#Review: MARRY IN SECRET by Anne Gracie

   4 of 5 stars
Thomas Beresford could hardly believe he was married to Lady Rose Rutherford, a sixteen-year-old impetuous young lady. Their attraction was immediate and they spent a short blissful time together before he shipped out with the Royal Navy. When Rose learns the tragic news that Thomas and the entire crew died at sea, she saw no reason to tell her family about their secret marriage. Now four years later, Thomas has returned, but he's not the Thomas she married. Can they rekindle their love or has Thomas's horrifying experiences left him barren of any emotion, even for his sweet Rose.

This is the first book I've read by Ms. Gracie and I've definitely found a new author to read. She is a master storyteller, reigning in the reader with descriptions that jump off the page and make you feel what the characters are feeling. The story of Thomas was horrifying and tortuous and I wondered how Ms. Gracie would give him back his emotional well-being and I was not disappointed. Though I had figured out who the villain in the story was, I had not figured out the "why." This well written regency romance will certainly delight and enthrall fans who like some "meat" to their stories.

A voluntarily read an advanced reader copy and all opinions are my own.
