Lady Beresford's LovereBook - 2015
Ella Quinn's bachelors are quite sure of what they want in life-and love-until the right woman opens their eyes. . . After a painful heartbreak, Rupert, the handsome young Earl of Stanstead, has decided that when it comes to love, avoidance is best. Until he meets a woman who makes him forget his plan-and remember his longing for a wife and family. Yet he senses that she too has been hurt, though she attempts to hide her feelings-and more-in the most baffling and alluring way. Intrigued, Rupert is willing to play along, if winning her is the prize. . . Crushed by her late husband's scorn, Vivian, Countess of Beresford, believes she is monstrously undesirable. Sadly childless, she has moved to London resigned to a solitary life. Still, when she encounters Rupert at a masquerade ball, her disguise as Cleopatra emboldens her. Convinced he doesn't recognize her, she begins an after-hours affair with him, always in costume-while allowing him to innocently court the real her by day. But when Rupert makes a shocking choice, will Vivian be able to handle the truth?...--Provided by publisher.
