Saved by the Scoundrel: A Smithfield Market Regency Romance: Book 2 - Preview Only
Although she never thought of herself as one of the lucky ones, Caroline Devonshire’s life could have been in a much dire state than it was at the age of 18.
Orphaned when young, her older brother managed to secure her a home under the watchful eye of the widowed tavern owner, Mrs. Beeson, before setting off for war in France.
Caroline has dreams beyond the tavern and Smithfield Market. And changes are coming to offer her the opportunity to do just that! Can she handle the changes, create a better life, and find love as well?
Eleanor has always loved Theodore, and, in return, he has sworn his love for her. Their secret kisses and clandestine meetings thrill Eleanor’s heart, bonding him to her forever. She swears her love for him will never die, keeping his grandmother’s ring as proof that she will wait for him as he goes to make his fortune.
What she does not expect is the torment and strain that comes with five years apart, especially when he no longer responds to her letters. Desperate, she clings to the hope that he will return to claim her as his bride, only to accept another man’s proposal in a moment of weakness.
When Theodore returns, he is not the man she remembered. Can she get him to reveal the secrets that divide them? Or will her efforts leave her with nothing more than a broken heart?
