A Compromised Lady
A Compromised Lady by Elizabeth Rolls
Elizabeth Rolls is one of the stars of Regency romance and she’s back with an eagerly awaited new novel which her fans will lap up in a single sitting – A Compromised Lady.
As a young girl Miss Dorothea Winslow was a mischievous imp bubbling with happiness, but for the past few years she’s been a shadow of her former self living a quiet life away from the temptations and glittering ballrooms of London. But her father is determined that his daughter, a rich heiress, will find a suitable husband and he orders her to come to London to begin her search. But in London Thea meets a man from her past who could hold the key to her locked heart.
Richard Blakehurst was a former acquaintance of Thea and he’s struck by how reserved she now is. Richard assumes that the reasons she’s so is because of a past tragedy in her life, but Thea, who has found herself attracted to Richard, realizes that all her money will not buy her Richard’s good opinion – or his heart.
You simply cannot beat Elizabeth Rolls! Her characters are exquisite, her dialogue superb and her storytelling prowess just astounding. I always look forward to reading the novels of Ms. Rolls for she is a writer readers can count on to deliver a historical romance that is simply enthralling!
