The Gilded Knight
Classic Regency Romances Book #21
Recently widowed and left to raise a daughter on her own, the self-sacrificing
Lady Nell Simmons knows she faces an uncertain
future: her late husband's cousin and the rightful heir to their estate
has staked his claim and is demanding Nell's removal, despite the fact that
her delicate daughter is fearfully ill. When the heartless heir sends his
wayward brother Charles to hasten her departure, Nell is relieved to realize
that the scandalous man has more compassion than she imagined, but she's
still wary of his motives-- as well as the romantic feelings he stirs in
Sir Charles Blake, widely known to be a rake and a wastrel,
has agreed to serve as his brother's henchman only as a means to having
his considerable debts erased. But when he arrives at the estate, determined
to do his unpleasant duty, he's struck by Nell's quiet dignity and her generous
spirit, and suprises even himself by tending to her ailing daughter. And
as a ferocious winter storm strands him there, Charles slowly comes to find
himself torn between his obligation to his brother and the feelings of tender
longing Nell has inspired in him.
Wondering if he can possibly defy his own brother's wishes at the risk
of leaving himself destitute, Charles realizes he must summon a resolve
he's not sure he possesses. For by facing his own true feelings for Nell
and convincing her of his sincerity, he may finally be able to restore his
tarnished reputation and secure both their futures-- and their hearts .
