I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating the launch of Catherine Tinley’s latest regency romance … The Captain’s Disgraced Lady.
I love a good regency romance; the travelling back in time to when ladies were introduced into society and when etiquette around the ton was paramount. This is the first work by Catherine Tinley that I’ve read and I particularly enjoyed how she wove a love story around a pivotal moment in European history. The Battle of Waterloo was a fierce fought battle that the officers and soldiers were summoned to whilst off duty at a ball in Brussels. Kitted out in their finery the men had to quickly say their goodbyes to their loved ones and march on to an unknown fate …
Julianna Milford and her mother were travelling from their home in Brussels to visit friends in England. Julianna first encounters Captain Harry Fanton on this journey and her first impressions to this gentleman is of his arrogant, brusque personality which immediately exasperates her.
Once settled at Chadcombe House, the home of her best friend Charlotte and her new husband Adam, her sense of serenity is disturbed by the arrival of Adam’s older brother, Captain Harry Fanton. Julianna cannot believe how fate has brought them together again.
Julianna’s mother’s health soon becomes a concern and Harry’s personality changes to one of a caring nature and Mrs Milford was to become his priority. However, the aristocratic circle is rife with gossip and rumours revolving Julianna and her mother, specifically Julianna’s parentage. Once again Harry steps in to defend the ladies from this malicious gossip.
A friendship of sorts soon develops between Julianna and Harry but you can sense that Harry is holding back on his emotions. This strong, charismatic, handsome Captain has a vulnerability about him which he’s afraid to show to anyone. Visions from past events have plagued his nights since the terrible ordeal Harry went through. With the uncertainty of war once again forefront in Harry’s mind can the demons from his past be laid to rest?
Can Julianna heal Harry’s heart and mind? Will history end up repeating itself for a blossoming new love?
The Captain’s Disgraced Lady is a story filled with intrigue, drama, family saga, historical events and romance all told in a beautiful manner. My heart was aching for the trauma Harry had endured but with this hope of a new beginning and love you are left feeling enlightened with warmth and positivity. An absolutely gorgeous regency romance.
