4.0 out of 5 stars Georgie Lee is a fantastic writer of historical romance!, 22 Sept. 2014
This review is from: Rescued from Ruin (Mills & Boon Historical) (Paperback)
A stirring and mesmerising tale of powerful secrets, old passions and dangerous deceptions, Rescued From Ruin is the second enthralling Harlequin Historical romance from fast rising star Georgie Lee!

Cecelia Thompson’s return to England – after years spent in Virginia as the wife of a plantation owner- has set tongues wagging in polite society! With her cousin Miss Theresa Fields in tow, the beautiful young widow has told her old friends that she wanted her American relation to experience the Season in London. Yet, Cecelia’s smiles and carefree attitude belie a shameful secret that could jeopardise her entire future! After her marriage, she was left penniless, vulnerable and alone. No longer welcome in Virginia or in the house which she had called home for years, Cecelia had no other option but to leave America behind and come back to England. Having pinned all of her hopes on finding a husband either for herself or her cousin, Cecelia is desperate to keep up appearances and to ensure that nobody discovers the truth about the less than fortuitous circumstances behind her return. But when Cecelia claps eyes on the man she has never been able to forget, Randall Cheltenham, Marquess of Falconbridge, she soon realises that her life has just got even more complicated!

Randall had been devastated when Cecelia had left England and married another man. Her departure had left him heartbroken, devastated and determined never to put his heart on the line ever again. In the intervening years since Cecelia had left for Virginia, Randall had become a dissolute rake whose entire life was spent drinking, gambling and bedding bored widows and society matrons. Love is an emotion that he has completely vanquished from his life, however, Cecelia’s unexpected return makes him wonder whether he had been too hasty in building impenetrable walls around his heart…

Randall knows that he should keep his distance from Cecelia. Getting involved with her once more will only lead to more heartbreak and he isn’t prepared to endure any more pain and anguish because of her. However, when Randall discovers that Cecelia is on the lookout for a husband, he cannot help but feel jealous when he realizes that he is not even in the running! Cecelia was the only woman who has ever managed to get under his skin and all the old feelings which he has kept bottled up for so long do not seem to have gone away.

Will Randall and Cecelia give their love another try? Or has too much water gone under the bridge for the two of them to ever have a future together?

Rescued from Ruin is a fantastic historical romance that will touch your heart and keep you turning the pages late into night. Evocative, poignant, compelling and absolutely impossible to resist, Rescued from Ruin is a wonderful story of second chances, long-buried emotions and the healing power of love that will linger in your mind and heart long after the last chapter.

Cecelia is a wonderfully believable heroine whose strength, dignity and resourcefulness is admirable and Randall is a gorgeous brooding hero I defy any woman to resist!

Georgie Lee continues to go from strength to strength with her wonderful Regency novels and I cannot wait to read more outstanding historical romances from her talented pen!
