Earl of Darby was a great 5 star read and book 4 in the Once Upon A Widow series.
We start out with a heartbreaking tragedy that left Nicholas reeling with all that was revealed. This tragedy has made a big impact on him and the fact he doesn’t celebrate christmas. He has built up walls and has avoided women as well.
Hannah is getting ready for her first season. She has her sights set on one specific man, Gideon, however when she finds out he has eyes on someone else she is devastated. When her brother has to go home to be with his wife, he leaves her in the care of his best friend, Nicholas. When Hannah meets Nicholas she is instantly drawn to him.
When Hannah catches the eye of someone very dangerous, things take a scary twist.. Can Nicholas keep Hannah safe? Will they give into their attraction?
Overall I really enjoyed this read, I liked watching these two slowly come together. I really liked Nicholas and I wanted to see him happy again, Hannah was perfect for him. My emotions were all over the place. This was a Christmas love story with a twist and I loved it. This is a must read series and I look forward to reading more from this author.
