With two months to devise a better plan, Julia's first choice to marry her childhood sweetheart is denied. But when a titled dowager offers to introduce Julia into society, a realm of possibilities opens. However, treachery and deception are as much a part of Victorian society as titles and decorum, and Julia quickly discovers her present is deeply entangled with her mother's mysterious past. Before she knows what's happening, Julia finds herself a pawn in a deadly game between two of the country's most powerful men. With no laws to protect her, she must unravel the secrets on her own. But sometimes truth is elusive and knowledge is deadly.

PMayesRaton, NMAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Historical romance with lots of twists and turnsAugust 9, 2014PMayesRaton, NMAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I just finished reading Born of Persuasion and cannot wait to read the 2nd book! Set in England in 1838, Julia finds herself without parents and at the mercy of an unknown guardian. Her life is not her own yet she struggles to have some control over her fate.
Julia, who professes to be an atheist, discovers that Edward, to whom she was secretly betrothed, has become a vicar. Feeling that marriage to Edward is out of the question, she allows herself to be courted by a very mysterious bachelor, Mr. Macy.
Is the man who appears to be the good guy really the bad guy? What about the man who is made out to be the bad guy? Is he really Julias protector after all? Who knows? The good news is that the book isnt predictable. The bad news is that you still wont know after reading Born of Persuasion because the book ends rather abruptly. The author seems to have plotted to get you to read the rest of the series. That works for me. I will definitely be reading Mark of Distinction.

Gringa93Minneapolis, MN5 Stars Out Of 5Downton Abbey fans rejoice!July 24, 2014Gringa93Minneapolis, MNQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Jane Austin fans as well as Downton fans will love this book. Born of Persuasion takes place in the fascinating era of titles and servants. This book starts a bit slow, but will absorb you in the mystery in a way you can't put the book down. The romance heats up, but there are surprising twists along the road that take you by surprise. I thought this was a fantastic read and look forward to reading again and again.
elinsmomAge: 35-44Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5July 21, 2014elinsmomAge: 35-44Gender: femaleI was a little disappointed in this book. I found the plot a little slow and confusing. I really struggled with keeping track of the characters and what was going on. The story line did not go in the direction I thought it would. I will probably give the next book a try, though.
reliWIAge: 25-34Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5UniqueJuly 3, 2014reliWIAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 2Meets Expectations: 2I honestly don't know how to describe this book. The plot was so twisted, it was impossible to see where it was going. Often, in a story, you have a good clue who is the bad guy and who is the good guy. This book really didn't give you a clue at all and that gives it a good mark. On the other hand, because the plot twisted and turned so much, it was a little harder for me to fully appreciate because it almost didn't make sense. And yet, I am curious to know how it all turns out and what really happened to Julia and so I will read the sequel. I'd recommend it to others with some qualifying statements.
