Waiting on Wednesday (21)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that was created by Breaking the Spine to spotlight a blogger's eagerly anticipated new books.

For this Waiting on Wednesday, I picked Blackmoore: A Proper Romance by Julianne Donaldson.

Release Date: Sept. 9, 2013

Book Summary: (from Goodreads) "Kate Worthington knows her heart and she knows she will never marry. Her plan is to travel to India instead—if only to find peace for her restless spirit and to escape the family she abhors. But Kate’s meddlesome mother has other plans. She makes a bargain with Kate: India, yes, but only after Kate has secured—and rejected—three marriage proposals.

Kate journeys to the stately manor of Blackmoore determined to fulfill her end of the bargain and enlists the help of her dearest childhood friend, Henry Delafield. But when it comes to matters of love, bargains are meaningless and plans are changeable. There on the wild lands of Blackmoore, Kate must face the truth that has kept her heart captive. Will the proposal she is determined to reject actually be the one thing that will set her heart free?

Set in Northern England in 1820, Blackmoore is a Regency romance that tells the story of a young woman struggling to learn how to follow her heart. It is Wuthering Heights meets Little Women with a delicious must-read twist."

My Thoughts: I first learned about Julianne Donaldson during Goodreads' 2012 Choice Awards. I was a little surprised that, with such good ratings and reviews, I hadn't come cross her debut novel "Edenbrooke" on my own. Afterwards, I bought a copy of Edenbrooke and was not disappointed by the hype. In Edenbrooke, Julianne Donaldson created one of the hottest clean romances I have ever read. The tension between her hero and heroine was amazing to me, even though there's next to no touching, kisses, etc. After such an amazing debut, I really feel she's an author to watch. I have eagerly been checking in to her Goodreads author page from time to time, and finally, I am excited to have a release date for her next novel. As a big fan of both Little Women and Wuthering Heights, this book will be one of my most anticipated reads of 2013. If it's half as romantic as Edenbrooke, it will be awesome.
