The Return of her Sweet Lord

Aria Norton

Lady Hazel Wallace does not care for society’s expectations, so she just tromps through the countryside. Her dread surrounding the pressure of finding a husband is unexpectedly dissolved by the arrival of a rather dashing newcomer, who makes her heart skip a beat. Rumours of his dark past, though, make her protective father, the Duke of Coventry, forbid her from seeing him again. Heartbroken, Hazel embarks on a journey to find a husband, even though her heart already belongs to the newly acquainted Mr Hammond.

Has she truly been condemned to an eternal and loveless misery?

Benjamin Hammond has experienced a lifetime of dark looks and muted whispers, which he does not deserve. Involved in charity work overseas, his desire to do similar work in England prompts his return. An unexpected meeting with a beautiful, if not fascinatingly opinionated girl, triggers his feelings and a series of secret rendezvous. Yet, with another suitor after Lady Hazel’s hand, Benjamin fears the future…

Can he and Lady Hazel really have a life together, against all odds?

The heart knows what the heart wants, and with Mr Hammond and Lady Hazel, both their hearts yearn for the other. Their love is not without struggle though. As well as the differences in class, there are other menaces lingering to separate them. Will Hazel be forced to marry a dreadfully controlling lord? Or can Benjamin find a way to redeem himself from the past rumours?
