Honor's Players series - Book 3
A Loving Heart Cannot Be Deceived
Although her marriage to Mr. Waddley had been passionless, the beautiful widow Cecilia vowed to unmask the man responsible for her husband's untimely demise. Suspecting that the culprit traveled in society circles, Cecilia diverted attention from her eavesdropping and prying with her constant and tiresome complaints of illness.
Sir James Branstoke saw through her feigned fragility. Intrigued by her odd behavior, he believed she was hiding a secret. At the same time, Cecilia sensed deeper emotions beneath Sir Branstoke's witty flirtations. Indeed, the only time Cecilia felt genuinely out-of-sorts was when she felt the gaze of his sparkling brown eyes . . . and her pretended palpitations suddenly became all too real when Cecilia discovered a blissful and surprising love she had never known before!
