In this particular novel, the future Duke of Vail, Nick, and Mary (a country miss) is wed in secret - a ceremony they perform themselves but thankfully record in the old church register. Their marriage is consummated that eve just hours before Nick's honorbound departure to rejoin the war. Through the years Mary stays true to Nick and anxiously looks forward to his return...
It took seven long years but he finally returned...battlescarred and terribly unhappy. Through a series of tear jerking scenes, Nick gains back the love of his life and as well as the son he never knew existed.
This is one of those books I just couldn't put down!
From the first scenes we meet the young lovers as they have to say goodbye. They have an unforgettable lovemaking, exchange their vows and in the process concieve the one bond that sustain and bind them forever.
Nick goes off to war and Mary is left with their son and noone to turn to after her father's death. In desperation, she turns to the one man who vows to ruine her and the two men she loves most.
Years after Nick returns from battle scarred physically and emotionally, he learns Mary is in need of help and goes to her rescue. After that, what begins is a plot full of twists and intrigue. They fight together to get their son back and also rekindle a love that never ended.
HIS SECRET DUCHESS is one wild roller coaster that never leaves you bored for a moment. I have read it many times and will read it whenever I am in the mood to witness the power of love. Highly, highly recommended!
