They have a shocking argument, in which Lord Vaughan refuses to declare any love for her, and to her anguish is unwilling to give up his mistress. Henrietta wishes to call off the marriage, but knows it would ruin her family's reputation. However, Lord Vaughan too harbours a secret, one that could break Henrietta's heart, even wreck her life.
There is a certain prince, who is determined to have her, married or not, but what is his true title? A romance set in 1815 as the clouds of war gather over Brussels.

My Thoughts :
First let me say that I love historical romance.. It was my first love and I will always hold it dear! :) Lords and Ladies.. :sigh: I was born in the wrong time and on the wrong continent... lol.
Lady Henrietta's Dilemma is the 2nd book in the Lords of Sussex series. I was given the opportunity to read the 1st book as well. The author is doing a great job with these books! Something that I always love to see in a series is that each book gets progressively better. This definitely happened here! Part of it could be the tie to characters that you were already introduced to in previous books or maybe it's the twist in the story.. Either way, I loved the second installment!
Lady Henrietta -- what a lady! At first, I worried that her timidness and seeming disdain for any physical contact would make for a poor romance novel. How would we get past this? Thankfully, Lady Henrietta bursts the bubble of a shy timid creature and shows the world that she is a person of her own right and has thoughts/ideas of her own. Bravo!
While we are shown a bit of Lord Vaughn's character early in the book, even I was shocked at the depth of his behavior. You sir, need a sound thrashing!!
I was pleasantly surprised by the appearance of the "Prince" and couldn't wait for 'Etta and him to be together!
While this story mainly focuses on Lady Henrietta ('Etta), we do also get some glimpses into Lord Vaughn's mistress's life. You can't help but fall in love with her story and plight.
Overall, a great book to escape into! While it takes place in a time of upcoming war, the military aspect was enough to peak the interest but not enough to drown out the romance! Lots of twisting plots to keep you interested and dashing heroes to thrill our romantic hearts!
Thank you for having me here today. My main loves are writing, painting and singing. I began work as a PA but to my joy was spotted by an agent in London and had an exciting career as a singer, meeting and singing with some wonderful people. Singing meant a lot of travelling both in the UK and abroad. At one time, I toured Germany and Turkey singing for the American troops, which was a fantastic experience. But then, my husband and I wanted a family, so I said good-bye to the singing career, although I did the occasional gig. Having children is such a precious time, and I would say to anyone, treasure it, it goes so quickly and before you know it, you’re waving them off to Uni or pursuing their own dreams and their own homes. I have always had a deep interest in psychology for various reasons, and especially the area of neurosis arising from abuse. Later, I was to study how we could use our body, mind and spirit to relieve pain and overcome some life-threatening diseases. One important thing here is, I always told my patients to continue with medical treatment along with the complementary and spiritual methods, for I believe medical research and medication is also a gift from God, Spirit or the Universe, as each of us wishes to name it. I have loved writing from a child and during the years of study, research and treating some wonderful people, whom I called my friends, I would write at night, mainly short stories, and reams of poetry. I wanted to learn how to write self-help books for my clients, so I took creative writing courses at university, which led to writing a novel. So self-help novels turned to fiction but even so, I hope the novels help the reader through their own challenges, as the characters experience love, loss, passion, jealousy, illness, joy and conflict, even the threat of death. At present, I am writing the third book in the series ‘Lady Phillipa’s Peril’ and also putting together some ideas for the self-help book. This has been so enjoyable thank you.
