Secrets of Surrender by Madeline Hunter

From the back of the book:

He catches her eye across the dining room – a handsome stranger who stands out among the lewd noblemen and bawdy painted women. But their worlds are about to collide in a way Roselyn Longworth could never have imagined. For before the night is out, she will be auctioned off to the highest bidder…and Kyle Bardwell will lead her from one kind of hell to another. Yet from the moment her wins her, Kyle treats Rose with a gentleness she hasn’t know since a family scandal destroyed her reputation. And when she finally learns what is really driving Kyle, it’s too late. for Rose has fallen for the man who knows her most intimate secrets. Now he has stunned her with a proposal of marriage – the first step in a seduction that will demand nothing less than her complete surrender…

Rose Longworth is a woman with a lot of trouble. First, her family is in ruin due to her brother’s criminal activities. Second, she engages in an affair where she had thought she was in love, but wasn’t. Third, Rose has been placed for auction and the highest bidder will get to do whatever he wants with her. I really felt sorry for Rose. Most of her problems were not of her making. Kyle Bradford is a man that doesn’t really belong. He was born in a coal mining town and has risen to be a man of means. Not quite a common man and definitely not an aristocrat. He sees Rose and wants her, but knows that she is too good for him. The passion that evolves between these two is very sweet. Kyle wants to take care of Rose and not let the turmoil in her life hurt her anymore than in has to. Through the story they learn to overcome the past and focus on the future. This book is a recommended read for anyone looking for a sweet love story that starts on rocky ground.

(This is the third book in the Rothwell series. You do not have to read the first two books to understand what is going on in the story.)
