Believing her lost to him forever, he tries to forget her through an endless line of ladies, his rakish ways leaving him empty and wanting. That is until he literally bumps into the Lady Elizabeth, his curiosity aroused. Drawn to her, because she reminds him of a loss he will never regain, he comes to realize she just may be the Lady Marianne, fulfilling a promise of a dance that never was. His only problem…she does not remember him.

Can he bring her memories forth, allowing her to see him as she did then? To know him once more and reclaim the love for him she once had? Or will she be lost to him forever?

What they’re saying:

4 out of 5 stars ~ “This delightful Regency tale takes historical fiction one step further, by exploring relationships that time and death cannot sever by introducing paranormal elements. Lauren Hunter’s extensive research into this period is evident and creates a traditional setting for this non-traditional story. Her use of humour and dialogue brings the characters to life, crafting an engaging story with witty repartee.” ~ Mrs. Rabbit

The Second Son is the prequel to Vonnie Hughes’ wonderful historical romance, Coming Home. It is the achingly sensitive story of the plight of “spare siblings” in the 19th century when the first son automatically inherited all properties, titles and rights and any other sons were left to find their own way. John Trewbridge comes home from the wars to find his brother affianced to the woman he had asked to be his wife. It seems his lack of a title was her premise for refusing. While he struggles with deciding his future, an annoying young woman with a limp continually crosses his path. When a shocking accident changes his destiny, he must deal with the guilt that his gain is his family’s loss.

What they’re saying:
*
This story is beautifully written with characters who pull at your heartstrings and whose imperfections add to their credibility. Hughes skillfully draws you back to the 19th century where you walk alongside the characters, share their adventures and feel their emotions. I love her writing style and am looking forward to reading more of her work.
