The Resurrection of Lady Ramsleigh (The Lost Lords #4)
A shipwreck near Castle Black sees Dr. Nicholas Warner risking his life to save a woman from the churning sea. As he pulls her to the safety of the shore, the villagers are stunned by her presence. She is no stranger to them. They identify her as Viola Grantham, Lady Ramsleigh, wife of the recently deceased Lord Percival Ramsleigh… a woman who supposedly died nearly two years earlier. The mystery and scandal surrounding her only draws him in further, adding fuel to the fire of the immediate connection he feels to her.
Viola, thanks to her cold, unfeeling father, her abusive husband and his profligate nephew, has no trust for men and very little use for them. But there is something about Dr. Warner that she cannot so easily dismiss. Drawn to him seemingly against her will and better judgement, she confides in him about the son she bore in secret, the heir to her late husband and that she had only returned to secure his future and his place in society.
As they spend more time together, their feelings for one another deepen. But their happiness and growing affection for one another are threatened by Viola’s past. The late Lord Ramsleigh’s nephew, Randall, will not willingly give up the title, even if his aunt has returned from the dead and is presenting a child as the true heir to the title. In fact, there is nothing he will not do and no depths to which he will not sink, to ensure that never happens. He means to hold on to the title and the prestige that accompanies it by any means necessary… even if it means doing far more than just pretending that she is dead.
Will Viola be able to let go of the pain from her past and embrace the love of a truly good man? And even if she can, will Randall’s plots and schemes cost her far more than just her chance at happiness?
