Ntil her first love comes back into her life He broke her heart 19 years ago and she ended up marrying old WorthingtonRichard the new Viscount Wolverton is Patience s first love and he has returned to London for her He lost his chance because he was away adventuring instead of coming to claim her for himself when she had her official London coming out and by the time he returned she was just Different Class days away from marrying somebody else Her parentsidn t let him see her and he lost her Now that she is a widow he has the opportunity to woo her again and he intends to o thatPatience is shocked to see Richard again and she can t help but feel all the old love for him come to the surface again She has to ignore it for the sake of her children Can she ignore it though Is there any way she can be with Richard and not just have the occasional hidden liaison with him She cannot and will not give up her childrenI enjoyed this novella a lot although I must admit I would have loved for it to have been a longer story with perhaps a build up of Patience and Richard s relationship before he went galivanting around the world A second chance at love is always better to read about when you have a in epth understanding of just how much they loved each other the first time around and how heart broken both were when they lost each other Imagine reading about Richard s anguish to return too late to claim her and having her parents stopping him get to her to tell her he was back and that she should marry him instead of old Worthington That s just my personal opinion though and it certainly Goldilocks the Three Bears didn t stop me thoroughly enjoying this story I was also absolutely fascinated with the facts that the author put at the end of the book about the rights or lack of them for a woman with regards to her children if her husbandies before her Thank goodness we on t live like that any I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Readers Copy of this book Patience Worthington is Matt s stepmother and the mother of the four younger sisters he s had custody of ever since his father ied Her marriage wasn t exactly a love match but it gave Patience her Socialist Realism daughters and that s something she ll always be grateful for When her old childhood sweetheart comes back to London he isetermined to win back the only woman he ever loved it was his fault she ended up in a loveless marriage and all he wants is to finally be able to claim her for himself It s not uite that simple though if Patience marries again she could lose her children especially since the girls have become so close to Grace s siblings and the two families are living together so happilyI really enjoyed this story Patience was married young and although she has four I Look Up To... Michelle Obama daughters she s really not much older than her stepson Matt so she s far too young to be on her own forever Richard missed his first chance with her because he was stupidly away travelling when she came out to society and heidn t return in time to stop her marriage to the old Duke He never stopped loving her though so now that she s available again he will Doctor Extraño do whatever it takes to win her heart Luckily Patience s children are on his side they want their mother to be happy and along with the rest of their family they re willing too a little plotting to help Richard win her handIt was really nice to see these two get a second chance at love it would have been great to have had some flashbacks into their childhood together but for a novella we still had plenty of time to get invested in their relationship It s always fun to spend time with the Worthington brood too and this was a great lighthearted read that I m happy to recommend. World looking for adventure while Patience at her coming out was left with no choice but to take old Worthington’s hand Richard never forgot the woman whose heart he yearned for and now that he’s back he’s not going to let her slip away aga.

Sweet simple short This is a cute novella but who s who was a little confusing at first especially the 10 children I have read some of Ella uinn s books and some are in my TBR pile If you have read the previous 2 of this series you will be fine Patience in her 30 s is the Dowager Countess of Worthington and lives with her step son Matt the current Earl and his wife The household also includes her 4 children and his wife s 7 younger siblings Richard Viscount Wolverton was Patience s first love As a young man he went off to see the world and while he was gone her parents arranged her marriage to the now eceased Earl not the best of husbands Richard has never stopped loving her and is etermined to marry her Patience is worried about losing her children as Matt is their guardian While the children want to stay together they also want her to be happy With Matt s help they find a solution that s right for everyoneThanks to NetGalley and the publisher for allowing me this ARC A short but sweet story about lost love and finding it again years later I would recommend to anyone who likes a good sweet historical romance and wants a uick and easy readThanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a review copy This was a nice light read I liked the plot wish it could have been expanded on with the author showing us the characters falling in love or being in love before the heroine had to marry someone else The only things I Never Tell didn t really like and here I am nit picking are the amount of children in the family got a bit silly specially trying to remember which child belonged to which character Also the book coveridn t match the heroes Feminism is for Everybody description book cover blonde bookark brown hair both silly things but thought they were worth mentioningOverall I enjoyed reading this story from reading the excerpt from the next book I m looking forward to reading the rest of this series4 stars ARC received from Netgalley for a honest reviewReview also posted on I am voluntarily leaving a review for an eARC supplied to my by NetGalley and the PublisherWhat a sweet little second chance at love storyPatience the Deterring Democracy dowager Countess of Worthington and Richard the Viscount Wolverton share a past 19 years ago they were in love and Patience believed they would marry But when Richard failed to return from his grand tour in time for her come out ball Patience believed he had forsaken her and accepted the offer of marriage to the much older Earl of WorthingtonRichard has never forgiven himself for missing Patience s come out he returned to find she wasays away from marrying another and her parents refused to let him see or speak to her Feeling Comet in Moominland (The Moomins, defeated he left England again andidn t return for 14 yearsHe has returned and has waited for the last five years for Patience to come home when she Hunters Heart doesn t he finally comes to claim her19 years has notulled the attraction between them but Patience can see no way for them to be together She knows that they can have no future but she can t help herself and agrees to spend time with him while he is in town She plans to make the most of the little time they have and then walk awayRichard has other ideas and he is not going to lose his love a second timeThe tale that follows is a very nice second chance love story It has some steamy love scenes some funny moments a little bit of angst and finally a very well Menneskefluene (K2 done HEA Also the author s notes at the end of the story were incredibility enlightening regarding widowhood in Regency England and really cleared away anyoubts I may have had regarding the plot of this novellaThis series is outstanding and I can t wait for Lady Louisa s story Se.
