She chooses the Duke of Sutbridge, who happens to be the man that she fell in love with 10 years ago. Unfortunately for Caroline, Sutbridge wants marriage. He has been regretting his lose of her since she married.
Who will win this battle of wills? Can Caroline tear down her walls to take the love that Sutbridge is offering?
I really enjoyed this short story. The author was able to convey the story and not have it feel rushed (it helped that the h&h had a previous and ongoing relationship). I hope that the author continues to write historical romances as I will definitely be a buyer!
