Blog Tour - The Nobleman's Daughter Review and Giveaway


About the book: While British high society primps and plays, the impoverished citizens of London languish. But there are those fighting for the freedom of common citizens—including two members of the aristocracy who secretly champion revolution. In the drawing rooms of the upper class, Lady Amanda and Lord Nathaniel flirt and tease with the best of them as she pretends to win every heart in London for sport, and he, to conquer them. But in truth, their flirtation is merely a facade designed to keep their clandestine actions hidden from the ton—and from each other. When Nathaniel presents himself as a potential suitor, the attraction between the two is undeniable—but the faces they portray to the world are not enough to win each other's hearts.

While their crusade for London's poor unites them more deeply than they could imagine, Amanda and Nathaniel struggle to trust one another with their true ideals and identities. But when the call to action leads Amanda into the path of danger, she can only hope that Nathaniel will see through her frivolous pretense. Because now, only the aid of the suitor she loves most—but trusts least—can save her.

My review: I really liked this book. I liked the plot, the characters, and I really liked that it was based on events that actually happened. That made the whole thing even more real to me.

There were parts of this one that were a bit hard, not really hard to follow or understand, but the situation or how things really would have been were a bit hard or maybe harsh. The way that Charlie was treated when he was discovered with Amanda made me sad, yet I know that's how things really would have been. I loved Charlie, I loved his kindness and how hard he was willing to work to try to get what he wanted. I loved how he gave up everything he ever wanted in the end. 

I loved Amanda. I loved the way she was willing to work as well, even though she would have been cast out from society for some of the things she did. She even put her life in danger several times for those who would have been seen as below her station. I loved that she didn't care about those things.

Then there was Nathaniel. I loved the way the reader knows things about the characters that neither knows about the other, until way late in the plot. That made the story have even more depth to it. I liked the way Nathaniel seemed one way to Amanda, but he was really completely the opposite. I liked that you see at least some of the story through his eyes.

I liked that there was a crazy villain in this one! I liked that you even got to see some of what he was thinking and why he did some of the things he did. It's not often there's an actual villain in novels anymore and I thought it made this one really fun!

This book was so great! Once I started reading it, I didn't want to put it down!

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