ABOUT BOOK: Her heart is her own--but her hand in marriage is another matter
Lady Charlotte Featherington is destined for great things on the marriage market. After all, as the beautiful daughter of a marquess, she should have her pick of the eligible nobility when she debuts. She, however, has love at the top of her list of marriageable attributes. And her romantic heart falls hard for one particularly dashing, attentive suitor. Sadly for Charlotte, her noble father intends her betrothed to be someone far duller.
William Hartwell may be a duke, but he knows he was Charlotte's father's pick, not the young lady's own choice. And the captivating Lady Charlotte does not strike him as a woman who will be wooed by his wealth or title. While she has captured his heart, he has no idea how to win hers in return--and the betrayal and scandal his first wife put him through makes it difficult for him to believe that love can ever be trusted. His only hope is that Charlotte's sense of responsibility will win out over her romantic notions.
Can a widowed duke and a romantically inclined lady negotiate a future and discover a love beyond duty? Will they be able to find healing and hope from the legacy of grace?
Poignant and charming, this is another beautifully written, clean and wholesome Regency romance from Carolyn Miller in the tradition of Georgette Heyer and Julie Klassen. Fans of The Elusive Miss Ellison will meet compelling new characters--and a few old friends.

God bless you,
The Captivating Lady Charlotte by Carolyn Miller is book two in the series Regency Brides A Legacy of Grace. Lady Charlotte Featherington wants to marry for love. Her parents have found their perfect choice for her—a widowed duke with an infant daughter. Charlotte resists being matched with someone who is not her idea of an ideal man.
The duke’s past relationship with his unfaithful wife and his lack of trust in any beautiful young lady causes him to resist Lady Charlotte. However, he finds that he cannot stop thinking about this lovely young lady who has charmed him.
Charlotte imagines herself in love with a dashing young lord, a friend of her brother, but, as she later learns, he is not what he pretends to be. He tries to persuade Charlotte that he is the perfect match for her and even stoops to influencing her choice by any means.
The journey of Charlotte and the duke to a promising future together must overcome distrust, mysterious happenings, and danger. I recommend this enjoyable Regency romance that I received through TBCN in exchange for an honest review.
