Miss Serena's Secret (Regency Brides: A Promise of Hope #2) by Carolyn Miller

With devastating scars in her past, Serena Winthrop is sure no man can be trusted—especially not men like the far-too-smooth Viscount Charmichael. His reputation as a charmer and a gambler is everything she despises. And the young artist makes sure that this disreputable heir to an Earldom knows of her deep disapproval whenever they encounter one another.

Henry, Lord Carmichael, is perfectly aware of his charms to the women of the ton. He's gambled with plenty of their hearts as easily as he does their husband's money—it's all in good fun to him. But lately he's been wondering if there's more to life—and confronting the idea that his actions might not prove worthy of the admirable wives his friends have found.

When Serena's brother-in-law asks his best friend to protect his young ward, Henry promises to be on his best behavior and not woo her. But the more he learns of her, the more he realizes she might be his best reason for changing his character. Then the lady's art leads her to London infamy. Now Henry must choose between the life mapped out for him as the Earl apparent, and the love of his life. And Serena's secret may mean the end of his titled family line.

The second in a new series by internationally popular author Carolyn Miller is full of the same rich historical detail and evocative writing that readers enjoyed, and familiar characters make appearances here. The witty banter will continue to draw in fans of Jane Austen, Sarah Ladd, and Julie Klassen.

My Review

It felt great to be back with old friends and be updated on their lives, this time we are with Caroline’s sister Serena, and yes, we do find out her secret.
We come at this story from different angles and know things have got to be changed when Jon asks his friend to look after Miss Winthrop, hands off so to say, never mind that sparks fly.
We also have a gifted artist, and society, mainly men, cannot deal with it being a woman, and we get to see, or read, then in action
Another don’t miss book in this series, and you will chuckle, want to cry, and cringe at some of the happenings here, and don’t miss the epilogue, wow!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Kregel, and was not required to give a positive review
