The publisher says this series has "...the wit, romance, and social commentary of Jane Austen..." and it really does! If you are a fan of Persuasion you will definitely love this book! I'm sorry that it took me almost a year to read it. I really wish I would have read it sooner since it is soooo good, but that means I have less time to wait till I read the next book, Ransome's Crossing which releases in June!

The heroine in this story is 29-year-old, "on the shelf," spinster, Julia Witherington who believes she lost her chance at love when William Ransome, a young officer in the Royal Navy, did not propose. Twelve years later, William, now a successful naval Captain, returns to Portsmouth much to Julia's surprise. Julia, who longs for her quiet life in the West Indies must find a way to save her inheritance from unscrupulous family members and return to her plantation while dealing with her heart.

Ransome's Honor is not packed with searing kisses or sultry glances, the romance in this book is sweet. We even get a glimpse of what has the potential to be a love triangle between William Ransome's young sister, Charlotte and two gentlemen, one whom is introduced and one who is still very much a mystery! I really grew to like Charlotte almost as much as Julia and can't wait to see what adventures await her in Ransome's Crossing!

Christian fiction fans pick up this book...I don't think you will be disappointed!

*I received my copy from the author's giveaway celebrating the release of the book.*
