Review: Audra by Amanda L.V. Shalaby

Audra by Amanda L.V. Shalaby

Audra Kingsley, a wealthy heiress, may not have seen much of the world, but she knows exactly how she wants her future to play out—and a coming out ball held at her country estate, Kingsley Manor, would suit her just fine. Her father’s wish that she be presented at St. James in London seems silly since she is to marry her neighbor and childhood sweetheart, Lord Crispin Brighton, but she obliges him.

Audra travels to London with her patroness, the eccentric Lady Sutherland, intending to return home as soon as she has curtseyed to the Queen. Unknown to her, Lady Sutherland is in no rush to leave London before the Season is over and intends to show Audra she has more options in the suitor department than Lord Crispin, a second son.

Audra finds herself surrounded by few friends and is forced to attend parties, balls, and operas—all while becoming the object of a secret admirer’s obsession. As Audra struggles to make her way home to her beloved, plans to compromise her into an unwanted marriage are underway.

My Thoughts:
They have waited four long years, but Audra and Crispin are finally ready to be married. All she has to do is take a trip to London so she can officially be out in society. She knows her mind, she just wants to get on with it already. But her sponsor has other plans. Audra is such a fun character. She is not happy at being kept away from Crispin and isn't afraid to let people know about it. I loved this as much as I loved Rhianna. Both books stand alone, but it is in Rhianna that Audra and Crispin first get together, though they are too young. I recommend both books if you love sweet historical romances.

My Rating: *****
