Blog Tour - Romancing Daphne


About the book: As her first London Season looms before her, the thought of the impending social whirl fills Daphne Lancaster's timid heart with dread. She hasn't her sisters' beauty nor their talent for conversing easily. Even her family's enviable connections may not be enough to prevent disaster.

But Daphne's misery turns to surprised delight when the first even of her Season brings an unexpected visitor to her door—James Tilburn, whose tender kindness stole her heart in her youth. When the handsome young gentleman expresses his desire to court her, Daphne is elated. Their feelings for each other quickly grow, and it appears that, much to Daphne's disbelief, her happily ever after is within reach.

Yet nothing is as it seems. The couple finds themselves caught in a tangled web of greed and deceit, leaving James and Daphne to determine whether they are willing to risk everything for true love.

My review: Oh my goodness, I LOVED this book! I loved everything about it, the plot, the characters, the setting. So, so amazing!

First off, this book is not specifically about the Dastardly Duke, Adam, but he's in here enough to be so fun! I found some new quotes that are my favorites from him. For example, "If you overturn your carriage with her in it, I will shoot you dead. Dead." Or "...If I hear you have hurt her in any way, I will personally cut your liver out with a spoon, instruct my chef to prepare it with onions, and I will enjoy eating it immensely. And then I will kill you." Oh my goodness, Adam made me laugh! And I loved the care he takes for Persephone's family.

But this book is not specifically about him. It's about Daphne. And I really liked her as well. I liked her personality, she is quite and shy and overlooked. But she has a ready wit and she is much like Adam in the way she talks sometimes. I liked the way she is fiercely loyal to her family. And she doesn't seem like the simpering girls that I do not enjoy in Regency novels, she has substance. She is such a great character.

Then there's James. I liked the true him. He is a true gentleman through and through. He is kind of in a rough situation with the way his dad insists he court Daphne, but he tries his hardest and he is super selfless, through the whole book. And he doesn't give in to Adam or show his fear, that would be rough! He goes out of his way to protect Daphne and make sure she is all right after everything has happened. 

This is such a great book! I love the way Sarah M Eden writes her Regency Romances, I never want to put them down. They aren't dry and boring, like some can be. They are perfect!

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