Widowed Alabeth Manvers has long blamed Sir Piers Castleston for the death of her rakish husband Robert, so she is distraught when she encounters him on her return to London society. Her task of chaperoning her young sister Jillian through the Season looks doomed to failure.
Then the musical maestro Count Adam Zaleski appears on the scene and to Alabeth’s dismay is the image of her late husband. When she spurns his attentions the Count turns his eyes towards Jillian, and the only help available is being offered by the hated Sir Piers.
Rakehell’s Widow is another lovely romance from Sandra Wilson. The feisty heroine and misunderstood hero are perfectly matched, and their sparky encounters provide some really entertaining scenes. Well worth reading.
