Ellise Weaver weaves a very intriguing story with a gripping romantic tension between her characters. I had a difficult time putting this book down and could wait for Lord Creighton and Carly to finally both trust in each other. There were underlying themes that made the story captivating, such as letting go and not fearing love, mysterious occurrences happening at the manor that weren’t resolved, and the importance children in need of unconditional love from their parent. Ellise paints a vivid picture of the historical setting and of the people of the times. I felt I deeply knew the characters by the way Ellise revealed so many of their thoughts and feelings. I rate this highly and have already purchased the second of Ellise's books in her series. I look forward to reading more very soon!
I loved this book. I LOVED THIS BOOK! It was by far the sweetest book I have ever read in a historical romance. Carly Blakemore a sheltered vicar's daughter must take a post as a governess after her parents pass away. She accepts a post and travels to Huntington Manor to teach the children of Lord Creighton Huntington, the Earl of Dunfordshire. Lord Huntington is a brooding angry man who almost consumes Carly with his forceful personality. Carly is the sweetest, almost perfect woman to ever walk the earth. I thought I would hate this book because of how sweet Carly was but I fell in love with her too. She loves the Lord and this book is full of her spirituality. This story is full of passion, suspense, and most of all a lot of LOVE! I don't know why I loved this book so much but I did. It is a serial novel so the story did not end. You have to read the other two novels for the complete tale. I actually liked this method because I really did not want this story to end. So I was very glad to get all three volumes at one time to keep on reading. This story tugged my romantic soul and brought out emotions without a single bit of sex. Clean story, fanciful fairy tale and just plain SWEET!!
I opened this book today and a message appeared on my Kindle informing me that I had already read to location xxx, so I fast forward to the end. I did not recognize the end so I went back to the beginning. To my dismay, I quickly learned that I had read the book once before... but regardless, I was having so much fun that I continued to read. I enjoyed it during the second reading equal to the first time. Thank you for such a fine book!
I chose 5 stars because I really love this book and i hope the rest are as good, and I think they will be. You can really feel the emotions that are explained in this book and when I read I feel, see and smell everything as it is explained. I can't wait to get through the other books. Thank you Ellise C. Weaver for writing such great books. God bless and don't stop writing.
It was back and forth on the feeling that each was experiencing, it was a love hate relation. I wanted to have the kids bond with their father, and I thought there romance would finish in the first book, looking forward to the next book.
Believe me when I say I am an avid reader and I know a great book when I read one and this is defiantly among those great finds!! What a wonderfully written and clean love story full of adventure, love, suspense, mystery and everything in between, which is why I'm hooked and can't wait for the rest of your books!! I am always looking out for new great authors and you are defiantly my new favorite!!
This is one of those books that keeps you up wanting to finish it. You will not be completely satisfied with just Part 1 the story is far to deep and wonderful a story to be told too quickly. The characters are well developed and they really make you think about how people are. You will love Carly and want only what is best for her. Enjoy the reading.
I went ahead and got Part 2 and enjoyed it just as much as Part 1, I am looking forward to Part 3 and hope to read more from this author.
