Orphaned and raised by her uncle, the feisty
sixteen-year-old Chelynne resolves to show her gratitude by marrying the man of
her uncle’s choice. Bracing herself for a graying, sickly noble, the last man
she expects for a husband is the dashing future Earl of Bryant, Chadwick
Hawthorne. Suddenly, being a loving wife doesn’t seem too hard a task. But he
spurns her affection and remains her husband only in name, never in deed.
Tormented by unfinished business from his past and an uprising threatening his
land, Chad resolves to keep his distance from everyone, including his young
wife. Chelynne will go to any lengths to ignite her husband’s passion and save
their marriage. But when she finally goes too far, the Earl must share his dark
secret before Chelynne loses her reputation, or worse, her life. Set during the
English Restoration, Chelynne is filled with political conspiracies, family
secrets, and shocking affairs, creating a deliciously complicated plot. Download and start listening now!
