be proper for a future duke to have a very merry widow as a mother, and Rose could be pressured to marry. Rose and Philip have been involved for two years, but Philip will never forgive himself for the death of his beloved and perfect brother, and he wants his younger brother to inherit the title he never wanted, not himself; he feels he is unworthy of the title. Oh the sublime, incandescent, luminous, impossibly gorgeous prose, the exquisite details, the wonderful dialogues. While the sex scenes were lovely, I got the idea that Rose and Philip were sexually compatible, but were so many pages really necessary, and her loving him, and him being a selfish, unthinking, spineless twit, the pig-headed idiot; I wanted so slap him and kick him in the pants, I wanted to shake her and tell her to forget that coward, that weakling, and get on with her life. Somebody grew a backbone, and it was something to behold, alas but for a fleeting moment. I was quietly seething throughout most of the book, and it took me longer to read because I had to set it aside because I was so furious at Philip, the spineless coward. I have to admit I don’t do angst very well. Philip obviously needed professional help, which did not exist at the time, and I couldn’t help but wonder if people with his emotional struggles made themselves, and everyone around them, miserable. Then I started speculating if that’s what Ms. Evans had in mind to show us, still it didn’t make it enjoyable for me. I could not love as Rose did, I don’t have the patience or the fortitude for that type of the heartache that was Philip. Ms. Evans’ prose is indescribably gorgeous, as smooth as a rose petal, as delicate as the finest lace. But Philip! On the other hand, the mystery part was terrific, and I would never have suspected who the villain was. I also wondered it this book was first meant as a novella, because in my opinion, it would have worked better had it been shorter, and maybe have fewer pages of Philip’s “woe is me”. The ending, while nice, felt rushed to me, as Philip had a sudden epiphany; although it was believable, it happened much too quickly. The writing is truly splendid, but Philip!!! I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

    Fantastic Historical Romance

    A Love To Remember by Bronwen Evans is an awesome read. Ms Evans has gifted historical romance fans with yet another amazing story. This is a well-written book and a nice smooth read. The characters are phenomenal and perfect for Philip and Rose's tale. There's plenty of action, drama, sizzle and suspense that kept this reader up way past her bedtime. I totally LOVED reading this book and look forward to reading many more from the talented Bronwen Evans in the future. A Love To Remember is book 7 of The Disgraced Lords Series but can easily be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I received from NetGalley.

    Definitely a Love to Remember!

    Philip and Rose—how my heart hurt for both of them: Philip because of his mistaken sense of guilt, honor and the debt he felt he owed his dead brother—which didn’t allow for a life for him that included love and happiness. And Rose because of her sad arranged marriage that she intended to never repeat after her elderly husband’s death—and for her unrequited love for Philip. The yearnings and inner struggles of both Philip and Rose made for a very sad, complex courtship that balanced finely between defying society’s rules and living up to what was expected of them. I was proud of their strengths and determination to do the right thing while paying homage to their love. This, indeed, was a love to remember!

    An author to remember!

    Rose is a headstrong, feisty, independent rebel. And, that is what I absolutely loved about her! She also had a sweet and compassionate side that endeared her to me even more. Philip is a grieving man who desperately needs the sensitivity, understanding and passion that Rose offers. Rose and Philip are complex and interesting characters that you can't help but root for. The plot moves at a good pace, has lots of depth and is very engaging. Evans does a great job of making this second chance at love tale come alive for the reader. *I received a complimentary ARC of this book from NetGalley & Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept in order to read and provide a voluntary, unbiased and honest review, should I choose to do so.

    Historical Romance

    Phillips feels unworthy of his Earldom but promises himself to do his brother proud taking up the mantle. In his mind that means never marrying or begetting a child that will be the future Earl. For two years he and Rose, a widowed duchess, have an affair. He holds true to his resolve wanting an affair forever as she begins to want marriage and children – with him. Whether or not the two will end up with a HEA depends on whether or not Phillip will come to his senses and learn to live for himself in joy rather than remain feeling guilty about the death of his brother Robert. Thank you to NetGalley and Random House-Loveswept – this is my honest review
