“My cheeks grew warm at his soft look, and I had to turn away. I shivered in the light breeze, and Philip quickly shrugged out of his coat and wrapped it around my shoulders.”
This week I’m showcasing Julianne Donaldson’s Edenbrooke. If there’s a genre I’m really drawn to, but rarely read from it’s historical romance. I really enjoyed this one and actually just bought her other book Blackmoore, which I intend to pick up soon. I have a soft spot for historical romances (especially those that take place in the early 19th century), so if you have any recommendations, don’t hesitate to share them in the comments. You can read my mini review of this one here. Cover is linked to Goodreads.
“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 Marianne 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.“
