Some secrets are too sinful to tell. 

More years ago than she cares to count, Lady Gloria Sheridan, Dowager Countess of Blackbourne, was forced to give up the man she loved to marry a man she despised. Now, over a year since her husband’s death, Gloria finds herself at odds – free at last, but alone and unfulfilled. The secret she holds close to her heart, haunts her still. Torn between her past and an empty future, Gloria sees no happy ending in sight. That is, until the man she once loved returns. But will revealing her secret destroy her second chance at happiness?

Betrayed by the woman he loved, Sir Arran Sutherland never intended to come home again. Military life and war seem preferable. But a family tragedy leaves him no choice. He must return to assume the role as patriarch of the family and estate--an estate that borders the lands of the woman who rejected him all those years ago. There, Arran cannot seem to avoid the woman he calls Glory. Worse still, he isn’t sure he wants to. But theirs is a past filled with secrets and regrets and all too quickly he finds himself at war once again, though this time the battle is between what he believes and what truly is.

    Wonderful story

    This novella centres on the relationship between the Dowager Countess of Blackbourne - the mother of Nicolas Sheridan from book 1 in this series - and Arran Sutherland, who's family owns the property next door. The two are reunited after nearly thirty years, but it is at first a rocky reunion. Like so many, Gloria (the Countess) was forced to marry a man she didn't love to satisfy the needs of family and fortunes. The fall out of the ending of that relationship forms the basis of this story. It also proves that, especially in historical romance, where couples are often very young, that they don't need to be to have a satisfying romantic story. The hero and heroine in this book are reaching (or just over) 50. And yet, there is just as much romantic tension, it is just as sensual (perhaps even more so) than any other typical story I've read. It proves it can be well done - very well done - and actually, when you have characters who are older, have more to regret perhaps, more history, more to overcome, it can make the conflict that much greater and the ending so very satisfying, as The Lady's Sinful Secret has proven.
