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.

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.
~I received a copy of this book from the publisher/author (no monetary gain were exchanged), this is my honest review~
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.
Arletta4 Stars Out Of 5For fans of regency historicalsApril 18, 2018ArlettaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5have read all of Carolyn's books and "Winning Miss Winthrop" is my favourite! Set in Bath, this book tells the story of Catherine and Jonathan. Catherine's father has died and they have to move out of their family home. She becomes caretaker for her complaining mother and must learn to live with less. There are many misunderstandings that influence Catherine and Jonathan's decisions and feelings. The book reiterates that women in that time period without means really had little choice or options.
Carolyn's writing style draws you in. I love books that bring me to tears, keep me up past my bedtime and end on a positive note. This book does it all.

Regency Brides: A Promise of Hope #1
By Carolyn Miller
Catherine Winthrop's world has just been upended - with her father's death, she along with her mother and sister find themselves find themselves in a new role. No longer the daughter of the estate as the lands and title have passed on to a third cousin. But to Catherine's shock the cousin that none knew would be inheriting is the very man who broke her heart years ago. To find herself in this position is most disheartening as he was the only man to pay her any attention that she returned. But years have passed with no word from Jonathan Carlew.
Jonathan doesn't relish his sudden elevation in society. For years rumors about his parentage followed him and most of society shunned him for this mark. The one lady to capture his heart was also the one to break it. Finding himself as the newly named head of the Winthrop family is not a position Jonathan sought and finding himself so close to Catherine and the disdain of the rest of the family is almost more than he can bear. But Jonathan has his father's stubborn pride and it is about to stand him in good stead as he faces his greatest pain.
As Catherine and Jonathan come to terms with their new situations they have to confront the pain that has become part of the lives. But will the grief of the past keep them from healing and a second chance? When a new tragedy befalls them will it give them the chance they both need or will it further drive them apart?
Those who enjoyed Carolyn Miller's previous Regency Bride series will enjoy this new series that begins with this book. Some of the previous series characters make appearances which allows the reader to see how their lives have progressed. Fans of Regency period books will want to pick up this one. The subtle societal expectations that can make or ruin a reputation are on full display when a trip to Bath is undertaken in the hopes of economizing the Winthrop expenses while allowing Catherine and her mother time away from their old life.
I was provided a digital review copy of this book by the publisher Kregel with no expectations of a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.
