Series: First Comes Love (#1)

Historical romance /own

Adeline is a widow who has a school for girls in her backyard. Well, she will soon have a school.

Her first meeting with Lyon was hilarious, and tsk Lyon, Lyon. The neighborhood was gossiping what on earth was going on in her backyard.

She is a happy widow, and Lyon gets on her nerves. There is banter, there is being annoyed, there is attraction building. But she does not want another bad marriage, and he wants someone to love. Not to love for a moment.

Cute story, they get their hea.

When Adeline, Dowager Countess of Wake, learns of her husband’s sudden death, she realizes she’s free. At last, she can do, go, and be as she pleases. Finally, she can have the life she has always dreamed of. She doesn’t need, or want, to remarry. Especially not the supremely dashing future Marquis of Marksworth, who makes Adeline yearn for his desire. . .

Lord Lyonwood, son of a philandering marquis, will not be like his father. He wants to run his estates and watch them flourish―and find a wife who brings love to his life. When he meets spirited and self-reliant Adeline in a case of near-scandalous mistaken identity, Lyon feels he’s met his match. But Adeline isn’t interested in a marriage proposal. She will only accept becoming his lover―and Lyon finds it hard to refuse. Unless the fire of his passion can melt Adeline’s resolve. . .
