Choosing To Praise
The Captivating Lady Charlotte by Carolyn Miller is a delightful Christian romance. It is the second book in the Regency Brides series and I absolutely loved it. It can be read as a stand-alone but I enjoyed catching up with familiar characters. The book is a blend of Jane Austen meeting Daphne Du Maurier with a fabulous plotline, wonderful characters and compulsive action – including duels, liaisons, love triangles, class snobbery, jealousy, adventures – a perfect mix to capture the reader’s attention and imagination.
The leading characters are unique. Both having their strong traits interwoven with insecurities. Life in 1814 demanded social conformity. The hero and heroine defied conventions, being forward thinkers with hearts for the poor and marginalised. The hero was a forward thinker embracing new ideas in agriculture and road building.
