A Reluctant Courtship Review!!!

A Reluctant Courtship by Laurie Alice Eakes

Book Description:
Honore Bainbridge has been courted by two men, one of whom turned out to be a traitor, the other a murderer. Banished to her family's country estate, where she will hopefully stay out of trouble, she finally meets the man she is sure is exactly right for her: Lord Ashmoor. Tall, dark, and handsome--what more could a girl ask for? But he too is under suspicion because of his American upbringing and accusations that he has helped French and American prisoners escape from Dartmoor Prison. For his part, Lord Ashmoor needs a wife beyond reproach, which Honore certainly is not. Amid a political climate that is far from friendly, Honore determines to help Ashmoor prove his innocence--if she can do so and stay alive.

From the rocky cliffs of Devonshire, England, comes the exciting conclusion to the lush Daughters of Bainbridge House series. Award-winning author Laurie Alice Eakes thrusts her readers into high drama from the very first sentence and keeps them on their toes until the final page.

My Opinion:
Laurie knows how to start a book!  From the very first sentence she grabs you and won't let go.  Filled with interesting characters that come together beautifully, and just enough humor to make scenes light.  She comes up with the most unique and lovely names for her characters and I absolutely love Honore's strength and intelligence.  And the mysteries within the story keeps you intrigued throughout.  Laurie's writing is VERY expressive!!!  Filled with thrilling adventure, great intrigue, and exciting danger scenes!!!  A truly beautiful regency with lots of action!  Some chapters keep you at the edge of your seat and not only does Laurie know how to start a book she knows how to end a chapter also!!!  With shocking endings that keep you reading on and on.  The pace is fast which proved (for me at least) to get a little tangled up and confusing at times but overall I absolutely LOVE the quick pace from scene to scene!  This has made it to My Favorite Books List!  It holds things that I never expected from reading book description, and completely shocked me with revealing certain mysterious goings on! :)  A Must read for those that are looking for a wonderful, exciting adventure mixed with excellent romance!  After reading this one I want to read the first in the series all the more and, I suspect,just about anything else Laurie writes!
