Catherine Winthrop has cried out to God too many times to count. Years ago, the man who stole her heart rejected her--and she's never recovered. Now tragedy has brought him back into her life. This time it isn't her heart he's taking, it's her home and her family's good name--and she has no one to share her grief.
Jonathan Carlew's life may look enviable from the outside--wealthy, handsome, landed--but the mystery surrounding his birth has shadowed his entire life. Now as he ascends to the barony, fresh challenges await, including a scheming mama who wants him to embrace power, even at the cost of losing love. How can he remain the kind, honorable man he strives to be and still meet the demands of his new society responsibilities?
These two broken hearts must decide whether their painful past and bitter present will be all they can share, or if forgiveness can provide a path to freedom for the future.
Set in the sumptuous salons of Bath, Regency England's royal breeding ground for gossip, Winning Miss Winthrop is the first volume in Carolyn Miller's new series. Fans of the wholesome and richly drawn first series won't want to miss this new set of characters.

Amy5 Stars Out Of 5Persuasion-esque Regency RomanceApril 21, 2018AmyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5With each book she writes, Carolyn Miller just keeps getting better! This first book in the Regency Brides: A Promise of Hope series was such a wonderfully fun read. There were definite shades of Persuasion in it (never a bad thing) but it was also entirely Carolyn's storynot a rip-off of Jane Austen.
I loved getting to know Catherine and Jon. Those two certainly haven't had an easy time of it, and that pattern continues through much of the book. Frankly, there were many times I just want to shake them and say "TALK TO EACH OTHER, you idiots." But I couldn't do that, so I contended myself with reading their story to see how it played out and I so enjoyed the journey! I also love how Carolyn ties her books and series together, which means we get to see beloved characters from previous books at times (like Lavinia!).
I cannot wait to read book #2, Miss Serena's Secret!
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
MJSHNJAge: 35-44Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Another great Regency novel by Carolyn MillerApril 20, 2018MJSHNJAge: 35-44Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Carolyn Miller hits another home run with Winning Miss Winthrop. The book is superbly written, the plot is completely engaging, the characters are so real and lovable, and the steady thread of faith and prayer in the story adds more depth and dimensions to the characters and their lives. Anyone who enjoys a good Regency romance will love this book.
This book has more action in the storyline than her novels in the Regency Brides: A Legacy of Grace series. Still, the author's trademark of revealing and carrying the plot through witty, fun, and clever dialogue amongst the characters and heart-wrenching emotional inner monologue of the two main characters shines brilliantly in this book that starts the new series Regency Brides: A Promise of Hope. And, indeed, the hope that cannot be extinguished propels the main characters through many adversities.
Catherine is a baron's daughter, now penniless and destitute after the death of her father. She is resilient, though, and works hard to get rid of bitterness, selfish ambition, and conceit even in the midst of unbearable trials. She has an admirable spirit and patience and compassion which are quite inspiring. And yet, she harbors heartache and loss that grabbed my heart at every turn. Jonathan is a merchant's stepson who unwittingly inherits the title of barony and its lands as well as the debts of his predecessor. He and Catherine have a history full of misunderstanding, angst, and meddlesome family members. Jonathan is a loyal, faithful, intelligent, studious, and industrious man but does have a temper and a tendency to judge too quickly, As their lives converge and collide, both Catherine and Jonathan must mature in their faith and perspective if they are to find true fulfillment.
I so enjoyed this first installment in Carolyn Miller's novels of hope. I cannot wait for the second book which will feature Catherine's younger sister Serena. And the third book is to be about Jonathan's half-sister Julia, which should be very interesting!

1816, Gloucestershire and Bath, England....
Catherine Winthrop is an enchanting, compassionate and kind, loyally devoted and long-suffering (she has to be with her mother!) godly woman. I was pleasantly surprised by the growth of character and faith she developed, evident in the way she carries herself and deals with those around her...especially her mother. However, she carries a deep wound of the heart that I could "feel" as she tries to put on a smile for those around her. Will she ever find love again that will heal her broken, shattered heart?
Jonathan "Jon" Carlew is an honorable man of faith, integrity and compassionate for all in his care. He suddenly finds himself thrust into the role as head of the Winthrop family as the Baron and takes his responsibilities very seriously and strives to preserve the family's legacy. He does have one problem though, he can't seem to express his love for a certain young woman. She as well, is unable to express hers for the man she loves. Maybe if they would actually talk...without their respective mothers interference...and air past hurts and misunderstandings they could possibly resolve their estrangement.
I enjoyed the descriptions of the masquerade ball and the dancing. It certainly was an "eye-opener" for a couple of the characters and could bring about more problems for a certain person. I was delighted to see Lavinia and Nicholas, from The Elusive Miss Ellison, at different times throughout the book. It is like seeing "old friends". I enjoyed Catherine's Aunt Drusilla and General Whitby and found them to be lovable characters which soon became favorites.
This is a delightful story filled with family drama, some unforeseen surprises, hope, faith...I especially appreciate the inspirational elements woven throughout the story and the importance of faith to the characters, romance, and redemption.

Rachs RamblingsBangor, MEAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Enjoyable Regency NovelApril 18, 2018Rachs RamblingsBangor, MEAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A well written novel that put me in mind of the classics, but with faith overtones included. The characters were quite well done, the plot, characters, and settings very fitting for the time period, and the theme of faith and hope through difficulties Intricately woven in the pages.
The only fault, if it can be one, is that the middle seemed to move slowly before the misunderstandings were able to be cleared. However, during this time and age, it is probably more true in holding to the customs, protocol and propriety of what was considered to be lady like and gentlemanly behavior.
I enjoyed this read...especially Catherine.
I received this book from the author. All opinions are my own.
Remember trials are merely opportunities for faith to grow.
