Overview

Lady Elinor Ashworth always longed for adventure, but when she runs away from her abusive aunt, she finds more than she bargained for. Elinor fears her aunt who is irrational and dangerous, threatening Elinor and anyone she associates with. When she encounters an inquisitive gentleman, she accepts his help, but fearing for his safety, hides her identity by pretending to be a seamstress. She resists his every attempt to draw her out, all the while fighting her attraction to him.

There are too many women in barrister Stephen Chaplin's life, but he has never been able to turn his back on a damsel in distress. The younger son of a baronet is a rescuer of troubled females, an unusual vocation fueled guilt over his failure to save the woman he loved from her brutal husband. He cannot help falling in love with his secretive seamstress, but to his dismay, the truth of her background reveals Stephen as the ineligible party.

"...fast paced story in this wonderful regency style. Her characters live on the pages and the reader is pulled in to anxiously find the happy ending. Ms. Mclaughlin has an excellent writing style and has mastered her craft to perfection. If the reader likes regency then this book is definitely a must read. I look forward to her next release." - Mariah, The Romance Studio

Editorial Reviews

In The Library Reviews - Joyce Handzo
A charming story from start to finish, this book takes readers to London and shows them the contrasting lifestyles that existed during the 1800's� With an obvious knowledge of this time period, the author uses clothing, dialogue and setting to add realistic touches to the story. The current political situation is also alluded to, and the characters' actions are believable because they are based on life as it was..
captures the reader's interest with a lively story...
The Road to Romance - S. Khaw
LADY ELINOR'S ESCAPE was a sweet and pleasant read. The author throws in a little heartbreak and a bit of adventure that livens up the story and saves it from being overly sweet. The main characters are likeable, especially Elinor, who could have easily become an overly tragic character but instead stood up for herself and takes control over her own destiny... In the end, all of the story's loose ends are tied up nicely, and I can also see a possible sequel based on one of the minor characters.
Romance Reviews Today - Jani Brooks
With well-rounded and vital secondary characters and a simple but delightful premise, LADY ELINOR'S ESCAPE is a very enjoyable read. Ms. McLaughlin has once again created a tale rich with great characters and filled with romance, humor, and a twinge of sadness. Although this is the author's first Regency novel, she's done her research well. I highly recommend LADY ELINOR'S ESCAPE.
Crystal Reviews - Viviane Crystal
Fascinating in intelligent detail and lovely in its romantic charm, Lady Elinor's Escape is fast-paced in conflict and leisurely in its romantic suggestion - a sure delight for lovers of Regency romance novels and a fine presentation of this particular period of English society.
