Engagement of Convenience~A Romance Novel

I always enjoy a good romance novel, so when I was given the opportunity to read a new book by Georgie Lee, I JUMPED at the chance.  Her new book, Engagement of Convenience grabbed me from the beginning.  There was a good balance of romance and story.  

The main characters are Julia Howard and Captain James Covington.  I loved reading about Julia's wanting to be an independent woman in a time when that was not possible.  It made me so proud to be a woman who does have rights these days, to own land for one.  Right away, you get to see how powerful it is (and was) to be a woman.  First impressions, it's amazing how they shape your opinion of someone, even in a book.

I find this review harder to write then I thought because I don't want to giveaway any of the book!

Engagement of Convenience by Georgie Lee

Julia Howard longs for the freedom her inheritance will bring her—but with her controlling brother holding the purse strings, she's going to need a most convenient engagement… An encounter in the woods with a dashing stranger couldn't be more timely. 

Wounded, his life at sea at an end, Captain James Covington isn't prepared for the dull ache of civilian life. He sees in Julia a fellow adventurous spirit—willing to risk all. Could agreeing to her outrageous proposal help him recapture a reason to live as they face the biggest adventure of all—marriage?

Does this sound intriguing to you?  You can buy it from Amazon for $5.85 (Paperback) or Barnes & Noble.

Hero’s Redemption by Georgie Lee

London, 1817

Devon, the Earl of Malton, is a hero for his deeds at the Battle of Waterloo. But he suffers terrible nightmares, and drinks himself to sleep most nights. A habit he vows to break when he awakes one morning to find a woman sharing his bed, no memory of how she got there, and her angry brother at his door.

Cathleen is mortified when her wastrel brother and his greedy wife propose a blackmail scheme involving the earl, but as a penniless war widow she's at their mercy. She goes along with the plan and sneaks into Devon's bed one night, and ends up comforting him through a night terror.

Charmed by her beauty and kindness, Devon determines that rather than pay the blackmail, he will offer his hand in marriage to Cathleen. Although she is deeply attracted to the stoic earl, Cathleen cannot understand why Devon would want to marry her. What she doesn't know is that Devon owes her a debt that can never fully be repaid…
