Country House Courtship - Giveaway!

This week I'll be giving away a copy of Linore Rose Burkard's lovely book, The Country House Courtship. Leave a comment to get your name in the hat!

Here is a summary of the book:

England, 1818: It has been five years since Ariana Forsythe married The Paragon, Mr. Phillip Mornay. Now, Ariana's sister, Miss Beatrice Forsythe, is seventeen and determined to marry advantageously as well. (Surely Ariana's society connexions all but guarantee Beatrice's success-especially if Mr. Mornay is created a baronet by the Prince Regent!

But the Mornay's have disappeared from high society as they raise a family at their country estate. Can Beatrice persuade them to chaperone her in London? And what about her business with the curate, Mr. O'Brien, whom Beatrice rashly promised to marry years earlier? She is too sophisticated now to settle for a mere clergyman-despite his agreeable countenance and gentle, understanding ways. When Mr. Tristan Barton becomes tenant of the Manor House, Beatrice's hopes seem to have found their object. But when Ariana falls gravely ill, secrets come to light, motives are revealed, and pretenses that are easy to keep up in the darkness begin to crumble. As hearts are bared and truths uncovered, a country house courtship like no other cannot be far behind!

Fans of Linore's first books, Before the Season Ends, and The House on Grosvenor Square, will be delighted with final addition to the Regency Inspirational Series, as will all readers of historical romance.

And as if that wasn't enough to tempt you, go here to read the first chapter. Excerpt PDF from "The Country House Courtship"

Country House Courtship is the third book in Mrs. Burkard's Regency series. The first book was Before the Season Ends, and you can go here to read my review.

The second book in the series was The House in Grosvenor Square, another big favorite of mine! Go here to read that review.

Remember, one lucky commenter will win a copy of Country House Courtship, which you can actually read without having read the first two books, or if you like, I believe Linore would be willing to give you a copy of book one or book two instead. We'll ask her nicely. I think she'll say yes. :-)
