    1. Sophie

      I have loved all of Heidi's previous stories and so I was really excited for another tale from one of my favourite authors! And I was not disappointed for it was brilliant! It is definitely one of my favourites from this author. Although I would say it is the most serious of her stories so far, it still had plenty of humour! I also believe it is her most romantic novel yet - no wonder it has become such a favourite with me!Let's start with the writing. As it had been a while since I read any of [...]

      There's a lot to love about this book! It's a Regency romance and proper speech is used. That took me a little bit to get used to, and I loved it! Elizabeth Armistead is beautiful but doesn't want that to be what men focus on. She's engaged to Mr. Cruikshank, who is blind so she knows he loves her for who she is and not how she looks. He's planning to join her in a month. She meets Colin Lloyd-Jones who had just broken off an engagement and was determined to stay away from all social engagements [...]

      I really enjoy this time period and the characters in this story are delightful! I love the references to Miss Delacourt.Elizabeth is a beautiful young woman and she knows it, yet she isn't vain at all. She's a very kind and caring person and just wants to be loved for who she is and not what she looks like. She is engaged to be married and therefore, feels it is safe to go about London, since she's not looking for that special someone. Sometimes, when you least expect it, that someone appears. [...]

      Interested in joining the tour for May 18-25? Sign up here.4.5 starsThis was such a fun and sweet Historical Romance! Everything that I love about these types of books was present: a well-researched setting, likable characters, love that isn't instantaneous, humor, tension, and a story that flowed and drew me in. Let me get into some specificsI really enjoyed these characters! Elizabeth is quite stunning. She knows she is, but instead of it being a point for conceit, it is something that bothers [...]

      Oh how I LOVE a good Regency Romance! And this one is SO. SO. SO. GOOD!When romance versus proprietye heart always wins, but not without a chaperone, lots of gossip and possibly a scandal :)Miss Elizabeth Armistead is betrothed to a British soldier, Duncan.She was there, in India, when he had his accident and has been by his side during his healing.Only he didn't heal fully, he was blinded.But Elizabeth feels this is a blessing for she knows that he loves her for more than her beauty that he can [...]

    6. Ruth Hill

      From the first page of this romance, I was completely smitten. This is a completely clean historical romance, and the story is simple but well-written. Although the ending is assured, the author quite deftly included a bit of tension right before the conclusion. That extra measure alone has made me a super fan of this author! In addition to this, the writing style is quite reminiscent of the classic authors such as the Bronte sisters and Jane Austen. I had to remind myself that this is a book wr [...]

      Another great Heidi Ashworth regency romance. I loved the added dimension to this book with Elizabeth Armistead having grown up in India. Colin is also a great hero, and it was fun to see some of the Delacourt characters flit in and out. There were a few unexpected twists and turns. An enjoyable read!

    8. Chrissy

      This is a cute, fun, regency book. For me, it started out a little slow but got better. I appreciated that it was clean but had some good kisses and ended HEA.

      GreatThis another wonderful book. Took a little while to really get into the story but once there I could not put the book down until I finished the story. Great book. A must read nook.

    10. Julie

      This book is reminiscent of Jane Austen's style with witty dialogue, great historical setting and detail, and some fun twists and turns on the road to love. We are first introduced to Miss Armistead, a young woman who has come from India to England to get ready for her marriage to a Mr. Cruikshank. While she is in England, her carriage breaks down and she is forced to knock on a gentleman's door and ask for assistance. This certain gentleman, a Mr. Lloyd-Jones is cynical of women and their trust [...]

      This is the first book of Heidi Ashworth's that I have read. I am familiar with the titles of some of her books, but have not read them yet. (Yes, I just ordered two from .)Miss Armistead Makes Her Choice is a very enjoyable book. I loved Elizabeth Armistead's character. She is a wonderfully thoughtful woman. Her personality is often overlooked by her beautiful face. She wants to be known for who she is inside.Elizabeth is often taken advantage of because of her good nature. She agrees to become [...]

    12. Aimee (Getting Your Read On)

      I love books that transport me back to old English times. Regency romance is one of my favorite genres, especially when an author writes in a way that scenes just come alive in my head. This was a book that filled my head with beautiful visions and played out like a movie.The book started off a bit slow for me and it took little while for me to get into the rhythm and characters but when I did, I couldn’t put it down. I loved Miss Armistead’s character. She is all things gentle and kind. Her [...]

      4.5 StarsI love the Miss Delacourt series of books. This story has some of the characters from those books, but takes place at the same time. If I remember correctly, I don't think Miss Armistead and Miss Delacourt meet. I could be wrong. But if you have read the Miss Delacourt books then this book has the same setting and such. The story is a clean, historical romance that was enjoyable to read.

    14. InD'tale Magazine

      4.5/5.0It’s rare indeed when an author can evoke extreme emotions. Steamy books can be found anywhere, but the ability to create passion in a sweet romance speaks to the unique talent of this author. Read full review in the 2014 August issue of InD’tale Magazine.

    15. Leila

      I always enjoy visiting the regency era through Heidi Ashworth's eyes. Her books are as educating as entertaining. The tale elicits emotions for the principals and although suspected a happy ending I was anxious for how and when it would happen. I wasn't disappointed.

    16. Tina at Mommynificent

      I enjoyed this book immensely. It was a definite nod to Jane Austen, and I felt it could actually stand with her books. It is a well-written novel with a lovely ending.

    17. Tara

      I really enjoy Ms Ashworth's book. I love how this takes place before and during the Miss Delacourt series. It was fun to expand the characters and see how they fit in. I'll be back for more!

    18. Donna

      DelightfulThis has romance, jealousy, despair, and danger. The only negative for some might be the VERY proper language. but I loved it!

    19. Maria Thomas

      I am persuaded that while I found this book quite enjoyable, the repeated use of the phrase "I am persuaded" gets annoying. And in this book the phrase is repeated A LOT. That, however, was my biggest complaint. It is always hard to understand why someone would be willing to continue an engagement thru to marriage when they are in love with someone else, particularly when that someone is a catch and everyone except your best friend wants you to marry him. It is a matter of honor. In our society, [...]

    20. Charissa

      This was an okay read. The ending was great, but I found it hard to plod through the pages to get there. The book was well edited, and it might have been because of my mood that I didn't LOVE it. I don't know. I enjoyed the romance as it played out, but the characters weren't my favorite for some reason. Maybe it was because it was hard for me to put myself in Miss Armistead's place. If I liked someone else, I certainly wouldn't be marrying some guy I didn't love. But it was a different time per [...]

    21. Tiffany Bourgeois

      Good story but annoyingly repetitiveI enjoyed the overall story, but had a hard time getting into the story with the repeating of the following two phrases. The first is the constant "I am persuaded" and the second is the use of "self-same". The two were so repetitive that once you noticed they were there, it was very hard not to notice anything different. The other issue I had was her so called best friend, Katherine. She was the worst sort of person, and Elizabeth had much too much patience fo [...]

    22. Lorna Gundaker

      I loved it!This is an excellent Regency with a very different plot. I don’t want to give away the plot, but suffice it to say that Lord Lloyd-Jones thought he was in love till he realized the morals of his love and thought his heart was broken. Miss Armistead is returning from India with her Mother and self-serving best friend, having saved a man’s life. Many delightful plot twist and lovely longings later, romance saves the day. This book is a well deserved read to cherish. I know I will re [...]

    23. Stephanie

      Excellent! Clean historical romances are hard to find. I'm so glad I saw this one on my BookBub deals. The author takes care to use more period-appropriate verbiage than other period books, sometimes it felt stilted; but so did pride and prejudice. :) I enjoyed staying up until 1:30am to finish this book. The fact that it's book 6 and I'm haven't read the fist 5 didn't seem to matter. I'm assuming the first 5 have been about different people. Elizabeth and Colin make a good couple. I wish the re [...]

      *FULL REVIEW*I'm going to mull this over in my mind for a little bit then will write my full review. There were many parts I liked, even really enjoyed, and there were just as many that I didn't like or that frustrated me. I found myself skimming parts of the book because I was frustrated and then other parts where I wanted to catch the whole scene and garner all the information that I could. More of my musings to come soon. -----------------------------------------------Musing time.ok in all ho [...]

    25. Ashley

      A regency romance with regency language (makes some of it hard to understand). A fun little read, but I couldn’t help but think of if this were real life. Sure we were led to love Elizabeth and Colin as a couple, but she had promised to marry another man. So really we were looking into the lives of those committing adultery. And to make it not seem so bad, the author made the fiancé into a bad guy to tie it up nicely for the couple that wanted to be together.

    26. Hanna

      Thoroughly Enjoyable This lighthearted Recgency romp has engaging characters and a rather unique, unpredictable plot. The hero was introduced in a way that made him appear shallow and insubstantial, characteristics that proved to be untrue. With a stronger beginning I would probably have given this five stars.

    27. Norma Peramo

      Wonderfully written plot and quirky, endearing charactersA wonderfully written plot with an unsuspecting twist. The characters are enchanting and quirky, adding to the delight of the reader. Colin and Elizabeth are destined for romance and true love prevails. Fast paced ending that will keep you glued to the pages. Kudos to Ms Ashworth on an excellent, stand alone book.
