Before the Season Ends
Written by Linore Rose Burkard
About the Book…
England, 1813: Romantic woes at home send Ariana Forsythe to her Aunt Bentley’s town house in the fashionable Mayfair district of London. There she finds worse troubles than those that prompted her flight from home. Under her aunt’s watchful eye, Ariana is soon steeped in high society–and at odds with Mr. Phillip Mornay, London’s current darling rogue.
Then, unexpectedly, rumour of a scandal changes Ariana forever. Her faith and her future are at stake in an unexpected adventure that gains even the Prince Regent’s attention.
Will Ariana’s faith survive this test? And what about her heart? For it is Ariana’s heart that most threatens to betray the truths she has always believed in. When she finds herself backed against a wall, betrothed to a man who cannot share her faith, how can it ever turn out right?

Thanks for having me and my book here. If you get ten different people to comment, I’ll give away a free book to one of the commenters!
I have never read this author before however I will read this book. I am a fan of Jane Austen and period books, the Christian aspect adds to my interest. I look forward to reading it.
Jessica, This book sounds amazing! I will be at Barnes & Noble’s door when they open tomorrow at 9am! Ariana sounds like someone with whom I could identify. As an English teacher, I love the idea of the genre that this book represents. Also, I love the idea of blending Christian ideas with real life experiences that are positive. I can see now that I am going to ravish this book this weekend. I’ll let you know on Monday! Thanks for the excellent review!

Wow. It sounds fantastic. A darling rogue and high society. Its hard to go wrong with that combo. I have added this to my “to read” list.
Even if the description had not interested me, the cover would have … all in all, sounds like a good book.
While I have not previously read a historical romance with a Christian perspective, it sounds like an interesting read. I will have to add it to my list of books to purchase in the near future.
This is a new author for me but it is my kind of book. I will read and I’m sure it will be a hit for me and many others. Keep up the good work.
