"a lady at willowgrove hall" by sarah e. ladd

Fans of Regency Romance will love Sarah E. Ladd's latest novel, A Lady at Willowgrove Hall.

Her secret cloaks her in isolation and loneliness.

His secret traps him in a life that is not his own.

Cecily Faire carries the shame of her past wherever she treads, knowing one slip of the tongue could strip away everything she holds dear. But soon after accepting the position of lady's companion at Willowgrove Hall, Cecily finds herself face-to-face with a man well-acquainted with the past she's desperately hidden for years.

Nathaniel Stanton has a secret of his own—one that has haunted him from birth and tied him to his father's position as steward of Willowgrove. To protect his family, Nathaniel dares not breath a word of the truth. But as long as the shadow looms over him, he'll never be free to find his own way in the world. He'll never be free to fall in love.

When the secrets swirling within Willowgrove Hall come to light, Cecily and Nathaniel must confront a painful choice: Will they continue running from the past . . . or will they stand together and build a future without the suffocating weight of secrets long suffered?

Sarah E. Ladd is quickly establishing herself as a must-read regency romance author. A Lady at Willowgrove Hall provides just the right amount of romance and intrigue. As the story began, I thought I wasn't going to like Cecily at all, but her experience at the beginning really shaped her, and I came to love the woman she became. I definitely appreciate characters who evolve through a novel!

While this is the third book in Ladd's "Whispers on the Moors" series, it's only loosely connected to the others, and you could very easily read this book with no knowledge of the others. I will say it didn't have as much suspense as I expected (I just thought the secrets would have more weight and would be used against Nathaniel and Cecily more than they were), but it was still a very satisfying read. 4 stars.
