A Lady Most Lovely

Jennifer Delemere
Historical Romance
Christian Romance
Book 2 in Love's Grace Series
An Heiress at Heart, A Lady Most Lovely

"Perhaps even now she was thinking it would be better to lose her estate than be forever linked to a shopkeeper-farmer-gold digger-rogue who was trying - and not always successfully - to live as a gentleman."

Margaret Vaughn needs money to save her ancestral home.  After her grandfather broke the entail, allowing her to inherit instead of her vile cousin, it is her responsibility to keep the family home safe, despite her father's debts.  She hopes her marriage of convenience to a rich and title man will help cover up the fact that no one knows her fortune has disappeared.  Until she finds out that her fiancee's wealth is as real as her own.  Now she has no way out.  Or does she?  Tom Poole has recently returned from the gold mines of Australia to visit his sister and his homeland.  He doesn't expect to be attracted to the beautiful, and engaged, Margaret Vaughn.  But when she has a problem he can solve, he may have found a way into her life.  Perhaps a permanent one.  That is, if he can convince her that he's in it for love.

My Opinion: Though this was book two in the series, it was a good stand-alone romance that tickled your interest and kept you turning the pages.  Although a bit slow at times, and making me want to slap the main characters on occasion, the romance was sweet and ended delightfully.  With a good idea behind it, the storyline was good, though it dragged occasionally and I felt it could have had a few extra twists and turns, but that's how it goes.  The Christian slant was a bit more prominent than I remember it being in the last one, getting a bit preachy at times.  Overall, a good book and a fun romp through history.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.

  1. I received a free copy of this book from another blog. Looking forward to reading it. I like books that have money as being part of the conflict.
