A Regency Rendezvous Romance

In the game of hearts, love knows no social boundaries.

Eight years after she was sent to live with her aunt and uncle in Kent, Henrietta Katherine Graham, the daughter of the stablemaster for the Marquess of Ravenwood, returns to Garring Manor, older, wiser, and more beautiful than ever. Harboring an attachment for the second son, she looks forward to a sweet reunion and is thrilled when her beau resumes their relationship, without hesitation, and proposes marriage, but her father opposes the match, due to what he refers to as her low birth. Will Henrietta defy her father and societal dictates to follow her heart?

Lord Ernest Cornelius Frederick Howe values society’s good opinion, but he is shunned after a failed attempt to seize the marquessate in his brother’s absence. When he retires to the family estate, he is shocked to find his childhood sweetheart in residence, and nothing can stop him from renewing their acquaintance. Determined to win his ladylove, he devises a scheme to redefine Henrietta as something she is not, to protect his future wife and satisfy the whims of the ton, but he risks losing his bride, in the process. Will Ernest flout society to claim the woman he loves?

My thoughts:

The Stablemaster’s Daughter (Regency Rendezvous Book 10) by Barbara Devin is a delightful love story that transcends social classes, a stablemaster’s daughter and the second son of the
Marquess of Ravenwood. It can be read as a stand alone.
This is the journey of Henrietta Katherine Graham and Lord Ernest Cornelius Frederick Howe. And what a journey to fulfill their childhood love as just mere children, an eight separation and a happy reunion. While you can’t call this story a second chance story, it really is, their love went from a childhood love to an adult love. Fantastic!

A quick read to me, with endearing and engaging cast of characters. I did not feel I missed anything nor did it feel rushed. I enjoyed the plot, which seemed effortlessly written, was very interesting and steady paced. Henrietta and Ernest’s story will definitely capture your heart. With the help of family and friends they are determined to prove that a stablemaster’s daughter and a Lord can make a powerful and compelling couple.

Ms. Devlin writes a story of romance, love, devotion, secrets, abuse by a parent, passion, healing, and is infused with acceptance from the ton and finding a HEA that will certainly have you holding your breath, as Henrietta and Ernest find their place in society. I absolutely loved “The Stablemaster’s Daughter” story. A page turner, that came full circle!

“The Regency Rendezvous” series is proving to be a fantastic series. Well done, Ms. Devlin!
