About the Book
After a season in London, Charlotte Lyons is still regrettably unattached. With her family’s finances in peril, she is sent away with her sister to a bleak coastal town where she is expected to pursue a wealthy Earl. Beautiful and talented, how could she possibly fail? But when her heart is captured by someone entirely unexpected, Charlotte finds herself caught up in a web of lies and intrigue. Between hardship and sorrow, she finds more than she bargained for, forced to choose between the life she once wanted and a new love she never imagined.
About the Author
Ashtyn Newbold discovered a love of writing early in high school. Inspired by regency period romance, she wrote her first novel at the age of sixteen. Because she can’t vacation in her favorite historical time periods, she writes about them instead. When not crafting handsome historical heroes, she enjoys baking, sewing, music, and spoiling her dog. She dreams of traveling to England and Ireland. Ashtyn is currently studying English and creative writing at Utah Valley University. She lives in Lehi, Utah with her family.

Ashtyn Newbold has written a fresh, new clean regency romance that readers will thoroughly enjoy. At least by the end of the novel. In the beginning readers may think that the characters are dreadful; Charlotte is whiny, annoying, and selfish, while Clara is wimpy and let’s herself get pushed around. But through a series of misfortunes, the girls are thrown into a new circumstance where they must learn to take care of and fend for themselves. This leads them to character building situations where they learn and grow, becoming kind, considerate, self-assured and must learn to be happy with their current state of affairs, becoming characters readers will come to love. Newbold’s well-written story is delightful and original, weaving twists and turns that will delight readers by the book’s end. Readers will not want to put down or miss out on this fabulous story!
