Book Review Time! I am clearly on a historical/regency romance kick guys!
A Regrettable Proposal by Jennie Goutet:
Orphaned at a young age, Eleanor wants nothing more than to settle in a home of her own. Stratford, having met once with betrayal, desires a woman who will be true. When a complicated inheritance forces them together, they little expect this to be the answer to their innermost desires.
I loved the way this book started out with Lord Stratford totally putting his foot in his mouth . I like how his and Eleanor’s relationship slowly built throughout the book, it made it believable. The treason side story was a fun addition too. Overall a great mix of characters and plotlines to make a fun regency novel! I’d definitely recommend!
A Foolish Heart by Martha Keyes:
Mercy Marcotte doesn't deserve a second chance at love. At least, that's what she's believed since jilting Solomon Kennett, the man she loved, when his fortunes took a turn for the worse. But Solomon is back from the West Indies, rich, aloof, and about to offer for Mercy's best friend.
This was a fun remake of a midsummers night dream. Love the way the main characters get themselves into a love pickle by their stubbornness. I think the side characters, especially Viola, are my favorite though. Their ridiculousness make the story so fun. A great, regency novel!
