Bridget and Will's story! And it is both a heart breaking/warming one!!! As the great family enters into the new era, everything becomes more turbulent. The two cousins marry, but is it for the right reason? As always it is a very well written story line with some of the characters we have come to love.
Excellent story! Will and Bridget are terrific characters and their tale combines chivalry, mystery, scandal and unspoken love into a wonderous tangle. I loved every minute of it!
Another trip through history, where it just proves how strong & resilient women can be under times of stress & trials. Brigitte was put through a lot of this & her saviour was her old familiar family friend Will, who not only helped her, but also himself too. Loved the way this story went, so we went the whole nine yards with them too. Have always loved this family, but even more so, when you realise, they do have souls & hearts. Brilliant read.
“Something most of society would call contemptible and fit for nothing but poets and dreamers, yet it is the burning heart of this family and its greatest strength” My heart melts! As the family grows so do the great stories. Lady Bridget has come of age ready to marry but reluctant to marry into the great family. Will, her older cousin, teases her to no end. Until he needs to man up. I just love the family dynamics, the women who are strong and way too smart and the man who love them and are strong enough to let them be. I particularly enjoyed the era this story is set on, where women are starting to come forward and fight for their rights, industry is about to be born and still honor is best fought for in the old ways. Ms Cooper has once again written a beautiful historical!
A strong woman, a rogue and a marriage of convenience. At least that is how it starts. Never one to take shortcuts with her stories, Tracy introduces us to the characters with a simple get together. The conversations at the gatherings are so natural and flowing that I feel like I am actually there. I have to admit that I tried to figure out just how the story would play out but my guesses were not even close. Just a great read.
This author puts you squarely back into history with the sights, sounds and scents of the times. Old-fashioned morality, the season, family expectations and beyond. Bridget is set on marrying outside the great family. When a soon-to-be-fiancé ends up being a cad instead… she accepts Will’s proposal; she needs protection and he needs an heir. When they seem to be making quite a success of this arrangement, suddenly Will cannot face the results and basically abandons Bridget at their rural estate. When he must eventually make amends; it may be too late.
Bridget is forced to learn to run a household and takes on the responsibility for those on the estate and the nearby community. Women are not allowed to own property, and a business is included therein. This story is a brilliant exposition on earlier times woven within a true love story. Immerse yourself in this exquisite story which I highly recommend!!
Another great installment to this series. When Bridget gets into trouble; Will comes to the rescue. In this book of the Scandalous Scion Series, the trials and tribulations that Will & Bridget must face and how they eventually work through them reflects what real life can bring into a relationship. As in Tracy's previous books of this series, she has given us a story that is well written and developed as well as something for us to think about.
