Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for The Best Intentions by Sarah M. Eden, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: The Best Intentions
Series: The Huntresses #1
Author: Sarah M. Eden
Publisher: Covenant Communications
Release Date: November 21, 2022
Genre: Clean & Wholesome Romance/Historical/Regency
In the eyes of London Society, Gillian Phelps is suitable enough. Though the ton whispers about her change of residence, any speculation remains just that: ballroom gossip. No one—not even the other Huntresses, the group of ladies she calls her dearest friends—knows that she is harboring a devastating family secret. Gillian has become adept at hiding the reality of her circumstances, but the close quarters of a house party will test her ability to conceal the crushing truth. And with so many people to deceive, the late arrival of another guest is a most unwelcome surprise.
Despite his standing as a gentleman of the ton, in truth, Scott Sarvol possesses little more than two debt-riddled estates. When an opportunity arises to survey one of his properties, he travels north, only to find himself an unwitting guest at Artemis Jonquil’s house party. He is warmly welcomed by all—except the aloof Miss Gillian Phelps. But when Scott proves himself unexpectedly helpful in a crisis, his acquaintance with Gillian shifts from wariness to something warmer.
As both her charade and her feelings for Scott deepen, Gillian realizes that the truth could spell not only a devastating fall from Society but also a shattered heart.

EXCERPT FROM THE BEST INTENTIONS
She didn’t dislike the social whirl. She simply needed the balance of time in the country
surrounded by nature after months in Town among the ton. This year, however, she was leaving
Durham—after not nearly enough time there— to attend a house party. She had never been a
guest at a house party before, though she’d heard many tales of them, both from those she knew
in Society and from Mrs. Brownlow, her benefactress and the mistress of Houghton Manor.
Gillian fluctuated between being disappointed at leaving the peace and quiet of Houghton Manor
and worried that she would make an utter cake of herself at her very first house party.
She considered herself intelligent and clever. Society hadn’t declared her a complete
disaster, though that was owed more to the tutelage and support of her friends than to any social
ability on her part. She belonged to a group of friends known throughout Society as the
Huntresses, their fearless leader being Artemis Jonquil, whose ancient namesake was the goddess
of the hunt and leader of her own band of huntresses. The seven members of Artemis’s band
were the very closest of friends.
