|Lady Patience still suffers from her disastrous début on
the ton. She had her heart broken and for a woman who
leads with her heart, and determines the consequences later
this was disastrous. She has returned this year to help
chaperone her cousins, mostly to make sure they don't fall for
the same "lines" she did. She didn't count on her parents
setting up a marriage for her, or meeting her betrothed on a
dueling field, while trying to save a childhood friend.
Viscount Rexley has taken on a lot of responsibility in the
last six months, since he found his father after a failed
suicide attempt. Now he is trying to save the family fortune,
and start looking for a wife. Unfortunately his father signs a
marriage contract with a woman he hasn't met. But, while Lady
Patience drives him insane he is instantly drawn to her. Can
they overcome their differences and let their love blossom?
Patience is a wonderful romantic story where the main
character leads with her heart at all costs. I thoroughly
enjoyed the story, the suspense and the characters. The author
does a wonderful job of letting us see not only into
Patience's head but also into Rexley's at the same time.
Seeing their reactions to each other, and their love grow. I
thoroughly recommend Patience for those who love a Historical
Romance, and I seriously hope that Patience's cousins get
their own tales.
