Redemption -  January 2016

When Lizzie is caught in a compromising position with one of the ton’s most eligible bachelors, she expects her brother to be less than gracious. What she doesn’t anticipate is finding herself cast out of the home and sent off to live with her aunt in the wilds of Derbyshire, in a place she has never heard of. Heart-broken, humiliated, and nearly destitute, she has to rely upon the grace and favour of her rather impish aunt, whose eccentricities are more than a challenge to live with. However, with no money to return to the life she leaves behind, she is forced to settle into her new life fully aware that she left a very large part of herself in London.

 

Ben tries his upmost to find the woman who captured something inside him he had long since forgotten ever existed.
