A benchmark for modern period romances,
This review is from: Silent Revenge (Paperback)
Jessica is forced to bargain with a penniless noble to save herself from her evil brothers plot to get his hands on her inheritance. Her brother knows her best kept secret, that she is deaf, and will use it to lock her away given the chance. Given her lack of faith in herself, can she persuade her new husband to care enough to stand up for her?
It's one of the better period romances I've read recently - the characters are complex enough with their on issues, and the villainous brother is menacing enough to give the story an edge. It lacks the whining, drawn out concern with being proper for the time, and in my opinion this is only a good thing.
