#178 (#114) - Secrets of Surrender ~ Madeline Heath
Book 3 - The Rothwell Brothers Series
Beautiful Roselyn Longworth is plunged into poverty by the collapse of her brothers' banking empire (see Book 1), but as she holds her cousin's husband (Lord Haydn) to blame she will take nothing from them.
In desperation she falls back on her beauty and agrees to become the mistress of a lord, she believes that there is affection involved in his offer, but very soon finds that out to be incorrect at a fateful house party when he puts her up for auction.
Self-made mining boy, Kyle Bradwell, comes to the rescue and puts in an extraordinarily high bid to win her.
To protect her reputation he then offers to marry her, but can he win her over with kindness, and is that the secret to surrender?
A 4.5 star read.
