The Audacious Miss Eliza by Laura Rollins
(Daughters of Courage #1)
Regency Romance, Clean Romance
As it turns out, a London Season is the worst place to find love.
Eliza Mulgrave never expected to make her bows to society. Yet here she is, dancing at Almacks and riding through Hyde Park. It would be perfectly delightful if it weren’t for the whispers and scornful glances. She certainly never sought to quit her place in society as a tradesman’s daughter. At least then she had known who she was and how to act; now, she’s completely lost.
Adam Lambert has been raised to be a viscount and though the time has come sooner than expected he is confident stepping into this new life. Until he meets his Father’s best kept secret—a little girl. And now she’s Adam’s responsibility. Surely someone ought to have told him about her before now.
After stumbling through an initial meeting, Adam and Eliza both find in the other what they most need this Season—a sincere friend. But society is not often willing to grant two people room to learn for themselves who to be, or who to love.
What I thought
I received a copy of this book from the Author, for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
There has not been a book that this author has written that I have not enjoyed. I am not biased I just really love her writing and I am thankful to be on her street team.
This is the first book in the Daughters of Courage series. This series will have four books in it and I can not wait for them to come out. These books are Clean Regency Romance, which means that there is no smut. I prefer these romance books so these are always a huge win for me. These books can be read as stand-alone novels.
In this story, we follow the Mulgrave family who lives comfortably in the country. They are not a family in the ton, however, due to their father saving Lady Blackmore from bandits and being knighted for it, they are not thrown into society to find husbands befitting their new station. The issue is that they were not raised to “perform” on the marriage mart and have only a short time to learn how to weave in and out of it. Eliza has a hard time with all of it, however, she is able to make some wonderful friends along the way.
I adored Adam Lambert in this story he was such a good friend to the Mulgraves and he preferred that Eliza did not act like all of the ladies of the ton. He supported that she be herself and when she took up for someone, which angered one of the mamas, he liked her the more for it.
I loved the interactions between Eliza and Adam they are truly kind souls and are perfect for each other. I enjoyed this book so much that I found it hard to put down. I encourage anyone who enjoys Clean Romances to pick this one up.
