"More Than a Stranger is more than a romance – it’s a witty and engaging love story that had me turning pages well into the night, just so I could find out what would happen next. It’s a truly captivating tale of two headstrong friends who become much more to each other than they could have imagined." — Lydia Dare

When Evie Moore was just eleven years old she began correspondence with her brother's friend at Eton. What began as silly little jabs at each other became so much more. In five years, Evie and Benedict Hastings had established a deep friendship through letters. Their friendship ended abruptly when Benedict left for the continent and he left Evie with a broken heart.
Seven years later, Evie is unmarried working with her father in his stables. Evie is simply horse mad and she does not ever want to marry, she has plotted out her life as a spinster plus she was exceedingly hurt by Hastings.
Benedict Hastings is in real trouble and he turns to Richard, Evie's older brother to assist him. He needs a quiet country setting to contemplate some really big decisions that will change is life permanently and he asks Richard if he will open up his family's country estate to him.

Erin Knightley's debut regency novel, MORE THAN A STRANGER is a surprise waiting to be discovered by all. Immediately upon starting this book, I knew that I had found something special.
Knightley has a distinct and unique voice that I instantly noticed and loved. Her writing is natural, seeming to flow without much effort at all. From the start, her writing captured my attention and didn't let go until the very end. In fact, it flowed so well that I didn't feel as if I was reading at all. The heroine, Evelyn aka Evie Moore and the hero, Benedict Hastings have been long time friends. Despite the fact that they are separated as Hastings resides in Eton, Evie and Hastings still keep in contact through letters. These letters introduces the lovely friendship and most importantly the trust they have developed for one another. Though sometimes teasing and snarky, they reflect a blooming long distance relationship that remains strong until one day, Evie stops receiving these letters from Hastings. Naturally, she wonders what happened to Hastings but no word has been heard from him at all.
Later, Evie's older brother, Richard and his best friend, Hastings return home but do not know that Richard's family is there and in particular, Evie. It appears that Hastings wants to keep his identity a secret because when he stumbles upon Evie, he lies to her face, introducing himself as Mr. Benedict instead of Hastings. With Evie's brother's help, Hastings is able to keep his true identity a secret. However, Richard's older younger sister soon finds out. The reason why Hastings wishes to keep his identity a secret is because he fears for Evie's feelings.Read more ›
