A Reluctant Courtship
A woman without a prospect. A man without a homeland. Can love give them a future?
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. If he’s to keep out of a British prison himself and secure his place in British society, Lord Ashmoor needs a wife beyond reproach—something the vexingly beautiful Honore certainly is not. Yet he may be honor-bound to court her because of an old promise.
For the sake of her heart, Honore determines to prove Ashmoor’s innocence—even if doing so risks her own life.
From the very first sentence, award-winning author Laurie Alice Eakes thrusts you into high drama amid the rocky cliffs of Devonshire, England, and keeps you suspended there until the final page.
"Miss Honore Bainbridge falls into romantic entanglements as easily as falling off a cliff. Only Miss Eakes could begin a novel with such a literal cliff hanger. This is a must read Regency."
