A True Gentleman

They say reformed rakes make the best husbands. They were wrong.


Ten years ago, Tabby Russell married the man of her dreams. Or so she thought. The reformed rake had seemed vastly appealing when she was younger, but as life marched on and his old habits returned, Tabby realized too late that she should have chosen wiser when facing the marriage altar.


But there is no undoing the decisions of the past or avoiding the ensuing consequences. Even if Tabby wishes otherwise.


Overwhelmed by her husband’s irresponsible lifestyle and suffocating debt, Tabby’s life unravels around her until she is forced to relinquish her home and privileged life to become a lowly servant to a most irritating and demanding sailor.


Captain Graham Ashbrook loves the sea and the navy, but between one breath and the next, that life is ripped away from him when a French cannonball strikes his ship. Crippled and desperate, Graham finds himself trapped at his sister’s estate as he struggles to heal his broken body and reclaim what he lost—at any cost.


But when his sister hires an intriguing and far too beguiling nurse to watch over him, Graham finds himself wondering if a life on land might not be such an awful thing. Even if the lady in question is determined to keep him at arm’s length…


Set in Regency era England, A True Gentleman is a sweet romance about choice and accountability, duty and honor, and the joy that can be found even in the darkest of moments.


Though part of the Regency Love Series, it is a standalone story, and the entire series can be read in any order.

Goodreads Review

"Her stories draw me in and keep me there. I like the charachters have depth. There is a message or meaning in her stories but there is no moralizing. It gives you food for thought."

"I read the first book in the series and loved it, so I anticipated the second book's release. It did not let me down... I really enjoyed it and it was so hard to walk away from. [Nichols'] writing pulls you in... I look forward to her next book and will look into other books."
