About the book:
Miss Onyx Hamilton is about to make what everyone agrees is a perfect marriage—until handsome Major Jack Beresford comes galloping into her life. But with his fortune and connections, Onyx knows he’d never ask for her hand, would he? New and longtime fans alike will relish this delightful romance from Carla Kelly. Charming, sweet, and full of fun, it’s simply impossible to stop reading.
A terrific book and from a first time author for me. Onyx was always told what to do , who to talk to, who to marry etc etc. Jack is shot while trying to help Onyx when their carriage is taken over and their world is about to change. You will need tissues. The author does a wonderful job with this story and I am anxious to check out her other works. She knows how to write characters that will leave something behind in your thoughts.
