"Jo Beverly manages to do to a novella what she does to a full length story - gives us everything we could want and does it with finesse." Review on

"Exquisite, suspenseful and delightful. This is a must read." A Goodreads review.

A sexy Georgian historical romance novella by Jo Beverley, a New York Times bestselling author and member of the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame.

In 1765 a desperate mother accepts shelter with a stranger for herself and her children, but at what cost?

England in the Georgian age was not kind to the poor. When Lily Gifford finds herself homeless in the countryside on a bitter November evening she has no choice but to accept shelter from a passing stranger. But when she and her children arrive at Brooks Hall, the house is cold and neglected, and their host abandons them to his handful of resentful servants.

When Lily learns Sir Benjamin Brook's secret, she sees hope for herself and her family, if only she dare risk all to grasp it.

"Fabulous! Jo Beverley never disappoints as a writer whichever period she writes in." Review on
