Hannah Reid wed the Duke of Dunbarton when she was nineteen years old. Eleven years later, Hannah is a widow and free to pursue her life as she pleases. And she is pleased to announce that she wants a lover setting her sights on Constantine Huxtable.
A SECRET AFFAIR is the final book in the series featuring the Huxtable family. Ms. Balogh has saved the most enigmatic member of the family for last. In the beginning, Constantine was cast in the light of a villain but his true qualities have been uncovered. He is a very complex man but readers know that he is a man capable of deep emotions. Hannah is very much a “Balogh” heroine. She is not a virgin nor is she very young. I have always enjoyed her heroines as they are usually intelligent and capable of standing up for themselves. Hannah is a woman who is matured and experienced in life. She is a very nice match for Constantine. It was very entertaining to watch the interplay between them.
Of course, the members of the Huxtable family make appearances and it was nice to seem them again. I have always enjoyed seeing what happened after the “happily ever after” and Ms. Balogh certainly gives us the opportunity.
A SECRET AFFAIR was an enjoyable read. It kept my attention and the pages turning. Readers will definitely want this book as it is a fine finale for this series.
THIS IS NOT AN ENDORSEMENT OF THIS BOOK. THIS IS AN OBJECTIVE UNBIASED REVIEW
