Publisher's Summary

Kate Worthington knows her heart and she knows she will never to marry. Her plan is to travel to India instead - if only to find peace for her restless spirit and to escape the family she abhors. But Kate’s meddlesome mother has other plans. She makes a bargain with Kate: India, yes, but only after Kate has secured - and rejected - three marriage proposals.
Kate journeys to the stately manor of Blackmoore determined to fulfill her end of the bargain sooner rather than later and enlists the help of her dearest childhood friend, Henry Delafield. But when it comes to matters of love, bargains are meaningless and plans are changeable. There on the wild lands of Blackmoore, Kate must face the truth that has kept her heart captive. Will the proposal she is determined to reject actually be the one thing that will set her heart free?
Set in Northern England in 1820, Blackmoore is a regency romance that tells the story of a young woman struggling to learn how to follow her heart.

I hardly know where to begin with this was exquisite! What a delightful listen.....I was sucked in from the beginning and couldn't put it down. This book is a beautifully written "clean" romance that is emotionally charged and is filled with honor, respect, chivalry and love. (I honestly didn't miss the sex scenes!). It's family friendly so I would feel comfortable letting a young girl also listen and enjoy.

I have to give a shout out to the narrator because she did a great job.

I highly recommend this to everyone!

Truly a PROPER Romance

What other book might you compare Blackmoore to and why?

Blackmoore was a unique story. I haven't read any books like it before.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Henry was talking about how Kate's "heart" loved him and wanted to curl up next to him. It was so cute and adorable. I don't want to give away any details though.

Any additional comments?

I loved this book. Great narrator! The opening of the book says its a "Proper Romance".... And it was! There is no inappropriate is proper and yet it totally hooked me in and I loved the progression of the love story. The story was unique and entrapped me.
Maybe it was slightly slow moving compared to most books I enjoy, but it was a delightful and surprising change of pace and loved every minute.
My only complaint would be I wanted more at the end. I mean I would have like to have a good long epilogue, but then that's me being selfish....maybe then it wouldn't have been so proper... ;-)
