Read from October 21 to 24, 2011 — I own a copy

While my introduction to the creative writing of new-to-me author Laurie Alice Eakes was in the first Midwives novel Lady in the Mist. I knew that I would be excited to read more from her in the future. While I’m uber eager to read the next Midwives novel, Heart's Safe Passage: A Novel, it was a treat to have an interlude with another new series, this one a regency.

Her characters are strong and the romance and intrigue are in perfect tandem. Regency novels are one of the time periods that truly grow on me, and this was well done and obviously researched. Laurie knows here stuff. Lydia is an interested character, but it was truly Christien that pulls me in and kept my hand turning the pages for more.

*Thanks to Revell Books for providing a copy for review*
