She gave him love...and he betrayed her. Then a shocking tragedy left Natasha Simonov shattered. Suffering and loss only made her stronger...until, years later, the life she created came crashing down around her. Drawn into an exotic world of danger, intrigue, and adventure, she never dreamed that the man who betrayed her, the man she vowed to forget, would be the one to risk all, the one to show her the power of love and the magic of forgiveness.
He taught her heartbreak...and losing her almost destroyed him. Lord Trevor Hamilton discovered too late that he could not live without her. His all-engrossing passion for her doomed him to spend the remainder of his life in torment, haunted by the memory of a woman he could never have. Though he became a wealthy duke in the House of Lords -- a man of great influence and power -- tragedy made him driven and bitter. But then a voice from the past called out to him, forcing him to choose between all he possessed and a memory. Only Natasha's forgiveness and love could save him .... Only then would they have what they had too long been denied ....

Flora, foliage and gardening lore don't make up for patchy plotting in this romance form the author of Heavan Knows. Anthony Hamilton inherits the title of Earl of Marsham, along with his uncle's ramshackle country seat, prize greenhouse botanicals and his three Russian wards: Natasha Simonov and her brothers, the twin rapscallions Luka and Pavel. When Trevor Hamilton, Marquess of Haverleigh, learns of his younger brother's blossoming romance with his young ward, he hastens to Marsham to put a stop to it, since Anthony's marriage to a wealthy heiress is all that can save their botany-and butterfly-mad parents from total ruin. Known to London society as "Hellfire Haverleigh" for his penchant for wenching, privateering and tweaking Napoleon on the high seas, Trevor's machinations on behalf of Anthony and Lady Cecilia Stanhope are paralleled by his own ripening, contentious passion for Natasha. Roughened by ruffians, brutality and betrayal, Natasha retreats to the orderly world of gardening, becoming a horticulturist of note, until a dashing countryman offering her and the twins hope of a new life draws her into international intrigue. Coffman's writing is fleet and dexterous, and the narrative fabric is embroidered with a wonderful Englishness (with nary a nod to Russification), but the story line strains at the seams and zagged edges of the patchwork.
