My Recommendation and a Giveaway: A Lady Most Lovely by Jennifer Delamere
What It's About:
Socialite Margaret Vaughn is the wealthiest heiress in London-or so everybody thinks. Saddled with debt left by her father, she agrees to marry a rich man who can save her family's estate. But when her fiancé turns out to be just another poor social climber, Margaret faces financial ruin-and social humiliation. Just when she thinks all is lost, she finds an unlikely angel in Tom Poole . . .
After amassing a fortune in the gold fields of Australia and surviving a harrowing shipwreck, Tom Poole is the toast of London society. Yet despite his newfound fame, he's never forgotten his own humble beginnings. When he learns of Margaret's plight, he offers her financial assistance-but his interest is not strictly business. Taken with her beauty and grace, the rugged adventurer wants nothing more than to win Margaret's heart. But can he convince the proper, refined lady that, despite their social differences, they are a match made in heaven?
Once again Jennifer Delamere delivers a fabulous historical romance with the perfect blend of romance, faith elements and well-developed characters! Margaret is strong and determined, but I love how she softens at the end. And Tom is a wonderful, flawed hero who we champion to win the girl. The motivations and growth of both characters were genuine and interesting. The conflict is great and keeps you reading, especially the romantic tension! :) It was also fun to see some of the same characters from Delamere's first book.
To celebrate the release of A Lady Most Lovely, I'm giving away an e-version of the book to one lucky commenter. All you need to do to enter is leave a comment on this post telling me: What's your favorite thing about the month of October?
