Waiting On Wednesday: The Thief of Lanwyn Manor

October 2, 2019

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly feature that spotlights an up-and-coming release you are most excited about.

I love a good regency romance. They can transport you back and wrap you in an elegant setting. Regency is such a fabulous setting. You can either go with Gothic feel or you can go with the sweet romance, and sometimes you can have a wonderful mix!

Sarah E. Ladd is an author I look forward to when a new book comes out. Her regency romance stories are always a delight to read. They are a mix of sweet romance and a bit of mystery and adventure. 

Her new book doesn't release till next year, in January, but it isn't too far off now.

About the Book:
Perfect for fans of Poldark, Sarah Ladd’s latest Regency romance, The Thief of Lanwyn Manor, explores Cornwall, England, and the secrets within one of its historic manor houses.

In this sweet Regency romance, Julia knows Matthew Blake, copper mine owner and very eligible bachelor, is the gentleman she should set her eyes upon. But why can’t she steal her gaze away from his younger brother, Isaac?

Cornwall, England 1818—Julia Twethewey needs a diversion to mend her broken heart, so when her cousin invites her to Lanwyn Manor, Julia eagerly accepts. Lanwyn Manor is at the heart of Cornwall’s mining industry, and as a guest Julia is swept into its intricate world. It’s not long, though, before she realizes something dark lurks in the home’s ancient halls.

As a respected mine owner’s younger son, Isaac Blake is determined to keep his late father’s legacy alive through the family business, despite his brother’s careless attitude. In order to save their livelihood—and the livelihood of those around them—the brothers approach the master of Lanwyn Manor with plans to bolster the floundering local industry. Isaac can’t deny his attraction to the man’s charming niece, but his brother has made his intentions to court the lovely guest clear. And Isaac knows his place.

When tragedy strikes, mysteries arise, and items go missing, Julia and Isaac find they are pulled together in a swirl of strange circumstances, but despite their own best efforts to bow to social expectations, their hearts aren’t so keen to surrender.
