And people thought this era was blasé and boring – ha! ~ Daniella, Guilty Pleasures
Two adventurous spirits.
Julia Howard longs for the freedom her inheritance will bring her but with her controlling brother holding the purse strings, she’s going to need a most convenient engagement. An encounter in the woods with a dashing stranger couldn’t be more timely.
Wounded, his life at sea at an end, Captain James Covington isn’t prepared for the dull ache of civilian life. He sees in Julia a fellow adventurous spirit willing to risk all. Could agreeing to her outrageous proposal help him recapture a reason to live as they face the biggest adventure of all marriage?
I have to say that Regency Romance by Harlequin has stepped up to the plate and hit a home run.
This is not your old, 1970′s Regency book. It is fresh and sexy!! The way Georgie Lee has written this, I fell in love with the characters and basically everything from the first page.
The characters aren’t stereotypical and Julia Howard was so spunky and non-Edwardian in what she wanted out of her life. Captain James Covington was a true Alpha male who I fell for from the beginning. These two characters were so exciting and so fun that I couldn’t wait to turn the page. Refreshing and vibrant. Truly, this is what Regency romance should be; this book should be considered the definition of this genre.
There was romance wrapped up in a beautiful historical storyline that never stuttered or wavered but continued to draw me into the Edwardian era.
Georgie Lee, I applaud you for writing such a beautiful love story that needed to be written. These two people were so passionate!!! And people thought this era was blasé and boring – ha!
