About this ebook

BONUS: 2nd epilogue included!

A grieving widower. A strong lady. And a little girl who needs them both.

After losing his wife in an accident, GRAHAM ASTOR, DUKE OF KENSINGTON, decides that love is not worth the risk of having his heart broken all over again. Even his little daughter he keeps at a distance, afraid to hurt her with the darkness that now lives in his heart. Since he is unable to be the father she deserves, he vows to find her a mother who will heal her little heart.

At a garden party, Graham spots a young woman with a shy smile tending lovingly to her little cousins…and he knows his duty.

As the black sheep of her family, ROSABEL LANDER has no illusions about love. After her parents’ deaths, her aunt and uncle reluctantly took her in, demanding nothing short of complete obedience. Unable to live down her past, Rosabel only wishes for one thing: freedom.

However, before she dares to take the first step toward an independent future, a cold-hearted stranger asks for her hand in marriage…and as the obedient niece, Rosabel cannot refuse.

Will Rosabel find love after all? Or will the memory of Graham's late wife keep them both from finding happiness?

This Beauty and the Beast story by a USA TODAY bestselling author proves that the past can never be forgotten, but its regrets can be forgiven.

Actually I loved the story, BUT to have a word crossed out and not removed from the book was a first, whomever proof read this book did a poor job as you read on and words are where they don't belong, this seems to be a problem in all books no matter the author.

Bree Wolf has created a rich, memorable plot with in-depth characters. Some have been critical that it was too slow and did not have enough passion. I disagree! It is reflective of real life...where it takes time to fully know someone, to understand how their past may still drive their present and seek to control their future. An unconditional love is what Bree has shown us; in spite of how angry Graham Astor, Duke of Kensington, responds to his untouched new bride, Rosabel, she seeks to see past his defenses for Rosabel has come to love and cherish his motherless daughter Georgiana as her own child. And, previously shy, unfailingly obedient to her non-caring uncle and aunt guardians , Rosabel evolves into a self assured, strong woman worthy to be called a Duchess as she strengthens herself to confront her husband to acknowledge his deep love of his daughter. I also liked that Bree lets us know what goes on inside Graham's thoughts as he struggles with his grief and a secret that Rosabel has yet to learn. Their passion is deep, but thankfully behind closed Doors! Thank you Bree Wolf for your wonderful, clean Regency Romance. Patricia J.

About the author

USA Today bestselling author, Bree Wolf has always been a language enthusiast (though not a grammarian!) and is rarely found without a book in her hand or her fingers glued to a keyboard. Trying to find her way, she has taught English as a second language, traveled abroad and worked at a translation agency as well as a law firm in Ireland. She also spent loooong years obtaining a BA in English and Education and an MA in Specialized Translation while wishing she could simply be a writer. Although there is nothing simple about being a writer, her dreams have finally come true.

"A big thanks to my fairy godmother!"

Currently, Bree has found her new home in the historical romance genre, writing Regency novels and novellas. Enjoying the mix of fact and fiction, she occasionally feels like a puppet master (or mistress? Although that sounds weird!), forcing her characters into ever-new situations that will put their strength, their beliefs, their love to the test, hoping that in the end they will triumph and get the happily-ever-after we are all looking for.
