About this ebook

Cara Bernay has never fit in. At loose ends in 1881 London after a near tragedy costs her a job, she befriends a carefree artist. With his help, she begins planning a new life and developing her own artistic talent. But soon Cara finds herself at odds with the artist's brother--a handsome but arrogant earl forcing his brother back to a "respectable" life.

Henry Burke, the Earl of Morestowe, feels the weight of growing financial burdens. His younger brother is the one person who can save their family, and Henry needs him back home. Despite misgivings about Cara's mysterious background, Henry sees she's a positive influence on his brother and on Henry's young ward, and he strikes a deal with her to return with them to their estate.

But the family has their own secrets, and when Cara, drawn ever closer to Henry, stumbles onto the truth, she must choose between following her heart and pursuing a bold plan that could bring disaster.

This is book three in the the London Beginnings series, However I would say it is a stand alone book, since it is the first in the series I have read and had no problem keeping up. I would say I probably missed some history in the Bernay sisters, but not enough to be confused, probably just enough to miss a few things. Cara Bernay is a beautiful, artistic girl who feels she has never fit in or lived up to her sisters expectations. When a near tragic experience sends her home she must learn what it is she is destined to be. Henry and Langham Burke are polar opposites, even though they are brothers and probably have more in common than they think. When Langham befriends Cara they never expect what all is in store for them. Henry is suffering from a broken heart and to many responsibilities, so Cara is not anything he expected. This book is full of mystery, surprises, romance and more. If you enjoy reading historical romance books you will enjoy this one.
