"A Return of Devotion"

A tie to her past is about to land on her doorstep... literally.
Daphne Blakemoor was perfectly happy living in her own secluded world for twelve years. She had everything she needed--loved ones, a true home, and time to indulge her imagination. But when ownership of the estate where she works as a housekeeper passes on, and the new marquis has an undeniable connection to her past, everything she's come to rely upon is threatened.

William, Marquis of Chemsford's main goal in life is to be the exact opposite of his father. Starting a new life in the peace and quiet of the country sounds perfect until his housekeeper turns his life upside down.

They've spent their lives hiding from the past. Can they find the courage to face their deepest wounds and, perhaps, find a new path for the future together?

My Review:

"A Return of Devotion" is book #2 in Kristi Ann Hunter's Haven Manor series and it is a great book and has left me wanting to read book #3.  Daphne and William are both wonderful main characters and  I thoroughly enjoyed their story.  Daphne has such a huge heart and she has been living a secret life for over a decade and the past is soon to catch up with her as well as how she has been living when William shows up at the door.  William knows that there is more meets the eye as things are not adding up and do not just seem quite right, but he just isn't sure just what is the true story yet.  Kristi does a great job with bringing these characters to life, the time period and society practices to life and a riveting story line that keeps you wanting to keep on reading and turning the pages from the very start to the very end.  This story has the themes of forgiveness and hope woven throughout it and it is a sweet read that will leave you wanting more!
