The Dishonorable Miss DeLancey, by Carolyn Miller
Tainted by scandal and forced to leave London for the quieter Brighton countryside, the Honorable Miss Clara DeLancey is a shadow of her former society self. She’s lost the man she loved to another and, in a culture that has no patience for self-pity, is struggling with depression. A chance encounter brings her a healing friendship with the sisters of an injured naval captain. But Clara’s society mama is appalled at the new company she’s keeping.
Captain Benjamin Kemsley is not looking for a wife. But his gallant spirit won’t let him ignore the penniless viscount’s daughter–not when she so obviously needs assistance to keep moving forward from day to day. Can he protect his heart and still keep her safe?
When they’re pushed into the highest echelons of society at the Prince Regent’s Brighton Pavilion, this mismatched couple must decide if family honor is more important than their hopes. Can they right the wrongs of the past and find future happiness together–without finances, family support, or royal favor?
My Thoughts: Like most of my book review The Dishonorable Miss DeLancey was sent to me by the publisher to review. Of course all opinions are my own. I really enjoyed this book! I ended up feeling really invested in the characters and absolutely loved their development! Going through the hope than rejection was a big spin and was so well done! I found it to be a great after work evening read to wind down.
