Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soul-stirring, toe-curling and completely captivating Are you ready for my trademark Regency Romance squeal? Plug your ears -- Sqqqqquuuueeeeeee! I adored Carolyn Miller's debut novel, The Illusive Miss Ellison, which I read earlier this year and I'm happy to report she's wowed me again with Book Two in her Regency Brides : a Legacy of Grace series. If you've read the first book, you'll be thrilled to discover Lavinia and Nicholas play a major role in this one, though The Captivating Lady Charlotte reads beautifully as a standalone so no worries if you haven't. It features Lavinia's cousin, Charlotte -- the captivating lady who catches the eye of a duke. It's drawing rooms and balls and genteel conversation and all the social niceties associated with a young lady's 'coming out'. Including a dragonish mother's determination to find the perfect (aka rich and powerful) match for her marriageable daughter, which provided many laugh-out-loud (in a cringing kind of way) moments. Honestly -- such a delight to read! The staid Duke; the guileless young miss. He's a little world weary and cynical. She's wide-eyed with wonder -- though I have to admit that Charlotte irked me in the beginning. Her husband hunting seemed so shallow. Like she hadn't thought much further than achieving a proposal. But this is the kind of story that shows growth in the heroine which was a privilege to be privy to. Particularly her spiritual growth as she comes to understand that being a Christian and living as a Christian are two entirely different things. And then the author throws a bit of Gothic in with suspicious happenings at Hartwell Abbey and the sinister specter of danger threatens the Duke and all he holds dear. (Cue alarming organ music,) Soul-stirring, toe-curling and completely captivating. Book provided courtesy of Kregel Pulications

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Grace beyond what is seen Saturday, August 5, 2017 The Captivating Lady Charlotte by Carolyn Miller, © 2017 Regency Brides: A Legacy of Grace, Book 2 My Review: After reading the first book in the series, The Elusive Miss Ellison, I was looking forward to this second story in the series. I immediately was surprised to find the Marchioness dropping in for an extended visit unannounced under a pretense of being looked-for... as if the estate owner is just in wait for her arrival, rather than attending to the needs of the day. She did send a letter ahead, but its arrival has barely made it before her. "...Then we shall wait." --The Captivating Lady Charlotte, 211 Lady Charlotte Featherington certainly doesn't have the qualities of her Mama, which assuredly is a good thing! Without recommendation to her own thoughts and cares, Lady Charlotte is to fit into everyone else's plans and decisions for her. Fortunately, as her future looms before her, this current plan has merit. Well worth waiting for her to find it so beyond what is seen. For her unplanned adventure may unfold exactly as it should, a surprise even to herself. To be young and pensive, certain the ninth Duke of Hartington is much older... Her heart is so exposed as he sees her spared from contrived bias. An aspiration of hope and benefit to his life ~ his very livelihood. Mystery surrounds Hartwell Abbey as whispers and immediate family critiquing for their own means seek to destroy steps toward the desired relationship of assurance and trust. Author Carolyn Miller has built a story so soundly developed, the outcome is not assured as rosy. I look forward to reading the continuing story in the series of Grace by this author! ***Thank you to Kregel Blog Tours for inviting me on the tour for Carolyn Miller's novel, The Captivating Lady Charlotte, and for sending me a copy. This review was written in my own words. No other compensation was received.***

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful read It was a delight to crack the spin of this second book in the Regency Brides, A Legacy of Grace series by Carolyn Miller. The book is relatively short but certainly not short on enjoyment. Sometimes a story is seemingly endless as it nears or surpasses 400 pages. This delightful read is right at 300 pages and is just right. The pace is gentle but does not drag. The story is gentle and yet lively. The characters perfect for the time and social standing. It is quite enjoyable to read how gentlemen and ladies conducted themselves in early 1800s English society. And it was very nice to read a bit about the lead characters in the first book of the series and their interaction with the Lady Charlotte family. This is Christian fiction and a book that I could easily hand to a teen or a grandmother to read and feel comfortable. While romantic interludes occur, they are within the bounds of propriety both to the social era and to Christian morals. Simply stated, this is a good book and I am most certainly looking forward to the next in the series. Carolyn Miller is an author to watch and await new works. I received a complimentary copy from Kregel Publishing to facilitate this review. Opinions are my own and freely given.
