A gentleman’s gentleman is expected to keep the secrets of his master.
Loyal butler, James Bates, harbors a scandalous secret of his own. One which remains buried deep beneath his professional demeanor. He desires only to serve in obscurity without inviting further scandal into his life. When the sweet, young Anna enters the household as the new ladies’ maid, he discovers a passion he had long banished hope of ever possessing.
Bates treats Anna with kindness, and although his regard for the young woman is far from virtuous, he maintains propriety. When Anna returns his affections, it seems his happiness will be complete. That is until accounts of the horrid actions of his youth rise from the past to steal away everything he loves—including his beloved Anna.
Can love survive anything? You will have to read Seducing Winter's Gentleman by Kirsten S. Blacketer is book 4 in the Thieves Of Winter series to find out. Though in a series this book can be read as a standalone. What I so enjoyed about this regency story is that the main characters were servants in the household. Kristen has such a way of writing that in this story it is sad, a tad dark with a bit of mystery as well as romance so it keeps you intrigued and did not disappoint. She truly is a talented and creative writer. This story has secrets, respect, loyalty, duty, forbidden love, devotion, murder, misunderstandings, kindness, a new friend, a missing person, contradiction, death, reuniting, orphaned and love. I highly recommend you read this book!!
