Happy book birthday to A LADY MOST LOVELY by Jennifer Delamere! This book sounds awesome, and I can’t wait to read it.
Socialite Margaret Vaughn is the wealthiest heiress in London—or so everybody thinks. Saddled with debts left by her father, she agrees to marry a rich man who can save her family’s estate. But when her fiancé turns out to be just another poor social climber, Margaret faces financial ruin—and social humiliation. Just when she thinks all is lost, she finds an unlikely savior in Tom Poole . . .
After amassing a fortune in the gold fields of Australia and surviving a harrowing shipwreck, Tom Poole is the toast of London society. Yet despite his newfound fame, he’s never forgotten his own humble beginnings. When he learns of Margaret’s plight, he offers her financial assistance—but his interest is not strictly business. This rugged adventurer now seeks a different kind of gold. Although many men pursue Margaret’s hand because of her beauty and lands, can Tom convince her it’s her heart he’s after?
“Delamere follows An Heiress at Heart with an intense mid-Victorian Christmas story . . . Fans of inspirational romance will appreciate subtle references to Tom’s Christian faith and the lack of explicit sex scenes, and the undercurrent of attraction between Margaret and Tom is a powerful force that keeps the story moving.” – Publishers Weekly
“Delamere reaches out to readers yearning for a lovely story that is sensitive yet passionate. The power of love, second chances and even the joy of the holiday season combine to create the perfect atmosphere for this charmer.” –RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars
