Book Review: A Mother for His Family

8 Jul

Lady Helena Stanhope’s reputation is in tatters…and she’s lost any hope for a “respectable” tonmarriage. An arranged union is the only solution. But once Helena weds formidable Scottish widower John Gordon, Lord Ardoch, and encounters his four mischievous children, she’s determined to help her new, ever-surprising family. Even if she’s sure love is too much to ask for.

All John needs is someone to mother his admittedly unruly brood. He never imagined that beautiful Lady Helena would be a woman of irresistible spirit, caring and warmth. Or that facing down their pasts would give them so much in common. Now, as danger threatens, John will do whatever it takes to convince Helena their future together — and his love — are for always.

My Impressions:

A marriage of convenience starts off the Regency romance, A Mother for His Family. While there are many obstacles for the two main characters Lady Helena and Lord John — blackmail, defiant children, past abuse, and prior promises — true love wins out. Most importantly, the love God shows His children. Lady Helena has never known love before her entrance into her new family. She especially did not know that the love God showers down is something no one can ever earn, but is a gracious gift. Besides the strong faith message, the author has created engaging characters, including some adorable children. New ideas that came about in the time period are also realistically and thoughtfully developed. And there is a bit of intrigue along the way. This quick read really has it all.

So if you want a sweet and touching happily-ever-after, A Mother for His Family is a great choice. Perfect to tuck in your beach or pool bag!
