Helena, Countess of Crewe, had gone through nine years of marriage to a man she loathed. She wanted to be free and to just live her life. She did not want to find another man to be with but Lord West will tempt her with wanting more.
Vernon Grange, Lord West, has loved Helena but was too young to realize it at the time. After ten years West was finally going to pursue Helena and would not stop until she was his.
Winning Lord West is the third book to the series Dashing Widows by Anna Campbell. I really liked this story. I had been waiting for Helena and West because there was always that connection between them.
The plot surprised me with West. You knew that he wanted Helena and that he wanted marriage because he loved her, but West had gotten sick while in Russia. I was really hoping that the sickness wasn’t going towards a premature death for West. What I liked with West was that he did put his heart on the line with Helena. He pursued because he truly loved her. I also liked that Campbell went back to the picnic that was in the first book which let you see what was said between West and Helena. So Helena’s character is very much a woman who doesn’t want to be with anyone because she had enough hurt for the last nine years. She didn’t want to open her heart up again. I liked that she was brave to do just that and because of that she became a stronger woman emotionally.
There is an epilogue which goes into what is happening several years later. I like it when authors do that so as the reader I know a little more on the characters and whether they are happy or not. Overall this was a really good series to read but this series is not over as I had thought. There is another book out Pursuing Lord Pascal which I will be reading soon.
