The Spinster's Secret - Emily Larkin

The Book
Release Date: 20 February 2013
Penniless spinster, Matilda Chapple, lives at isolated Creed Hall, dependent on the austere charity of unloving relatives and under pressure to marry a man twice her age. In an attempt to earn enough money to escape this miserable existence, she writes a series of titillating 'confessions'. Her secret is safe -- until battle-scarred Waterloo veteran, Edward Kane, reluctantly accepts the commission to uncover the anonymous author's identity.

While staying at bleak Creed Hall, Edward finds himself unaccountably drawn to his host's lonely niece. Can Matilda conceal the secret of her scandalous writings, or will Edward discover that the spinster and the risqué authoress are one and the same person? And when Matilda feels the need to experience sex as her fictional courtesan does--will she lose her heart to Edward, along with her virginity?

My Opinion  4 STARS
**Provided by Netgalley and Entangled Publishing, LLC for an honest review**

The hero in this book that, for the first time in what seems like forever is not physically beautiful. He his scars, missing fingers and part of an ear missing. It makes a refreshing change from perfect men.

The book has a lovely story and seems to be based loosely round pride and prejudice in some areas. She even has the characters reading the novel.

The relationship between the characters are a joy to watch unfold and feel believable for the era the book has been set it.

A lovely read.
