Her heart is her own--but her hand in marriage is another matter
Lady Charlotte Featherington is destined for great things on the marriage market. After all, as the beautiful daughter of a marquess, she should have her pick of the eligible nobility hen she debuts. She, however, has love at the top of her list of marriageable attributes. And her romantic heart falls hard for one particularly dashing, attentive suitor. Sadly for Charlotte, her noble father intends her betrothed to be someone far more dull.
William Hartwell may be a duke, but he knows he was Charlotte's father's pick, not the young lady's own choice. And the captivating Lady Charlotte does not strike him as a woman who will be wooed by his wealth or title. While she has captured his heart, he has no idea how to win hers in return--and the betrayal and scandal his first wife put him through makes it difficult for him to believe that love can ever be trusted. His only hope is that Charlotte's sense of responsibility will win out over her romantic notions.
Can a widowed duke and a romantically inclined lady negotiate a future and discover love beyond duty? Will they be able to find healing and hope from the legacy of grace? Poignant and charming, this is another beautifully written, clean and wholesome Regency romance from Carolyn Miller.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/Kregel Publications and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.
I am new to Ms. Miller’s work but I will tell you now, I will not be missing any more of her work! She is fabulous! I came into this series on this second book, but I wasn’t confused in anyway and I loved Charlotte and the Duke so very much. I am a big fan of the regency era when I read historical books so this book is going on my keeper shelf for sure.
Charlotte’s character really gripped me. I loved how Ms. Miller portrayed her and her unsuredness in having to choose who to marry if there aren’t feelings there. I really felt for her so much through this story. And the Duke!! Oh my heavens, yes please! I loved his character possibly more than I loved Charlotte’s! He’s a Godly character and I loved that in him, as it’s often times you see the women in stories as the more Godly ones. These characters truly came together in a wonderful way and I was so excited to feel a part of the regency era, watching them come to light in the faith and feelings!
I definitely recommend this book to all historical romance lovers. It’s the perfect blend of hope, longing, faith and God’s timing, and love. The characters will quickly become a part of you and you will get lost in a society of regency. This is 5 star worthy in my opinion and I can’t wait to go back and read book one, as well as anxious for the next faith-filled novel from this talented author.
What a beauty of a cover! I love Regency Romance.
Hope you’re enjoying your weekend. 🙂
I just finished the book myself and posted my review on Amazon, Goodreads, Barnes & Noble, Christianbooks.com and Bookbubs! Totally agree with your review. It was such a good read. And the Duke – what a real character he was! Not tall, not handsome, but intelligent and innovative, godly and faithful…and someone who just wants to love another and be loved. Sigh.
I just bought the first two books in this series the other day for my Kindle. I cannot wait to read these. The Regency Era is one of my favorite eras to read about. Great review!
