A heinous crime. A valiant hero. An undeniable temptation.

LADY CHARLOTTE FRAMPTON is dead…at least, that is what everyone believes.
Fleeing from her life-shattering past, Charlotte reinvents herself as Lotte and becomes the companion to a viscount’s sister. All she is hoping for is a simple and quiet life in the country, away from the demons that still plague her.
However, her safe haven is threatened when a visitor arrives one day.

SEBASTIAN CAMPBELL, son to the EARL OF WESTON, failed in the most miserable way…and his sister had to pay the price.
At his wits’ end, he seeks advice from an old friend, and as though fate chose to intervene at last, his path crosses that of a young woman with soulfully deep eyes. The pain and regret he sees in them echo within his own heart, and Sebastian knows without a doubt that he has found his other half.

Can Sebastian convince Charlotte that it is never too late for forgiveness and love?

This USA TODAY bestselling tale of Sleeping Beauty and her prince shows that no matter how broken you are, you can always find healing through the unfailing love of another.

  • wonderful story

    Author Bree Wolf created an intensely emotional book in Ruined and Redeemed. I don't think I have ever felt so sorry for anyone as I did Charlotte. From Wolf's vivid writing, I felt Charlotte's guilt, pain, fear, and absolute devastation. Wolf's insightful story-line revealed the harm emotional and physical trauma can cause to our mental health; resulting in the person becoming someone they do not recognize as them-self. As Bree Wolf developed Charlotte's character, I found myself in tears. As Wolf brought Charlotte from the abyss she had lived in for three years, she is like the Phoenix rising from the ashes; maturing her from a soul shattered replica of living to a woman of value. Will Charlotte find redemption? Sebastian's a man possessed by guilt, hatred, and resentment towards his father. Wolf skillfully developed Sebastian from single-minded vengeance to a man determined Charlotte will live life again; without fear and terror her constant companions. While at the same time he must protect his sister, Victoria, and find a solution to her situation. Bree Wolf created a fine hero in Sebastian; a good, trust-worthy, patient man, willing to protect his family at all costs. Don't we all need a Sebastian in our life? Victoria's married to a monster without morals or honor; desperately unhappy, she lives day-to-day with the horror of her life. Upon meeting Charlotte, they immediately formed a bond; Wolf created life situations for Victoria and Charlotte characters which they recognize are similar; as Victoria stated: only someone who has been there can relate. With many plot threads to bring together, Wolfe skillfully wove all the threads together to form a solid novel. She filled Ruined And Redeemed with hurt, anger, determination, devastating situations, family dynamics, redemption, and of course, sweet clean romance. I found her writing clear and easy to follow with well-developed characters. The pacing perfect for the length of the book and the story-line will grab your heart-strings. I loved this book and would not hesitate to buy this book for myself or a friend. I closed Ruined And Redeemed with a sigh of satisfaction for a day spent in reading pleasure.
  • Heartbreak and Healing

    By Peg1951
    Ruined and Redeemed has an intensely emotional plot that holds the reader’s attention start to finish. The characters are well developed and realistic. Their actions and interactions are believable. They are portrayed as flawed and damaged, yet strong and resilient. Charlotte, our heroine, has been ruined, rescued from the scoundrel, lost her betrothed, unintentionally killed a man, and nearly died in an asylum fire. Sebastian, our hero, and his sister Victoria were raised in a home with an arrogant tyrant of a father, who arranged a marriage between Victoria and a despicable man while Sebastian was on the continent. Victoria is miserable. All of this tragedy and the consequences that go with it were at the hands of one vile, manipulative, social climbing demon of a man. All of the characters in the story have been affected by his misdeeds. As it says in the story they are “heartbroken, inconsolable, and close to despair.” Fortunately, among them are people who not only share the feelings, but also understand them. The path to healing is long and hard. There is love and, hopefully, given time, the healing will come. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book.
