An Unexpected Encounter
For a few moments on a moonlit balcony, Nicole Beaumont was just a beautiful woman catching the eye of the handsome Lord Devlin—but she knew the illusion couldn't last. If the enigmatic aristocrat knew her secret, he'd realize that her disability left her unfit for love. So who could blame her for hiding the truth a little longer?
Devlin had never met a woman like Nicole. Her unique combination of innocence and wisdom left him utterly intrigued. Yet what was she hiding? For a man who did not trust easily, discovering her secret was devastating. Overcoming their pasts and forging a future would take faith, forgiveness and trust. And second chances could lead to new beginnings…
I won this book from the Love Inspired Historical group on Goodreads. This is Mary's Debut book and a good book at that. I am not a huge regency fan but I really did enjoy this book. Nicole is special who is hiding a disability from everyone but her family. She wants to be treated normally so makes sure her family doesn't tell anyone. She is more than just one of the ladies who's goal it is to snare a man during the season. Nicole cares deeply for the important things. She has an encounter with Devlin and thinks he's just one another arrogant gentleman. She finds the encounter interesting that he makes her laugh and feel she can be herself. As she gets to know him better she sees a different side of Devlin. This book deals with trust, honesty, and perceptions. I am glad to have had the chance to read this book as it was a really good read.
