screen-shot-2017-01-16-at-8-50-29-pm1796
Lord Trent grew up admiring the relationship of his parents. He saw them in an amorous and sincere marriage in their home. His older brother would probably marry first and that was fine with him because he wanted to take his time finding the perfect match. After all, his brother was the first born and bound to be the next Duke. But as they say, there are traps hidden everywhere; wealthy and prominent people must watch their steps. So with honor attached to his character, he finds himself in a precarious and private situation with a lovely but mousy girl as he does some exploring on a nearby estate. He must now marry without love lest he scandalize his family name and ruin her name. Neither were at fault. How will God teach and direct their lives through the early days of living together when they never even courted? Faith and Grace. Read and enjoy this warm tale.
