Anne Barton: One wild winter's eve

Anne Bartonin historiallisen Honeycote-viihderomaanisarjan viimeisessä osassa pengotaan yhteiskunnan luokkaeroja kevyehköllä otteella: One wild winter's eve (Forever, 2015; ISBN 978-1-4555-5182-8).

Kovin paljon romaanista ei jäänyt mieleen, ja teossarjan edellisistä osista mieleenjäänyt huumori tuntui tästä romaanista puuttuvan lähes tykkänään.

As the Duke of Huntford's sister, Lady Rose Sherbourne follows the rules of well-bred society. Always chaperoned. Never engaging in unseemly behavior. Well, except for that one summer, years ago. And yet she's never been able to forget that handsome stable master or the stolen moments they shared. She's always wondered what might have happened if he hadn't disappeared without a word.

Now she's about to find out. Charles Holland never expected to see Lady Rose again. And yet the years haven't lessened his devotion-or his desire-in any way. Despite their differences in class, Charles cannot stop himself from wanting to possess her. But as they uncover one intimate secret after another about her family, they realize that, this time, their love may come at a very dear price.
