A brief introduction to what a family reunion is.
Harlequin Historical Regency romance, book 2 in Faringdon series. "We think it would be best if you kept your distance from Lord Nicholas." "And if I don't?" But in Thea's heart she already knew the answer. "Maybe nothing. Perhaps you would fall in love and marry. But if he discovered the truth, would Lord Nicholas continue to look on you with love--or would he turn his back with condemnation and contempt?" "I could not bear that." A tear stole unnoticed down Thea's cheek. She knew what she had to do. She must set herself to destroy any vestige of the relationship that might have begun to blossom between herself and Lord Nicholas. It should not be too difficult, should it, to give him a disgust of her if she really tried? To make him wonder what he had ever seen in her? No one must guess. Not Lord Nicholas. Not ever Nicholas. And whilst Thea found herself reduced to the blackness of utter misery, Lord Nicholas Faringdon was equally prey to extreme emotions. Against all the odds he had fallen in love. He wanted nothing more than to ask for the lady's hand in marriage. She fired his blood. She intrigued him. She entranced him. If he had his way, Miss Theodora Wooton-Devereux would become Lady Nicholas Faringdon in the shortest possible time. A smile of satisfaction touched his mouth. There was nothing in the manner of that lady toward him that might indicate that she would not welcome his addresses. Some sex scenes.
