Years ago, when Isabelle Mears was still a young miss too infatuated to know better, she surrendered her innocence to a dishonorable man. Though ruined and cast out from society, she has worked hard to shelter her illegitimate son, Jack. Having sworn off men in her quiet but dignified life, Isabelle is unprepared for the deep longing that rips through her when a handsome stranger rescues her rambunctious six-year-old from the pounding ocean surf.

George Upperton is a man in trouble with debts, women, and a meddling family. He is, by all accounts, the last gentleman on earth Isabelle should be drawn to. But loneliness is a hard mistress, and caution gives way to desire . . . even though Isabelle is convinced that happiness can’t be found in the arms of such a devilish rogue. Only when Jack is kidnapped does Isabelle discover the true depth of George’s devotion—and how far a good man will go to fight for the woman whose love is all that matters.


 I like historical romances once in awhile because they are a slow moving and soft fall book to slip into when you need something a little less thrilling. I think the point of historical romances is to slow things down and enjoy, savor its flavor.
Isabelle and George are both flawed but who isn't these days? I like a little reality added once in awhile. I really liked that George wasn't stuck up or overly flamboyant. I don't know why many writers do this to males in their historical novels, I suppose its the image that comes to mind. Isabelle isn't a swooning, broken helpless female that can't function without the sole support of the male lead either. Isabelle and George can stand up on their own, they have very real issues and very real emotions. I really came to find it refreshing and more than that I found it more real than any historical novel that I've read in a really long time.
Way to go Ashlyn!
