When a Duke Loves a Woman by Lorraine Heath
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When a Duke Loves a Woman by Lorraine Heath is book Two in the 'A Sins for All Seasons' series. This is the story of Gillie Trewlove and Anthony Coventry 'Thorne' the Duke of Thornley. I haven't yet read the previous book, so for me this was a standalone book.
Gillie was left at the door step of Ettie Trewlove when she was just a baby. Ettie Trewlove was known to take in children that were left unwanted so along with Gillie, Ettie had more 'children' all raised as siblings. Ettie was sure to teach Gillie to defend herself both physically and mental from the usage of men. So although Gillie is now a tough women running her own taverns she is really innocent in the way of physical relationships. But when she finds a injured man at her door she in turns takes him in to help him recovery.
Thorne was raised by cold parents and had taken over the title of Duke when he was a teenager. Now finally doing the marriage that has been expected of him...he finds that Lavinia has left him at the alter. Which has ended him up injured and at the door of Gillie. Gillie has agreed to help him find Lavinia but while doing so, Thorne starts to think maybe he is looking for the wrong person.
Enjoyed their story allot...can't wait for more books in this series.
