 Here is a brief blurb:

 

Can a shadowed heart be healed?  Can love grow where least expected?  The Earl of Waverly believes not.  How wrong can he be!

 

After the death of his wife, the Earl of Waverly, believing his heart irreparably damaged, enters into a marriage of convenience.  However, he is not prepared for the healing influence his new young bride has on his life.

 

Despite the couple’s  new-found happiness, nefarious deeds abound and strange happenings are attributed to the ghost of his former wife.  Will their love stand the test or will the perpetrator emerge the victor?

 

 

 


Excerpt

As in his own room, all was in darkness, but turning to where he knew the bed to be he raised the candles higher so that their glow spread across the room, illuminating the sleeping figure there.

Crossing to the bed, he knelt at her side and extinguishing all but one of the flames, placed the candelabra on a small table at the side of the bed. The shadows of the remaining light played across Caroline’s sleeping countenance and he smoothed a lock of hair that had strayed across her forehead. He knew the desire that his lips should follow his finger’s course, but even in his state of inebriation, he knew this would be foolish.

For several minutes, he watched his wife sleep, eventually placing his head upon the pillow beside her. His lips curved into a loving smile as his eyes drank in her sleep-softened countenance and he felt her breath caress his cheek. The longing to hold her became an almost physical thing and his arms ached with the suppressed desire. Eventually she stirred, muttering incoherently in her sleep, and he raised himself up. What foolishness is this, he thought. I am acting like a callow youth, and immediately he was on his feet.

Snatching up the light, he went quickly out of the room, closing the door quietly behind him.

His Shadowed Heart by Hazel Statham
Richard Moreton, Earl of Waverly, has absolutely no desire to marry again. After the death of his first wife Elizabeth, Richard is determined to never open his heart to that kind of pain again. However, he can’t deny his need for an heir to inherit his title or his young daughter’s need for a mother.




When he meets Caroline Northam he is immediately charmed by the younger woman. She is shy but intelligent and she gets along very well with his daughter. He decides that a marriage of convenience is the answer to all his problems and Caroline is the perfect choice.



Caroline is flattered when Lord Waverly begins paying her attention, asking her to dance and walking with her in the park. Caroline is surprised to find herself falling in love however, she knows that nothing can ever come of her feelings. She is shocked and thrilled when Richard proposes but he makes it clear that theirs will be a marriage in name only. Can Caroline be happy knowing her love will never be returned?



HIS SHADOWED HEART by Hazel Statham is a richly detailed and well-written historical romance. The author’s language has an old-fashioned and formal feel that adds authenticity to the story and enhanced my enjoyment of the novel. The plot has plenty of interesting twists and turns and an intriguing mystery that kept me glued to my seat. Caroline and Richard share a wonderful connection. Their love is very strong. I look forward to reading more from Ms. Statham in the future.
