Series: none

Kate Worthington knows her heart and she knows she will never marry. Her plan is to travel to India instead—if only to find peace for her restless spirit and to escape the family she abhors. But Kate’s meddlesome mother has other plans. She makes a bargain with Kate: India, yes, but only after Kate has secured—and rejected—three marriage proposals.

Kate journeys to the stately manor of Blackmoore determined to fulfill her end of the bargain and enlists the help of her dearest childhood friend, Henry Delafield. But when it comes to matters of love, bargains are meaningless and plans are changeable. There on the wild lands of Blackmoore, Kate must face the truth that has kept her heart captive. Will the proposal she is determined to reject actually be the one thing that will set her heart free?

Set in Northern England in 1820, Blackmoore is a Regency romance that tells the story of a young woman struggling to learn how to follow her heart. It is Wuthering Heights meets Little Women with a delicious must-read twist.

My Thoughts:
I love clean Regency romance! It is so fun to read books where your heart beats faster just because their hands touch. Ooo lala the tension!

I can’t believe I haven’t reviewed this book I read months ago. I’ve already recommended it to my friends. It was a beautiful romance and young woman’s journey set in a mysteriously beautiful setting. Traveling to England is on my bucket list, probably because of all these Regency romance books I’ve read.

Kate wanted to get away from her embarrassingly inappropriate mother and travel to India. Her mother would only allow her to leave for India if Kate could turn down three wedding proposals. You know you’re in for a treat right there. Proposals are the best. Henry was a true friend to Kate. Their relationship had built up for years to a strong friendship. Each scene with the two of them kept me wanting to read until their next scene together, chemistry!

If you love Regency romance or just romance you’ll love Blackmoore. If you read and loved Julianne Donaldson’s first book Edenbrooke then  you’ll love this read. Enjoy!

  1. Bluerose and Laura- Edenbrooke is so wonderful! It would be an enjoyable relaxing book to read on Christmas break. I loved both books, but if I had to choose a fave it would be Edenbrooke. 🙂
