Format: Paperback
here are some novels I have enjoyed reading almost entirely too much. Before the Season Ends, Linore Rose Burkard's first Regency Inspirational Romance was one such title. Captivatingly addictive, true to period language and form, the story of beautiful, young outspoken Ariana Forsythe and the wealthy, stand-offish Phillip Mornay quickly became a fast favourite, and prompted an all-night reading spree. When the sequel The House in Grosvenor Square arrived I was almost afraid to open it for fear that it wouldn't live up to the first book.

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.

Linore has a real understanding of the Regency period. The sequel to 'Before the Season Ends' brings back Ariana and Mr. Mornay along with many of the other characters and several new. You will get to see all the mayhem that leads up to Phillip and Ariana's marriage and it will keep you turning the pages, I promise. If you like Regency you will love this book because Linore Burkard knows her stuff. Check out her website if you want to find out more about the Regency Period. It is great!

Be sure to read Book 1 first (this is Book 2). Very entertaining and well-written,i.e., it held my attention and left me wanting to read more of this author.

(the short version): I loved this book. Go out right now (I did say now, but you may wait until you finish reading this. You are welcome.) and buy this book for the significant female in your life. Mother's Day is coming up, you know . . . and if you have more than one significant female in your life: buy multiple copies because once she's read this book, she will be reluctant to part with it. I'm just sayin'.

(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.

Format: Paperback
The House in Grosvenor Square by Linore Rose Burkard is the second to feature Ariana Forsythe in a Regency Inspirational Romance. Ariana and fiance Phillip Mornay are just days away from their wedding, and she is getting ready to move into his Grosvenor Square manor. But every time she visits the house, something valuable disappears, and soon Ariana herself is disappearing from repeated kidnapping attempts. Phillip must discover who is at the bottom of both mysteries to save their wedding day. Burkard has perfected the art of mistaken identities and misconstrued messages making the plot zip with humor and fun, along with a more serious suspense plot as well. She juggles the romance, faith, humor, and suspense easily; I absolutely couldn't put this book down. I do love how there are certain traps that Burkard does not fall into. While there are plenty of near-misses in meetings, never does Ariana do trademark heroine actions of the type that have readers groaning in disgust and frustration (like leaving the house alone knowing that someone wants to kidnap her) making the book a true joy. I do hope that Burkard isn't finished with the couple's escapades; they are too good to end the series at just two books!
