Twenty-two years ago, she ran out on the love of her life—and took a secret with her.

When Randi Jean Ferguson fell for Courtland Robinson while studying abroad in London, she was ready for a life of tea and crumpets. But when she discovered Court was being forced into a shotgun wedding, there was no way she could stay—or tell him she was also pregnant with his child. Now widowed, Randi is just starting to consider finding Court—when he shows up at her door. With his son. Randi’s not ready to reveal everything to Court, but if she doesn’t will both their children end up scarred?

The best thing to come out of Court’s unhappy marriage was his son. But he’s spent the last twenty-two years thinking about Randi, his California girl, his first—and only—love. Now a widower, he takes a chance he’s only fantasized about and seeks her out. At last he’ll solve his heart’s greatest mystery—but that won’t be the only surprise in store for him.

Randi - at the beginning of the story, she was known as Jean, but later became Randi. She had a very sweet personality. Very self sacrificing. She had a great sense of humor, and I thought she was smart. She wasn't a push over, which really added to her character. I like women who don't take much crap from the men around them.I also adored the relationship she had with her father.

Court - first off, I have a thing for English men. He fits the bill perfectly. I liked his charm and the fact that he could be patient and wait for what he wanted. He wasn't pushy or rude. I quite fancied his choice of words at times, and found myself smiling from ear to ear. Totally lovable. When I picture the two of them in my mind, I do not see them as the ones on the cover though - but this is seldom the case anyway. Court had some fetish behaviors in the bedroom that made him crazy hot.

The beginning started out with some conflict that certainly threw the story into a quick paced momentum. Nothing slow about the book except the end could have been cut in half. The end for me was just okay because I was already satisfied prior to it continuing on for another couple of chapters.

For being a short time period, the author was able to creatively keep the pace, and added a few twists and turns that kept me wondering who was actually doing what. I was satisfied that she didn't hold off for several chapters before progressing forward with the answers.

The only thing missing from this book was the 'tear factor.' I didn't cry. Nothing moved me enough to make me sob, yet, I wish that it had.

Congrats to the author for writing a book that didn't let me put it down. I read it in three days, in between my duties as a mother and other life challenges that I resented at the time I was reading this book.

It really is a very romantic story, and the fact that the hero is an English gentleman made it even more nostalgic. If you like hot sex scenes, this will do it, because Court likes his playtime.

I was given an advance copy of this book for my time and review. No money was exchanged. My review is based on my own opinions, as both a book lover, and a writer. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes reading romance.
