When Katherine "Kit" FitzGilbert turned her back on London society more than a decade ago, she determined never to set foot in a ballroom again. But when business takes her to London and she's forced to run for her life, she stumbles upon not only a glamorous ballroom but also Graham, Lord Wharton. What should have been a chance encounter becomes much more as Graham embarks on a search for his friend's missing sister and is convinced Kit knows more about the girl than she's telling. After meeting Graham, Kit finds herself wishing things could have been different for the first time in her life, but what she wants can't matter. Long ago, she dedicated herself to helping women escape the same scorn that drove her from London and raising the innocent children caught in the crossfire. And as much as she desperately wishes to tell Graham everything, revealing the truth isn't worth putting him and everyone she loves in danger.

Haven Manor series, Book 1

Oct 28, 2019

Lovely! Graham, Lord Wharton, finds relief from boredom by meeting a striking woman in green behind a potted palm. The mysterious Kit, Katherine FitzGilbert, has escaped the ton after an incident that resulted in an unexpected baby. Now Kit works to protect women and their children from the titled men who took advantage of them. But the residents of Haven Manor, the hidden foster home she founded, have no idea that her persuasive style in obtaining parental support involves threatening to air other dirty laundry discovered about the fathers. Curiously, Graham finds himself in a secluded forest where the “hidden treasures” are secretly cared for. He discovers that children can be endlessly entertaining, while the kids are delighted to have a father figure who is a great storyteller. The precarious state of the refuge, especially after rumours begin to swirl and safety is in question, keeps the pages turning.
