"With her usual flair for nuanced characterization and an abundance of heart-tugging emotion, RITA Award-winner Hunter launches her new Haven Manor series with a beautifully crafted tale of love and faith."--Booklist on A Defense of Honor

Daphne Blakemoor was content living in her own secluded world for the last twelve years. She had everything she needed--loved ones, a true home, and time to indulge her imagination. But when ownership of the estate where she works as a housekeeper passes to a new marquis with an undeniable connection to her past, everything she's come to rely upon is threatened.

William, Marquis of Chemsford's main goal in life is to be the exact opposite of his father. Starting a new life in the peace and quiet of the country sounds perfect . . . until his housekeeper turns his life upside down.

Both Daphne and William have spent their lives hiding from the past. Can they find the courage to face their deepest wounds and, perhaps, forge a new path for the future together?

"In the second sterling addition to her Haven Manor series, following A Defense of Honor, RITA Award-winning Hunter gracefully fashions a quietly compelling story that deftly explores love, compassion, family, and forgiveness within the context of an impeccably rendered Regency setting."--Booklist

"Hunter continues to dive deep into the written world of nobility and their secrets in the second book of the Haven Manor series. . . . Sincere and genuine, the author skillfully incorporates wit and depth amid the intricacy of emotions in both the storytelling and the dialogue. What at first seems like a simple romance novel in fact blossoms into a profound story about finding the courage to forgive and to move forward."--Hope by the Book

"The conflicts and development of strong-willed characters form the core of this involving romance, highly recommended for fans of the genre."--Midwest Book Review
