Lady Edith’s Lonely Heart
About the Book:
A dashing tale of romance from a bestselling author of Regency Romance.
She is under pressure to find a husband she doesn’t want.
He keeps to the fringes of society because of family constraints.
Will the written word be enough to bring two lost souls together?
Lady Edith Longdon is an heiress, in danger of being classed a spinster, and disillusioned with the fops, dandies, and fortune hunters surrounding her in society. Deciding it’s time to take her future into her own hands, she devises a foolproof way of finding someone she can love. She’s convinced nothing could go wrong…
Lord Ralph Pensby, overwhelmed by a sense of obligation, and with no one he can turn to, is adrift from those around him…
Two people drawn together, both on a journey which will affect them in ways they could never have foreseen. Secret correspondence, mistrust and confusion, not to mention cads of the highest order, make this novel a fast-paced, heart-warming story, with appealing characters and a strong sense of time and place.
Perfect for lovers of all things Regency.
I had so much fun reading this sweet, traditional regency romance by Audrey Harrison! I’ve never read anything by Harrison before, but I couldn’t put this book down and I can’t wait to read the next one.
I love reading indiebooks, because I always get so excited when I find new authors. Clean regency romance is one of my guilty pleasures, and I was so pleased at Harrison’s unique twist on the genre. The premise of the book is a clever one: can two people fall in love through words? When Lady Edith places an advertisement in the Lonely Hearts section of the paper, she had no idea it was going to bring her into with the future love-of-her-life, Lord Ralph Pensby.
The course of true love ne’er did run smooth, and there are plenty of misunderstandings and communication problems to keep the couple apart. The book is full of carriage rides, pretty dresses, and dancing; but it also includes many fun and exciting close calls, such as an attempted kidnapping, dangerous thieves, and the threat of an asylum. I read a lot of regency romances, and I can say that this was the most exciting one I’ve read so far this year. If you’re a fan of regency romance with thoroughly modern heroines, you’ll love Lady Edith’s Lonely Heart as much as I did.

About the Author, Audrey Harrison
Audrey Harrison was an AMAZON-UK KINDLE STORYTELLER COMPETITION FINALIST 2018!
Audrey was born about two hundred years too late. She wants to belong to a time when men were men and women were dressed in gowns and could float, simper and sigh.
In the real world she has always longed to write, writing a full manuscript when she was fourteen years old. Work, marriage and children got in the way as they do and it was only when an event at work landed her in hospital that she decided to take stock. One Voluntary Redundancy later, she found that the words and characters came to the forefront and the writing began in earnest.
So, although at home more these days, the housework is still neglected and meals are still late on the table, but she has an understanding family, who usually shake their heads at her and sigh. That is a sign of understanding, isn’t it?
