Overview

Can a Regency lady win back the man she rejected?

Lady Sara Rowdon is a day-dreamer who imagines herself jousting with villains. If only she could win her real battle, with love.

At her parents' insistence, Sara broke her own heart by rejecting her impoverished suitor in hopes of finding a wealthy husband. She had no idea that her father had brought on their financial difficulties by gambling. Since then, Captain Kenneth Link unexpectedly inherited a title and a fortune. Now Sara's parents, near ruin, order her to win him back, but how can she persuade the new Marquess of Broadmoor that she truly does love him?

Or perhaps, if she stopped day-dreaming and put her mind to it, she might discover that he never stopped loving her, either.

Day-Dreaming Lady 3.9 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 7 reviews.

If you enjoy a good, witty historical romance you should skip this book. The main character is not interesting, the hero is petty, the parents are neglectful and there is very little historical accuracy. The situations are completely unbelievable. Disappointing.

Attacked a bird with unsheathed paws. Its head was missing. Stalked a vole. That too, was wounded badly. Sat on a boulder in the middle of the clearing. The long grasses looked like an ocean of green. The flowers blew off a pretty scent. The wind blew and Silverpaw's pelt glistened like the moon. She looked very pretty in the breeze

A must read for a regency romance novel lovers! This book was Not Fluff! Ii believe it to be more accurate of how marriages were arranged in the day, and the characters where well developed & endearing. Please don't pass it up because of the limited number of reviews, you will miss out on some laughs & tears!

Daydream believer Enjoyable and imaginative, creative and daring, the best descriptions for Lady Sarah and her adventures in her quest to win back a love that she gave up all per her parent’s requests. Lady Sarah is a sweet, trusting girl who truly cares for the people that she loves. She has a kind heart and the best of intentions that unfortunately go astray. At least she’s able to save a few people throughout her quest, though with all that she must endure I can certainly understand why she falls to daydreaming, I myself have such a habit, though I haven’t acted upon them since I was a child. It is these actions, though, that give Lady Sarah her bravado and courage to face her impending disgrace with dignity until she takes matters of her life into her own hands.

This is an okay read in which the heroine drifts into daydreams to escape her ho-hum reality and the hero is somewhat petty in wanting to get revenge against the heroine for rejecting his proposal four years earlier. The heroine's parents are self-serving and have no redeeming qualities, but others in the supporting cast of characters are interesting character studies that bring some amusement to a plot that is hardly new and different.
