Introducing Katharine and Lucien
In the final installment of the At The Kingsborough Ball series, we meet Katharine Langdon, Lady Crossby, who’s struggled for years to keep the truth about her marriage hidden from the world. Now widowed for more than a year, Katharine is ready to venture back into society with a confident smile. But beneath the surface of her practiced façade rests a tortured soul full of pain and uncertainty. Experience has taught her to doubt herself, to feel unworthy of being loved and to mistrust others. Consequently, she has no intention of ever marrying again. But when Lucien Marvaine, Earl of Roxberry, returns after four years absence – a man whom she once considered a brother but whose unexpected departure from England and lack of contact thereafter have pained her greatly – she gradually begins to regain the optimistic spirit and sense of self-worth that were lost to her during her marriage. And while an element of danger is necessary for her to risk her heart once more and to see that Lucien will never hurt her by judging or ridiculing her as her husband did, but that he genuinely loves her regardless of the flaws she’s been led to believe she possesses. And while she’s hesitant to give in to Lucien’s advances for fear of losing his friendship when he discovers her imperfections, she eventually decides that if there’s any chance they might be happy together, then the risk is worth taking.
From the first page of the book, Lucien Marvaine, Earl of Roxberry, has one sole purpose: to make Katharine his. Having been in love with her for years and lost his chance to woo and marry her once before, he returns with a plan to open her eyes to him as a man, rather than the brother figure she’s always viewed him as. But he soon discovers that his task will be more difficult and complicated than he’d ever imagined, for Katherine has changed during his absence. The confidence and happiness she exudes seems forced, and Lucien has every intention of uncovering the reason why. Caring and protective, his first priority is to keep Katharine safe when danger strikes and he does everything in his power to do so, persistently searching for the villain even as he faces a family crisis. He his loyal and honorable to the bone, his love for Katharine unwavering – a true hero in every sense of the word.
