My pick for this week is….
Prelude for a Lord by Camille Elliot
Genre:Christian Regency Romance
Release Date:August 5,2014
It is their music that heals them, but it may also drive them apart.
Lady Alethea is living in Bath, England, with her aunt and waiting for her 30th birthday in order to claim her inheritance so she can pursue her passion for music. She is alarmed to learn that someone is trying to steal her violin, which was left to her by an Italian widow who was like a mother to her. She is forced to ask for help from Lord Dommick, who is known for his expertise in music and his knowledge of violins.
Traumatized by his time spent fighting the French on the Peninsula, Lord Dommick is desperate to dispell the rumors of his madness for the sake of his sister, who will be coming out in London in the spring.
Alethea and Dommick’s families are threatened when their plan to discover the would-be thief is realized. Dommick proposes that Alethea and her family come stay at his country house with his family to better protect them all.
Alethea has come to trust and love Dommick, but he is so preoccupied with his own demons that he pays no attention. It’s not until Alethea is kidnapped that Dommick is forced to stare down his struggles and realize that Alethea loves him completely. But will he find her in time to confess his feelings, and will they realize who is behind the threats? A one-of-a-kind violin has put them all in danger.
Why I am excited:
I love the regency period and I am always excited to find a clean regency.The heroine is waiting to turn 30 so she can pursue her passion for music.I love music and love reading books with music in them.The hero is back from fighting the French and is wounded but not physically.I love any kind of wounded hero and can’t wait to see these two people fall in love.
What book are you most looking forward to?
