Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house during the last week.
In my mailbox this week, was the great new historical romance, from British author Grace Elliot.
It would be about a year ago that I was first in contact with Grace, when she contacted me to request that I read her first published historical romance ‘A Dead Man’s Debt’ and give my thoughts about it.
I was surprised and pleased that Grace remembered me, when it came time to gather some thoughts and reviews about this, her new Georgian romance:
Greed, prejudice and a stolen identity.
In the four weeks since her guardian’s death, Eulogy Foster has lost everything. She travels to London seeking the help of Lord Lucien Devlin, the estranged brother who doesn’t know she exists. But Lord Devlin turns her away and alone on the streets, Eulogy is attacked, robbed and thrown onto the mercy of a passing stranger.
Jack Huntley – bitter, cynical and betrayed in love -believes women are devious, scheming creatures and not to be trusted. So when one night he saves a naive young woman from rape, little does he suspect how life is about to change. Despite his growing attraction to Miss Foster, Jack has a problem: Eulogy Foster has a secret and he can’t trust her.
As Eulogy learns the haunting story of her mother’s past, she knows she will only marry for true love. Deeply drawn to Jack Huntley, she needs him to confess his love before she shares the secret of her birth. Caught in a deadlock, with neither able to confess their true feelings, events take a sinister turn as it becomes clear someone wants Eulogy Foster dead and will stop at nothing to achieve it.
This book was a review copy, sent to me by the author, Grace Elliot and as such, was free of charge.
This will in no way influence any comments I may express about the book, in any blog article I post. Any thoughts or comments will be my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.
