Miss Grace Aubrey, a vicar’s daughter, comes upon a very drunk Earl of Hatton on a lonely country lane and soon determines he is a broken man. When he befriends her, she encourages him to improve his estate. As their relationship blossoms, Grace makes the fatal mistake of declaring her feelings for him, which sends him racing back to London and his old, destructive habits.
Coming home from war with nary a scratch, Trenton, the Earl of Hatton spends most of his days drinking and gambling in an effort to purge the battle memories that haunt him, and soon is banished by his father to rusticate in the country. He encounters Grace under dubious circumstances and discovers teasing the vicar's daughter a delightful distraction even while she tries to help him find renewed purpose to life. However, when his light flirtation becomes something deeper, Trent fears hurting her and returns to London and his former scandalous life. Still, he cannot banish her from his thoughts, or heart. When Grace arrives in to London for the Season, he becomes even more intent on causing scandal.

BIOGRAPHY I love writing about strong, resourceful women in an age where it was thought that women were incapable of taking care of themselves and couldn't own property.
I started writing Regency romance novels as a hobby, and now that I am retired in Port Royal, SC, I am fortunate to be able call this my second career.
Kindle e-books have allowed me to grow as a writer. With each novel, I have made mistakes, but I have learned so much along the way. I enjoy reading my reviews and am thankful that my readers take the time to critique my novels. I am also a member of Romance Writers of America.
I currently live in beautiful Port Royal, SC with my husband.
