Greed, prejudice and a stolen identity.
In the four weeks since her guardians’ death, Eulogy Foster has lost everything.
Penniless and alone she seeks the help of her estranged brother, Lord Lucien Devlin. But Devlin throws Eulogy onto the streets and the mercy of a passing stranger, Jack Huntley, who becomes an unlikely ally. As Eulogy seeks the truth behind her birth, she is drawn into the world of art and artists, where her morals are challenged and nothing is as it seems.
Jack Huntley: bitter, cynical and betrayed in love. He believes women are devious, scheming, untrustworthy creatures - and when he rescues a naïve Miss from being raped, his life is about to change forever. There is something about Miss Foster that haunts him and challenges his emotions. But despite their growing attraction, Eulogy will not share her secret, which means he cannot trust her. Caught in a deadlock, both denying their true feelings, events take a sinister turn as someone seeks to silence Eulogy…forever.
One reader's review:
Eulogy's Secret is a lovely romantic book which had me engrossed right from the start. The great description of old London and the dialogue between characters are a treat. It is evident that the author has done lots of research to get this just right and it provided me with an extra real interest amongst the excellent plot. The atmosphere is very well described by the author in phrases such as, "..before passing the malignant gray walls of the workhouse...".
The romance starts right away and I was immediately engaged with the characters and very satisfied with the ending, hoping to see Devlin in some way outwitted I was not disappointed.
There is steamy romance, fun, adventure, and danger in this well written book. Eulogy is a lovely character and so is Jack Huntley. You can't help but like him right at the start of the book with his amusing thoughts and then by the end of the book you are in love with him.
I really enjoyed this book and if you are looking for an historical romance that is amusing, entertaining, gripping, very romantic you cannot go wrong with this book.
I will be looking out for the next book in the series.
This has to have five stars it's delicious.
