It is my honor to feature today a great book. Honor by Jaimey Grant.
Lady Verena Westbridge would rather die than marry. When her father accepts the depraved Percival Winters on her behalf, flight seems her only option and entering into menial service the perfect hiding place. Resigning herself to serving her own kind for the rest of her life, she naively believes she is safe.
Lord Connor Northwicke arrives at a house party and rescues a young housemaid from the unwelcome advances of a brute. Feeling the need to be near her, he offers her friendship. But her disguise is undone and he must save her from her own father by doing the very thing she fears most. He must marry her.
But as Verena's past emerges in bits and pieces, fear threatens to overcome love. Verena must fight for her marriage...and her sanity.
While Jaimey writes what I consider to be "clean" romances, she also infuses her stories with what she calls an "edge". This is usually in the form of a social or personal tragedy that though existed back in the Regency years of England, it was considered taboo and unspeakable. You'll love how the characters deal with these issues in a time period appropriate manner.
Honor is the third book I've read from her, and I have to say, the stories are all fabulous and different. The characters intermingle in each book, so once you read one of Jaimey's novels, you'll be eager to read the next and the next and the next!
If you are a fan of Victoria Holt, you'll be a fan of Jaimey Grant.
