An Uncommon Courtship by Kristi Ann Hunter

an-uncommon-courtship-book-cover

Lord Trent Hawthorne is thrilled to be able to marry for love, like his two sisters and his parents did before him. But when a compromising situation forces him to suddenly marry the quiet and meek Lady Adelaide Bell, he is unsure if love is truly possible for him. Determined to make the best of his circumstances, he decides to do something rather unique and court his own wife. As the pressures of London culture and the expectations of the social elite build and cause a drift in their tremulous relationship, Trent and Adelaide must rely on the things they are learning about each other and the growing feelings of their hearts.

I really enjoyed the characters of Trent and Adelaide. They are both unique and quirky and their insecurities and interactions are endearing. I did think the novel moved a little slow in the middle of the storyline and I did hope for a more engaging plot, but nonetheless, the overall story is enjoyable. It was also fun to catch up with a few characters from the first two novels, although reading the stories in order is not required. I did not think the characters in this particular novel developed quite as well or quite as deeply. However, I did think it was a pleasant novel and a worthy read. I recommend this to lovers of historical fiction!

I received a copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
