Content descriptions

General Note:
"Includes bonus excerpts from the Westcott novels"--Dust jacket.
Summary, etc.:
"It's never too late to fall in love in this enchanting new story, a novella set in the Westcott series from New York Times bestselling author Mary Balogh. Matilda Westcott has spent her life tending to the needs of her mother, the Dowager Countess of Riverdale, never questioning the life of solitude she has spun for herself. To Matilda, who considers herself the aging spinster daughter, marriage is laughable--love is a game for the young, after all. But her modest, quiet life of order unravels when a dashing gentleman from her past reappears, threatening to charm his way into her heart yet again. Charles Sawyer, Viscount Dirkson, does not expect to see Matilda Westcott thirty-six years after their failed romance. Moreover, he does not expect decades-old feelings to emerge at the very sight of her. When encountering Matilda at a dinner hosted by the Earl of Riverdale, he finds himself as fascinated by her as he was the first day they met, and wonders if, after all these years, they have a chance at happiness together. Charles is determined to crack the hard exterior Matilda has built for over three decades or risk losing her once again.."-- Provided by publisher.

    Thirty-six years ago, Matilda Westcott listened to her parents and cut off all ties with the only man she ever loved: Charles Sawyer. Since then, Matilda has spent her days devotedly caring for her mother, the Dowager Countess of Riverdale, and quietly fading into the background. Suddenly, after an unexpected connection is discovered between their families, Charles, now Viscount Dirkson, reenters Matilda's life. Avoiding Charles and clinging to her familiar way of life would seem to be the smartest course of action, but Matilda can't help but wonder if now is the time to take another chance on romance. After six superbly written entries in her Westcott family series (sample chapters of each are included in this volume), Balogh (Someone to Honor, 2019) now gifts readers with a splendidly executed novella, which not only refreshingly focuses on the passion shared by a mature couple, but also delivers the remarkable depth and complex characterization for which Balogh is known and loved. This is a gracefully written little gem of a love story by the Tiffany's of romance. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
