 About the Book:

 She has nothing left but faith…
With her father’s death, Anna Newfield loses everything—her home, her inheritance, and her future. Her only piece of good fortune is a job offer from wounded major Edmond Grenville, whose mother requires a companion. The Dowager Lady Greystone is controlling and unwelcoming, but Anna can enjoy Edmond’s company, even if she knows the aristocratic war hero can never return her love. Even amid the glittering ballrooms of London, nothing glows brighter for Edmond than Anna’s gentle courage. Loving her means going against his family’s rigid command. Yet how can he walk away when his heart may have found its true companion?

Award-winning Florida author Louise M. Gouge writes historical fiction for Harlequin's Love Inspired imprint. In addition to numerous other awards, Louise is the recipient of the prestigious Inspirational Readers’ Choice Award for her 2005 novel, Hannah Rose. With her great love of history and research, Louise has traveled to several of her locations to ensure the accuracy of her stories’ settings. When she isn't writing, she and her husband love to visit historical sites and museums. Her latest release from Harlequin is The Proper Companion, a Love Inspired Regency novel. Her 2011 novella, The Gentleman Takes a Bride, is a finalist for the prestigious Inspirational Readers Choice Award

Hi Linore! Thanks for the introduction to another fabulous inspirational regency writer. I appreciate you keeping us informed about the good authors/books out there.

I forwarded this to my girlfriend, Debbe, who is an avid reader as well.

Thanks again... and hurry with your next book... going through withdrawals!! LOL

Linore Burkard said...

Got you in the drawing, Pat, thanks for sending to your daughter. And Diane, you're sweet!! Thank you for entering by forwarding to Debbe, and for the sweet words. Wish I could say I'm almost done with another regency, but at least I have a short story coming out in Kindle soon. (Just taking in comments from my beta-readers and making final edits.)
Wish you could all win a book! Hugs.:)

Hey Linore and Louise! Two of my favorite people! I've read Louise's book and must say it was great. I fell in love with the cast and can't wait to see the brother's story in print!
