Synopsis:

Grace-by-the-Sea: Where romance and adventure come home.
The magistrate over a little Regency coastal village, James Howland, takes pride in protecting Grace-by-the-Sea from ne’er-do-wells, including his distant cousin, the Earl of Howland. So, when he discovers a young lady hiding in the family’s castle, his heart cannot decide which comes first—her rescue or his duty.
Outspoken Eva Faraday has been exiled to the castle for refusing to marry the man the earl picked for her. Her late father appointed the earl trustee over her considerable inheritance, which she cannot access until she turns twenty-five or marries. And if she marries, her husband controls the money. She’s not about to trust any Howland, but James seems ripe for rebellion. To thwart the earl’s power, the two agree to a marriage of convenience, only to discover there are others intent on using the earl’s castle for nefarious purposes. Eva and James must work together to solve the mystery and stop the earl once and for all so they can make a marriage that is far more than convenient.
This sweet, clean Regency romance is the sequel to The Matchmaker’s Rogue.

I would like to thank Regina Scott for giving me a copy of this book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.

Regina Scott’s books make me happy! I can always count on her to provide a story that is witty, adventurous, and sweetly romantic.

James Howland was introduced in The Matchmaker’s Rogue, the first book in the Grace-by-the-Sea series. I love how we get to see a different side of him now. This son of the second son of the earl (in other words, a nobody), had been magistrate of the village and overseer of the earl’s affairs since the death of his own father. And had pretty much always played by the rules. Or so we were led to believe.

When James discovered Eva at the castle, the way he handled affairs not only to protect the earl’s property but the propriety as well was so sweet! Bringing in Maudie, the loveable, eccentric aunt who sees fairies, trolls, and mermaids, as a chaperone made things just perfect!

As the two tried to solve the mystery of the stranger sneaking into the castle at night and attempted to foil the earl’s nefarious plans, things continued to get more interesting.

I would hate to say too much and potentially spoil the story for you, so let me simply encourage you to grab both books in the Grace-by-the-Sea series and read them right away!

About Regina Scott

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first novel until she had learned a bit more about writing. Since her first Regency romance was published in 1998, her stories have traveled the globe, with translations in many languages including Dutch, German, Italian, and Portuguese. She and her husband of 30 years reside in Washington State on the way to Mt. Rainier. Regina Scott is a decent fencer; owns a historical costume collection that takes up over a third of her large closet; and has driven four in hand, learned to fence, sailed on a tall ship, and dressed as a Regency dandy, all in the name of research, of course.
