ForevereBook - 2017
Hayden Henley left England at age twenty, whisked away by his parents after a deadly duel that nearly cost him his life. In the intervening years, tragedy repeatedly pummeled him, and it's taken him an entire decade to return home. He arrives to find he's lost everything: his title, his lands, his fortune, his good name. He's bitter and driven to reclaim what has always been his? Helen Barnes is a penniless spinster whose life-despite her best efforts-has never moved in the direction she planned. While she only ever hoped to marry a stable, kind fellow and live a normal life, she's been forced to care for her scandal-ridden father instead. She would give anything to obtain the home and family of her dreams, but when she meets dashing and dangerous Hayden, she begins to wonder how she could have ever assumed a common man and ordinary existence would be enough to make her happy? Hayden would never shackle himself to her though. He's determined to make up for lost time by marrying as high as he's able. But some connections are simply too potent to ignore and-sometimes-Fate has other ideas. With love in the balance and family secrets finally laid bare, Helen might just turn out to be the woman Hayden has always been so desperate to find?.
