Years ago, the man who stole Catherine Winthrop’s heart rejected her—and she’s never recovered from the grief. Now tragedy has brought him back into her life. This time it isn’t her heart he’s taking, it’s her home and her family’s good name.
Jonathan Carlew’s serious demeanor and connection to trade, not to mention the rumors surrounding his birth, have kept him from being a favorite of the ladies, or their parents. Now, suddenly landed and titled, he finds himself with plenty of prospects. But his demanding society responsibilities keep pressing him into service to the one woman who captured his heart long ago—and then ran off with it.
These two broken hearts must decide whether their painful past and bitter present will be all they can share, or if forgiveness can provide a path to freedom for the future.
Set in the sumptuous salons of Bath, Regency England’s royal breeding ground for gossip, Winning Miss Winthrop is the first volume in the Regency Brides: A Promise of Hope series. Fans of the wholesome and richly drawn first series won’t want to miss this new set of characters—or appearances by their old favorites.
“With exquisite dialogue, beautiful descriptions, and careful attention to detail, Carolyn Miller continues to draw her readers into a magnificent Regency world with her newest novel, Winning Miss Winthrop. I cannot help but compare the longing of two hearts separated by misunderstandings to Jane Austen’s Persuasion. Miller creates a world with such clarity that the plights of Catherine and Jonathan grip the reader with compassion and uncertainty until the very end. And the sweetness? Yes, the romantic tension pings with unrequited love which still simmers beneath the surface of two wounded hearts. Well done, Carolyn Miller. Winning Miss Winthrop is a beautiful journey of healing, hope, and forgiveness.”
—Pepper D. Basham, author of the Penned in Time and the Mitchell’s Crossroads series
