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.

    Story
    "Delightful and Compelling"

    Loved this period novel. Full of humanities longing, fear and hope. Beautifully and tenderly written. The narrator is brilliant. The story is not the type that I usually enjoy. But, this book was an exception.

    "Well written and delightful story"

    This book speaks to how true love and loyalty grows and lasts forever.

    In a world that is obsessed with shallow and purely physical relationships, this book delves into what true love looks and feels like.

    Great read!

    "Loved this book."

    Can't remember the last time I left a five star review for a book. And cried buckets! Better than Wuthering Heights and Rebecca.

    Story
    "Beautifully written romance that Jane Austen fans will love"

    I don't leave many reviews, but this story was phenomenal. You can't help but get caught up in the story line, which is a real romance that spans a few years, but is quick paced enough to keep you wanting more. The story is heartfelt with deeply built characters. Would highly recommend! My heart and soul loved it.

    Story
    "Wonderful!"

    Simply delightful! First of all, the narration was magnificent. This book was recommended to me because of the narrator and it was a suggestion I'm so glad I acted upon. The story, the characters, the setting, and the writing overall were all excellent. I just adore Henry.

    What more can I say? I really liked this!

    Story
    "Truly a "Proper Romance"!"

    Loved the book! Sometimes you just need a brilliant, heart tingling good old fashioned romance. The charters are rich and well done and the story does not disappoint. I fell in love... Isn't that the point? I think I may have even liked a slight bit more than Edenbrooke!

    Story
    "Loved this book! Great narrator."

    I loved this book. I listened to both this and Edenbrook. I liked Edenbrook but I loved Blackmoore. Edenbrooke is mostly light hearted with lots of fun flirting and banter, but to me Blackmoore has a lot more depth and character development. I loved all the bird allusions and metaphors woven into the story. I think the authors particular talent in both books is the relationship building that she gives us with her hero and heroine. We get plenty of conversations between hero and heroine, plenty of moments, banter, and interaction so that the love relationship feels really developed and satisfying. Her heroes are some of the most likeable I've come across in literature. Prepare yourself to be quite smitten with the charming heroes of both Edenbrook and Blackmoore. I also loved that both her books are satisfyingly romantic while remaining quite clean. I hope that the author has many more books coming!

    "Enthralling story"

    This story started out very slow. I almost thought about not finishing it, even though that would probably be impossible for me. Once it started picking up though I could not stop listening! It was intriguing and enthralling and consuming. Everything a really good book is! Push through the beginning because it's totally worth it!
