ARC Review: Waltz with a Stranger [Mass Market Paperback]



I've finished "Waltz with a Stranger" by Pamela Sherwood.

Product Description

"May I have this dance?"

Aurelia wasn't hiding exactly. She just needed to get out of the crush of the ballroom — away from the people staring at her scar, pitying her limp. She was still quite enjoying the music from the conservatory. And then a complete stranger — dashing, debonair, kind — asked her to waltz. In the strength of his arms, she felt she could do anything. But both would be leaving London soon.

When they meet again a year later, everything has changed. She's no longer a timid mouse. And he's now a titled gentleman — with a fiancée. Is the magic of one stolen moment, one undeniable connection enough to overcome a scandal that would set Society ablaze and tear their families apart?

My Review:
 
Aurelia Newbold an American heiress avoids large crowds and men because she is left scarred from a horse accident.  That is until she dances a waltz with a handsome and kind gentlemen who doesn't care about her ailment.

James Trelawney is entranced by the blond beauty but he has no title, money or lands to court her properly.  They part ways never expecting to see each other again.

When they meet again a year later Aurelia is no longer the shy wallflower he first encountered that night.  James has acquired a new earldom but he needs funds so he becomes engaged Aurelia's twin sister Amy.  The attraction still burns brightly between them but they have to keep their feeling to themselves since both don't want to hurt Amy.  

Aurelia feels guilty about her feelings about James and I really admire her for sacrificing her own happiness to not hurt her sister.  James also doesn't want to hurt Amy but threatening letters and a pushy ship captain force both of them to work together and finally admit their feelings for each other.

4/5
