Verity Hatherleigh has a mind of her own—but her actions do not impress her viscount papa. When she gets into one scrape too many, he sends her off to the wilds of Scotland to rethink her headstrong ways.

Anthony Jardine relished his role as curate, but his new duties as laird of Dungally aren’t always to his liking. Though he thought his new inheritance would be a

Wow! I just finished reading Misleading Miss Verity and I believe it to be my favorite of all of Carolyn Miller's books. Verity is a delight, full of fun. She knows her own mind and is not afraid to face the consequences of her actions. Anthony Jardine is an interesting fellow who certainly grew into his role as Laird of Dungilly. I thought the plot was fast-moving and entertaining. I am sincerely sorry that this is the final book in the Daughters of Aynsley books. I hope that Ms. Miller has a ...more

This has to be Carolyn Miller’s best book to date! I have loved this whole series, but this book is by far my favorite! I absolutely loved Verity and Anthony. They complimented each other so well. I loved that most of this book was set in Scotland. There is so much detail in this book that makes it come to life. This is a book and series that I know I will read again!

I received a complimentary copy from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are

Carolyn Miller draws her 'Regency Brides: Daughters of Aynsley' series to a close with this one, the best of the series, in my opinion. I read Miller's first novel, The Elusive Miss Ellison, and knew at once that I had found a great Regency author. She is quite good at what she does. And this book is no exception.

Verity Hatherleigh has been sent off to Scotland because of her decidedly unladylike ways. She is quite impulsive in a time when ladies are supposed to be demure and obedient. While

I absolutely loved this story, these characters, and the setting! From the first page till the last, I was swept into the regency era and enveloped within the lives of the characters. You may be a bit shocked to find out that this is the very first book from Carolyn Miller I have read. I've purchased her other books, I've just not yet read them (soo many books!).
I can tell you that I will do my best to make time to read her other books because I just can't get enough of her fantastic story

Misleading Miss Verity is the third and final installment in the Daughters of Aynsley series. This can be read as a stand alone but would be good to read the others to get the full enjoyment from it. To me, this is the best one. I enjoyed the humor and the romance. The characters are likeable and endearing. If you like a good recency book then I think you'd enjoy this story.
*I was given a copy of this book by the publisher.This is my honest opinion.

Love love and love this story!! We all go through times in life where we feel like one giant mistake, that we can't do anything right for certain people to love us or even just notice us. But we are never a mistake, no matter what other people may say, think, or make us feel. God loves us no matter what and others should do the same. Love sees us for who we really are, at all times and loves us anyway, faults and all. Everything that we will ever go through will bring those people into our lives ...more

Carolyn Miller has been a favorite author since I first read The Elusive Miss Ellison, part of her Legacy of Grace series. The Regency England setting has endeared me to this author. She captures it perfectly. Her heroes and heroines are interesting and not typical. Verity is no exception.
With her two sisters safely married off, Miss Verity Hatherleigh, being the third daughter, feels out of place. She doesn’t fit the mold of a dutiful daughter, a lady. Some how she feels her parents wanted her

My new favorite by this talented author!!!

Yes, the writing is THAT much better. The banter between characters is more fun. The storylines are more daring and unusual. I find it hard to believe, but yes, Carolyn Miller is perfecting her writing craft and the bar (sorry Carolyn, but not sorry) can only be raised from here!!! :)

I have enjoyed this series very much, but truth be told, I could barely wait for this book.

I could just tell.

Author Carolyn Miller has written another fabulous book in her Regency Brides: Daughters of Aynsley. Misleading Miss Verity is the perfect ending for this charming series. Miller has created strong, interesting, and engaging characters in a wonderful regency era. Readers have seen Verity Hatherleigh through the eyes of her sisters in the previous books of this series, but this story is all her own. Verity Hatherleigh is such a fun character; she is a spunky, truthful, and loving. While her love ...more

WOW! That was my thought as I finished Carolyn Miller’s Misleading Miss Verity the third in the Daughters of Aynsley, Regency Brides series. The cover for Misleading Miss Verity is beautifully made with exquisite colors. There is an amazing castle of Scotland which stayed in my head as I read the story. I found myself carrying the book around with me and just placing it next to me so I could see and enjoy the gorgeous cover.

Misleading Miss Verity is the third book in Carolyn Miller’s REGENCY BRIDES: DAUGHTERS OF AYNSLEY series. It was probably my least favorite of the three, but still enjoyable. This author does a fine job of spinning exciting stories set in England, early 1800s (one of my favorite time periods!)

This novel centers on Verity Hatherleigh, youngest of the three sisters. She has always pushed against the rules and regulations of society, and is definitely not about to happily agree to an

Verity Hatherleigh, the youngest of the three daughters of Lord Aynsley, is at a constant battle of wars with her mother. She’s not the proper lady her parents expect her to be, constantly breaking the rules of etiquette society demands with her outspoken and vibrant personality. She says what she thinks and never worries what others will think… But after a handful of scrapes, her parents send her off to Scotland with her grandmother, to rethink her headstrong ways and calm her constant impulses ...more
I have a difficult time saying goodbye. Whether it’s my favorite aunt leaving after a fun visit or the last twenty-five pages in the final novel of a series, I struggle to let go. Confession time — I’ve had a copy of Misleading Miss Verity sitting on my desk for a while now, but I just couldn’t face saying farewell to a series I have loved and enjoyed SO much.

Verity Hatherleigh is a hoyden who doesn’t believe in God. She was raised by unbelieving parents and thinks of the Bible as a fairy tale. While Verity is intelligent and helpful to others, she is always getting into trouble and not living up to her mother’s expectations.

Anthony Jardine is a former curate who feels called to bring the gospel to those abroad. However, he is forced to return to Scotland and take on a new title after his cousin’s death. Anthony has a soft heart and he truly wants

By Carolyn Miller

Verity Hatherleigh is to have her first season - not that she cares for such attentions - but when her mother abruptly decides to send her away instead she is once again convinced of her parents' utter disappointment with her. And to be sent away to her grandmother's and not to the home of her dearest friend is yet another blow to her spirit. When her grandmother sends her secretly to Scotland in an attempt to prevent
Let me start by saying, this is probably the first of Carolyn Miller’s Regency novels in which she got to set scenes in her home region of New South Wales, Australia. Early scenes in her latest work are set in old Sydney Town, an area full of convicts, released convicts, and other miscreants, and very different to the cosmopolitan city it is now. I got to spend a week in the city some thirty years ago, and my father has just announced he will be returning next year. While trying to follow the ...more

I have read the other two books in Ms. Miller’s Regency Brides: Daughters of Aynsley series, and enjoyed them immensely, but I have to say this is my favorite thus far! I appreciate in all of the author’s books the strong spiritual thread that runs through the stories.
The setting is 1820 in Scotland. This is an era where the wealthy adhere to a very shallow, pretentious societal code of conduct, especially where young women are concerned. Verity is from just such family and much to her mother’s

In February, 2017, I read my first book by Carolyn Miller and in my review of The Elusive Miss Ellison, I said "Fans of the Regency era now have a new author to enjoy and new books to look forward to because this is the first book in a new Regency series by Carolyn Miller." Now, two and one-half years later, I have just finished the ninth book by this author and I enjoyed it even more than the first!

Miss Verity's story is the last book in the Regency Brides: Daughters of Aynsley series and is best read in order, but can also be enjoyed as a standalone.

Miss Verity Hatherleigh is known for her reputation of getting into scrapes and for her straightforward manner. When her parents have had enough of her behavior that they deem unacceptable, she is sent to her grandmother's house to think about her behavior and prepare herself for marriage. When Verity's parents choose a repugnant man for her

Award-winning author Carolyn Miller concludes her inspirational Regency series, featuring the Hatherleigh sisters in this inspirational Regency novel.

In Misleading Miss Verity, Miss Verity Hatherleigh is a headstrong young lady – she is an impulsive, feisty, and independent thinker. While she doesn’t live up to her mother’s expectations, she fights for the rights of others, sometimes getting herself into trouble. After her latest escapade, her parents send her to her grandmother to think about

It did not take but a book or two for Carolyn Miller to earn a permanent spot on my favorites shelves. I have not missed a single one of her novels and I personally believe that each one has surpassed the previous ones.

I enjoyed this final installment in the 'Regency Brides: Daughters of Anysley series by Carolyn Miller. It follows Verity, the youngest and arguably the most precocious of the 3 sisters. Verity often clashes with her mother because of her forthright manner and tendency to defy social convention. She lives up to her name, which the Latin for 'truth'.

Most of the story follows Verity's adventures in Scotland, where so goes to visit a school friend with whom she had previously enjoyed many

You can never go wrong with reading an author Miller story. I think Verity's story is my favorite yet, but I have enjoyed all of them and my visits to regency Europe.

Here we have Verity, the youngest of the Aynsley's daughters and her story I have been most anticipating. Verity is special, as her name means truth she is quite literal speaking. She was a breath of fresh air yet sadly her parents, especially her mother did not understand her or try to. Verity did not fit the mold of proper

What a fitting finale to the Daughters of Aynsley trilogy! Carolyn Miller actually wrote Misleading Miss Verity long before the other two books (It was actually one of her first novels, written at the same time as The Elusive Miss Ellison). It is rich in wit and grace, bringing the Scottish lowlands to life with a heartwarming story.

Verity... wow, I loved her as a main character so much. She pulled me in and made me root for her in a way that her sisters in books 1 and 2 failed to do. Her

Misleading Miss Verity is the story of Verity Hatherleigh, the youngest daughter of Lord Aynsley, and I think it's the best book in the series. Not only did I love Verity—her spunk, her drive for equality, her care for others, her penchant for finding trouble—but I also appreciated that Miller made her vast regency world a little smaller by exiling Verity to Scotland for most of the book! Miller gave us a brand new cast of characters (for the most part), and the fact that most were not titled ...more

It’s not often a book sinks as deeply into my subconscious as Misleading Miss Verity. Miller always provides aesthetically pleasing visuals but that’s not what stood out to me this time. Verity is a character that I regret to say I could sadly identify with on many levels. She’s always known she was a disappointment to her parents because she wasn’t a boy, and thus she was always compared to others and treated as less than. I’ll clarify here my own mother never made me feel this way. But Verity’ ...more

Misleading Miss Verity is the third and final book in the Daughter of Aynsley. You could read this book by itself but why would you when the first 2 books are so enjoyable.

In this book we find out more about Verity. Verity is the youngest Hatherleigh. She seems to exasperate her mother no matter what she does. Verity tries to do what her mom wants to do, but she very much lives up to her name. Verity means truth and she just can't seem to be anything less than truthful. Her mother seems to

Oh my!! This book is so good I couldn’t put it down. The main character Verity is such a delightful person. She is feisty, mischievous and has a heart of gold. How does she get into so many shenanigans I don’t know but it makes for an unforgettable story. After taking so much from Verity her mother ships her to her grandmother. Wonder if her grandmother can handle this strong willed young woman?

I loved reading about Verity’s journey to Scotland and the man she meets. Anthony is a bright star to
