The Roses of Feldstone is a brand new novel by a brand new author, Esther Hatch. It is a regency romance that is totally worth the read. It is losing sleep worthy as you would rather stay up into the wee hours of the morning just so you can finish reading the book. I loved every moment of this book. The plot was great. The characters were so great that I wanted to hijack the writing of this book to write myself in as a character to slap a certain Lord Telford in the face because he was being so frustratingly kind and mean at the same time.
If you haven’t noticed by now, I really get attached to the characters from the books I love. They feel like real people to me, even though I know they are all make believe. I kinda cried after I finish reading this book, because I didn’t want it to end yet. In other words, I didn’t want to say goodbye to these characters.
This books is probably one that will be well read many times, and that to you should show you that it is worth buying and not just checking it out from the library. But who knows, maybe you’ll think otherwise, but I really don’t think so.
After reading this book, I can’t wait to see what else Esther Hatch can come up with. I hope it’s sooner rather than later.
Standing before Feldstone Manor, site of so many happy memories, Rose Davenport feels nothing but dread. Her family’s annual visit to the stately home was once brightened by her friendship with the earl’s youngest son, William, but everything changed the day his elder brother was disinherited and William became heir to his father’s earldom. From that moment, William made it clear he has no interest in continuing an acquaintance with Rose. Heartbroken, she sets out to prove she will simply not be ignored–or outdone–by the arrogant future lord of the manor.
When his elder brother marries for love, William’s entire life changes in an instant. He does not have the same option to marry whom he chooses, and he must let go of the feelings he has harbored for his dear friend Rose. He steels himself against her annual visits, determined to keep his feelings for her a secret. But when he makes the hasty promise to marry within six months, he never dreams that his actions will lead Rose to impulsively undertake the same challenge.
