Blackmoore: A Proper Romance by Julianne Donaldson


Book Description:  At eighteen, Kate Worthington knows she should be getting serious about marriage, but her restless heart won’t let her settle down. To escape her mother’s meddlesome influence, she dreams of traveling with her spinster aunt to exotic India. But when the opportunity arises, Kate finds herself making a bargain with her mother: she will be allowed to go only if she spends a season at the family’s wealthy estate, Blackmoore, where she must secure—and reject—three marriage proposals.
Enlisting the help of her dearest childhood friend, Henry Delafield, Kate sets out to collect her proposals so she can be on her way. But Henry’s decision to help threatens to destroy both of their dreams in ways they could never imagine.

A light regency romance that reads quickly.  I enjoyed it-- a puff pastry, mostly air, but sweet.

  1. Pretty cover. That sounds like a fun, cozy read.

  2. I agree that it has a nice cover. I always look at the cover, even when choosing ebooks! The novel was a sweet little romance.
