Product Description

Friendship…

Lady Theodora Montgomery departed Miss Emmeline’s School of Education and Decorum for Ladies of Outstanding Quality to attend her first London Season—her three dearest friends by her side. With her sharp wit and skill on the archery field, Theo is far more interested in winning a large purse prize than securing a husband. But when she is unmasked on the tourney grounds, her face exposed to all, she fears her identity and days spent gallivanting around London will cause not only her undoing, but the downfall of her friends as well.

Loyalty…

Mr. Alistair Price, heir to the elderly Viscount Melton, arrived in London with his eight younger siblings in tow. He is charged with keeping his family name above reproach until the Season starts and his sister, Miss Adeline Price, is presented to society—though that proves far more difficult than Alistair ever expected when he discovers his rebellious sister climbing down the side of their townhouse and scurrying off to Whitechapel for an archery tournament. His focus remains on saving his family from the certain ruin and disgrace Adeline’s actions invited—until Alistair catches sight of another female archer, her arrow connecting with far more than the center of her target.

And honor above all…

With Theodora’s future—and that of her friends—in jeopardy, will she agree to a marriage devoid of affection, or risk everything for the man who won her heart?

Lady Georgina makes the perfect financier. The forgotten daughter of a wealthy duke, she seeks to belong to something—or someone—by any means necessary.

MY THOUGHTS 

Theodora (Lady Archer’s Creed Book 1) by Christina McKnight is a humorous romp through the Regency era of England.
Four friends formed a childhood bond through their school years that continues through their first season in London. Their mantra is friendship, loyalty and honor above all, but will their mantra carry them through the challenges of life into adulthood? Or will the challenges of adulthood leave their mantra behind as they face unforeseen obstacles?
Their love of archery brings these four young girls together, Theodora aka Theo, Georgina aka Georgie, Adeline and Josephine aka Josie, to form “The Lady Archer’s Creed”. Through their love of the sport of Archery, they solidify their unbreakable bond, and each Lady brings a unique quality that adds to their unbreakable friendship.
First up in what promises to be an amazing four book series is….
Lady Theodora Montgomery….

This is the story of Theodora and Mr. Alistair Price, who is heir to the elderly Viscount Melton. He brings his eight siblings to London, one of which is his sister, the rebellious Adeline. Who is alsi one of the Lady Archer’s Creed.
While the friendship of these four young ladies are more important than ever, will they be able to continue their mantra of friendship, loyalty are honor throughout their adulthood? Will love and desperation destroy all they hold dear? Will they be able to find their true love or give their lives to another, who hasn’t gained their heart? This is only a few obstacles they will face.

“Theodora” is a delicious romp through archery contests, the facts of life, growing up, and facing events of the real world, including, possible scandal, finding love and a HEA.

Readers will find an intriguing story of friendships, romance and passion with some twists and turns. Ms. McKnight brings this story to life with her funny antics, her wonderful charactizations, her development of the background of these young ladies and her trueness to Regency London. A wonderful story, indeed! While “Theodora” has passionate kisses, there are no actual love scenes, making this a sweet Regency Romance.
Readers of Regency Romance, sweet romances, forthright young ladies, Lady Archery contests, and deliciously amazing stories, will enjoy Book 1, “Theodora” in this four book series. I certainly did! I think laughter is good for the soul, and must thank Christina McKnight for writing such a wonderful story! I especially needed this at this time in my life. Thank you Christina McKnight! ! A very enjoyable and satisfying read! I look forward to Book 2, “Georgina”, can’t wait to see what she gets into, and her adventures. Well done, indeed!!
