Présentation de l'éditeur

Winner Best Historical Novel in the 2012 International Digital Awards
* * *
What woman would dare make her home at eerie Marshbanks Abbey, perched on a stony hill in remote Northumbria? It is said its owner, the brilliant botanist, Lord Stacks, killed his beautiful bride there ten years earlier.

Unaware of the tales of Lord Stacks' wickedness, Freddie Lambeth comes to live with her guardian, and through his caring blossoms from a plain, shabbily dressed girl to a lovely young woman. Freddie and Lord Stacks come to need each other as his flowers need sunshine, but Stacks cannot allow himself to love her. His own wickedness has destroyed any chance for happiness.

EXCERPT:

Was he in a hurry to be rid of her? At least he wanted a sensational mate for her. There was only one mate for her, she thought morosely. And he would be sensational. She closed her eyes and thought of being enfolded in Lord Stack's strong embrace, of resting her face against his chest, of lifting her lips to his. She grew hot as she imagined what it would feel like to have his mouth on hers, his tongue parting her lips. A wet heat centered between her legs. Her thoughts drifted even further away. She thought of lying with him, wet flesh against wet flesh. She could almost feel his mouth close around one breast.

"You do not look happy," he said.

She drew a deep breath and faced him. "It seems my company grows tedious for you. You are in so great a haste to marry me off, to be rid of me."

He reached out and touched a finger to her cheek. "I attempt to be selfless, Miss Lambeth. I want what is best for you. For myself, I would have you at Marshbanks Abbey until the end of my days."

Until the end of his days. If only. . . He studied her face for a moment. "I believe the prospect does not offend you."

"You must believe me when I tell you I've never been happier than in these past few months at the abbey." She had wanted to say these past few months with you.

"Then your life must have been singularly uneventful before."

She smiled. "That, too."

He took a sip of wine, peering at her over the rim of his glass. "Do you miss your father?"

She gathered a handful of soft fabric from her skirt into her hand. "To be honest, no."

His brows lowered. "How can that be? You seem to worry over every creature. You are so very caring."

"The exact word I would use to describe you, my lord. However, caring is not a word I would use to describe my father, although he did care very much for my mother. Unfortunately, he held me responsible for taking her from him."

"But that's ridiculous! You didn't ask to be born!"

"He did not see it that way."

Stacks watched the leaves of the tree shimmer in the breeze and did not speak for a moment. "So that explains why your education in the feminine arts was so neglected."

She nodded. "You have shown me more love in these past few months than I received in an entire lifetime." She felt her cheeks growing hot. Why had she used the word love? She had not meant to burden him with details of her unhappy life, but she felt incredibly open whenever she was with him. "That is why I've been so happy here, why I am in no hurry to leave the walls of Marshbanks Abbey."

He reached out and took her hand. "You have a home here for as long as you want."

She looked up at him, her eyes swimming in pools of unshed tears.

Lord Stacks was moving to her. She felt his arms close around her. She felt his warm breath on her cheek, and she lif

This is the familiar story of the poorly treated orphan girl. Freddie`s mother died giving birth to her and her father never forgave her for that -- despite his being a doctor and an educated man. She grew up learning all about herbs and their uses for medical treatments but very little in the way of womanly pastimes. When her father died she went to live with an uncle, but when she overheard her aunt`s plan to marry her off to an elderly lecherous man, Freddie writes to a man who was a good friend of her father.

Lord Stacks assumes Freddie is a young boy and invites `him` to come to his estate. Lord Stacks is about the same age as Freddie`s father would have been, and he is a widower. His wife's death is something only whispered about. People say he murdered her.

Freddie falls in love with him, though the reader has to wonder if this only because this is the first time someone has been good to her. He does come across as a decent fellow, and he does try to find the girl a husband even though he finds himself attracted to her.

There are rivalries among the men for Freddie`s hand as well as lures being cast by women to gain Stack`s notice.

I found it hard to believe that Freddie would become an idiot after a misunderstanding. She had been a relatively strong female character up to that point. She had confronted the man several times before but at a time when it mattered most she couldn't?

The truth of the wife`s death is revealed and the couple live happily ever after.

This sort of reminds me of Jane Eyre. Young woman - Freddie is 18 - falling in love with a man old enough to be her father; the horrible treatment by her relatives.

It was a decent story and a nice afternoon's read. I would recommend it for that, but this isn't one I would read again.

I've read other books by this author, but this one quite simply is boring. It goes very slow, repetitive, and full of flat dialogues. It never really engaged me and i was tempted to give it up several times (but i seldom put down a book without getting to the ending so i persevered, all the while thinking "come on, end already so i can pick up another"). Moreover, the book is littered with typos, and there is even a part when a long phrase was copied and pasted into another paragraph a little farther on so that it was totally awkward and unintelligible it turned me off immediately (several readers must have been equally irritated by it for they have highlighted that editorial blunder). Could have been good, but character development is lacking and the romance between the leads is not very convincing. I am disappointed and frankly i don't understand the raving five* reviews; makes me wonder whether they bought and read a different and thouroughly edited book. The valet Roberts is probably the best character here (how sad that i can't pay that complement to the heroine Freddie or the hero, or any of the minor characters).

The extremely proper Lord Stack (a tortured soul) agrees that his ward (assuming it is a young man) must come live with him. When Freddie, a destitute female, arrives he is determined to send her away. She is a maiden and he a widow. Not at all proper. Freddie's intelligence, botanical knowledge as well as her growth under his care soon changes the lord's plans. And a plot full of fine characters and awful characters evolves from there. This HEA took patience and fortitude -- very properly.

This was Jane Eyre rehashed, only not nearly as good and certainly not as original ! We have lonely windswept moors, a guardian and a misunderstood young woman with whom the guardian falls in love with but a secret (which is no secret at all) from his past concerning his first wife keeps him from even thinking about a happy future. A gullible young girl falls for the first man who gives her any type of positive attention, with a 17 year age difference between them she comes across as young, niave and stupid, while he trys to convince himself of her 'womanly' charms and maturity. The hero tries to pull off dark and brooding but fails miserably, in a similiar manner he trys to come across as noble and self-sacrificing but again fails. All in all an exeedingly booring book, with a plot stolen from a well known classic novel.

Engaging romantic conflict of older guardian & young ward falling for each other despite a 19 year age difference, a shameful secret that makes hero feel unworthy Good character development of leads , secondary characters, & villains Temporary heart break of heroine was moving as was hero's anguish at being misunderstood but luckily brief The 'climax' , ending was not as excellent as the rest of the book but still very good !
