A Reluctant Courtship
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 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. Though they find themselves drawn to each other, family obligations may conspire to keep them apart forever.
For the sake of her heart, Honore determines to prove Ashmoor's innocence--even if doing so risks her own life.
From the 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.
Review by Blanche Mancuso
This book by Laurie Alice Eakes was a dramatic story about Honore Bainbridge, daughter of Lord Bainbridge. After her father passed away Honore goes back to England to live in Bainbridge house. She wants to clear her father's name as he was accused of murder before he flew to America. Honore meets Lord Ashmoor. However it is not by chance that Honore meets Lord Ashmoor. It seems that Lord Ashmoor has a marriage contract that involves Honore. They fall in love. Honore learns that Lord Ashmoor also has some bad press to his name. Can Honore help clear both her father and Lord Ashmoor's names?
A thrilling climax as all names are cleared and the guilty exposed for who they are and Honore's prayers are all answered.
