The Captivating Lady Charlotte (Regency Brides: A Legacy of Grace, #2) by Carolyn Miller
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.
About The Author
I'm an Inspirational Regency romance author who lives in the beautiful Southern Highlands of New South Wales, Australia with my husband and four children. I love reading (especially Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer), music, films, gardens, art, travel and food. I really enjoy creating worlds where flawed people can grow in faith, hope and love.
Book two of the Regency Brides: A Legacy of Grace, The Captivating Lady Charlotte is just as good as the first book in this series, and kept me page turning to the end. We are brought up to date with cousin Livvie, and again meet the person who will be focused on in the third book Miss DeLacey, and now I can’t wait for that book.
This time it is cousin Charlotte’s turn, and she has her coming out and presentation to the queen, and she sure does turn heads, and not all of the young men are up to the standards that her parents want for her. Then we learn about William Harwell, a duke, and recent widower, but when all is said will he meet up to the standards set by her family, or will the gossip keep coming.
Then there are terrible things happening at the duke’s estate, and it seems someone wants to do him harm, why are these horrible things occurring, and who is doing them.
We again get to see the countryside of old England, 1814 to be exact, and things are quite different and the royalty live a rather luscious life style.
Once you state to peruse this book you will not be able to leave it alone, it is that good.
I received this book through Kregel Publishing Blogger Program, and was not required to give a positive review.
