I have really enjoyed all of the books in this series and this one is certainly my favorite. After the death of Violet’s parents, her brother takes over their home and turns it into a brothel. Violet is now on her own if she doesn’t want to live in the brothel! Violet was a young lady who has never really been had to work and suddenly finds herself working as a receptionist. She is assaulted and Vance Everstone decides that he will be her champion and keep her safe. This is sort of an arranged marriage but where both parties didn’t want to admit it was one they both wanted. Lots of twists and turns with a wonderful ending!
ABOUT THE BOOK:
The Cautious Maiden (Everstone Chronicles)
Violet Hawthorne is beyond mortified when her brother Ezra turns their deceased parents’ New England country inn into a brothel to accommodate the nearby lumberjacks but when Violet’s own reputation is compromised, the inn becomes the least of her worries. In an effort to salvage her good name, Violet is forced into an engagement with a taciturn acquaintance&, Vance Everstone.
As she prepares for a society wedding, Violet learns that her brother had staked her hand in marriage in a heated poker game with the unsavory Rowen Steele, and Ezra had lost. Now Rowen is determined to cash in on his IOU.
With danger stalking her and a new fiancé who hides both his emotion and his past, Violet must decide who to trust, and who to leave behind.
