Regency House Party

RHP bannerHere’s a fun House Party you might want to join. A group of fun authors has joined together to create a set of Regency period romances set at the same house party. I just finished reading Tabitha’s Folly in this set by Jen Geigle Johnson, and it was a fun introduction to this vacation (Regency style).

Here’s the blurb for Tabitha’s Folly:

tabLady Tabitha Easton recklessly dodges four over-protective brothers while trying to gain attention from the man who holds her heart. She has many choices of suitors, and with Henry as disinterested as ever, she turns to what is wholly forbidden, an irresistibly handsome footman. While their friendship grows, her trust in him increases while her hurt and doubt in her childhood love and friend pushes her away from all she’s ever known as family.

When Lord Henry Courtenay discovers a new attraction to his childhood friend, his role as one of her chaperones at the house party becomes near impossible. Irrationally defensive about any potential suitors and seeking time alone with the enticing Tabby, maintaining friendship with her brothers proves more difficult than he ever imagined. His task becomes all the more difficult when she refuses to understand his growing attraction and often finds herself in almost compromising situations.

When Tabitha’s choices might lead her to danger, and doubt and distrust are high, Henry must prove himself or lose her forever.

My Review

This cute Regency story made me smile. Sweet innocent Tabitha comes to the house party with her four overly protective brothers and one of as her brother’s clueless best friends, who she has secretly been in love with for years. But he has only seen her as a friend…never more. Maybe she can change that at this house party. With a dashing footman thrown into the mix who seems to intuit her every need, annoying brotherly chaperones, and Henry’s hot and cold actions, Tabitha’s feelings quickly become muddled and conflicted. This was a quick read set in 1800’s England with all the proper Regency rules and rigid structures. The story was a little predictable, but still a fun and enjoyable read with likable characters that I liked sharing the ride with.

The Shipbuilder’s Wife

shipI’m participating in another blog tour this week and am excited to share this new book with you. The Shipbuilder’s Wife by Jennifer Moore was SOOOOO good!!!! I read it in just over a day. It was super hard to put down because the plot was so new and intriguing.

Here’s the blurb:

The day of her parents’ garden party dawns bright as Lydia Prescott eagerly anticipates a marriage proposal from a handsome and wealthy plantation owner. The lovely debutante plans to steal a moment away with her beau, but her plans go terribly awry. Instead of her intended, she is joined by a stranger—the largest man she’s ever laid eyes on. And it is clear Jacob Steele is there for reasons far more sober than the party. With British raids erupting all around them, it is his job to reassure plantation owners of their safety. In reality, however, Jacob is an espionage agent, and the truth is dire: America is on the verge of invasion by the British. Blissfully unaware of the danger surrounding her, Lydia basks in the glow of her recent engagement. But her joy is short-lived—a surprise British attack results in a devastating wound, and her plans for the future are shattered. Lost in her devastation, Lydia could never dream that Jacob, that giant of a man she met so briefly, would prove to be her saving grace. And with a war raging around them, she may be called upon to save him too. Continue reading

My Dearest Enemy

Here’s the latest by Jennifer Moore. I love her historical romances, and this one was set in a unique period of time. Canada. Early 1800’s when England fought against the States (again). I love learning about small pieces of history through fictional stories, and this nibble of history I hadn’t run into before, so I wanted to share. Here’s the synopsis (And don’t you LOVE that cover?):

Blurb

coverStruggling alone on the family farm, Abigail Tidwell knows exactly who to blame for her hardships: the Americans. If it weren’t for their part in the war, her father and brothers would be home rather than fighting abroad. But no amount of antipathy could have prepared her for the shocking sight of a wounded American soldier on her property, a man in dire need of her help. Grudgingly, Abigail tends to the soldier’s injuries and anticipates the satisfaction of turning him over to the authorities once he is healed. But fate has other plans. Captain Emmett Prescott remembers little of the ambush on his men by a group of Shawnee Indians and even less about how he arrived in the unfamiliar barn. Continue reading
