Book Review-The Scandalous Deal of the Scarred Lady-Hanna Hamilton

Friday, May 22, 2020

My Heart went out to Lady Helena Barrington--she was kept sequestered in her home because of a rash that was all over her body and worse on her face. The rash was so itchy that she would scratch it till it bled. Her mother had died giving birth to her and her mother's sister came to live with them to take care of her.

All Helena wanted was to be courted like other girls so she would feel normal--not marry-bccause who would want to marry her with her affliction. Her Aunt never taught her societies rules so Helena kind of did and thought how she wanted.

Then one stormy night she saw a woman walking towards their house. She forced the butler to get her and bring her inside. Turns out this woman worked for James Campbell-a Duke who had just lost his entore fortune-or most of it. When the women grabbed a 5 ruby pin Helena caught her at it--and thus begins the story--and what a story it is!

I found myself up late reading this one. But have no fear--as in all historical romances (or most) there is a very happy ending!! Will you be able to guess what was causing Helena's affliction before it is revealed?

About the Author: (from Amazon)

Hanna Hamilton has been fascinated with the Regency era ever since she was a young teen, first discovering historical romance novels by famous authors such as Jane Austen and Lisa Kleypas. She believes that love was just so much more magical back then, more like a fairy tale. She always daydreamed about finding love herself that way, but since that is impossible in the twenty-first century, she decided to write about it instead!

Born in Texas, Hanna Hamilton obtained a degree in Creative Writing and has worked as a literature teacher before becoming a novelist. When she isn't writing, Hanna likes to explore the countryside with her husband and two children, gaining inspiration from the natural world around her.

So, come on a journey into love, confusion, and redemption all within the Regency era. Hanna hopes that you will enjoy immersing yourself into her novels and that you too will find a love for old-fashioned romance, just as she has.
