Overview

On the cliffs of 19th-century Cornwall, a spirited, impetuous young woman is torn between the honor of her family and the longing of her heart.

England, 1811

A tarnished reputation. A distant home. A forced engagement to a dangerous man. When Elizabeth Trelawny flees London, she has more than one reason to run. And when her carriage, pursued by her would-be fiance, is caught in a storm, she quickly accepts the help of a dark stranger. Anything to get back to Cornwall.

But Rowan Curnow is not exactly a stranger. He's not quite a gentleman either. Class disparity once kept him from courting Elizabeth . . . even if it didn't keep him from kissing her.

The couple elude their pursuers and reach Bastion Point, Elizabeth's future inheritance and the one place she calls home. But in the very act of spiriting her to safety, Rowan has jeopardized Elizabeth's inheritance--if her grandfather ever learns she spent the night, however innocently, in the company of a man.

When smugglers unite the pair in a reckless, flirtatious alliance--an alliance that both challenges the social norms Elizabeth has been raised to revere and rattles Rowan's fledgling faith in God. Elizabeth must choose between the obedience of a child and the desires of a woman: cling to the safety of her home or follow the man she loves.

Eakes (A Reluctant Courtship) delivers beautifully written romantic suspense set in Cornwall during the Regency era. Heiress Elizabeth Trelawny barely escapes an arranged marriage in London with her life, making her way under the cover of darkness back to her beloved grandparents in Cornwall with the help of a mysterious yet kind young man. The coming weeks find the two of them arguing over family, societal norms, jilted suitors, smugglers, murderers, and their own preconceived notions about God and unconditional love. While aspects of the novel are repetitious, the plot has surprises that add depth and texture to what would have otherwise been a predictable romance. A somewhat precipitous ending neatly concludes most of the story lines, although some unresolved issues are left either as cliffhangers or possible premises of future novels in a themed series. Agent: Tamela Hancock Murray, Steve Laube Agency. (Apr.)
