Review: The Captivating Lady Charlotte by:Carolyn Miller

 The Captivating Lady Charlotte (Regency Brides: A Legacy of Grace, #2)
About the Book:
Her heart is her own--but her hand in marriage is another matter

Lady Charlotte Featherington is destined for great things on the marriage market. After all, as the beautiful daughter of a marquess, she should have her pick of the eligible nobility when she debuts. She, however, has love at the top of her list of marriageable attributes. And her romantic heart falls hard for one particularly dashing, attentive suitor. Sadly for Charlotte, her noble father intends her betrothed to be someone far more dull.

William Hartwell may be a duke, but he knows he was Charlotte's father's pick, not the young lady's own choice. And the captivating Lady Charlotte does not strike him as a woman who will be wooed by his wealth or title. While she has captured his heart, he has no idea how to win hers in return--and the betrayal and scandal his first wife put him through makes it difficult for him to believe that love can ever be trusted. His only hope is that Charlotte's sense of responsibility will win out over her romantic notions.

Can a widowed duke and a romantically inclined lady negotiate a future and discover love beyond duty? Will they be able to find healing and hope from the legacy of grace? Poignant and charming, this is another beautifully written, clean and wholesome Regency romance from Carolyn Miller.


My Review:
 Lady Charlotte and all of her grandeur can not win her father's favor when it comes to who she will betrothed to. She wants so desperately to be wed to someone else, when her father picks William Hartwell. William is a widower with a prestigious title. He seems to have fallen for Lady Charlotte, but she doesn't seem very interested in him. William hopes that time will tell and Lady Charlotte's attitude will change.

 The different viewpoint on this novel was an added bonus when I realized the series is intertwining with The Elusive Miss Ellison. I reviewed that book as well and these regency novels are fabulous and full of life. I do recommend reading all of the books in the Regency Brides series but they could stand on their own if you want to read them as a stand alone book.

 A great read that takes us through a difficult romance and of faith. William has to learn to love and trust again and Charlotte has to set her standards elsewhere and make a life for herself. A great series!
