Blog Tour and Giveaway: Midnight's Budding Morrow by Carolyn Miller

About the Book

Can real love grow between a wallflower and an unrepentant rogue?

Sarah Drayton is eager to spend time with her best friend at her crumbling Northumberland castle estate. Matrimony is the last thing on her mind and the last thing she expects to be faced with on a holiday. Yet she finds herself being inveigled into a marriage of convenience with her friend's rakish brother.

When James Langley returns to his family's estate, he can't be bothered to pay attention to his responsibilities as the heir. War is raging and he wants only distraction, not serious tethers. But his roguish ways have backed him into a corner, and he has little choice but to obey his father's stunning decree: marry before returning to war, or else. Suddenly he finds himself wedded to a clever and capable woman he does not love.

Sarah craves love and a place to belong, neither of which James offered before returning to the battlefront. Now everyone around her thinks she married above her station, and they have no intention of rewarding her for such impertinence. It isn't until her husband returns from war seemingly changed that she begins to hope they may find real happiness. But can she trust that this rake has truly reformed?

When tragedy strikes, this pair must learn to trust God and his plans. Will they be destroyed . . . or will they discover that even in the darkest depths of night, the morning still holds hope?

About the Series

While most stories set in Regency England focus on the rich, the young, and the beautiful, award-winning author Carolyn Miller decided she wanted to give readers something different for a change. Her new Regency Wallflowers series follows the commoners, away from the hustle and bustle of 1810s London, out in the Lake District of England. She tells the stories of women who are slightly older and have few prospects for marriage, women who might be considered “wallflowers.”

Midnight’s Budding Morrow is the second book in the Regency Wallflowers series. The first book in the series is Dusk’s Darkest Shores

My Review

I adored the first book from Carolyn Miller’s Regency Wallflowers series, Dusk's Darkest Shores. I jumped at the chance to read the second installment, Midnight's Budding Morrow. I was far from being disappointed. I found James and Sarah’s to be a beautiful story of love and hope. I do have to admit that I was not sure about James at first but he quickly grew on me. I thought it was great way to spend a quiet afternoon. 

I am giving Midnight's Budding Morrow a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy reading clean historical romance. I am eagerly waiting for book three from the Regency Wallflowers series, Dawn's Untrodden Green. I can not wait to see what happens next. 

I received a paperback copy of Midnight's Budding Morrow from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
