Author Spotlight: Heidi Ashworth!


I love to read! My favorite books to read are from the Regency Era (clean books only).  I'm a huge fan of anything Jane Austen; movies, books, history... etc. So I was excited when I came across  Heidi Ashworth's books by looking up books in the Regency Era that I have already read and liked.  For tips on finding the next good book to read via Amazon and books you have already read, view my Tutorial:  HERE



I am definitely a fan of Heidi Ashworth’s writing style. If you like Pride and Prejudice, then you will love her (Miss Delacourt) books. There is a little bit of everything as far as intrigue, romance (the clean kind), and even humor. 



                     


Today I'm giving a review on her most recent book release: 

Lord Haversham Takes Command



This book is the 4th installment of her Miss Delacourt books, but if you have not read the previous books, in no way will you be lost (though I highly recommend them). This is a romantic story between Mira and Harry,  children from the main characters from the previous Miss Delacourt books. 

I laughed out loud at the character that Harry would portray (Bertie) in order to keep his status as a secret service agent under wraps. Everyone who knows him is confused and put out by his role as a dandy wearing too much lace. Even Mira, who hasn’t seen Harry in years is confused and disappointed. Harry is torn between the safety of those around him and loosing the good opinion of Mira and her parents for good. Mira, however, gets glimpses of the Harry she has always known and loved and has enough trust in him and his reasons for playing a dandy. Although there are times her trust is put to the test.

You can’t help but root for Harry and Mira to be together with the well described chemistry that they share. I won’t elaborate on the story anymore so as not to give anything away, however, there was a kissing scene that should go down in history for being the best kiss ever described in a book to make any woman's toes curl. I give mad props to Heidi Ashworth for her writing style and being able to describe a great kiss in the cleanest way. 

This book will make you fall in love with the Regency Era and make you want to buy the previous Miss Delacourt books just to know the history of some of the key characters. Thank you Heidi for a very entertaining read! I can’t wait to see what you come up with next!
