Saving Grace

About the book: From Whitney Award Winning Author, Michele Paige Holmes, comes SAVING GRACE, a regency romance from the Hearthfire Romance series: 

After the death of her grandfather, the Duke of Salisbury, Grace Thatcher wants nothing more than to live quietly in the country with her younger siblings. Her father’s debts thwart those plans, and to protect her sister, Helen, Grace must marry a man of her father’s choosing. 

As each suitor proves less than desirable, Grace comes up with clever schemes, causing each to reject her. While staying at the mysterious Sutherland Hall, a middle-of-the-night mishap sends Grace into the arms of a stranger, Nicholas Sutherland—and provides inspiration for her grandest plan yet—one that will leave her reputation in tatters yet free both her and Helen from all possibility of marriage. 

Too late Grace regrets her rash actions when her father’s last choice, Mr. Samuel Preston, proves to be a gentleman and a friend. But Samuel is the sworn enemy of Nicholas Sutherland, the man responsible for her “ruin.” Now instead of being free, Grace is caught between two men—each with his own agenda.

My review: I'm glad that I didn't have to live in the Regency time period. I've always thought that it seemed romantic, but after reading this one I realized that in that time period that fathers could basically sell their daughters to suitors for money. Crazy! I really loved the character of Grace and I thought she showed a lot of spunky personality. It takes a lot of spunk to make each man reject you just to save your younger sister from being sold to an even worse husband by their own father. And to make matters worse, she ruins her own reputation and has her own servants gossip about her. I didn't particularly like Nicholas at the beginning, but he did grow on me as he kind of woke up and learned to love and care for Grace. But Grace is determined that she will be the mistress of her own destiny and is constantly pushing him away. The plot at first was kind of slow moving for me, but by the end I didn't want to put it down until I found out just what would happen to Grace and Nicholas. Don't miss this great book by a great author!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
