Jo - •.★Reading Is My Bliss★.•
Sophia is a passionate and talented artist. She would love to pursue this as a career but seeing as she lives in the 1800’s and not today’s modern world, her dream may never come to fruition. She knows she needs to have an advantageous marriage to put her mother and sister in a better financial position. This would also mean that she would have no need to work and therefore her dream as an artist would remain just that, a dream.

Lady Cranston, Sophia’s mother, has agreed to a betrothal to Freddy

This has an intriguing storyline, and is entertaining and romantic. Sophia isn't interested in getting married, she wants to earn money by painting portraits, but her mother is insisting that she marry her neighbor, Freddy. Freddy isn't interested in being married at all, he's happy spending his time with his dogs and horses, but his father told him to marry. Bruno is an American who just found out who his family really is. Sophia was out at a favorite thinking spot when Bruno walks up to her. T ...more

A charming escape to another time and country. Lots of rules, many of which are still in place today. Not my usual choice of genre. I won the book and decided to give it a try. Captured my attention and held it throughout. Fun to see how things finally resolved to their happily ever after. Not a fan of intimate details, but they were a minor portion of the story, so easily overlooked.

Featherbrained Lackwit Heroine and Melodramatic Hero’s Past

This book started off with such potential. I like that Americans are starting to slip into some of these Regency romances, and this one was a long-lost first-born son of an earl. He has a younger brother who is now to be cast aside because the current earl is a firm believer in the laws of primogeniture, even though the hero doesn’t want to upset the family apple cart. The hero does not want his younger brother to suffer needlessly and h

Autant j'ai apprécié le précédent livre (the duke's blackmailed bride) autant lire celui-ci fut presque un calvaire surtout pendant les 2/3 de l'intrigue. Cela commence vraiment à bouger vers la fin. Dommage. ...more

This was such an exciting read! Due to her circumstances, Sophia is duty-bound to marry Freddy Beaumont, heir to the fifth Earl of Enderby, in order to save her family. She does not like it one bit. She always dreamed she would marry for love, not duty. When Freddy's half-brother, Bruno Cavanaugh, who it turns out is the Earl's firstborn and the legitimate heir, comes to town Sophia becomes conflicted. She is drawn to Bruno, but her promise is to Freddy. The attraction between Bruno and Sophia i ...more

An exciting story that grabbed me from the first page. Sophie knows she has to marry due to the dire circumstances her father left her, her mother and her sister in after his death. But she really did not want to marry Freddy, the future Earl of Beaumont! She wanted to marry for love! She was an artist and really wanted to make her living that way, if only she could.
When she unexpectedly met Bruno Cavanaugh when she had taken a walk and was standing at the bridge, she had no idea how he would co

This book has a lot of potential, but as it is now it was more annoying than entertaining. Why on earth would someone who knows they can’t even pay her sister’s bill from Switzerland then turn around and agree to an all new wardrobe for said sister? And then immediately another whole wardrobe for her coming out? And how many times must we read about Sophia’s guilty feelings and sense of obligation? The same with Bruno’s issues. Also it hardly felt like his brother would have even had time to mar ...more

The drama at the end was priceless!
This one has a different heroine she is an artist who ends up engaged to a man she does not love. Then what does fate do but blows in the man of her dreams. Now the question is what is she going to do? If you are looking for romance this is the one to pick up. This tale has excellent characters, is well-written and a pure pleasure to read. The author stays in this time setting with details that made the scenes jump of the page it was so real and authentic. This

I'm not normally a romance reader but thought I would give this a go.

This is the second in the series Northbridge Brides. I don't think it's necessary to have read the first book of the series to enjoy this.

Set during the regency period, the protagonist, Sophia Cranston is considering a marriage of duty to Freddie Beaumont to support her family through a financial crisis when she meets Bruno Cavanaugh, who it turns out is the legitimate heir to the Beaumont family fortune.

The writing style is pe

The Beaumont Betrothal is the second book in the Northbridge Bride Series.

I really enjoyed this Regency romance and found the characters to be well developed, likable, and intelligent. The storyline is well written and has great details of the era. Will Sophia choose Freddy, Bruno, or her portrait work?

This is the first book I have read by this author and I look forward to reading more.

I have always loved to read and write.

While I'm currently focussing on Regency and Contemporary Romance, I've also published children's literature, poetry and short stories, and I once owned and published a niche magazine.

I live in an area known for its unique geothermal landscape, beautiful forests and jewel-like lakes. I love the sea and the place of my heart is a tiny seaside village that's sca
