The Genesis of a Book - An Enduring Love by Wareeze Woodson #equills

Genesis of An Enduring Love
The heroine loves her husband with all her heart, and through no fault of your own, the couple is separated. He falls in love with another woman. Consideration was given to the emotions of the heroine, wounded enough to pull her soul from her body, leaving only a shell, not dead but completely empty inside. Dying would seem a blessing, but the heroine remains alive, racked with pain, almost devastated beyond recovery. Still, women had few choices two hundred years ago.

Falsely informed of his wife’s demise, the hero eventually moves on with his life. When the heroine reenters his life, he does the honorable thing and accepts her, but his emotions are tangled as well. With great difficulty, he tries to school his wayward feelings.

Remember, the setting is two hundred years ago where men were not belittled in every commercial as they are today. Gentlemen controlled everything, the money and the guardianship of any children. He had to fight his confidence in himself to include her again. How many more mistakes could he make? I admire a woman with the fortitude to stick it out and fight for her love and her life.

The genesis of this story is the emotional turmoil each had to face on the long trip home.

 Blurb for An Enduring Love
 Born and raised in Latvia, Rebecca Balodis marries Rhys Sudduth, an English diplomat. Shortly thereafter, he is summoned home to attend his father’s death-bed. Rebecca cannot accompany him at the time and becomes trapped in the turmoil plaguing her country. He is informed she died in the upheaval. 

Nearly four years later, she escapes and arrives in London with their son in tow. Arriving in the middle of his sister’s ball is very awkward, especially since Rhys plans to announce his betrothal to a young debutante later in the evening.

Trouble, tangled in suspense and danger, follow her from Latvia. Can this pair ever find or even recognize an enduring love? Is it worth keeping?

Wareeze, this is a wonderful book. I wasn't a fan of Regency until I got hooked on your intriguing romantic suspense. You always take me to a place I've never been and create such intricate characters to entertain me. Love this one. <3

Great book, Wareeze. I highly recommend it. It is so much more than romance because of the mystery and suspense woven throughout the story.
