Bio:
Hazel
Statham began writing at the age of fifteen, finally committing to paper the
stories she spun as a child. Writing has been her passion ever since, although
marriage, motherhood, and career left time for little else. Once she retired,
however, she was able to devote herself to writing full-time, publishing her
first novel in 2007. A long time student of history, she writes mainly in the
Regency and Georgian eras, though she has been known to dabble in the medieval
as well. She lives in Staffordshire, England, with her husband, Terry, and
their beloved yellow Labrador, Mollie.
Hazel
loves to hear from her readers and promises to answer all mail.

Blurb:
How many times can a heart be broken?  How many times can love be denied?  Sarah and Alexander were destined for each
other, but after just four short weeks of marriage, their lives were torn
asunder.
   
Alexander, Earl of Thorne thought he had found
his ideal mate but, when Sarah absconded shortly after their marriage, his
world came crashing down.  Now, five
years later, he discovers her in a remote Yorkshire village.
  
Sarah had thought she was safe, but when severely injured in a freak accident, her husband is thrust once more into her
life, she fears her dark secrets and the fact she has a son, will become
known. 
  
Despite her own desperate longings, she
continually repudiates Alexander’s efforts of reconciliation. However, fate
conspires against her, and when her home is made uninhabitable by floods, she
and her young son are forced to accept his aid and return to her former home.
   
Discovery threatens and, despite her breaking
heart, she plans to leave Alexander’s life. 
What is this secret that makes it so imperative that she should abscond
from him yet again? Can two broken
hearts cleave and emerge victorious or will life’s cruel forces tear them apart
forever? 

Excerpt:
“There is no man with whom I live. I
am thought to be a widow by the villagers.”
   
“A widow? By God, you would feel so,
in fact, if I were able to leave this accursed bed. He would find no place to
be safe from me!”
   
“There is no one,” she cried, her
voice rising to the verge of tears.
   
“Then he has left you,” stated the
earl, coldly. “Taken what he desired and left you to bear the consequences
alone. Or did he discover your duplicitous nature and decide he would not play
the fool to your deception?”
   
“My nature is not at all as you
suppose, sir. I merely fell prey to a circumstance that has blighted my life.”
   
“Infidelity and desertion are
definitely circumstances that blight your life, and those who are associated
with you. When I sought your brother, it was reported that he had gone to
India. Even your grandfather is in ignorance of your whereabouts. I thought you
may have flown to him, but when I looked for you there, he had no more
information than I and the poor man is desperate for knowledge of you.”
   
“And if he should have that
knowledge, he would disown me and his life would be in ruin. It is best that
you and he should forget my existence. I have built a new life far removed from
your world.”
  
“You are still my wife, Sarah!”
