Kate Worthington knows her heart and she knows she will never marry. Her plan is to travel to India instead—if only to find peace for her restless spirit and to escape the family she abhors. But Kate’s meddlesome mother has other plans. She makes a bargain with Kate: India, yes, but only after Kate has secured—and rejected—three marriage proposals.
Kate journeys to the stately manor of Blackmoore determined to fulfill her end of the bargain and enlists the help of her dearest childhood friend, Henry Delafield. But when it comes to matters of love, bargains are meaningless and plans are changeable. There on the wild lands of Blackmoore, Kate must face the truth that has kept her heart captive. Will the proposal she is determined to reject actually be the one thing that will set her heart free?
Set in Northern England in 1820, Blackmoore is a Regency romance that tells the story of a young woman struggling to learn how to follow her heart. It is Wuthering Heights meets Little Women with a delicious must-read twist.
Oh my words…Blackmoore was a BEAUTIFUL story, just like Edenbrooke and lets just say it was just as sweet and catching too. I loved Henry’s and Kate’s relationship how it started out as a great friendship and then unbeknowing between each other it blossoms into something extremely beautiful and breath taking. I loved how Henry kept teasing Kate about being the giver of her hearts desire and that her heart (her cat) adores him. I will say that I loathed her family, Kate couldn’t of been cursed with such an atrocious family then what she was dealt with. I know I’ve said it already but it was just BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL. I commend you Julianne, you do a wonderful job of writing these Regency novels and putting just the right amount of humor and sweetness in them. Please do write more when given the chance as you have a new found fan here who eats up your stories like delicious candy.
