The Lady Flees Her Lord - Michele Ann Young

Title: The Lady Flees Her Lord
Author: Michele Ann Young
Publisher: Sourcebooks
Published: 2008
Pages: 401
Genre: Historical Romance

I loved this quick and easy read. It was filled with sexual tension, steamy passion, intrigue, and suspense. The characters were so believable - not your typical beauty queen heroine. Lucinda was "unfashionably plump" and I identified with her and felt compassion for her. Hugo was the tragic hero and even though he had a gruff manner - you could see the hurt and tenderness inside.

Lucinda, posing as a widow, was on the run from an abusive husband. She settles in a quiet countryside village where she meets Hugo - a man tormented by the deaths of his mother and wife. Both believe that love is beyond them - Lucinda because of her looks - and Hugo because he has sworn not to inflict his love on another innocent person.

Michele Ann Young pens a beautiful story that will have you believing in unconditional love.
