Blackmoore: A Proper Romance
By Julianne Donaldson
Publisher: Shadow Mountain
Release Date: September 28, 2013

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.

I am so excited to read this book!!! Edenbrooke: A Proper Romance by Julianne Donaldson was my favorite book last year. Seriously. Best. Book. Ever! This is a book I really want to preorder because I know it’ll be amazing!

5 STARS: I LOVED IT!!!

Marianne Daventry will do anything to escape the boredom of Bath and the amorous attentions of an unwanted suitor. So when an invitation arrives from her twin sister, Cecily, to join her at a sprawling country estate, she jumps at the chance. Thinking she’ll be able to relax and enjoy her beloved English countryside while her sister snags the handsome heir of Edenbrooke, Marianne finds that even the best laid plans can go awry.

From a terrifying run-in with a highwayman to a seemingly harmless flirtation, Marianne finds herself embroiled in an unexpected adventure filled with enough romance and intrigue to keep her mind racing. Will she be able to rein in her traitorous heart, or will a mysterious stranger sweep her off her feet? Fate had something other than a relaxing summer in mind when it sent Marianne to Edenbrooke.

My Thoughts:
Oh my this book was AMAZING!!! I loved it!! This is a book I would recommend to everyone who loves a good romance, a little excitement, mystery, and a lot of laughs.

From the beginning I was attached to Marianne. The poor girl had been shipped off to the city after the death of her mother. Her father had sent her to family in one place and sent her twin sister to another. Separated from her family and the beautiful countryside she felt lost. She left to meet up with her sister at Edenbrooke as soon as the invitation came.

The scenery was breathtaking and made me want to visit the English countryside. Sigh. Maybe one day. I loved the humor that came with some embarrassing moments for Marianne especially in front of handsome men. Just thinking about it makes me want to go re-read this book today.

I’d heard so many good things about Edenbrooke. I don’t know why it took me so long to finally read it! If you want a beautiful, relaxing, romantic read go get this book now! You’ll enjoy it.
