One wild winter's eve - Anne Barton

As the Duke of Huntford's sister, Lady Rose Sherbourne follows the rules of well-bred society. Always chaperoned. Never engaging in unseemly behavior. Well, except for that one summer, years ago. And yet she's never been able to forget that handsome stable master or the stolen moments they shared. She's always wondered what might have happened if he hadn't disappeared without a word... Now she's about to find out. 

Charles Holland never expected to see Lady Rose again. And yet the years haven't lessened his devotion—or his desire—in any way. Despite their differences in class, Charles cannot stop himself from wanting to possess her. But as they uncover one intimate secret after another about her family, they realize that, this time, their love may come at a very dear price... 

My thoughts:
Yes it was different, I do not see this very often. Rose is the sister of a duke. Charles works in the stables. See!

Rose was sweet, a tad bit too naive.
Charles was hardworking and wanted something more from his life.
They are so wrong for each other, and so right.

What I did not like is what I was never clear why her mother did some things...

Oh I am rambling. Rose and Charles meet again. She is no longer mute from shock, and he is now a steward. But she is still out of his reach. She is looking for her mother. He can't help himself, he wants to help out.

So they look for secrets, and can't help themselves ;)

Grrrr, there is this woman in it, no spoilers, but I started to loathe her! You can only imagine that the road to love is not without hurdles.

Conclusion:
I did like the story, but to be honest, her family would never have allowed them to be together. But the family is nice and all (as if).

  7. Sounds like it wasn't all that realistic but I love that the hero isn't from the same class as she was. It gives a unique twist to the historical romance :) I need to read this!

    1. It wasn't, BUT most Duke meets shopgirl are not either. So why did I have a harder time believing it the other way around? Boo, me. Yay love
