I knew that C.S. Lewis and I had more in common than our Christianity when he said, "You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me." Welcome to a celebration of faith, tea, and the written word. I'm always engaged in a book, and whether it's one I'm reading or one of the inspirational historical romances I write, there's always a cup of tea close by. Join me in a cup as we chat about faith, our favorite books and the exciting places our reading and writing adventures take us.

A Reluctant Courtship

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.
