    A handsome lord and a spunky lady collide

    I just love spunky heroines and Laurie Alice Eakes has given us just such a character in Reluctant Courtship. Honore Bainbridge trusted too much and made some bad choices. She did it with a clean heart, but now she is being punished by society and her family. We see her angst, and her attempts to do her best despite other's opinions.

    This book also touched something deeper in me. The difference between right and wrong is not determined by our past experience, though we tend to view circumstances through those experiences. Both Honore and Lord Ashmoor have to look past their past and see the future with new eyes.

    ***I received this book from the author/publisher for the purpose of review. The above is my honest opinion.***

    Laurie Alice Eakes in her new book, "A Reluctant Courtship" Book Three in The Daughters Of Bainbridge House series published by Revell brings us into the life of Honore Bainbridge in 1813.

    From the back cover: A woman without a prospect. A man without a homeland. Can love give them a future?

    Honore Bainbridge has been courted by two men, one of whom turned out to be a traitor, the other a murderer. Banished to her family's country estate, where she will hopefully stay out of trouble, she finally meets the man she is sure is exactly right for her: Lord Ashmoor. Tall, dark, and handsome-what more could a girl ask for?

    But he too is under suspicion because of his American upbringing and accusations that he has helped French prisoners escape from Dartmoor Prison. If he's to keep out of a British prison himself and secure his place in British society, Lord Ashmoor needs a wife beyond reproach-something the vexingly beautiful Honore certainly is not. Though they find themselves drawn to each other, family obligations may conspire to keep them apart forever.

    For the sake of her heart, Honore determines to prove Ashmoor's innocence-even if doing so risks her own life.

    From the first sentence, award-winning author Laurie Alice Eakes thrusts you into high drama amid the rocky cliffs of Devonshire, England, and keeps you suspended there until the final page.

    "A Reluctant Courtship" is a wonderful romance filled with mystery, intrigue, and scandal. It begins with Honore falling off a cliff and a very exciting rescue and the story builds from there. This is a page-turner that will keep you guessing right until the end. These pages are filled with wonderful characters that live and breathe. "A Reluctant Courtship" is full of reputation, finding yourself, finding your place in the world and romance. This is an interesting story filled with lots of excitement and romance as well as history. I liked it a lot and am sorry to see this series end.

    Honore's judgment of men is dismal. Her reputation is so bad that her brother banished her to the country.

    Meric is a gentleman fighting to better his reputation. His father, branded a murderer, escaped to America. On Meric's arrival to claim his family's land and title he's tossed into prison for three months.

    Honore's father helped him obtain his release and claim his title. He also attempted to arrange a marriage between him and Honore, but after her father's death, Meric chose not to marry her. He needs someone who will help elevate him rather than drag him down even further with her reputation.

    These two. although unsuited, seem to be constantly drawn to each other. What a mess this causes. Can they even stay alive through countless "accidents" long enough to let love triumph?

    Once again Ms Eakes brings us a story about The Daughters of Bainbridge House. They have all been good reads. I regret that there are no more daughters.

    Faith and Family Reviews received the following product in exchange for writing a review. While we consider it a privilege to receive products to review, our reviews are our honest opinion and thoughts of the product.

    A Reluctant Courtship by Laurie Alice Eakes is a historical romance with a mystery twist.

    I actually thought of Downton Abbey a lot (which I thoroughly enjoy, by the way!) as I read this book. English propriety. Social Standing. Prim and proper decorum_well_to a point because we all know scandals rock the English just as much as the next.

    I loved Honore's (the main female character) faithful companion who showed her love and devotion amidst Honore's ostracized state. I felt bad for Honore and the judgement placed on her because of some poor choices in past suitors and the scandal they brought into her life. I had a love-hate relationship with the reluctant suitor, Ashmoor. I love the honor and devotion he displayed for his family but hated the reasons for his reluctance to court Honore. Whatever happened to believing the best in people first?

    The mystery case really did not surprise me as I had guessed which character at one point in my reading.

    As love would have it's way, love did triumph at last, which is no surprise in this type of book. However, I enjoyed the humor, the scandal and journey of Honore Bainbridge and her suitor Lord Ashmoor and I'd probably even read this book again.
