Lady Henrietta harbours a secret, so appalling, she cannot tell even her closest friend, the Lady Isabella. As her wedding approaches, it preys on her mind, and she pleads with her fiancé Lord Vaughan Bruges, the Marquess de Courres, to delay the consummation of the marriage. They have a shocking argument, in which Lord Vaughan refuses to declare any love for her, and to her anguish is unwilling to give up his mistress. Henrietta wishes to call off the marriage, but knows it would ruin her family’s reputation. However, Lord Vaughan too harbours a secret, one that could break Henrietta’s heart, even wreck her life.
There is a certain prince, who is determined to have her, married or not, but what is his true title?
A romance set in 1815 as the clouds of war gather over Brussels.
I read A Lady’s Plight a few months ago and fell in love with Katy’s writing style. Henrietta didn’t disappoint. At the end of A Lady’s Plight I was worried for poor Henrietta. She definitely needed a good dose of sex ed to calm her nerves. You start out thinking she’s a bit of a bubble-head in the beginning of the book but the best part of the story is watching her grow. She’s smarter than I thought and I think she even surprised herself. I LOVE historical romances, mostly for the history and vintage feel of the stories. Sometimes they can be a bit too much fluff and bodice-ripping for me but what I love about this series is that there is SO much story. Seriously, I hope Lord Vaughn gets his because he is such a cad. I also REALLY liked Ambros and I hope he pops up again in the series. He is what men should be. Gallant, respectful and adoring.
Lady Phillipa is up next and I can not wait to read it. These girls have definitely caught my attention. It’s such a great series to get lost in. Fantastic lazy day read.
About the author:
My main loves are writing, painting and singing. I began work as a PA but to my joy was spotted by an agent in London and had an exciting career as a singer, meeting and singing with some wonderful people. Singing meant a lot of travelling both in the UK and abroad. At one time, I toured Germany and Turkey singing for the American troops, which was a fantastic experience. But then, my husband and I wanted a family, so I said good-bye to the singing career, although I did the occasional gig. Having children is such a precious time, and I would say to anyone, treasure it, it goes so quickly and before you know it, you’re waving them off to Uni or pursuing their own dreams and their own homes.
I have always had a deep interest in psychology for various reasons, and especially the area of neurosis arising from abuse. Later, I was to study how we could use our body, mind and spirit to relieve pain and overcome some life-threatening diseases. One important thing here is, I always told my patients to continue with medical treatment along with the complementary and spiritual methods, for I believe medical research and medication is also a gift from God, Spirit or the Universe, as each of us wishes to name it.
I have loved writing from a child and during the years of study, research and treating some wonderful people, whom I called my friends, I would write at night, mainly short stories, and reams of poetry. I wanted to learn how to write self-help books for my clients, so I took creative writing courses at university, which led to writing a novel. So self-help novels turned to fiction but even so, I hope the novels help the reader through their own challenges, as the characters experience love, loss, passion, jealousy, illness, joy and conflict, even the threat of death.
At present, I am writing the third book in the series ‘Lady Phillipa’s Peril’ and also putting together some ideas for the self-help book.
This has been so enjoyable thank you.
