Linore Burkard’s fans devoured her first two Regency novels Before the Season Ends and The House in Grosvenor Square. Now, as her third novel opens, the year is 1818 and Miss Beatrice Forsythe is determined to marry well. After all, her sister, Ariana, married The Paragon, Mr. Phillip Mornay, five years earlier–which all but guarantees that she, Beatrice, can also make a famous match to a wealthy man.

But her sister and husband have disappeared from high society as they raise a family at their country estate. Can Beatrice persuade them to chaperone her in London? And what about Beatrice’s business with the curate, Mr. O – Brien, whom she rashly promised to marry years earlier. At seventeen now, she has no wish to marry a mere clergyman – despite his agreeable countenance and gentle, understanding ways.

When Mr. Tristan Barton becomes the tenant of the Manor House, Beatrice’s hopes seem to have found their object. But when Ariana falls gravely ill, secrets come to light, motives are revealed, and the pretenses that are easy to keep up in the darkness begin to crumble. Hearts are bared, truths uncovered, and when all is said and done, a country house courtship like no other has occurred!

As always, Linore Burkard delivers ‘spirited romance for the Jane Austen soul.?


THE COUNTRY HOUSE COURTSHIP by Linore Rose Burkard is a wonderful, delightful Inspirational Regency Romance. The story is well written in depth and detail.  It is the third in the series but can be read as a stand alone. The story is captivating, romantic, inspirational, fast paced, page turning and if you are a Jane Austin fan you will love this one. The characters are charming, lovable, and will transport you to the Regency era.  This is a wonder, delightful story of love, family, faith you will  not want to put the book down. I would highly recommend and if you haven’t read Before The Season Ends and The House In Grosvenor Square, get then you won’t regret reading them.
