Lady Charlotte's First Love by Anna Bradley
Genre: Historical, Romance

From spirited young woman to reckless widow, the beautiful Marchioness of Hadley remains a force to be reckoned with. But beneath her antics lies a broken heart . . .

Since her husband’s tragic death, Lady Charlotte Hadley has embarked on a path of careless behavior and dangerous hijinks from which no one can divert her . . . until suddenly, her first—and only—true love reenters her world. Their fiery romance was so scandalous Charlotte had no choice but to marry another, more suitable man. Surely now they are both free to pick up where they left off . . .

Julian West has returned to London a hero after making a name for himself in battle at Waterloo. Every woman is vying for his attention—except the one who stole his heart. No matter, Julian has other obligations. But when Charlotte’s sister, Eleanor, charges him with protecting the widow from ruin, what ensues is another kind of battle—one that leads a chase from London’s bars and brothels to the finest country estate as Julian and Charlotte untangle a host of secrets, regrets, and misunderstandings. For could it be that the love they’ve forced themselves to forget is exactly what they need to remember? . .

Received for Review (Author Copy)

Charlotte Sutherland was in love with her brother-in-law’s cousin, Julian West, but when he joined the army to fight Napoleon, she married the Marquess of Hadley. She didn’t love Hadley as she did Julian and feels guilty over his accidental death from a fall off his horse. She avoids her family by staying to herself and her 3 widowed friends. Her sister and brother-in-law, Ellie and Cam, are very concerned over the places she and her friends go and don’t understand why she won’t come with them to the country estate.
Julian returned from war with survivor’s guilt and pain. His best friend died in battle and Julian thinks he should have saved him. He wants to make it up to his friend by taking care of his sister, which he thinks includes marrying her. When Cam asks him to help Charlotte, he reluctantly agrees as he still hurts over her marrying another man. They still love each other, but won’t admit it.
The rest of this very good story is for you to read. I enjoyed it very much and can easily recommend it. I can’t wait for the next book, Twelfth Night with the Earl, about Lord Devon, one of the secondary characters in this book.
