THE ARISTOCRAT'S LADY
For a few moments on a moonlit balcony, Nicole Beaumont was just a beautiful woman catching the eye of the handsome Lord Devlin -- but she knew the illusion couldn't last. If the enigmatic aristocrat knew her secret, he'd realize that her disability left her unfit for love. So who could blame her for hiding the truth a little longer?
Devlin had never met a woman like Nicole. Her unique combination of innocence and wisdom left him utterly intrigued. Yet what was she hiding? For a man who did not trust easily, discovering her secret was devastating. Overcoming their pasts and forging a future would take faith, forgiveness and trust. And second chances could lead to new beginnings...
Though I don't know the exact time period The Aristocrat's Lady is set in, it has the feel of a classic Regency read so that's how I'm going to describe it. Now Regency isn't always my favourite setting for a historical romance but this one has more than a few twists that kept me riveted.
Nicole has a secret and it isn't revealed until well into the book. I was driving myself mad trying to figure it out. Moore has planted clever little hints that don't make sense -- at least they didn't to me -- until the big reveal. I read this one ravenously! Finished it in an afternoon because I just couldn't put it down.
Devlin plays the role of the jaded aristocrat well -- until he becomes intrigued by Nicole. The dialogue between the two is so refreshing and witty, even outrageous at times. I loved it!
In fact there isn't anything I didn't love about the book. Simply a classic good read.
