Yet Alice Croft is anything but common. She is low-born, yes, but also strong-willed, clever, confident, and bears a luminous beauty Leo cannot ignore. Inexorably drawn to her, he knows that even the rumor of a liaison between them could ruin his marriage prospects. But the harder he fights against her, the stronger their attraction grows - until Leo is forced to choose between the woman who stole his heart and the family that demands his honor.
In this unforgettable follow-up to Her Secret Desire, Lord Warhurst’s turbulent love story unfolds with all the wit, passion, and drama that C. J. Archer’s growing legion of fans have come to expect.

Another GREAT Listen!!!!
What did you like best about this story?
I like that Warhurst fell in love with Alice the seamstress. Both Alice and Warhurst had to struggle with the "class" restrictions and expectations and finally overcame the issues. I think that I like Warhurst's mother the best though. She is such a strong determined woman and initially obviously does not approve of Alice, but she loves her children and has their best interest at heart.
What about Justine Eyre’s performance did you like?
Great - she's just great!
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
When the book ended I had a big grin on my face. This book just made me happy. At one point during the book I thought that I didn't like it as good as the first book in the series, but then as I kept listening this book is just as good as the first book. Just different.
Any additional comments?
I'll definitely be looking for more books by C. J. Archer. I love her writing style, characters and stories. Another great historical romance writer!

Picking up where "A Secret Life" left off, we now see how Leo the Baron of Warhurst must deal with his family's dilemmas. CJ Archer makes a real leap of writing with this piece by raising the level of her hero. Leo is conflicted. He carries a lot of emotional baggage and it will take the seamstress Alice Croft to make him a better man. Archer skillfully weaves the plot, while building the emotional tension between Alice and Leo. The passion of the love scenes are driven by emotions, rather than lust. Archer instills the essence of true romance, making for a delightfully satisfying listen.
