Publisher's Summary

Kate Worthington knows her heart and she knows she will never to marry. Her plan is to travel to India instead - if only to find peace for her restless spirit and to escape the family she abhors. But Kate’s meddlesome mother has other plans. She makes a bargain with Kate: India, yes, but only after Kate has secured - and rejected - three marriage proposals.

Kate journeys to the stately manor of Blackmoore determined to fulfill her end of the bargain sooner rather than later and enlists the help of her dearest childhood friend, Henry Delafield. But when it comes to matters of love, bargains are meaningless and plans are changeable. There on the wild lands of Blackmoore, Kate must face the truth that has kept her heart captive. Will the proposal she is determined to reject actually be the one thing that will set her heart free?

Set in Northern England in 1820, Blackmoore is a regency romance that tells the story of a young woman struggling to learn how to follow her heart.

    "Narrator grows on you..."

    I didn't like the narrator at first but after a while I came to appreciate her interpretation of the characters and her diversity in reading with different accents. I usually don't like it when narrators enunciate every word in a proper English accent but the more I listened the more I liked it in this book.

    I have read this book and liked it. It has an interesting plot with wonderful characters and no salacious sex scenes. I really like how the heroine doesn't give up on her dreams for a man and still has a 'happily ever after'. I will be listening to this again and purchasing more books by this author.

    "Great Story!"

    Great story. It was hard to put it down. There is always a little more emotion in this author's stories than I'm totally comfortable with, but the beautiful stories make it worthwhile.

    Any additional comments?

    Excellent new writer! I look forward to more from her. Well-developed, believable main character. Unlike most within this genre, the story line was not predictable and kept me wanting more. Interesting and realistic plot. Fabulous narrator. I highly recommend this audio book!

    "Romance !"

    A lovely romantic story, much like a Jane Austin novel. Beautifully read by Cassandra Campbell.

    "One of the best audio books yet"
    What did you love best about Blackmoore?

    The wonderful descriptive language made you feel as if you were there with Kate. The performance by Cassandra Campbell was superb. I hate to read Ms. Donaldson's next book in case the quality is not at this level.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blackmoore?

    Kate finding the caged bird.

    "My new favorite"

    Absolutely LOVED it! Not only is the story wonderful but the narrator read with such feeling that it truly added to the greatness of this novel. I've listened to it more than 10 times at least. My new favorite book & definitely fave audiobook.

    "A clean love story"

    I read this book when it was released and really enjoyed the story. I had thought then that it would be fantastic as an audiobook, as I prefer audiobooks to be in first person. This book was light yet deep and I loved Henry. Kate was a decent heroine-- strong willed and fighting to be seen beyond her family. She was also selfless with her love.

    This story flashes between present and past and is done is such a way as not to be confusing. In fact, it really helped keep an otherwise predictable story interesting.

    The narrator was great. Her voice was perfect for Kate. Her accent is authentic, unlike in the last book I listened to :)
