The last of the four Warriner brothers finally gets his HEA! Jake is the youngest of the brothers and as a child he hated his parents’ arguments. His mother was unstable and often threatens to kill herself. When she was drowning, Jake was there trying to help her, but the river was flowing to fast. He blames himself for her death.
Lord Crispin Rowley is a smuggler that Jake and some friends are trying to stop. Rowley has a grown niece, Felicity Blunt, who is visiting London for the first time. Her uncle insists she have a season, but she plans to go back to the school in Cumbria after she sees the London sights. Jake gets close to her to find out what she knows about her uncle, but he is also attracted to her.
This book has several plots going on at the same time and I will not spoil them. Twists and turns all through the book. And yes, when he needs help, you will revisit his brothers and their families. This is a book that is very hard to put down.
My favorite line was “a woman alone needs to be self-sufficient, resilient and resourceful.” I can easily recommend this book. It can be read on its own, but I hope you read the entire series. Virginia Heath has become an automatic buy for me.
