Linore Burkard’s fans devoured her first two Regency novels Before the Season Ends and The House in Grosvenor Square. After all, her sister, Ariana, married The Paragon, Mr. Phillip Mornay, five years earlier-which all but guarantees that she, Beatrice, can also make a famous match to a wealthy man. But her sister and husband have disappeared from high society as they raise a family at their country estate. Can Beatrice persuade them to chaperone her in London?

Readers who loved the author's first book, Before the Season Ends, will delight in this charming sequel set in Regency London.

As Ariana Forsythe plans her wedding to Philip Mornay, she must adjust to the realization that she is soon to become the wife of an extremely wealthy man. She wonders if it's wrong to rejoice that her future husband is rich. But she promises herself to use her new position to do what she can to aid the numerous street waifs she sees all too often in London.

During a tour of her future home--the house in Grosvenor Square--Ariana makes plans to redecorate according to her tastes. But when Philip arrives home later, he is informed that an expensive silver candlestick and a miniature portrait of George III have gone missing. Moreover, each time Ariana visits the house, accompanied by a friend or relation, another item disappears.

Shortly thereafter Ariana is abducted as she leaves a performance at Covent Garden Theatre, leaving Philip to unravel the pieces of the mystery. Where has his future bride been taken, and by whom? For what reason? How does Ariana's faith play a role?

Finally, after the safe return of his intended, how does Philip--a man of intense discrimination in his tastes--find the many alterations in his house? And what on earth is behind the sudden influx of bills from every charity in London, all thanking him profusely for his uncommon generosity? Will he have second thoughts about his future bride?

Readers will find romance, intrigue, humor, and inspiration in this new book of spirited romance for the Jane Austen soul.

I was so happy to find Ariana and Phillip's story continued in this book. Watching their relationship blossom into a deep, meaningful love was a treat. Ariana and Phillip are not perfect but work to overcome the challenges life throws at them. They grow in character through the first and second book making them well thought-out realistic characters. I enjoyed living life through their eyes. Again, as in the first book, there is just enough detail to paint a vivid picture of the world in which this story takes place. As I read, I was transported through time. The humor that is filter through out the book and the melodramatic situations that occur are all enjoyable and appropriate to the genre of this book. I have read this book several times and it never gets old. I only keep books that I know I will re-read. This is one of those books that will continue to grace my shelf. Thank you for an enjoyable journey. I high recommend this book!

Oh how I enjoyed this book....it was good clean fun, very readable, the characters are imminently enjoyable, the story flowed, was believable, the situations were believable and there were no jarring errors in her history or her grammar and spelling. It flowed easily, made sense and had some tense moments in it. Yes I know, it's a Romance and they always end happily ever after, but sometimes the author, reader and characters go through some very tense situations. I am still looking for a kindle edition of book one and have already purchased book three.

Thank you for a delightful read, Linore Rose Burkard! TV is boring and reading is my adventure, escape and relief from being old. I love good authors and pray you will write more books. The inspiration part of the story was not overdone, but was so totally believable to the situations and times and lives of these people.

Oh! And praying makes perfect sense to me.

The best part about this book was the last half. I felt like it dragged a bit through the first half and not much got accomplished. I did enjoy seeing Mr Mornay's faith grow throughout the book and the last abduction/rescue sequence was really great and quite suspenseful. ;) Mr O'Brien really got on my nerves with his "pert pretensions and under-bred finery". (Especially at the end...) :P The last day in the book was really frustrating (which it's supposed to be) and I felt just as nervous and confused as the characters. I like to have everything figured out and watch it play and so not knowing anything and having no ideas as to what the issue was really sped me along to finish the last few chapters. haha
I was glad that the villain in the story was brought to task, because in the first book, and with minor trouble makers throughout both, I kind of got the feeling too many people were being let off with barely any punishment... obviously we should extend grace, but wrong IS wrong and there are consequences, and it seemed like every wrongdoer was really quickly welcomed and embraced with just a slight scolding. Anyway- the plot was still interesting in both stories, and Wingate got shipped off in the second, so that kind of made up for the others. ;)
A satisfying ending, and some great laughs mixed in kept the story interesting, but overall I preferred book 1 in the series.
Looking forward to reading the third book, about Ariana's sister. :)

In this endearing sequel, The House In Grosvenor Square, Linore R. Burkard reintroduces all the delightful characters we so fell in love with in Before the Season Ends! Set in Regency London, it is a time of coming out balls, lords and ladies, magnificent gowns, beautifully architectured mansions with finely manicured grounds, and of course...romance in the air!

*Spoiler alert if one hasn't read Before the Season Ends* Our heroine, the lovely and compassionate, Miss Ariana Forsythe, has captured the heart of Mr. Phillip Mornay, the wealthiest and most sought after bachelor in town. In Ariana, Phillip finds an unpretentious young lady, as beautiful on the inside as she is on the out, and has fallen in love with her AND her God, quite in spite of himself.

In the two weeks before they are to be joined in holy matrimony, dastardly happenings begin to occur, putting a blight on the couple's newfound happiness. Expensive objects begin to disappear from Mr. Mornay's house, Grosvenor Square, and someone tries to abduct Ariana on her way home one evening. What insidious, sinister force has reared its ugly head against Ariana and her betrothed?...and why? Will they finally make it to the altar or will darkness prevail against them?

I was blessed to be able to read these two books back to back, and what a wonderful journey it was! Ms. Burkard's extensive knowledge of the regency era; the customs, architectural designs, the aristocrat's "lingo", clothing designs, etc., is astounding! With an exciting storyline full of twists and turns, and a beautiful, spiritual thread throughout, this novel is a must read! Very impressive, Linore Burkard!
