Review & Giveaway: The Second Time Around by Ella Quinn

The Second Time Around
by Ella Quinn


GENRE: Historical Romance



Can a beautiful Worthington widow find love again? Depends on who’s asking . . .

Before he died, Patience was the Earl of Worthington’s second wife. So why shouldn’t Patience be allowed a second chance at marriage, too? Of course, finding a new husband was not something the mother of four had ever planned on. But a surprise encounter with her first love has suddenly made the impossible seem possible all over again . . .

It seems like a lifetime ago that Richard, Viscount Wolverton, was halfway around the world, looking for adventure . . . while Patience, at her coming-out, was left with no choice but to take old Worthington’s hand. Richard never forgot the woman whose heart he yearned for—and now that he’s back, he’s not going to let her slip away again . . .


My Review:

I love historical novels and Ella Quinn in particular, her stories are original and very engaging. I really loved this story of love between two people no longer young.
Richard and Patience were in love but he felt the need to travel and know the world. When he returned she was going to marry the Earl of Worthington and her parents didn't allow him to approach her. Now she is a widow and free to fall in love again, even though she lives with her stepson because  her daughters are under his protection. If she marry again will have to leave them to live with him. Who can marry a widow with four daughters if not her first love? But worth the risk of losing her daughters forever?
The protagonists are well characterized, adorable, believable, and their attraction to each other sizzled. I loved them from the first page. 
It can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading the series in order to better appreciate the plot.
An engaging, delightful and brilliant Regency Romance of a second chance in love.



Patience gasped. Not loudly, she was much too self-contained to draw attention to herself. But Richard could feel her pulse jump, and he was pleased that he still had the ability to shake her calm, to make her react to him. He wondered if her old husband had been able to command her attention in the same way. The corners of his lips twitched. Probably not. Whether she knew it or not, she was his and always had been.

If only he hadn’t been such an idiot. Who forgets the year of his beloved’s come out? A young man who had traveled halfway across the world looking for adventure, that was who. By the time he had returned home, it was just days before her marriage to Lord Worthington. He had argued with her father to be able to see her, but it was as if her parents had locked her in the house. When they’d traveled to Town for the wedding, he had followed. However, his pains had been to no avail. Neither her mother nor father was going to let him ruin their plans for Pae. After all, an earl outranked the heir to a viscount. There was also the scandal that would ensue if she broke the betrothal just days before the nuptials. He would not have cared, but he was the only one. Even his parents would have been appalled if Pae jilted Worthington for Richard.

Too late. That is what everyone had told him. But he wasn’t too late now.
