Where to begin…There are so many things I love about this story. From the correspondence between Randolph and Lavinia, to their many encounters, which were so beautifully written. At times, I felt as if I were there, holding my breath during suspenseful scenes and swooning over romantic moments. I even chuckled with some of Lavinia’s occurrences. Lavinia Montgomery was in a carriage accident that killed her parents. She suffered injuries, but can walk again and is ready to dance at her societal debut. This story had unexpected twists and turns which kept me engrossed until the very end.
When I can be immersed in a book for many hours and forget my surroundings, I say the author has done her job – and that’s how I felt while reading this book. I thoroughly enjoy this author’s voice and writing style, and highly recommend her to true romantic readers like myself.
One of my favorite scenes…
About The Author
Anabelle Bryant began reading at age three and never stopped. Her passion for reading soon turned into a passion for writing and an author was born. Happy to grab her suitcase if it ensures a new adventure, Anabelle finds endless inspiration in travel; especially imaginary jaunts into romantic Regency England, a far cry from her home in New Jersey. Instead, her clever characters live out her daydreams because really, who wouldn’t want to dance with a handsome duke or kiss a wicked earl?
Though teaching keeps her grounded, photography, running, and writing counterbalance her wanderlust. Often found with her nose in a book, Anabelle has earned her Master’s Degree and is pursuing her Doctorate Degree in education. She proudly owns her addiction to French fries and stationery supplies, as well as her frightening ineptitude with technology. A firm believer in romance, Anabelle knows sometimes life doesn’t provide a happily ever after, but her novels always do. She enjoys talking with her fans. Visit her website at AnabelleBryant.com.
