Adeline has no one left after the death of her husband, The Duke of Wake. Instead of wallowing for a lifetime, she decides to move on from her painful past and open a school for girls who need the help and can benefit from various life skills. She definitely has no need for a man until she meets her neighbour, Lord Lyon.

He invokes tumultuous feelings and emotions inside of her. She needs to ignore them and the Lord but he vows to make it a difficult feat through and through.

This story was so so beautiful. I love a bold heroine who isn’t afraid to put egotistical men in their place. The one scene where Adeline runs in drenched and puts rich men to shame was so magnificent. I love her spirit. And I specially loved how much she loved the little girls. It was so pure.

Lyon is such a growly pouty man, I adore him so much. His attraction for Adeline and her boldness made me giggle so much. He was just so hot for her screaming at him. That’s a man we stan!! I swooned when he realized his feelings for her. It was such a pure moment and I can’t get over it.

It was definitely a very refreshing story and I love the way it was written. I am actually very excited for more books in this series.

4 Stars!

Adeline, Dowager Countess of Wake, is all on her own after her husband’s sudden death. The good news? Losing him allowed her to find herself.

Well, that is a whole ’nother story. . .

Lord Lyon, son of the two-timing Earl of Marksworth, wishes to have a respectable, loving wife someday. When he meets the beautiful and self-reliant Adeline, Lyon is instantly smitten.

Unless the fire of his passion can melt Adeline’s resolve. . .and he can find a way to be the Wickedly Wonderful Widow’s lover for all time?
