Lady Georgina Hawthorne has been planning her debut season for years. Her one goal – become the star of the season and marry well. Everything should go perfectly, as long as she can continue to keep her shameful secret.
But hidden things have a way of coming out. How far is Lady Georgina willing to go to keep her’s under wraps? And what will she do when the one man she wants nothing to do with become privy to her secret?
An Elegant Facade is the second book in the Hawthorne House series. The beginning of this novel starts before the first novel, A Noble Masquerade ends. (You can read my review of A Noble Masquerade here). It is really interesting to see the events of the first book playing out from a different perspective in this novel.
One thing I like about this novel is getting to know Lady Georgina better. I will admit that after reading the first book in the series, I didn’t like her very much. But taking the time to see her side of the story and understand what motivated and drove her made me like her more.
If you enjoy Regency era romance, I think you will enjoy An Elegant Facade.
Lady Georgina Hawthorne has always known she must marry well. After years of tirelessly planning every detail of her debut season, she is poised to be a smashing success and have her choice of eligible gentlemen.
With money and powerful business connections but no title, Colin McCrae is invited everywhere but accepted nowhere. He intends to marry someday, but when he does it will not be to a shallow woman like Lady Georgina, whose only concerns appear to be status and appearance.
But beneath her flawless exterior, Georgina’s social aspirations stem from a shameful secret she is desperately trying to keep hidden–and that Colin is too close to discovering. Drawn to each other despite their mutual intent to avoid association, is the realization of their dreams worth the sacrifices they’ll be forced to make?
