Lady Georgina Hawthorne has always known she must marry well. After years of tirelessly planning every detail of her debut season, she is poised to be a smashing success and have her choice of eligible gentlemen.
With money and powerful business connections but no title, Colin McCrae is invited everywhere but accepted nowhere. He intends to marry someday, but when he does it will not be to a shallow woman like Lady Georgina, whose only concerns appear to be status and appearance.
But beneath her flawless exterior, Georgina's social aspirations stem from a shameful secret she is desperately trying to keep hidden--and that Colin is too close to discovering. Drawn to each other despite their mutual intent to avoid association, is the realization of their dreams worth the sacrifices they'll be forced to make?
This is the second book in the Hawthorne House series by this author. It carries on from the first book but if you haven't read the first book all is not lost. You will click what the "shameful secret," is but there are enough other things going on in the book to keep it interesting. I read this book in a day. It's neither too long, or a hard story to follow. Will I remember this book in the months to come..........well I finally clicked I had read the first book in the series after a while, but couldn't remember the full story behind it; so I am guessing this will be the same.
Stars out of 5 : 4 A great book to read on a summer's day or on a cold winter's day. Not too taxing on the brain and enough going on in the book to keep you interested.
