Help A Bitch Out - SOLVED!

HaBO: Hero Abandoned on the Docks

You did it! We figured this one out! It is a truth universally acknowledged (by me for certain) that the Bitchery pretty much knows everything, and really, it's true. Scroll down to see the solution for this HaBO - and many thanks!

This HaBO request is from Susan, who is searching for a historical romance:

Hero’s backstory: He is the son of a Duke (?) and his mom hates his dad so much she drops the hero off on the London docks/Thames waterfront when he is a small child. He gets put to work as a mudlark along with other young boys. When he is years older, maybe 8 to 12 yeas old, his father somehow finds him and takes him back into the life he should have led.

He’s married and the heroine also has a troubled past. Her mother died in a carriage accident on a bridge over the Thames, and there is some controversy about a missing necklace. In the end the hero proves his love by using the mad skills he developed as a child (as if, just got to love these bananas books!) swimming underwater. He dives down and miraculously finds the lost necklace.

How deep is that dive?

    Props to Ms. Romain!
    Nothing in the description rang a bell – and for once I’d actually read the HABO. Now I have to go reread it because Duke abandoned on the docks and miraculous underwater necklace recovery? How do you forget something like that? I need to see a neurologist.

    Yep it’s the Eloísa James and the story of him being found is in an earlier book- a duke of her own. Which happens to be my favorite one of her books!
