I’ve just cracked into the historical romance novel, The Education of Lord Hartley, written by Author Daphne du Bois! Being a fan of Ms. Daphne du Bois’s writing, I have no doubt I will enjoy this novel.
“Running away gives one the opportunity for freedom, but it does not necessarily make one free. In order to truly be free and independent one must be able to take a chance, a leap of faith. One must be able to admit to making the wrong choices, to changing one’s mind.” — Author Daphne du Bois, from THE EDUCATION OF LORD HARTLEY.
A traditional Regency romance in the style of Georgette Heyer…
She will settle for nothing less than love…
Miss Margaret Dacre dreams of two things: creating the gowns she’s been dreaming up in her sketchbooks and winning the love of Lord Hartley. And neither of these will come true if her father has his way and she marries her dreadful cousin Kingsley Stanhope.
But Maggie is not one to give up without a fight: she decides that she’s long-overdue an adventure and nothing less than Paris will do.
As Maggie and her dearest friend Cecile begin to establish their new identities in the most romantic city in the world, she discovers that love isn’t so easily left behind – especially when you’re trying to ignore it.
But will Lord Hartley ever see her as more than his best friend’s little sister? Or would the handsome conductor Sir Lucian Blake make for a better match?
Genre: Historical Romance
I think I’m really gonna like this one. 🙂 Review to follow!
