Well written and heartwarming regency. Melissa’s desire to find a man with a strong religious faith brings an uplifting meaning to the story. The novel unwinds into a delightful romantic ending.
and new, which was a learning experience as I derived their meaning from the context in which the words were used. The descriptive detail used throughout the novel was fascinating and brought vivid images to mind. The details also gave the reader a glimpse into the Regency time period, which I knew little of. One could tell that a lot of research was put into creating this novel. A Match for Melissa is worth your time and worth the read!
Melissa Southwood is the daughter of an ambitious social-climbing father who wants to sell her off in exchange for a title. It’s his fondest dream. Melissa has dreams of her own, triggered even more so by finding a handsome man in a ditch. But before she could get to know him, she’s whisked back to London to be wooed by someone else.
She wants a man who is a believer and she’s not too sure about this one. When Mark, the man she rescued, shows up in town she finds herself drawn to him. Her father’s mind is set. One aristocrat desperate for money is soon pitted against another with a damaging past who has recently come to know God. Which one will win? How can she get her stubborn father to see reason?
Add in Mark’s aunt, a widow with charms of her own, and meddling relatives of Mark bent on acquiring a fortune by foul means, and you have a complicated but sweet romance that will leave you smiling with her happily-ever-after ending.
The great news is this is the first book in a series of three in the Honor’s Point Series, so we can look forward to more sweet, clean, Regencies from this fabulous new author.
Melissa Southwood goes along with her ambitious father’s matchmaking schemes until one event throws all into question.
Amidst balls, carriage rides, dinner parties, and danger, Melissa must navigate an arranged courtship as well as the attentions of another nobleman.
Which aristocratic suitor will win her heart?
I don't read much inspirational romance so the premise of this title was somewhat surprising in the blatant Christian vein.
I had not expected a story based on so much of a religious nature. It was an unexpected surprise.
There is a great deal of suspense along with a suspected murder an attempted murder and an abduction. This is only the background of a story of a young lady who must choose a groom. Her choices, an almost destitute and possibly dissolute young nobleman who needs her money to keep him from certain ruin or the other nobleman who was found by her beaten and thrown in a flooded ditch and left to die.
Who will the winner be in this convoluted story? Will it be the man her father has chosen for her or will her heart lead her to the other man that she found near death in a ditch? Both are from the aristocracy so either way her father will get his wishes.
I gave this book 4.0 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 1.0 of 5.0 flames. This story is more religious and thoughtful than sensual therefore the low sensuality rating. It is a good debut effort, and should only get better with additional books.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book via NetGalley from the publisher to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
