Rebecca Reviews ~ An Inconvenient Beauty (Hawthorne House #4) by Kristi Ann Hunter

Published September 5th 2017 by Bethany House Publishers

Award-Winning Regency Romance Author on the Rise

Griffith, Duke of Riverton, likes order, logic, and control, and he naturally applies this rational approach to his search for a bride. He's certain Miss Frederica St. Claire is the perfect wife for him, but while Frederica is strangely elusive, he can't seem to stop running into her stunningly beautiful cousin, Miss Isabella Breckenridge.

Isabella should be enjoying her society debut, but with her family in difficult circumstances, her uncle will only help them if she'll use her beauty to assist him in his political aims. Already uncomfortable with this agreement, the more she comes to know Griffith, the more she wishes to be free of her unfortunate obligation.

Will Griffith and Isabella be able to set aside their pride and face their fears in time to find their own happily-ever-after?

Rebecca's Review
4 STARS!!!

"The prospect of being bait hadn't seemed so daunting until she was actually surrounded by the trap with no way out, no way home, and no other way to save her family."

Desperation can drive a young woman to despair; so naturally when the beautiful Isabella Breckenridge entered into an agreement with her uncle, in order to save her nearly destitute family, she never imagined the conundrum that her harmless flirting would create. Caught between who she really is and who her uncle has presented her to be, Isabella catches the unexpected attention of the most eligible bachelor to be found in the country of England, the very Duke of Riverton himself.

"You probably spent all of last year debating the merits of various ladies."

Griffith Hawthorne, Duke of Riverton, applies logic to every decision that he makes, so when he decides that it is time to choose a wife, he considers every angle carefully, much like he is accustomed to doing before any large business transaction. He thought he had it figured out, until the cousin of his intended not only invades his every thought, she seems determined to thwart any notion of courtship with herself or with her cousin; how inconvenient can one woman be? Something curious is going on in the house of Lord Percy Pontebrook.

Witty, romantic, entertaining and inspiring; all attributes of this elegant conclusion to Kristi Ann Hunter's Hawthorne House series.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher. The opinions stated above are entirely my own. 

Rebecca is a graduate of Bryan College with a degree in Christian Education, and is currently serving at the First Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church in Gastonia, North Carolina as the Director of Children's Ministry. With nearly 28 years of experience in her field, she has had many opportunities to use her love of reading and writing in creative ways across the generations. A wife, mother of four "nearly" grown children, and grandmother to four beautiful grandchildren, Rebecca has been able to return to her love of reading and more recently reviewing, with a renewed passion for the "beauty of story".

~Happy Reading, Y'all~
