According to his father's terms, Michael Rosevear's duty is to be ignored--until such time as he is useful. Now that the earldom is in need of funds, Michael is to be sold off in marriage to the daughter of a crass but wealthy merchant willing to pay for any connection to nobility--even one from the wrong side of the blanket . . .
En route to his fate in London, Michael does not plan to board an extra passenger. Yet there is something in the young miss's desperate plea that tugs at his conscience--though he is certain her story is a fabrication . . .
Juliana Crawford has fled her father's cruel home. Using a false name to evade pursuit, she must find a private traveler with whom to complete her escape. Chance matches her with a dark and wounded young lord who guards his own secrets just as carefully. The unlikely pair embark on a journey filled with revelations and unexpected adventure--one that may lead them to question whether to part at their destination--or change course entirely. . .
This is the third and last book in The Brides of Beadwell. What a series this has been, we started with Emma, then Lucy and now finally Juliana. I cannot recommend this series highly enough, I adored it from beginning to end.
This is the type of series to read, on those cold winter nights. With a lovely fire and cup of hot chocolate and a lovely snuggle jumper.
As you will remember from book 1, Juliana Crawford made a fleeting appearance and as you may remember she lives with her father who has bullied her and beaten her, (as for calling him a father he is a poor excuse of one).
So in this book Juliana has escaped her father (yes I did shout hooray), and is wanting to get to London. Now this were Juliana has a problem she hasn't any money and so she is looking for someone who would help her get to London. So what does she do she asks a gentleman if he would help her get to London. I will give Juliana her due, she may come across as been nervous and frightened but is definitely brave enough to ask a complete stranger to help her to London.
Well I now come too the stranger in question his name is Michael Rosevear who is the illegitimate son of The Marquess of Rosevear, who has a complicated relationship with his father, even though his father has acknowledged Michael, he never gave Michael the family name which is Brinley. Michael lives in Yorkshire at Rose Hall one of his father's many homes that he doesn't use and Michael was sent by his father when he came back injured from the war.
Now from here I really don't want to give too much away, all I will say is Michael has a dog called Gelert a Irish Wolfhound who slowly wins Juliana's heart. Also Emma and Lucy make a brief appearance. Now I hear you say does Juliana's father catch her, well you will just have to read the book and find out, because that would be spoiling the book.
As I've already mentioned I can highly recommend this book and I will give it 5/5 stars, I really want to give more.
This book is available to buy on 21st November on Amazon.
I received this book from Netgalley in return for a honest review.
