Years ago, the man who stole Catherine Winthrop’s heart rejected her—and she’s never recovered from the grief. Now tragedy has brought him back into her life. This time it isn’t her heart he’s taking, it’s her home and her family’s good name.
Jonathan Carlew’s serious demeanor and connection to trade, not to mention the rumors surrounding his birth, have kept him from being a favorite of the ladies, or their parents. Now, suddenly landed and titled, he finds himself with plenty of prospects. But his demanding society responsibilities keep pressing him into service to the one woman who captured his heart long ago—and then ran off with it.
These two broken hearts must decide whether their painful past and bitter present will be all they can share, or if forgiveness can provide a path to freedom for the future.
Set in the sumptuous salons of Bath, Regency England’s royal breeding ground for gossip, Winning Miss Winthrop is the first volume in the Regency Brides: A Promise of Hope series. Fans of the wholesome and richly drawn first series won’t want to miss this new set of characters—or appearances by their old favorites.
I read Carolyn’s series before this one and loved it. So I couldn’t wait to read this book.
Wow. I think I was drawn into this story more quickly than any other one I have read by her. The characters we fast endeared themselves to me, or irritated me, depending on the character.
You will be swept away into the story of Catherine and Jonathan. It’s funny because for about the first quarter of the book I don’t think they even really spoke to each other and we don’t find out what happen between them for much longer than that.
I highly recommend this one for regency romance lovers, you will not be disappointed in Carolyn’s latest installment.

Great review, Melissa!
Regency Romance is so sigh-worthy. This sounds like a Jane Austen fan’s dream.
Carolyn’s book remind me very much of Jane Austen 🙂
