BLACKMOORE by Julianne Donaldson--book review

BLACKMOORE by Julianne Donaldson. This proper romance was a delightful read. Kate's character was easy to emphasize with, and Julianne did a fabulous job of drawing the reader into the setting. I felt like I was walking with Kate through Blackmoore and all her troubles. I enjoyed it from the beginning to the end, although the ending left me wanting more. It is a clean read that any romantic at heart would love.

Kate Worthington knows her heart and she knows she will never marry. Her plan is to travel to India instead—if only to find peace for her restless spirit and to escape the family she abhors. But Kate’s meddlesome mother has other plans. She makes a bargain with Kate: India, yes, but only after Kate has secured—and rejected—three marriage proposals.

Kate journeys to the stately manor of Blackmoore determined to fulfill her end of the bargain and enlists the help of her dearest childhood friend, Henry Delafield. But when it comes to matters of love, bargains are meaningless and plans are changeable. There on the wild lands of Blackmoore, Kate must face the truth that has kept her heart captive. Will the proposal she is determined to reject actually be the one thing that will set her heart free?

Set in Northern England in 1820, Blackmoore is a Regency romance of a young woman struggling to learn to follow her heart with a delicious must-read twist.
