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.

    I am quiet and love being comfortable. I love curling up in a corner either reading or listening to a nice romantic book.

    Story
    "Interesting!!"

    This is my first book by the author and needless to say it was interesting but dragged a little too much for me. It was not my normal historical but it was a good listen. The narrator did not bring this book alive like she could have. Just because of the storyline and this narrator, I found myself losing interest in this book more than once.

    Boring boring boring! I was desperate and it was the middle of the night - this is my only excuse for giving it a try. Dreadful

    A book lover with a romantic soul, but willing to take a leap of faith. I LOVE to get sucked into a story and live there for a bit.

    Story
    "Would you like some cheese with your whine?"

    What could have been a good story is ruined by a whiny self- aggrandized heroine. The plot is very good and the writing is good. The narrator does a great job, but the heroine is just abysmal! She includes herself in the plans of others (Whether they want her there or not) and then whines about it for the first 1/2 of the book. After she finally gets to Blackmoore, the story gets MUCH better and the romance and sacrifice become exident. That being said, the Mother is just a little TOO much to be believable.
    It is a good book once you get past the whining and the childish behavior. I actually loved it in the end, but you have to get through the first 1/2 to get there. It isn't bad if you find it on sale.
