Edward and Amelia - Blog Tour and Giveaway
The last thing Amelia Kennington wants is to participate in the London Season. But the daughter of a duke is not afforded such opinions. She must put forth a subdued facade, but beneath it is a well-hidden fire that surfaces only when provoked—such as when an overly familiar gentleman startles her and she falls into the Serpentine. Edward Drayton, the Earl of Norwich, has gained a reputation as Society’s most decorated rake. And while there are benefits to such a reputation, it no longer gives him the satisfaction it once did. This Season, he plans to find a wife—except she seems to find him instead. And she is nothing like he expected. Scandal is inevitable following Edward and Amelia’s ill-conceived meeting, forcing them to marry. Amelia’s disdain for this man she hardly knows is more than clear, and Edward’s pride is wounded before their marriage has even truly begun. Yet, against all odds, the two slowly let their guard down, discovering the truth of who they married. But when Society gossip, a sister’s jealousy, and long-held secrets threaten their budding relationship, the unlikely couple must determine if their unconventional love is strong enough to withstand the opposition they face.
Edward and Amelia was just magic. This is just the kind of Regency Romance I love. When things are forced so as not to cause a scandal, these two are out to get to know each other. Amelia is able to get away from her horrid sister, kind of, but Edward's reputation keeps threatening to get in the way.
This is one of my favorite tropes, but what made it even better were these excellent characters. There were times I thought they were too nice given their opposition, but it worked out better than I would have handled it.
I am loving this world and these stories. It was nice to see characters from Karen Thornell's previous offering.
This is a delightful read and I could not put it down. It was the perfect escape.
I received an early copy through the publisher and NetGalley and this is my honest review.
