Review: After the Storm by Claudy Conn

Title: After the Storm
Author: Claudy Conn
Genre: Historical Romance 
Release Date:

No matter what her family and friends say, Jenny knows she will never fall in love again. How can she, when her childhood sweetheart was one of the countless killed at Waterloo?

So when the Earl of Danfield proposes a marriage of convenience, it seems the perfect solution. He will secure his inheritance, and she will be spared the necessity of being paraded in society, forced to dance and flirt and do all the things her broken heart cannot do. His proposal will give her what she wants most. Peace. 

But peace is the last thing she finds in her marriage. Her growing attraction to the earl brings with it guilt that she’s betraying her beloved Johnny. Her mother-in-law considers her an interloper. Her husband’s former lover makes it clear she doesn’t want it to be former. And when a supposed prank nearly kills her, Jenny has to wonder—now that the earl’s inheritance is assured, has she become an inconvenience to be eliminated?

**note: this is an updated version of an earlier novel written as Claudette Williams. The updated versions of Claudy's Claudette Williams titles are more sexually explicit than the original versions.


5 out of 5 Hearts

This is a very well written Historical Romance story, fast paced, and easy to follow. I listened to the audio version of this read. Beautifully narrated.

Jenny of Ashley Grange is heartbroken and still in mourning for her life long friend, her fiance, and love of her life who lost his in the Battle of Waterloo.

She meets the Earl of Danfield, Jason, on a walk and the story twists into an agreement between Jenny and the Earl on a marriage of convenience which benefits each of them in different ways.

There is someone who is in bad sorts and is trying to create serious problems between Jenny and Jason or is it something else at the heart of the matter.

There is mystery, sensuality, love, suspense, and steam... I fell for these characters hook, line, and sinker. The world is so well portrayed I could close my eyes and visualize it.

Recommended if those over 18+
