Lady Helen Finds Her Song is one of the best Regency novels that I’ve read in a long time. I found the story, fascinating, heart-warming, and superbly written.
Twenty-year-old Lady Helen did not concern herself about leaving the comforts of her London home. She was too mesmerized and elated about exploring a new land and was thrilled to be traveling the seas to India with her mother and step-father, Brigadier-General Jim Stackhouse.
Lady Helen was a reserved and kind-hearted woman who was much prettier than she thought she was. She would often chastise herself for her inability to feel comfortable around men, especially a swoon-worthy man like, Lieutenant Arthur Bancroft.
Captain Michael Rhodes had convinced himself that Lady Helen was beyond his reach. He was ten years her senior and half the man that he used to be. But, that didn’t stop him from thinking and worrying about her constantly. Lady Helen loved when the Captain would teach her about India, and the Captain treasured every moment that he got to spend in her presence.
One evening when Lady Helen was trapped and petrified in a jungle, she felt strong arms lift her onto a horse. She knew without looking at him, who it was. She buried herself into the chest of her hero. The man who always seemed to be there for her. The man she loved.
Jennifer Moore transports her readers into the world of her characters, with her engaging and razor sharp writing. This book is not just a romance; it’s an adventure with well-developed characters, realistic dialogue and a compelling plot. I was completely engrossed in this riveting novel, from the very first page and stayed up half the night to finish it. I highly recommend giving Lady Helen Finds Her Song, a read.
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
