STORY-LINE LOVE TOUCHED HEARTS, VALENTINE’S DUEL BY ISABELLA THORNE:

In Love Touched Hearts containing Valentine’s Duel by author Isabella Thorne, the reader finds Miss Mary Highland and her family.  Mary’s tanned skin color and dark hair, far different from her sisters fair skin and blonde hair, sets her apart.  Mary’s in love with her brother’s best friend, Captain Vincent Darten.  Just back from the war, he cut a large swathe through society.  Never mind the fact he’s engaged to another, Mary’s heart belongs to Darten.

Helen, her bluestocking sister, dropped a valentine, which Mary picked up and threw in a drawer long with the accompanying note/poem containing strange numbers.  Why would Helen receive this strange lace valentine? Then of all things, Darten kissed Mary.  Still on a high from his kiss, her father tells Mary, she’s to wed the Baron of Millersmit.  What did it all mean?  How could she marry another when she loved Darten?  What was Helen hiding?  A lot’s happening in this household.  My romance review of Love Touched Hearts, Valentine Duel follows.
