Marianne Daventry will do anything to escape the boredom of Bath and the amorous attentions of an unwanted suitor. So when an invitation arrives from her twin sister, Cecily, to join her at a sprawling country estate, she jumps at the chance. Thinking she'll be able to relax and enjoy her beloved English countryside while her sister snags the handsome heir of Edenbrooke, Marianne finds that even the best laid plans can go awry. From a terrifying run-in with a highwayman to a seemingly harmless flirtation, Marianne finds herself embroiled in an unexpected adventure filled with enough romance and intrigue to keep her mind racing. Will Marianne be able to rein in her traitorous heart, or will a mysterious stranger sweep her off her feet? Fate had something other than a relaxing summer in mind when it sent Marianne to Edenbrooke.

I loved this book. It's sweet, funny, exciting. The best part is that it's a clean romance. Everything in the story is too good to be true, which is what I wanted to read. If you're a "realist" I don't think this book is for you.

I loved, loved, loved this book! It was one of the best romances I have read in a long time (and I've read several)! It had all of the elements to make it good - jealousy, anger, love, laughter, arrogance, modesty, etc.
Such a good book. I highly recommend it.

This is my favorite book ever, it had mention of god somewhat which I think is good. Also, Marianne and Phillip are so cute and Marianne is feisty. Phillip is awesome he is so corky and funny. The romance just made me melt. I was literally smiling everytime Phillip made Marianne blush.

Honestly this book just melted my heart. I felt so invested in the romance inside of this novel and just love it, I love it, I LOVE IT.

A cute love story. Usually, I'm very picky on how long a couple knows each other before they fall in love but I never had the urge to criticize this book.
I read to around page 20 and wanted to shelve it completely (I thought it was lacking) but figured I should keep going and I'm glad I did. The story's not sexual, very clean. Main character did frustrate me at times because she didn't understand very obvious things.

Loved it. Couldn't put it down once I started. And as soon as I finished I wanted to read it again! A cute, clean, fun, easy read.

Regency is not usually my genre,but totally loved this delightfully romantic,and clean without being religious, Regency Romance.

This is again one of those debut books that convinces me that more often than not,an author's first book is such a labor of love,that it should not be missed.

Amazing skill that put me in the scene,and fantastic character development.

If you love witty verbal sparring/teasing between the romantic leads,as I do,then you will love Edenbrooke with Marianne and Philip.

I don't normally seek out romances in this genre because like the heroine in this story, talk of fabrics and lace bores to to the point of drowsing!Which is what I encountered when I tried to get into Georgette Heyer's books.

Believe me, I was totally captivated by this book,and it is the 'read in one sitting' type of book that I haven't come across in awhile.

Wonderful surprise and very highly recommended,especially for readers like me who appreciate finding a clean read that is free of all the 'god-talk' of Christian/Inspirational fiction.

What a horrible horrible book! The plot was weak, the characters were so poorly written that I was rooting against them, and the writing was horrible. If you want a Regency romance then skip this one and look for Georgette Heyer. I would give this book negative stars if I could.

I went about my normal activities. I ate food and I slept and I spent my days in the company of the other women. But through it all I felt as if an important part of me was absent. Perhaps it was my heart.

‘You spend so much time thinking about other people’s feelings,’ he said quietly. 'I wonder how much thought you give to your own.’
