She Can’t Forget Him…
Jane Charlotte Danes has loved the squire of her idyllic country town for as long as she can remember. He is good, kind, and alluring beyond words… and he chose to marry another. Tired of dwelling on her futile longings, Jane plans a move to Bath, where she dreams of a new beginning. But the man who has so imprisoned her heart is only a few steps behind…
He Can’t Let Her Go…
Until now, Matthew Cleaves has endeavoured to meet the responsibilities of his position with dignity and good spirits–including his dutiful marriage. But when his wife leaves him for another man, Matthew is at last free to pursue his one true love. Only one vital question remains: will the captivating, stubborn, beautiful Jane allow him the challenge, and the pleasure, of winning her back?

Having only ever read Rachel’s Templeton Cove series, this was a completely new departure for me. And a rather enjoyable one. Both Bath and the village of Biddestone are well known to me, so as I read I could actually visualise where the action was taking place.
Growing up with Matthew Cleaves Jane Danes has always loved him. Her most painful experience was to watch him marry someone else. But that someone has now abandoned him to be with another man. Since his wife’s departure Matthew has become an insular grouchy man, abandoning his responsibility as squire to the village. After running into sharp tongued Jane and her sister Monica he visits the local pub only to find himself facing some more home truths from barmaid Maggie. He realises how much his wife’s actions have affected not only him but those he is responsible for. It’s a wakeup call.
Now their elderly mother has died Jane has decided to take up residence in the family’s town house in Bath leaving her sister and brother in law to run their country home, the Marksville Estate. She plans an independent life doing something to help those less fortunate. When Matthew learns of this he’s concerned about the move. Despite her protests he insists on accompanying her to Bath to see her safely to the house.
Jane is very independent, totally at odds with her contemporaries who love to shop, take tea and gossip. She resents Matthew’s intrusion in her life but another part of her can’t deny the attraction she still has for him. Despite their tendency to rub each other up the wrong way, the two eventually realise they love each other. But it’s a forbidden love and one which has no future when he still remains married to his wife.
A lovely read about forbidden love and second chances.
