Blackmoore, A Proper Romance by Julianne Donaldson Book Review & Blog Tour
Author: Julianne Donaldson
Page Count: 276
Genre: Regency Romance
Book Brand: A Proper Romance
Kate Worthington knows she can never have her heart’s desire and so believes she will never marry. But Kate’s meddlesome mother has other plans. Kate journeys to the stately manor of Blackmoore on the cliffs above the seashore, where she must face the truth and the man that has kept her heart captive.
Set in northern England, Blackmoore is a Regency romance that tells the story of a young woman struggling to learn to follow her heart. With hints of Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters, Blackmoore is a page-turning tale of romance, intrigue and devotion.
Blackmoore was an amazing book reminiscent of Jane Austen! I loved Kate, she was so determined to be different than her mother and her sisters. I admired her strength and her moral character. Then there was Henry, *sigh*. Henry and his sister Sylvia, were Kate's neighbors and best friends. I honestly think that everyone needs their own Henry! What a guy! And every man needs their own Kate! A girl who was so comfortable being herself yet so determined to make her own way. I read this book in one sitting! I couldn't seem to get enough of the story and the pages flew by quickly. Blackmoore was truly a 'proper romance' and one that you won't want to miss!!! It is completely different then Edenbrooke, yet it draws you in the same way! Author Julianne Donaldson has a gift and I am so glad she decided to share it with the world! Flawless writing and regency romance at its best, Blackmoore is a five star stellar novel!
