One night, they found themselves under some mistletoe.
Now, he owes her a kiss. And she is determined to claim it.

HIS HEART TORN in two, Graham Astor, Duke of Kensington, mourns his wife. As he distances himself from everything that reminds him of happier days lost forever, he comes to realize that there is one thing he cannot run from.

Graham needs a new wife, if only for the sake of his daughter.

DISILLUSIONED WITH LOVE, Rosabel only wishes to not remain a burden to her uncle’s family much longer. After seeing her parents’ love turn against them, Rosabel dreams of an independent life as a governess.

But then a stranger asks for her hand in marriage, and to her utter shock her uncle instantly agrees.

Will Rosabel find love after all? Or will the memory of Graham’s late wife keep him from finding happiness?

*Although certain characters appear in multiple books, 'Forgotten & Remembered - The Duke's Late Wife' can be read as a stand-alone. However, in order to avoid spoiler, I'd advise against reading them out of order.

  • I loved this!

    By Pua B Smith
    Amazing plot line and so well-written
  • Wonderful

    By Louisianablondie
    A beautiful story of heartaches, and then newfound love. Well written.
  • Blah

    By KeAnFr
    Don't waste your time. Just drags on and on, same thing over and over.
  • How do you fall in love with someone you never spend any time with?

    By JB4RTR
    This is a poorly written story. The plot sounds promising but just doesn't ever develop. He thinks untrue thoughts about her. She thinks untrue thoughts about him. She spends the majority of the story reading about his late wife. When they both admit to themselves they have feelings for the other, I am at a loss as to how. They literally don't even live in the same house and actively avoid and run away from each other. Bree needs more study on plot developments.
  • Intriguing, then fizzles

    By truefeather77
    This author displays one of the key Shortcomings of Romance Novels in general: taking shortcuts, having too many scenes left out or merely referred to after the fact — she tells you what’s going on, instead of showing you and letting you see it for yourself. Too many things happen offstage, or (as TV shows are fond of saying), happen "over the summer." This is especially true of the “falling in love” part. The characters keep noticing that their feelings are changing, but we are not told how or why. “This is a romance novel, you dummy — what did you think was going to happen?" The second major Shortcoming of Romantic Novels goes hand in hand with the first: because there are so few plot events, deleted scenes, the page count has to be made up with dithering. In this book, both the male and the female lead characters spend most of the book going round and round in circles in their heads, which just gets tedious. I love that this is NOT one of those stories that just dump events on you, increasing in the level of bizarre improbability. But spending a whole book inside two neurotic people’s heads (one of whom is despicable at times), robs the story of the interest it was building. A third Shortcoming of Romantic Novels: none of the characters are real (3-D) except the hero and heroine. This book started out a bit intriguing, although the absolute lack of encounters between the leads weakened it considerably. There were characters taking shape, and charming moments of tenderness with a child, startling confrontations both good and ill, relations to develop with the staff as this woman was being forced to assume a new life and station in society. But all of that, by halfway through the story, evaporates. Two characters just disappear completely, even the child just becomes a bone to be argued over, and the charming uncle who started it all and promised his help, disappears but for a cameo in the epilogue. All to make room for more dithering. So it started off weak but with promise, and just petered out from there, to the point that I realized that I was no longer really rooting for them to get together, and wondered how they could possibly make the shifts they were making. On the positive side: I loved their developing passion once they got tired of dithering — it was believable for a 19th century couple. Too often people write a Regency or other period novel, and have the characters behave like 20th century jetsetters, doing things that would set people of that time on their ears. Ways and customs were very different. Her couple are believably innocent and nervous, and I found that charming and endearing. OH — and please, gods and goddesses of the Internet, please make it impossible to publish something without editing. Please! At least proofreading. Reign vs. rein, and other such glaring gaffes, are easy to fix, and as unnecessary as they are off-putting.
  • A bit redundant..

    By Olderheart
    Somewhat long due to the redundant main issue, which caused the story to drag on and on... It took too long to reveal important facts, and the lack of closure overshadowed the love story. In my opinion anyway!
  • Good Book

    By ClaudiaS1234
    It was a good book. However, it felt a little long and repetetive at times. I also found several grammatical errors. Overall a good read.
