this book has kept me engrossed from beginning to end and answered a lot of questions about giles and his life when young once again rose gordon has surpassed herself with her talent of mixing so many different emotions into her story lines ive felt pity anger and laughed through this book and giles has become my hero to understand what i mean by this you will have to read the book but theres a lot more to giles than we were lead to beleive in secrets od a viscount a must read for rose gordon fans and those who enjoy historical romance with a splattering of humour and different emotions and of course a happy. ending
Our Heroine: Lucy Whitaker, a servant girl, has a past which included being ruined by a young lord who got her pregnant - her sweet, inventive son, Seth, is the result. Seth is forever attempting to find his mama a husband so he can have a father. Once he meets Simon, who was beaten and left wounded near the cottage where he lives with his mother, Seth believes he might have finally succeeded in finding himself a father.
The Story: When Seth tells Lucy he has found a wounded gentleman near their home, they drag Simon to their home so they can nurse him back to health. When Simon is asked who Lucy can send for, he tells her to send for Giles who is nearby at a house party. Giles is more than eager to get away from the house party because social situations are very awkward for him. Although he can't imagine why Simon would send for him since they barely speak, he takes advantage of the situation and immediately heads to Lucy's home.
Once Giles and Lucy meet, there is an immediate spark between the two of them. However, he is very reticent and Lucy, for her part doesn't trust young lords at all. Little does she know that much of Giles' reticence is due to his lack of a normal social life having only one true friend in his life and never, absolutely never, having been with a woman - not even to share a kiss. To complicate matters, Simon has a crush on Lucy so Giles determines to do nothing that would give the appearance of encroaching on his brother's preserves.
When Lucy loses her job in the village and cannot find another one due to her tarnished reputation, both brothers insist she come with them to London and work with their mother in her lending library. As times goes by, all the relationships get sorted out. Giles begins to understand a lot of things he believed about his life might not have been true and some truths are indeed a little astonishing. Lucy begins to realize that perhaps not all young lords are selfish and lacking in gentlemanly qualities. Both Giles and Simon are quality and loving and kind. Which one will Lucy choose? I rooted for Giles because he was such of an underdog - yet, handsome and super sweet. He was/is not your typical regency rake hero - rather, he was much better. He eventually learned he didn't have to be fast to catch his lady.
