What happens when a rebel meets a runaway?
He’s not looking for love...
Confirmed bachelor Theo Cavanagh is dashing and free-spirited. Not for him a career in the clergy, the military or politics - he’s more interested in wine and horses. But when Theo happens upon a pretty but thoroughly exasperating young fugitive, he soon finds himself caught up in her adventures, and in a passion that can’t be denied.
She has to search her heart...
Unconventional Sophie Devereux is more comfortable climbing trees than the social ladder. An audacious escape from scheming relatives is only the start of Sophie’s mission to achieve a long-held dream, but Sophie carries a secret that inspires hatred, envy and greed. She can’t outrun the danger that stalks her, or her powerful response to Theo which leaves Sophie shaken to the core and questioning her deepest, most enduring desire.
I admit that I judge a book by it's cover and this one is gorgeous! The cover alone made me want to read it! Cover aside, this book is AMAZING! I love regencies and this one is unlike any regency that I have read! Sophie literally drops into Theo's lap and their adventure begins! There is mystery, swoon worthy kisses, sizzling chemistry and action that leaps off the page at you! If every book by Hanbury is like this, I will be reading all of them! It was a page turner from the beginning and held my attention throughout the entire book. The pace was perfect and had just the right balance of romance, action and intrigue! If you want a regency with depth to its characters and romance that you can feel, then A Bright Particular Star is for you! I will be acquiring more Hanbury books shortly because I cannot wait to discover what else she has written!
You can pick up your own copy of A Bright Particular Star via Amazon.
