Wealthy Lady Georgina Maitland doesn't want a husband, though she could use a good steward to run her estates. One look at Harry Pye, and Georgina knows she's not just dealing with a servant, but a man.
Harry has known many aristocrats - including one particular nobleman who is his sworn enemy. But Harry has never met a beautiful lady so independent, uninhibited, and eager to be in his arms.
Still, it's impossible to conduct a discreet liaison when poisoned sheep, murdered villagers, and an enraged magistrate have the county in an uproar. The locals blame Harry for everything. Soon it's all Georgina can do to keep her head above water and Harry's out of the noose...without missing another night of love.

Amazing Read

If you are interested in Historical fiction with romance then this is the book for you. Very seductive, as well as moving. This is definetly worth a credit. Moira's voice is such that you just want to listen, and it calms your senses. If you want to just sit by the pool and relax, or sit by the fire (depending on which hemisphere your in) then this book is must.

Book 2 of The Prince series and it's every bit as good as book 1 - well what else would you expect from the very talented mind of Ms Hoyt - and, although this is a trilogy, each book is a stand-alone book with the only connection being a nursery story about a Prince running through each one.

If you're like me and love a good historical romance then just press the Add to Cart key now because this has so many thing we love - a likeable strong heroine that's no beauty except in the eyes of her hero, her flawed and mentally tortured Land Steward Harry and, like a moth to a flame, the Lady just can't stay away from him.

A very emotional roller-coaster of a plot that's funny, sad, tender, passionate, sexy and sweet - yet it's also got cruelty, suspicion, tragedy and bitterness at the same time. Apart from their differences in the social divide dictated by Georgian England, Harry is also being framed for murder and Lady Georgina has a sister and three brothers who are all disapproving and giving her unwanted and unhelpful advice. Despite all the negatives in their lives they desperately try hard to have a loving relationship but holding on to it proves even harder as the villain of the story (there's always one isn't there!) tightens his net.

Worth a credit? Yes absolutely, EH books usually are, but there is strong verbalisations of the sex scenes - so be warned.
