A captivating novella for a promising series! I came across this book during a random book-browsing session, and immediately liked the look of the whole series. I ordered book one, but wanted to give the novella a try first, and I'm glad I did since it sets a good foundation for the next book. The characters are interesting, the setting is lovely, and the story has a unique twist at the end that left me wanting more.
There are three novels and one more novella in the series (It takes me a while to catch up with all the fabulous books out there!), so the good news is, you don't have to stop once you start reading. I'll share more once I read the next installment.
This is a clean read.
About the Book
Margaretta Fortescue desperately needs to disappear from London society, and her only hope is to follow the rumors of another young woman who recently made a life for herself away from the glare of society. Her search leads her to the market town of Marlborough where, in spite of her efforts to avoid attention, she can't seem to elude local solicitor Nash Banfield.
All Nash wants is a quiet, sedate life--no risks or surprises. When Margaretta, clearly on the run and unwilling to answer questions, interrupts his solitude, his curiosity and his principles won't let him leave this determined woman without assistance.
But will discovering the truth about Margaretta make him think twice about finally taking a risk on love?
A Search for Refuge is an e-only novella that gives an exciting introduction to Kristi Ann Hunter's new Regency historical romance series, Haven Manor! Includes an extended excerpt of the first full-length novel in the series, A Defense of Honor.
The Reading Room is where I share books, because authors are readers, too. I don't rate books on my blog, but I do like to share books I've read and enjoyed (My mom recommends a few, too.). My tastes are eclectic, so expect to see everything from sweet, wholesome romance to edge-of-your-seat, sexy thrillers, and more in between.
