Wheaton, MO (Vocus/PRWEB) March 02, 2011
When Maxwell Brimley dies, his younger brother Nathanial “Nate” is set to inherit everything. But one woman stands between Nate and what should have been rightfully his by birth—his brother’s beautiful widow, Lady Adelaide Brimley. In My Brother’s Widow, author Candy McNabb weaves a sweeping historical romance that will rivet readers from beginning to end.
Even in death, Maxwell attempts to bend his brother to his will by stipulating an outrageous condition before he can claim his inheritance. Nate must marry Lady Brimley before the end of the year or everything including Adelaide’s inheritance will be turned over to the Crown. Resentful of the circumstances he finds himself in, Nate is frustrated and his first instinct is to walk away. But he couldn’t turn his back on his birthright nor abandon his brother’s widow in one of the worst sections of London.
When Nate finally encounters the angelic vision with hair of burnished gold framing an exquisitely sculptured face with teal green eyes, it brings forth dreams he has long buried and sworn to forget and awakens desires that have lain dormant. Adelaide is surprised at her intense physical reaction at the mere sight of Nate. Though they clash on their first meeting, their tension masks a mutual attraction that both are too proud to admit. Adelaide wonders how it is possible to be attracted and yet repelled by the same person at the same time. Nate finds her to be an intriguing puzzle of beauty, intellect, vulnerability, and pride. Has Nate finally met his match and will their marriage of convenience give way to love? Readers can find out as they immerse in My Brother’s Widow.
