It goes together with another book called Precious Jewel which I think is also going to be re-issued and links in with a further five books: Dark Angel, Lord Carew's Bride, the Famous Heroine, the Plumed Bonnet and finally Christmas Bride. Its brilliant news that all her old books may start to re-appear in the future as they are all wonderful and very original.
This one is a charming story about Abigail Gardiner who turns up on the doorstep of her very distant relative, the Earl of Severn, looking for a reference. He is not the elderly man she expects but turns out to be young, handsome and in need of a wife to get his mother and sisters off his back. On an impulse they marry and the story is set during the first weeks of their marriage. She has a secret she is reluctant to tell him. The more she falls in love with him, the more scared she is to admit it to him in case it spoils their relationship which is becoming increasingly precious to her. He thinks he has married a quiet mousy creature but finds out she is not at all what he expected. There are some laugh out loud moments and some very tender ones too. A really lovely book and highly recommended.
Overall the book is good, but ended a little abruptly. We know Abby starts to feel unwell, which usually indicates pregnancy in these books, but that is not the case, and it doesn't explain this.
