Endorsements

"Displaying a flair for comedy and witty dialog, Miller is clearly an author to watch. Her debut Regency rockets off the page with clever, snappy repartee, creating an exciting and fast-paced read. Fans of Georgette Heyer and Julie Klassen will love this romance."—LIBRARY JOURNAL, starred review

"Jane Austen left this world having written only six full works, but the world, two hundred years on, loved every word she wrote. . . . So what to do when you've read all of Jane's work over and over, and wish she'd written more? Read Carolyn Miller."—MERRY BELL, reviewer

"An engaging, page-turning read worthy of a Regency reader's time. . . . The Captivating Lady Charlotte has complex characters, a sweet, slow-building romance, and twists and turns."—RT Book Reviews

"With compelling characters and an engaging story, encapsulated by the romantic era of Regency England, Carolyn Miller's writing style is reminiscent of Jane Austen, with a modern sense of wit and spunk."—Amber Stockton, author of the best-selling Liberty's Promise

"This romantic story is reminiscent of Jane Austen: finding love despite the societal norms of the day while adding the spiritual elements of extending God's grace and forgiveness."—Christian Market

"The Elusive Miss Ellison will delight the hearts of Regency romance lovers with its poetic narrative, witty verbal swordplay, strict social constructs, and intriguing touch of mystery. Carolyn Miller is a bright new voice in the Regency genre."—Louise M. Gouge, award-winning author

Publisher's Description

Loss, Longing, and New Love... 

 

Tainted by scandal, forced to remove to Brighton from London, the Honorable Miss Clara DeLancey is a shadow of her former society self. A chance encounter sees a friendship slowly form with the sisters of an injured Naval captain, whose faith and blunt, high spirits are everything her mother despises. 

Captain Benjamin Kemsley is not looking for a wife, especially not the penniless daughter of a Viscount, but the mysteries surrounding her appeal to his sense of fair play. But how can he dare to dream the impossible, when all his attention should be toward helping those he'd failed to protect?

Pushed into the highest echelons of Society, they must decide if maintaining family honor is more important than their hopes, while seeking to right the wrongs of the past, through the legacy of Grace.

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that all romance novels since Jane Austen are mere copies.

    Well, not really. As we know, we are all unique, so our journeys to love are also unique. But many romance novels do offer a conscious or subconscious nod to Austens work, and The Dishonourable Miss DeLancey is no exception.

    At five-and-twenty, Miss DeLancey is close to being on the shelf. Her marital prospects are not helped by a mama who combines Mrs Bennetts silliness with Lady Catherines snobbery, a brother who has gambled away her dowry, and a father who reminded me of Mr Bennett: intelligent and personable, but influenced by his wife. There are also echoes of Persuasion in the decorated sea captain who was rejected in love when a lowly lieutenant.

    Carolyn Miller takes these well-known tropes and gives them new life in The Dishonourable Miss DeLancey, the final book in her Legacy of Grace seriesand the best (well, in my view).

    Miss DeLancey had the misfortune to fall for someone who didnt return her regard, and was then humiliated for it. It didnt help that her brother gambled away her dowry, making it difficult for her to find another suitor. (Yes, there were several times when I thought Richard DeLancey needed to take a long walk off a short pier.)

    Ben Kemsley has his own problems. Hes spent most of his prize money caring for the families of the men he captained, especially those who didnt make it back to England. The Prince Regent has promised him a reward, but Prinny is famously self-centred and how exactly does one ask the Prince of Wales for a promised fortune?

    My favourite aspect of Clara DeLanceys story was the focus on her spiritual journey.

    In fact, that was the major focus of the first half of the novel. Claras turning point comes when she realises there is more to Christianity than church. She sees the need to change from the dissatisfied person she had beenand the need to put that change in Gods hands. Fortunately, she has her new friends to guide her new friends with a handsome brother.

    I also enjoyed the references to the marine chronometer. I read Longtitude by Dava Sobel many years ago. She explained that weve been able to calculate latitude through the position of the stars and sun, calculating longtitude accurately meant having an accurate clockand one that could remain accurate throughout a long ocean voyage.

    I love this kind of mix of fact and fiction, because it was the lack of such a clock caused the shipwreck that made Captain Ben Kemsley a minor Regency celebrity. There were also several scenes set in and around the famed Brighton Pavillion, redecorated by the Prince Regent at great expense and with dubious taste, and I enjoyed this as well.

    Overall, an excellent Christian Regency romance with element of suspense. Recommended!

    Thanks to Kregel Publications for sending me a free paperback to review.

    Review The best one yet! A delightful read.

    I would not have picked Miss Clara DeLancey for a whole book, but Carolyn Miller has chosen well. We get a look at a seemingly spoiled, jilted and oh so wronged young lady. But the author makes us look deeper at the lost soul of Miss Clara.

    She populates this novel with strong characters in Ben Helmsley, a former Sea captain and his sisters: Mattie, a vicars wife and Tessa who has just come out into society.

    The story has its tense moments and evil characters ...more

    We last met Clara in The Captivating Lady Charlotte, and she wasn't exactly the most likable character at that time. But I'm so glad that Carolyn decided to give us Clara's story, because she's actually a lovely character.

    Clara hasn't had it easy... she thought she would marry a man she loved, and then he married another. As if her embarrassment wasn't enough, then her brother further ruined her chances at marriage to anyone.

    (Formerly Captain) Benjamin is a national hero who's lost his profession and is trying to figure out where he fits into life on land.

    I really enjoyed getting to know these two and watching them grow as their stories progressed and they fought for the lives they want, rather than the lives that are expected of them.

    This may have been my favorite book yet in this series. I can't wait to read #4!

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

    This is not a book I could rush through. It was slow reading but worth it. I felt that I would have missed so much. I liked to vulnerability displayed by the characters. Reading this book makes you appreciate the time we are living in right now. It is not perfect but you are allowed more rights than these characters. Ms. Miller did a great job with the conclusion of this series.

    One of my favorite line in the book can be found on Page 157.

    "Want of character was like scurvy, an insidious disease that rotted a man's body as sure as a lack of principles could destroy an otherwise charming man. "

    I received this book as part of the author's launch team. The opinions expressed are entirely my own.

    I have enjoyed and savored each page of The Dishonorable Miss DeLancy by Carolyn Miller. The amazing descriptions of the Prince Regents Pavilion in Brighton, the period clothing, and sea bathing transported me to 1815. I am an avid reader of Regency fiction and feel Ms. Miller is becoming one of the best authors of this time period. Her descriptions and her knowledge of the time period make this an enjoyable read.

    Ms. Miller has an amazing way of weaving someone's journey with God into her stories. I felt like I was walking with the titular character Clara as she learned of her value in God's sight. I was encouraged in my own faith. I started the book unsure if I could like Clara DeLancey and ended it feeling like we had much in common.

    This is the final installment of a three part series. I recommend this book and the first two in the series. Now I must anxiously await for Ms. Miller's new series to come out in 2018. Wish me luck!

    I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
