A gloriously romantic tale full of carefully researched historical detail (the storyline at the Whitby shipyards was fascinating) with a dark backstory, a hero to fall in love with and a heroine to root for.
Couldn't put it down & didn't want it to end!
Just to clarify how much I adored it, the last few chapters had me pausing to literally kick my legs in a happy little jig, you know the one you do, when you just can't contain your excitement? I wanted to hug my kindle and never let it go. This story just had everything!
Ianthe Holt is on a train heading into an uncertain future. Her brother has just informed her that, as well as visiting their Auntie, Ianthe is to meet and interview with the one person she can't stand to be in a room with, Sir Charles Lester. Ianthe already doesn't like that her brother has been spending more time with the man and now he's talking about her marrying him! She can't think of anything worse.
Robert Felstone is also on the train looking at an uncertain future. He was just declined by the woman he thought would make a suitable wife, which means he has less of a chance at securing a shipyard that would help him finally become a respected man in society. The only thing he really wants.
After a rather ungentlemanly introduction and a few heated words between the two of them, Mr Felstone and Miss Holt find themselves in an agreement, one they aren't both entirely sure what to make of. Will Ianthe be able to let go of the past and allow herself to be the person she wants to be and will Robert Felstone become capable of something he always thought he wasn't - Love?
Oh I can't urge you enough to pick up a copy of this book to find out the answers!!!
Sometimes I feel like books are very similar to people. In the sense that we can meet people for the first time and feel like we have known them forever. This story felt like that to me. I instantly felt like I knew these characters and that I already had a huge connection to them, after only reading a couple of paragraphs. I felt every emotion going reading their stories. From protectiveness to fear, to happiness, sympathy and anger. It was a roller-coaster ride for sure.
Ianthe is a strong, determined woman, who fears that her shameful past will catch up with her. I felt for her so much that she carried such a burden. To think that in those days, women were to be so prim and proper and were looked at in disgrace, if they so much as looked at a man in a certain way, is quite astonishing. Feeling every bit of angst or worry from Ianthe only made me realize just how much time has changed since the 1900's. Ianthe was wonderful, she was clever and brave and I wanted her to be the person she had locked away and be truly happy again. I felt very protective of her straight away and could have dived into my kindle to keep her safe from Charles Lester. He made my blood boil. Thankfully she had Robert Felstone to look after her. May I get one of him too please?? *Sigh* He was dashing! I loved how he got himself into a rut with Ianthe by telling her he needed someone respectable, I found myself quietly laughing at the situations he got himself in to because of that. The whole relationship between him and Ianthe was perfect and I don't mean that their story was perfect, I just mean them together. The way they were written and the way their story played out, it was just perfection.
I loved every shock, every dip, every turn, every dance, every interaction, every conversation, every shy smile, every flirtatious smile, I loved it all. Robert and Ianthe are my new favourite people and I very much could have climbed into my kindle to visit them.
Thank you Jenni Fletcher for getting in touch with us, I do so hope that this review does your marvelous book justice.
Who knew shipping magnates could be so... "She had no idea he was so...solid." Robert Felstone is a solid character, complex, loyal and with unspoken depths that are revealed at the hand of Ianthe.
Both Robert and Ianthe are torn by mistakes of the past, they have both shaped and molded their lives to be what they think society accepts. But together they realise, that truly it only matters what, you and yours, think and I agree wholeheartedly!
A marriage of convenience set to take you through the gentle awakenings of love whilst throwing you into the depths of obsession and the ugliness it can entail. Delightful and gripping, wonderfully written. 4.5/5 stars from me. A highly recommended read.
I Recieved an ARC in return for an honest review. #MillsandBoonInsiders
Ianthe and Robert are both looking at uncertain futures until Robert devises a plan that could help both of them.
Ianthe is a governess who has had to leave her post because of a scandal that involved the family's oldest son. Since then she has been dressing in unrelenting black and dark grey and trying to make herself as dowdy as possible.
Robert wants to get into polite society and to expand his ship building yard and to do that he wants to buy Mr Harper's business, and Robert thinks that by getting married it will help him get the business. Unfortunately for Robert the lady he proposed to Louisa Allendon turned him down because he wasn't good enough for her.
Percy is Ianthe's brother and he has got some gambling debts and is very easily lead and is also friends with Charles Lester (he knew Percy's and Ianthe's late mother), and is also very creepy and takes a rather uncommon interest in Ianthe.
I can't reveal anymore because they would be too many spoilers.
I loved every minute of this book and would highly recommend it.
I would give the 5/5 stars
I received this book as a ARC in exchange for an honest review.
