The Earl with the Secret Past
Adam Monroe/Kitty Fenton
An unexpected inheritance
An explosive reunion
Hardworking architect Adam Monroe’s world is shaken when he inherits an earldom! Thrust into the ton, he bumps into widow Kitty Fenton—his lost love. Years before, he refused to elope with Kitty to save her from ruin, and was heartbroken when she married soon after he left. Perhaps fate has given him a chance to discover the truth—after all, beneath the hurt, the sparks of attraction are as strong as ever…
The Earl with the Secret Past is author Janice Preston’s latest book featuring a couple who finally get their HEA after 15 years apart. What a fabulous second chance story!
Adam Monroe was an architect’s apprentice working on an estate in Hertfordshire when he meets Kitty Fenton, the daughter of the Earl who lives on the neighboring estate. Love blossoms but Adam deems himself unworthy of an Earl’s daughter and walks out of Kitty’s life, breaking both their hearts…
Fast forward fifteen years later… Adam’s circumstances have changed and he’s now back in Hertfordshire. I absolutely loved Adam! He’s a successful, hard-working man whose life turns upside down on him. Nothing will ever be the same, but the excitement he feels at seeing the only love of his life again is real and the reader can’t help but want to see these two find a way to overcome the hurt and misunderstandings of the past. Kitty was a wonderful character and I understood her hurt from all those years ago and the agony of having to deny Adam once he returned. They were a lovely couple who deserved their HEA and Ms. Preston did a wonderful job of giving them one! Besides a fabulous couple and storyline, there were several secondary characters I would love to get to know better! Robert, Kitty’s stepson, and Tolly who is Adam’s cousin were fascinating characters and would make wonderful future heroes! 😉 Really enjoyed this one and highly recommend it!
