About the Book

Will a damaged reputation and desire for society's approval thwart the legacy of grace?
Tainted by scandal and forced to leave London for the quieter Brighton countryside, the Honorable Miss Clara DeLancey is a shadow of her former society self. She's lost the man she loved to another and, in a culture that has no patience for self-pity, is struggling with depression. A chance encounter brings her a healing friendship with the sisters of an injured naval captain. But Clara's society mama is appalled at the new company she's keeping.
Captain Benjamin Kemsley is not looking for a wife. But his gallant spirit won't let him ignore the penniless viscount's daughter--not when she so obviously needs assistance to keep moving forward from day to day. Can he protect his heart and still keep her safe?
When they're pushed into the highest echelons of society at the Prince Regent's Brighton Pavilion, this mismatched couple must decide if family honor is more important than their hopes. Can they right the wrongs of the past and find future happiness together--without finances, family support, or royal favor?

My Review
4 STARS!!!
If you have read the two previous books, you will be familiar with Clara. She made a mess of things for a certain couple, completely embarrassing herself, and is now ostracized from ‘the ton’. Of course, her mother was mostly to blame for her poor behavior. Now Clara is feeling desperate, lost, and unlovable, and so chooses a drastic measure. Fortuitously, Ben comes to her rescue and is somewhat bewitched by the soulful creature he saves. 

I enjoyed the story even though it was a slow start for me. It took a few chapters to become invested enough to want to continue on and see if Clara could regain her honorable standing in society and how that magnificent feat would be accomplished. Ben is a kind and noble man dealing with his own demons from the past. 

The Dishonorable Miss DeLancey is full of intrigue, betrayal, jealousy, friendship, and love. With superb themes of grace and forgiveness, Miller brings the characters through emotionally trying circumstances to a realization that their pasts can be forgiven and there is a future filled with hope because of Christ. 

If you are a fan of Regency or historical fiction with a solid faith theme, you will enjoy this offering from Miller who has a firm grasp on the era and presents it in fashion. I am quite happy to say there is another series coming in 2018 with more Regency Brides!

  2. Hi Anne! I really admire your support for authors, and it looks like these are two wonderful books! Having a review first is a must for me, there are so many books out there and so little time. It's good to have an unbiased view of the manuscript. Thank you!

    1. Thank you for stopping by, Ceil. I don't do as much promo as I used to (the whole time thing) but this is one series I highly recommend for historical fiction readers. It helps that the Regency is my favorite era. :-)

    1. Hey Kitty, I'm sorry you missed it too! Do you enjoy Regency stories? If so, I can recommend another series and I just might have a book to loan you through Kindle, if you do. Let me know!
      I adore seeing all the teacups exchanged! Hope to participate next year. This year just didn't work out.
