Margaretta Fortescue desperately needs to disappear from London society, and her only hope is to follow the rumors of another young woman who recently made a life for herself away from the glare of society. Her search leads her to the market town of Marlborough where, in spite of her efforts to avoid attention, she can't seem to elude local solicitor Nash Banfield.
All Nash wants is a quiet, sedate life--no risks or surprises. When Margaretta, clearly on the run and unwilling to answer questions, interrupts his solitude, his curiosity and his principles won't let him leave this determined woman without assistance.
But will discovering the truth about Margaretta make him think twice about finally taking a risk on love?
A Search for Refuge is an e-only novella that gives an exciting introduction to Kristi Ann Hunter's new Regency historical romance series, Haven Manor! Includes an extended excerpt of the first full-length novel in the series, A Defense of Honor.
Regency is my favorite genre. Kristi Ann is my favorite modern author. (Marion Chesney my favorite deceased one.) I really appreciate the Christian message that she wraps into superbly compelling stories.
There is a great fraud, being perpetrated by women, Regency authors that sex with a difficult man will lead to love. It is terrible.
It is literally a Godsend to have an author like Kristi Ann.
My favorite books of hers are the Hawthorne series, Winning the Gentleman, and Vying for the Viscount.
I really like to read a story about Aaron’s half brother in which the author further explore healing for both brothers.
My favorite stories are the ones that have characters from prior books involved in the plot and growing in depth.
Please also share tips on your writing process. We need more good authors out there.
A wonderful introduction to a new historical romance series!
I love the main characters in this novella. Margaretta and Nash are extremely well developed. They are each dealing with very real emotional issues.
I love the fact that they have both found a true friend in Mrs. Lancaster. She is the stalwart support and encouragement that everyone needs when they are going through intensely difficult times.
I’m looking forward to reading the rest of this series.
