Thank you for a delightful read, Linore Rose Burkard! TV is boring and reading is my adventure, escape and relief from being old. I love good authors and pray you will write more books. The inspiration part of the story was not overdone, but was so totally believable to the situations and times and lives of these people.
Oh! And praying makes perfect sense to me.
*Spoiler alert if one hasn't read Before the Season Ends* Our heroine, the lovely and compassionate, Miss Ariana Forsythe, has captured the heart of Mr. Phillip Mornay, the wealthiest and most sought after bachelor in town. In Ariana, Phillip finds an unpretentious young lady, as beautiful on the inside as she is on the out, and has fallen in love with her AND her God, quite in spite of himself.
In the two weeks before they are to be joined in holy matrimony, dastardly happenings begin to occur, putting a blight on the couple's newfound happiness. Expensive objects begin to disappear from Mr. Mornay's house, Grosvenor Square, and someone tries to abduct Ariana on her way home one evening. What insidious, sinister force has reared its ugly head against Ariana and her betrothed?...and why? Will they finally make it to the altar or will darkness prevail against them?
I was blessed to be able to read these two books back to back, and what a wonderful journey it was! Ms. Burkard's extensive knowledge of the regency era; the customs, architectural designs, the aristocrat's "lingo", clothing designs, etc., is astounding! With an exciting storyline full of twists and turns, and a beautiful, spiritual thread throughout, this novel is a must read! Very impressive, Linore Burkard!
The constant attempts to kidnap Ariana as some kind of revenge of Philip became old, however. While his wealth and propriety, plus his friendship with Prinny, do give him importance among the ton, Philip still doesn't have vast power other than his abilities to give money to causes and as a stylemaker. Hating him enough to kidnap his bride seems silly. However, the novel was well-written, and I loved the view of Regency England. The pace was slower than the first novel. I still love the romance between Ariana and Philip and was happy to see them begin their married life together. So I gave it 4 stars.
