  • A delight

    The romance of Elizabeth and Colin is a gradual build up of layers of moments, glances and friendship.. The wonderful Westcott family are all here to add their own moments to a really sweetly written May December romance...Enjoy

  • Slow-burning younger man historical romance

    Lady Elizabeth Overton is a 35 year old widow. Colin Handrich, Lord Hodges is nine years her junior. When they meet at the Westcott Christmas party the age gap is very apparent and yet there is an undeniable pull between them. Both of them are looking for a spouse but at widely different ends of the spectrum. Colin is looking amongst the eighteen year old debutantes whereas Elizabeth is looking for a sensible, dependable man, very different from her husband. When they meet again in London during the season they rely on each other for sensible conversation and laughter and glorious waltzes but as they both move inexorably towards marriage with other people will they realise they are perfect together before it's too late? Hoo boy did this start slowly. It was practically halfway in before I got engaged with the storyline and the characters. But when it did ... it pulled me in like a rip tide. From two faceless, characterless mannequins Colin and Elizabeth transformed into living breathing characters, full of hopes and fears and anxieties. There were plotting relatives and sinister Dukes, society balls, fake engagements, fisticuffs in the library and family secrets galore. By the end I was totally invested in Colin and Ellizabeth's May to December romance (although that is a wild exaggeration) and the way in which their love may have been instantaneous but their relationship was built on friendship and trust. If you like historical romances, if you have liked Mary Balogh's other Westcott romances I recommend sticking with this novel, it pays in the end. I received a free copy of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
