This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
A sweet Regency set romance from New York Times bestselling author Mary Blayney. The Braedon Family Series, Book One.
Morgan Braedon is not the slightest bit interested in marriage though his family thinks it’s essential to his future. Morgan needs one more year at the gaming tables to reach his financial goals and then he will walk away from gambling forever.
Christiana Lambert is not the slightest bit interested in marriage to anyone but her childhood sweetheart who is fighting abroad. While he is away she is going to London to party and avoid men with marriage on their mind.
Morgan and Christiana meet and plan a sham courtship to fool his family and guarantee her an escort. But love takes them by surprise and the game changes more than one life.
This romance has the standard elements of any romance but it is so well written you believe Mary Blayney was the first to come up with the structure. The novel is well written and warmed my heart while reading.
The challenge of writing a good regency romance is to create characters who are interesting enough that chaste courtship will hold the reader's attention. His Heart's Delight is just such a story. I really enjoyed the characters in this story including the supporting characters. I enjoyed watching a young girl come of age and recognize her lack of knowledge regarding affairs of the heart. And who doesn't love a rogue that has a heart? I liked this book and am glad that I can recommend it to my teenaged daughter.
