About this ebook

When Philippa first debuted in Society, her black hair and sapphire eyes earned her the nickname “Lady Twilight,” as well as the attention of Everett Cavendish, the Marquess of Hartington. But when Everett’s parents objected to the match, the spurned Philippa married the Earl of Essex instead.

After unexpectedly becoming a widow, Philippa found she missed the pleasures of her marriage bed. She is re-entering Society with a new aim in mind: to take a lover, or several. But among the many men vying for her attention, she did not expect to find Everett.

The Marquess of Hartington had given up hope of being with Philippa, but when circumstances and a bet places her back in his social circle, Everett realizes that he might have a second chance. Defying his parents and Philippa’s expectations, Everett braves her wrath in order to prove himself worthy of her trust again. Now he just has to prove it to her.

I thought that this was a very good book. The writing was well done and the story juicy and engaging. I have to say that I really liked Philippa. She was no milk toast, handwringing Miss and that greatly appealed to me. I wish I could say the same for Everett but while I did warm up to him, I freely admit that he was not my favorite hero. I blame this on me much more than on the book. I find it very hard to forgive and forget. Still, I genuinely enjoyed the chemistry between this couple and the steam that they generated. Intense emotions, tension, drama, turmoil and heat provide a solid and enticing base for this couple's relationship and story to build and unfold on. This is my forthright, volitional review.

A second chance romance that will have you smiling and blushing. Everett might have thought he lost Philippa but once she is back looking for a husband again, he is all in. I was glad to see him step up to the plate and not let his parents dictate who he wanted again.
