From USA Today bestselling author Josie Riviera comes the third heart-warming novel in the Romany Gypsy Seeking Series.
Do people prove their worth by strength, or by character?

Luca Boldor, Romany leader, lives a nomad’s life in Regency England with his Gypsy caravan. Believing his noble father abandoned him at birth, he refuses to acknowledge his English blood, or live a settled life. But when a vicious attack by a rival leaves him bleeding on an English lady’s doorstep, he has no choice but to accept her help. Her gentle faith stirs his heart in a way he has long denied.
Lady Patience Blakwell, widowed countess, lives in near poverty. Her husband’s heir uses threats to keep her from demanding her rightful inheritance. With a few faithful servants, she exists quietly in the country, only her faith keeping her strong … until the day a bold, handsome Gypsy collapses in her hall. He’s unlike any man she’s ever known, and she’ll confront any subterfuge to keep him safe.
But when a secret from Lady Patience’s past emerges, Luca must face his own past, or lose her and all hope of love.
Will this strong man humble himself to open his heart for his lady?

The head of a gypsy tribe and a widowed English countess worlds collide in this unique story. I haven’t read a story like this and was captivated from page one. The two main characters are so different from each other yet so alike. Wonderful layers to the characters and to the story. Very well written. I liked the characters. I really felt the emotions of the characters. Enjoyed learning about the gypsy life which was thoroughly researched. This sweet, Christian romance will warm your heart and leave you so happy you had the experience of reading it.
