About the Book:
With devastating scars in her past, Serena Winthrop is sure no man can be trusted--especially not a man like the too-smooth Viscount Carmichael. His reputation as a flirt and a gambler is everything she despises. And the young artist makes sure that this disreputable heir to an earldom knows of her deep disapproval whenever they encounter one another.
Henry, Lord Carmichael, is perfectly aware of his charms. He's gambled with plenty of ladies' hearts as easily as he has with their husbands' money. But lately he's wondered if there's more to life--and if his actions might prove unworthy of an admirable wife such as his friends have found.
When Serena's guardian asks his best friend to protect his young ward, Henry promises to be on his best behavior and not to woo her. But the more he learns of her, the more he realizes she might be his best reason for changing his character.
Then the lady's painting leads her to London infamy. Now Henry must choose between the life mapped out for him as the earl apparent and the love of his life. And Serena's secret may mean the end of his titled family line.
Miss Serena's Secret is a beautiful portrayal of God's grace covering our dark pasts and giving us hope. Both Henry and Serena's lives are changed by this truth. As Henry's feelings for Serena shift, his past mistakes and rakish character cast a shadow over the future he wants to have with her. Both his grandmother and his best friend, Jonathan, help him understand that in Christ he is a new creation and can choose a different path as an honorable man for his future. Serena, likewise, feels unworthy of Henry's love as abuse from her past from someone she trusted and an ominous medical diagnosis make the hope of one day being Henry's wife seem unattainable. It is with Henry's steadfast love and the understanding that God can overcome all things that Serena discovers all that awaits her. A beautiful romance with a love that grows deeper with every page turned!
