As the book opens we find Ariana Forsythe amidst the plans for her wedding to Phillip Mornay. Deeply in love and delighted by her betrothed's blossoming newfound faith all should be pure bliss. However, trouble stirs - her beloved is distant, his servants are plotting against her, and there are dastardly knaves plotting her abduction for unknown reasons.
Ariana and Phillip's relationship matures as it goes through trials and temptations. Reading of their deepening attachment and affection for one provided both a warm glow of love throughout the tale, and periods of angst during miscommunications and conflict.
Where Before the Season Ends was spot-on Regency with a distinctive Christian influence, The House in Grosvenor Square strays towards an amalgam of historical romantic suspense. While still set in the Regency period and bearing all of the earmarks of the fashion, slang, and social mores, the novel jauntily heads down a much more modern path of plot development than the ancestors of the genre ever took.Read more ›
(the jubilee version): Miss Ariana Forsythe is soon to be wed to the most eligible man of the ton, Phillip Mornay. But sudden, curious disappearances of his belongings and his beloved puts Mornay on a path of mystery that he must untangle before his wedding date - just a few days away. Ariana must trust her fiance and God to straighten out the twists and turns that have troubled what should have been the most exciting days of her life.
Historical Romance is my favorite genre. I grew up on (the tamer side) of Regency Romance and am well acquainted with this period of time. Not an expert, mind you, just well acquainted. I thought I knew pretty much all there was to know, as far as idiomatic expressions, pronunciations and customs of the day. This "ol' dog" learned some "new tricks" thanks to this book.
Now, for those of you that are not so well acquainted with the Regency period this is your chance to jump in. The water is great. And there is a substantial glossary of terms at the end of the book. Very informative and helpful in getting the reader comfortable with the setting. I usually recommend going through the glossary before reading a book, but for this book, it isn't necessary.Read more ›
