He never forgot her…
When General Collin Hunt is ordered to take a much-needed holiday, he resigns himself to rest and recreation at his brother’s country estate. But when the only woman he ever loved—and selflessly gave up—shows up as his sister-in-law’s governess, his carefully ordered life is turned inside out.
She’ll never forgive him…
When Erienne Stone defied her family and fled her life of privilege, she never expected to be reunited with the man who’d abandoned her more than a decade before. But Lucy, Duchess of Claringdon, is a hard woman to say no to, even when Erienne’s heart is in danger of breaking all over again.
A meddling matchmaker may be the key to their second chance…
After a decade of pain and heartache, can two star-crossed lovers trust the truth in their own hearts?
I’m generally a fan of Valerie Bowman but this book was a huge disappointment. The total interactions between the hero/heroine can be counted on one hand but yet still manages to squeeze in several sex scenes. The plot was unoriginal and the writing uninspired. The characters had almost no development beyond he was a hardworking, dutiful soldier and she loved him. It’s just overall, not good. Save yourself the $2.99 because this one is not worth the time or money.
Mr.Hunt I Presume
This is the 10th in the series. It can be read alone, but the series is so good that you’ll want to read them all. Collin and Erienne were in love when they were young but war separated them. Then years later Erienne became a governess in Collins brothers home and Collins sister-in-law Lucy puts her match making skills to work.
Sweet quick read.
Sweet & Endearing!
I absolutely devoured this book starting with the first page. Beautifully written and absolutely charming second Chance romance. From the lady of the house Lucy Hunt and her inability to stop her meddling matchmaking, to the adorable little Lady Mary and her brother Ralph, as well as Erienne Stone and Collin Hunt our heroine and hero who are still in love with with the other even after fourteen years one month and sixteen days that they have been parted. Sigh inducing, Endearing, sumptuous, with heartfelt emotions.
Valerie Bowman writes a full length novel or a short story or now a novella. All with the same intensity of emotions, same depth in characters, same subtlety in feelings... She is a supreme commander of words, a true markswoman I must say, her words find the target in our hearts. Bullseye, every time. Loved it!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
