The Secret Lover

The Secret Lover

by Julia London

Now as companion to a worldly French widow, she returns to London where her arrival instantly sets tongues wagging?and attracts the roving eye of aristocratic Trevor Hamilton.

But it is his mysterious brother, Caleb, in whom Sophie senses a kindred soul--and who captivates her as no other man has before.

As scandal pursues them to a remote ancestral estate, a man and a woman haunted by the past will defy every convention on earth for a future in each other's arms?

What People Think about "The Secret Lover"

She is given to walks in the Park where she meets a young man with whom she feels comfortable and that is later revealed as Trevor Hamilton's half brother and Lord Hamilton's bastard son. There's a bit of a mystery surrounding Caleb, Trevor's half brother, we never know much about him and who his mother was and I think the story would definitely have been better if we had known more about his and Sophie's past. Sophie finds herself forced to choose between Trevor, her family's choice, and Caleb, the man she loves.

Bitti diye bir hüzün içine girdim ama en çok da sonu beni etkiledi. te o Sophie 8 yl sonra refakat ettii deli dolu çatlak bir Fransz olan Honoria ile Londraya geri dönüyor. Caleb bir vikontun gayr resmi olu ama varis olan ouldan çok daha canl çok daha neeli. Bir de asl varis Trevor gözünü Sophieye koyuyor ama onun nedenleri tamamen finansal. Ama burada bir sorun olduunu fark ediyor: Trevorun babasn bilerek uyuturduunu düünüyor ve ilaçlar içmemesini salyor. Yaklak 50 yllk bir zaman dilimini anlatyor ve Sophienin ölüp, Calebin ona yaknda katlacan söylerken bitiyor. Bu kitapta da beni sinir eden moronluklar oldu, hele Ann ve Claudiann Sophie ile bebekmiçesine konuup onun için doru olana karar vermeye çalmalar bir numarayd.

>< kenapa tidak berhenti saat mereka sudah tua sajaaaa....kenapa harus dikatakan sophie meninggal n membiarkan caleb sendrian d dunia....hiks...meratap bombai bacax...

Sophia (From Ruthless Charmer) is older and wiser after having foolishly run off to elope with an evil man at the age of 18. Yes, this story is set in a time where certain expectations can overrule everything else, but Sophia had thrown those expectations aside at the age of 18 and while she learned a lot in the intervening years, it didn't ring true to me that a fiercer acceptance of societal dictates was one of those things.

Usually when you read a series like this, there is a good chance that the other books will never be as good as the first.

Dihari pertama mereka di London, Honorine bertemu Lord Hamilton (yg lemah dan lumpuh sehabis terkena serangan stroke) bersama anak lelakinya Trevor dan cucunya Ian. Sedangkan sophie menemukan tempat yg sunyi dan tentram di Regent's Park untuk menghabiskan waktunya yg membosankan. Ditaman ini Sophie menemukan cinta dan kegairahan hidup setelah bertemu dan mengenal seorang pria bernama Caleb Hamilton. Gosip yg tidak sedap berembus bahwa Caleb adalah seorang penipu yg ingin mengambil keuntungan dari keluarga Lord Hamilton. Hari berikutnya Trevor mencari ayahnya dengan penuh kemarahan karena Honorine dan ayahnya yg biasa bepergian bersama tidak diketahui dimana keberadaannya. Keadaan semakin kacau dan heboh saat Trevor menuduh Honorine menculik Lord Hamilton untuk mengambil keuntungan dari keluarga Hamilton. Sophie yg mengetahui tujuan kedua orang ini dari Ian segera menyusul karena takut tejadi hal hal yg tidak diinginkan karena tekad Trevor yg ingin menyakiti Honorine jika tertangkap. Mereka berdua maklum akan kekurangan mereka masing masing (Sophie dengan skandal masa lalunya dan Caleb yg anak haram). Hal itu berkat Honorine dan tidak adanya obat yg biasa dikonsumsi oleh Lord Hamilton. Dan Honorine sempat curiga dengan obat obatan yg selalu diberikan oleh Trevor kepada ayahnya. Tapi kebahagiaan itu rusak dengan kedatangan Trevor yg langsung merebut ayahnya dan menjauhkannya dari honorine. Sophie mengirimkan surat kepada kakaknya julian yg berisi permintaan maaf dan keinginannya untuk menikah dengan Caleb. Dalam penyesalannya Lord Hamilton merasa beruntung memiliki Caleb yg walau seorang anak haram tetapi dapat dibanggakannya sebagai seseorang yg memiliki karakter yg tidak dimiliki oleh Trevor.
