Book Review: The Audacious Miss Eliza by Laura Rollins

About the Book:

As it turns out, a London Season is the worst place to find love.

Eliza Mulgrave never expected to make her bows to society. Yet here she is, dancing at Almacks and riding through Hyde Park. It would be perfectly delightful if it weren’t for the whispers and scornful glances. She certainly never sought to quit her place in society as a tradesman’s daughter. At least then she had known who she was and how to act; now, she’s completely lost.

Adam Lambert has been raised to be a viscount and though the time has come sooner than expected he is confident stepping into this new life. Until he meets his Father’s best kept secret—a little girl. And now she’s Adam’s responsibility. Surely someone ought to have told him about her before now.

After stumbling through an initial meeting, Adam and Eliza both find in the other what they most need this Season—a sincere friend. But society is not often willing to grant two people room to learn for themselves who to be, or who to love.

As the first stand-alone novel in a new series by author Laura Rollins, The Audacious Miss Eliza begins the Daughters of Courage series. This charming story is a light-hearted, clean and wholesome romance set in the Regency era.

My Thoughts:

The Audacious Miss Eliza by Laura Rollins commences the Daughters of Courage series, introducing several women whose stories are to come, but focusing on Miss Eliza Mulgrave and her relationships. The intriguing sisterly dynamic between Eliza, Dinah (her sister), and Rachel (her cousin) flowed throughout the novel. Furthermore, the novel explored female friendship bonds as Eliza and Augusta end up in a love triangle with Lord Lambert.

Speaking of Lord Lambert, I found myself wanting more interaction between Eliza and Lord Lambert at the start of the book. However, as their friendship budded into romance, my interest increased and, by the middle, I was absorbed into the story. The romantic tension heightened once Lambert determined to win Eliza and I thoroughly enjoyed the moves he made in those romantic moments.

The Audacious Miss Eliza by Laura Rollins is a light, Regency-era romance with themes about being true to yourself and the importance of relationships. Readers who enjoy clean, historical reads that entertain while staying light will likely enjoy this novel.
