A Reluctant Courtship by Laurie Alice Eakes From Revell

 A Reluctant Courtship

 by Laurie Alice Eakes


A woman without a prospect. A man without a homeland. Can love give them a future?

9781441243089Honore 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.

My Thoughts On This Book

Honore Bainbridge just hasn’t made good choices when it comes to men, since one was a murderer and traitor, and now this third one isn’t what Honore thought he was. Thus tainting her family’s name. Lord Ashmoor is looking for a respectable wife but he is not sure he wants that wife to be Honore Bainbridge. But Lord Ashmoor has his own family background he has to worry about too!  I felt bad for Honore as she strives to find a man who truly loves her for who she is, and one who doesn’t have a suspected past. Honore’s character was interesting and captivating and caught my attention from the beginning of the book. And I didn’t put this book down very many times because I wanted to follow Honore and see what the next step life had for her.

I really enjoyed the history throughout this book on Great Britain during the war. I didn’t know a lot about this time in history, so it was very interesting to have a glimpse of the life of those living then. There is a lot going on in this book, so you will be captivated by the story and the setting while you read A Reluctant Courtship. I encourage you to purchase your copy asap for a wonderful read! And since this is the last book in The Daughters of Bainbridge House trilogy, why not pick up the first two books in this series too! You will be blessed as you read these three books from Laurie Eakes.
