Review of Slightly Tarnished
by Callie Hutton

After American Nikki Keller’s father is lost at sea, along with his ship and cargo that would have paid the mounting bills, she and her mother are left homeless.  Mrs. Keller accepts an offer from her brother to make their home with him in England. Loath to leave America, Nikki accepts her mother’s decision.  So the two head to England to the estate of Henry Tidwell, Earl of Wellesley.

The Countess of Gilchrest is anxious for her son, Chadwick Masters, Earl of Gilchrest to remarry and produce the needed heir.  Although soured on marriage after his tumultuous relationship with his deceased wife, he understands his duty and fully intends to take a wife, just not the one his mother is so insistent upon.

Terrified at her uncle’s plans for her future, Nikki runs with her mother from Wellesley’s home into the dead of night.  Gilchrest comes across them and after hearing their story, brings them to his estate.  Although it starts out as a temporary arrangement, it soon becomes permanent, but Gilchrest is hiding a secret, and Nikki wants to know what it is.

Mystery, intrigue, love and romance all come together to form a satisfying story.  Nikki, her mother, and Gilchrest fight to protect themselves and others they love from the machinations of those who would destroy their very world.

A good story with strong characters and a satisfying plot, you’ll enjoy this one.
