Gh her senses flame at the sight of her handsome bridegroom she cannot forget his abrupt abandonment and long silence But before she will surrender to him his heritage and her heart Trevor will have to vie with half the young bloods of London in an ardent courtship of his own wife I'll go with Suri's Review Even my liking for the hero Trevor was on off He was easily swayed and at the same time tried to protect Caitlyn I would have liked to read pages on how Caitlyn manages to turn round the estate The hero could have groveled a bit Even after coming to know about how his family conspired to keep Caitlyn's letters from him Why was he so uick to jump to the wrong conclusion? The book hints at some adultery regarding Trevor's parents The Countess and Earl of Wyndham but it's left unsaid The epilogue made me think that mayhap Trevor's brother Marcus would get his own story but I don't think its happenedAll in all a decent read which I wouldn't mind reading again a few years later when I would've forgotten all about this book

R leaving Caitlin well provided for hastily escapes from it by enlisting for the Peninsula and urging her to seek an annulmentA PASSIONATE REUNIONSeven years have transformed Caitlin into a nonpareil of style and charm adept in the enrichment of her long lost husband's estate Thou Trevor was a young pup who believed and trusted his family He honestly believed that Caitlin was in on the wager by the unscrupulous gambler that he lost to He did ditch Caitlin for several years but he still supported her and he was sure that an annulmentdivorce would proceed and she would agree to it as well However Trevor was wrong about that and so much In Trevor’s defense he trusted his family to know what was best and he barely knew Caitlin – other than she was related to that gambler Why would he think the best of her? Okay and Trevor seems to be slightly superficial as well but that really isn’t surprising in the whole scheme of things He didn’t think much of Caitlin’s looks before leaving but now she is a very attractive to him I’m not sure that he would have believed Caitlin if he didn’t see similarities bw the two though but they are there Trying not to spoil things I thoroughly enjoyed the way Caitlin had grown up and showed that she didn’t need Trevor yet realized that in that day in age he still held all the power I also liked that Trevor grew up as well and he was willing to put her first in all things There is a bit of malicious machination thrown in to the mix as well but a wise old aunt seems to nip some things in the bud before they take root Yes even Trevor fell victim to some of his suspicions about Caitlin but you know what will prevail in the end However it is so great when he is proven wrong and doesn’t have much to say In the end Caitlin proves to be a very giving and forgiving heroine just as the wise aunt advised Trevor This was a nice read and even though Trevor irked me at times it was understandable given his youth and past suffering before he met Caitlin He grew up fabulously and Caitlin proved her strength over and over I also really enjoyed the fact that all wasn’t happy families afterwards No uick make up w those that sought to hurt whether ignorantly or spitefully
