A Love to Remember

by Bronwen Evans
Publisher ~ Random House Publishing ~ Loveswept
Genres ~ Historical Romance
A fiercely independent duchess and a brooding, reclusive earl are tested by the demands of desire in this unforgettable romance from the USA Today bestselling author of A Kiss of Lies and A Night of Forever.
For Rose Deverill, one husband was enough. As the wealthy widow of the Duke of Roxborough, she has cultivated an unsavory reputation meant to discourage wife hunters. Thanks to a string of steamy affairs, Rose is perfectly content to be known by polite society as the “Wicked Widow”—until she’s reunited with the man she fell in love with at age fifteen. Their bedroom encounters are scorching, but it breaks Rose’s heart to wonder whether her reckless behavior ruined her for Philip Flagstaff.
The second son of the Earl of Cumberland, Philip never wanted the title. But after Philip’s older brother, Robert, follows him into the Battle of Waterloo, his worst fears come to pass. Now Robert lies in a soldier’s grave, and Philip is determined never to pass on the inheritance to children of his own. Then Rose appears, soothing the pain with her delightful curves and passionate kisses. The notorious Duchess seems to want nothing from him—and yet Philip has never ached to give a woman more.
Author Bronwen Evans continues her The Disgraced Lords Series with another solid storyline entertaining and intriguing the reader through the final page.
Philip, the hero to this book, is tortured by his past and the loss of his older brother. Because he can't get out of his head and what he believes is his part in his brother's death he chooses a loveless life. Throughout the book he stays firm to his honor and refuses to love, get married or have children. What a mess! For Philip this book opens his eyes to possibilities that he didn't allow himself to see.
Rose, has been in love with Philip forever it seems. The reader's heart will ache as she struggles to deal with the blows to her character from Philip's actions and her desire to move forward and find someone who will love her and want to have more children. Her strength of character to move on with her life is a valuable lesson to all woman stuck in relationships that will never have a happy ending.
I give this 4.5 STARS for portraying a woman who learns to find her strength and a man who finally gets over himself to move on with his life.
