|What a gorgeous cover!|
Regency England once again sparkles to life under the pen of inspirational author Laurie Alice Eakes in A Reluctant Courtship.
The third and final installment in the Daughters of Bainbridge House series starts with a cliffhanger--literally. When Honore, an aspiring authoress, is rescued by her handsome neighbor, Meric, Lord Ashmoor, however, the trouble is just beginning.
It doesn't help matters that Honore, whose previous suitors include a traitor and a murderer, has been banished by her family to live in the country estate to keep her out of trouble. Meric, too, has known the touch of scandal, no thanks to his American upbringing and the nasty allegations that he helped prisoners escape from Dartmoor. He needs a wife above reproach. And Honore is definitely not that.
Honore insists on helping Meric prove his innocence, but quickly, it becomes apparent that danger surrounds them at every turn.
Readers who enjoy Regency romance will thrill at the sparkling dialogue and historic references, as well as the way the characters must maneuver within the structures of their society. A Reluctant Courtship is a fitting end to the series, although it stands alone well indeed.
I received this novel from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
