Enjoyable read and I d recommend it for people looking for a slightly nuanced romance novel Immediately before this book I started another one I had to frog as knitters would say ie abandon The difference was all in the telling How Gabon does it I can t say but a works if difference exists between this story and the one I gave up onThough not the wittiest writer I ve read Gabon has a knack for creating very empathic characters This book has a particularly strong narrative arc in its exploration of forgiveness growth and redemption I also appreciated that the story didn t seem as focused on reader titillation as other booksLastly I can t fault her pacing and plotting The story kept me engaged the whole way through This was a really enjoyable Regency romance Even though it is book 3 in a series I was still able to follow it The book is about a beautiful 32 year old widow Daphne Lady Faville and the gentleman she falls in love with Hugh Westleigh Westleigh of course is a handsome 33 year old from a scandalous London family They meet as Westleigh saves Daphne from a fire Westleigh s eyes are damaged by the flames and suddenly Daphne becomes his caretaker There is some past history between Lady Faville and the Westleigh Family which causes all kinds of drama that is wrapped up in 283 pages Or if not wrapped up at least or hero and heroine are happily together at the end Good book with a theme of redemption for the heroine Daphne is the other woman from the previous book in the series A Marriage of Notoriety At the time she was a beautiful but selfish widow who was pursuing Xavier simply because he was good looking and she thought they would look good together After setting the Masuerade Club on fire she left England and went to Switzerland There she spent time at an abbey learning to be a better person On her return to England she was caught in a fire at an inn and rescued by none other than Hugh Westleigh brother of the woman she wronged Hugh is injured in the fire concussed and blinded and Daphne feels responsible for nursing him back to healthBecause she knows he would hate her if he knew who she was Daphne gives him a false name At first she tries to keep her distance from him but she s really the only one who can spend time with him while he is recovering The time they spend together the she likes him and finds things that they have in common There is also a strong attraction between them that Daphne tries to resist because of the guilty feelings over the harm she caused his family But there is also the happiness that she feels over being desired for something other than her beauty which goes a long way A man with every reason to despise her But Hugh has been blinded and Daphne must nurse him back to health Unable to see he is driven to distraction by her tantalizin.
Lady Faville has made some bad choices and exhibited bad behavior in the past but that is all behind her as she returns to England from the Swiss convent where she s spent the last several years When she s rescued from a fire by Hugh Westleigh she s terrified he ll realize she s the notorious Lady Faville who almost burned his family s gaming establishment down among other things When she realizes Hugh has been temporarily blinded Daphne feels she must care for him until she can make other arrangements and decides to go by Mrs Asher to make the situation easier Of course one little lie always leads to and although they both begin to care for one another her deception will be hard to explain once Hugh gets his sight back and sees 23 stars Wow What a start to a great book I loved the reversal of the damsel in distress It was great reading about how Hugh has to deal with his sudden blindness and his thought process to go along with it This book kept me intrigued and reading it till I was done Great ob I received A Lady of Notoriety as part of a Goodreads giveawayDaphne Lady Faville is rescued from a burning inn by Hugh Westleigh the brother of the woman Daphne wronged in an attempt to seduce the woman s husband Since her failure Daphne has turned over a new leaf after a reprieve on the Continent She nurses Hugh concussed and temporarily blinded back to health all the time lying about her identity Over the course of a couple short weeks Hugh and Mrs Asher fall deeply in love However while Hugh eventually regains his sight and his health Daphne s story begins to unravel her identity is revealed and Hugh must reconcile the woman he thought her knew and loved with the image of the cool temptress who nearly ruined his beloved sister s happinessIt s not often I give a romance novel than three stars but I loved this one I have a soft spot for stories in which the villain from a previous novel becomes the heroine For being a relatively short read the chemistry Gaston develops between her leads is impressive Neither is perfect and his family s understandable horror at Hugh s choice of liason doesn t entirely fade even in the epilogue It s much realistic than many romances I ve read in that the characters have real issues to overcome and even the final outcome is not entirely sunshine and roses There are some uibbles for instance the almost certainly Protestant Daphne taking refuge in a Catholic abbey and Daphne s transformation seems almost too complete you d think the vain selfishness that dominated her personality for 30 years would rear its head every once in a while but for the most part these are minor Really. DESIRED FOR HERSELF ALONE When fallen beauty Daphne Lady Faville is carried to safety from a rampaging fire she's horrified to recognize her rescuer as Hugh Westleigh.
