Genre: Regency Period, England
Maltilda, a beautiful young widow with two sons, has had no regrets over her marriage, even though she had jilted her fianci, Viscount Miles Heath, and eloped with his best friend. Returning to England, she discovers that Miles has never married and he seems to still have strong feelings for her. She is caught up in a delightful courtship which makes her understand that had Miles treated her with such regard 10 years before, she would never have been able to love another.
Miles Heath has courtship plans right enough, but his ideas are all about revenge, not love. He risks losing her again by foolishly ignoring his hearts yearnings.
Ms. Oliver spins a tale that is both touching and heartwarmingly funny in its treatment of a flawed hero who learns the hard way to listen to his heart. (May, 240 pp., $4.99)
