Sorrow and Regrets…

Lady Helen was a young, naïve girl when she gave up everything for a charismatic Irishman and eloped. Finding herself a widow after a few short years, she is disillusioned with love and raising a three-year-old daughter alone. Her homecoming will be bittersweet as she faces her family, asking forgiveness for the lies and the worry she has caused. But her first encounter in England isn’t a family member. Helen’s brother has sent a handsome Welshman to fetch her, and he soon charms both her and her daughter.

An unexpected ray of sunshine…

Conway, Earl of Griffith assumed his title and Welsh estate at birth. His world is gray, full of responsibility, and lonely. Griffith agrees to help a friend, escorting his sister from Bristol to London. At first sight, Lady Helen illuminates his dull world, and her daughter adds laughter to his life. But he senses the woman’s haunted eyes are not only from grief and wonders what secrets she holds close to her heart. As his affection turns to love, Griff must find a way to convince the beautiful widow that love is worth another chance.

A sweet Regency romance.

My Review:

Can heartbreak and regret turn to love and understanding? Aubrey Wynne writes sweet Regency romance that melts a reader’s heart. Earl of Griffith is her finest written book. The world-building combines with historical accuracy, engaging characters, sweet romance, family dynamics, and more to create an unforgettable read. I couldn’t stop reading and it left me with an uplifting feeling.

It starts and ends with the characters. Both Helen and Conway are characters you’ll connect with. Helen is a woman who has been through so much turmoil, so much grief, my heart broke for her. The last thing she expects is to meet a kind gentleman and fall in love. Conway does a favor for his friend and falls hard for his friend’s sister. These characters are so well written, by the time I finished reading, they became a part of me. The rest of the characters have their own voices and personalities.

The romance is slow-burn with a classic feel. The attraction is there from the beginning but it’s right in line with this period of history. The emotions are what make this romance shine. Every glance, every feeling, every yearning is expressed. I couldn’t get enough and found mystery reading late into the night.

Earl of Griffith is a poignant Regency romance filled with heartbreak and love. Aubrey Wynne has penned another outstanding historical romance.

My Rating: 5+ stars
