A Hero for Miss Hatherleigh By Carolyn Miller

A Hero for Miss Hatherleigh 


Carolyn Miller




Can a very proper noble lady find a future with a fossil-hunting man of faith?

As the daughter of Viscount Aynsley, Caroline Hatherleigh knows every rule of society—and she’s always followed them precisely. It’s simply the way things are done in her world. When she visits south Devonshire and encounters a fossil-hunting scientist and his sister, her assumptions about what is right are shaken. She is suddenly confronted by questions she has never considered about the importance of friendship and faith—and her comfortable understanding about how the world works is thrown off balance.

Gideon Kirby loves science, and hunting down proof of past lives is a joy he won’t willingly give up. But his scientific leanings are being challenged by both his personal beliefs and by local smugglers in the Devonshire countryside. And every day his sister’s illness is becoming more desperate and her care grows more demanding. Adding a proper Viscount’s daughter to the mix is a complication Gideon never expected—especially since he has a secret that demands he stays far away from this young woman he’s falling for in order to protect his beloved sister.

When a mysterious stranger visits the village, that secret is set to be exposed, no matter how Gideon fights. Then tragedy strikes in a smugglers cave. And the threat of scandal may lead to broken hearts and passionless propriety. Will the shaky bond these two have managed to build be strong enough to overcome their differences—or will the trust they’ve withheld from each other end up tearing three lives apart?


Caroline Hatherleigh knows her way around in the realm of society, after all she a viscounts daughter, and her actions shows that of someone who has been raised around a wealthy atmosphere. She thinks of no one but herself, she’s rude, doesn’t care how she acts. She reminds me of a big annoying brat! Thinking she needs a husband and not liking the guy she’s been hanging around, her mother sends her to south Devonshire, which is the best move her mom could have made! 

Gideon Kirby is a scientist who loves hunting down fossils and trying to figure out the past. But Gideon’s main thing is taking care of his loving sister who has a chronic illness. 

This is such an amazing story! I love the characters, and how each one develops so well as they play out the parts in the story. I love how Gideon takes such special care of his sister, doing whatever he need to do to take care of her. And then when Ms. Hatherleigh comes into the picture, she has such a sweet friendship with Emma. And her reaction to Gideon was awesome! Carolyn Hatherleigh changes from the brat she was to someone very different. I love the way Ms. Miller so expertly makes the changes in Carolyn’s life, and even showing times of her going back to her old self, but she turns out to be a likable person as she continues to change. I feel this is a very well researched and well written story, and I love how this author weaves the Christian life into the lives of her characters. When I finished reading this book, I had a warm feeling for these characters because of the Christian living so evenly written within the pages.  I love, love Carolyn Miller’s books and this one did not disappoint! I highly recommend this sweet Regency read to those loving this genre!
