#388 - His Shadowed Heart

Kindle Store > Books > Fiction > Historical > Romance


Can a shadowed heart be healed? Can love grow where least expected? The Earl of Waverly believes not. How wrong can he be!

After the death of his wife, the Earl of Waverly, believing his heart irreparably damaged, enters into a marriage of convenience. However, he is not prepared for the healing influence his new young bride has on his life.

Despite the couple’s new-found happiness, nefarious deeds abound and strange happenings are attributed to the ghost of his former wife. Will their love stand the test or will the perpetrator emerge the victor?

...... and now an excuse to add in the video:

I find that there is something truly beguiling and timeless about Hazel's writing, and "His Shadowed Heart" lived up to my usual expectations.

Probably, I have said this before about her, but I find she's very close to Georgette Heyer in her style and pace.  With her characters' always believable, layered and worth investing in.  You are not simply going to get from A to B, there are nice twists along the way.

It always makes me happy to get my hands on a true Regency Romance crafted with the loving care that Hazel takes.  She one of the best novelists around for that period, with the books being readable over again, and still coming up fresh.


A big fat 5 ***** Stars from me for this delightful love story, who wouldn't fall in love with the Earl of Waverley.

Get this book, read it and then keep it for those snuggle down by the fire winter nights, with a bottle of wine and fall in love with the Earl all over again.
