About The Book:
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 to raising the innocent children caught in the crossfire. But as much as she desperately wishes to tell Graham everything, the risk of revealing the truth may come at too high a price for those she loves.
I absolutely loved this book! From the very beginning it had me hooked! I loved Kit's wit, her zeal to help others. She was just what Graham needed. And vise versa! He brought light back into their lives. I loved Graham! A lot of books have it where the girl is the one brightening up the guys life. It was great to see that role reversed with Graham trying to make her laugh and smile. Even though this book dealt with illegitimate children it was totally clean. And really, how could you not fall in love with the kids?
The whole story was wonderfully written, pulling you in till you felt the pain right along with Kit, Graham, and the whole gang. Kit learned a valuable lesson in letting go of the past and forgiving yourself. Sometimes that can be the hardest thing, forgiving yourself. This book really makes you think, not only about the characters lives, but about your own as well.
So yes, I really did love this story and I can't wait for the next one!

That was what Haven Manor was about, wasn't it? A fresh start? A life where your mistakes didn't define you?
