I recently read The Captivating Lady Charlotte. Unknowing that I would receive a complimentary copy of the next book in the series, I moved on to another book, another author. Upon receiving the book summarized below, I regretted having a story in between, as I was temporarily confused. (My own fault.) Fortunately, the author provides a family tree in the book, so I was able to reference that when a familiar character showed up in this new story.
I have to admit, I did not like the main female character in this book. I had a preconceived opinion of her, based on the opinions of characters from the previous book. Yet, I kept reading, only to ‘hear her side of the story’.
I honestly can’t say which book I enjoyed more because they were both beautifully written. I had several favorite characters in this book. I enjoyed seeing a few of the characters become new as they discovered a relationship with our Savior. Not only that, the scary moments got my attention. I begged the author not to allow harm to the characters I had grown to love.
This series is titled Regency Brides: A Legacy of Grace. It is timely as I have been discovering just how much grace has for me, even when I don’t feel deserving. (Yet, that’s the definition, isn’t it?!?)
The Dishonorable Miss DeLancey
About the Book:
Will a damaged reputation and desire for society's approval thwart the legacy of grace? Tainted by scandal and forced to leave London for the quieter Brighton countryside, the Honorable Miss Clara DeLancey is a shadow of her former society self. She's lost the man she loved to another and, in a culture that has no patience for self-pity, is struggling with depression. A chance encounter brings her a healing friendship with the sisters of an injured naval captain. But Clara's society mama is appalled at the new company she's keeping. Captain Benjamin Kemsley is not looking for a wife. But his gallant spirit won't let him ignore the penniless viscount's daughter--not when she so obviously needs assistance to keep moving forward from day to day. Can he protect his heart and still keep her safe? When they're pushed into the highest echelons of society at the Prince Regent's Brighton Pavilion, this mismatched couple must decide if family honor is more important than their hopes. Can they right the wrongs of the past and find future happiness together--without finances, family support, or royal favor? The Dishonorable Miss DeLancey is full of the captivating, flawed characters, fascinating historical details, and masterful writing that Carolyn Miller's fans have come to know in The Elusive Miss Ellison and The Captivating Lady Charlotte. If you love Lori Wick, Georgette Heyer, and other clean, wholesome Regency romance, you'll love this third book in the Regency Brides: A Legacy of Grace series.
