Romancing Daphne By Sarah M. Eden #Review
by Sarah M. Eden
As her first London Season looms before her, the thought of the impending social whirl fills Daphne Lancaster's timid heart with dread. She hasn't her sister's beauty nor their talent for conversing easily. Even her family's enviable connections may not be enough to prevent disaster.
But Daphne's misery turns to surprise delight when the first event of her Season brings an unexpected visitor to her door—James Tilburn, whose tender kindness stole her heart in her youth. When the handsome young gentleman expresses his desire to court her, Daphne is elated. Their feelings for each other quickly grow, and it appears that, much to Daphne s disbelief, her happily ever after is within reach.
Yet nothing is as it seems. The couple finds themselves caught in a tangled web of greed and deceit, leaving James and Daphne to determine whether they are willing to risk everything for true love.
I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- This book is going to be a huge hit in the world of old fashioned romance with a twist. The kind of book that includes you as a reader into a time and setting that depending on your age you will either really love or get lost in. The actual character build up and strengths as far as playing a huge part in the stories are not as pronounced, but the details are there. I would say this book is for the reader that indulges in the genre.
