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 copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.**
I was a bit disappointed to learn that I was jumping into a series with The Captivating Lady Charlotte. As a rule, I prefer to start at the beginning of series. But, I figured out quickly that while there were some minor spoilers to the first book, this one certainly worked just fine on its own.
I really enjoyed this book. While I found the beginning to be a bit slow, eventually the plot sort of took over and held a few surprises for me. There is a bit of a mystery in these pages and the intrigue surrounding it had me hooked. And within all that, were characters that I really came to care for and some powerful messages on love and truth that just pour from the pages.
Carolyn Miller is a new to me author and I can honestly say that I would certainly pick up another book by her again. In fact, I have plans to eventually read the first book of this series and I will be anxiously awaiting book 2 of it as well.
If you are looking for a new regency author to check out, I can highly recommend Carolyn Miller.
