Kingscastle
Kingscastle: A classic Regency romance in the tradition of Georgette Heyer | Sophia Holloway
3 posts | 1 read
The younger son of a youngest son, Captain William Hawksmoor of the Royal Navy never expected to inherit a marquessate, and is none too pleased when he does so, especially when he learns that the he is required to marry within a year or be forever dealing with Trustees. As the new Marquis of Athelney, he takes command of Kingscastle, the family seat, and discovers much to be done to set it in order. There is also his aunt, Lady Willoughby Hawksmoor, determined that her timid daughter should be the next marchioness. When she discovers he is far more interested in Eleanor Burgess, her under-paid and much put-upon companion, Lady Willoughby will stop at nothing to keep them apart.

A nice diversion, a bit tamer than a lot of romances I‘ve read recently. Former navy captain, new marquis must marry within a year, and meets the perfect woman, who is companion to his thoroughly evil aunt. There‘s also a budding romance between the marquis‘s friend/steward and the parson‘s sister, a flood, and some general mayhem. All‘s well in the end, and it was a fun read

Reading the tagged book, but limited reading time, since we‘ve had granddaughter babysitting duty this weekend. I think that‘s a good excuse 😄

Andrew65 Good luck with any reading you get to. 4mo
