[Book Tour] Audra by Amanda L.V. Shalaby #review #giveaway



Audra
by Amanda L.V. Shalaby

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Audra Kingsley, a wealthy heiress, may not have seen much of the world, but she knows exactly how she wants her future to play out - and a coming out ball held at her country estate, Kingsley Manor, would suit her just fine. Her father’s wish that she be presented at St. James in London seems silly since she is to marry her neighbor and childhood sweetheart, Lord Crispin Brighton, but she obliges him.

Audra travels to London with her patroness, the eccentric Lady Sutherland, intending to return home as soon as she has curtseyed to the Queen. Unknown to her, Lady Sutherland is in no rush to leave London before the Season is over and intends to show Audra she has more options in the suitor department than Lord Crispin, a second son.

Audra finds herself surrounded by few friends and is forced to attend parties, balls, and operas - all while becoming the object of a secret admirer’s obsession. As Audra struggles to make her way home to her beloved, plans to compromise her into an unwanted marriage are underway.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Audra shut the door to her bedroom with the intention of making her way to the ivory-and-gold secretary to write a letter to Lady Brighton of the day’s events. As she walked and began to remove her gloves, a letter addressed to “Lady Audra Kingsley” fluttered to the oriental rug, stopping her in her tracks. She had forgotten all about its appearance at St. James, and how she had hidden it. She hardly knew why she hid it, except that its mysterious nature seemed to require that she do so.

Audra lifted her skirts to kneel beside it and held it over her lap. She wasted no time in opening it now, and read the following words:

Dear Lady Audra,

It was an unfathomable privilege to rest my eyes upon you when you arrived in St. James Square today. You are a heavenly creature, and you cannot imagine my happiness in discovering you may be at Almack’s, as will I. I look forward to the time when I am blessed with the indulgence of seeing you again. Until then —

I am & co,

Your Secret Admirer
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~


What a lovely book! I don't read a lot of historical, but this book automatically caught my attention. There's something about sweet love that pulls at my heart. Audra is no disappointment. She's a fiesty young lady who must announce herself to society before she can become engaged, even though she's basically been engaged for four years with Crispin. Their's is a true love and that's what got me. They REALLY loved each other. I was routing for them throughout the novel, waiting for them to finally come together -- because that's what they both wanted. Despite all the turmoil surrounding Audra's coming out, they do end up together in such a sweet way. The ending is my favorite part -- Crispin the true hero. I don't want to give too  much away, so I will end my review with this: If you enjoy sweet true love, with twists and turns and even murder, read Audra! 

4 Winks!
