This is the story of star-crossed lovers seperated ten years ago by fate and family only to cross paths again. This is a story of unrequited love and passion that will keep you glued to it till the bitter, but happy end.
Miranda is forced to leave her American home and travel to London to save her sister's from financial ruin. In other words, find a wealthy and titled husband. She is reluctant because her heart has always belonged to her one and only true love, Alex. The two fell in love as teenagers but because he was half Shawnee Indian and she white, their love was doomed.
By a twist of fate, they are reuinted while docked in the same port. The best is yet to come. This novel is fraught with jealousy, anger, love, passion, and hope. Not your usual overused storyline.
Definitely one for the keeper shelf!
Alex Hadden, sea captain and enormously successful businessman, encounters Miranda, and his past, on his way to England. He learns that the woman that once held his heart is now on the hunt for a titled husband. Alex, however, as the grandson of a treasonous British General cannot offer Miranda the future she seeks.
Miranda soon becomes the season's Incomparable. She is wildly successful as Alex watches from afar. Miranda has her pick of noblemen, and the opportunity to fulfill her promise to her sisters or follow her heart. Regardless of her choice, the price is high.
Fans of Historical Romance will enjoy this book. As a Cathy Maxwell fan, I wish I could say that this was her best effort. The miscommunication between the hero and heroine made me want to smack their heads together. In fact, I found myself rooting for Alex's main competitor in the race for Miranda's hand. While there is always a level of frustration and anticipation in the quest for true love, these two pushed my limit. I hope the next installment in this trilogy is a better reflection of Ms. Maxwell's talent.

I liked Miranda and Alex. They acted how they did because of their own issues. Please remember Miranda was 15 years old when she met Alex the first time. How could we expect for her to leave her Father and Sisters and go off to live such a different type of life.
Very Good Effort!
In the Azores, Captain Alex Haddon of the Warrior is shocked to see Miranda is here. He never forgot or forgave her for what happened between them ten years ago. At a party in her honor, he is nasty to her, but also insists they are married even if it is Pawnee style and they never consummated their vows. A drunken Alex abducts Miranda. As they sail to London they argue until they make love for the first time.
In London, Miranda resides in the home of Alex's business partner while he refuses to see her. Instead he tells the wife of his partner to find her an aristocrat husband. Miranda cries as he has left her again, but vows to marry well for her sisters' sakes.
The strong lead couple with a solid support cast enhancing the plot turns THE PRICE OF INDISCRETION into a fine historical romance. Fans will appreciate the dilemma facing the likable heroine as she must choose between responsibility and loyalty to her beloved sisters vs. her beloved. Although at times Alex's behavior seems confusing, readers will appreciate this fine early nineteenth century tale and look forward to the sisters starring in future novels.
