Overview

Ravenstone (Book 1, The Ravenstone Chronicles) by Louise Franklin

Determined never to give a man power over her life Georgiana swears never to marry. But her mother has other plans and forces Georgiana to accept a marriage proposal. In exchange her mother will keep the dark secret Georgiana fears, if exposed, will destroy forever the lives of those she holds most dear.
Georgiana journeys to the stately manor of Ravenstone determined to fulfill her end of the bargain. Ravenstone is her new husband’s country estate, where he installs his new wife before returning to London to spend her money gambling. Determined to restore Ravenstone, and challenged by her new husband’s mounting debts, Georgiana finds an unexpected new revenue source when she discovers a smuggling ring on the estate. Suddenly she is catapulted into the intrigues of smugglers and spies that may threaten her life and shatter her heart. For here, Nicholas Markham, a young and equally determined man, shows her a passion so fierce and a love so absolute that Georgiana is torn between responsibility and desire...and between two vastly different and irreconcilable lives.

This was a free book. I loved the book, I liked the characters and the fast pace of the book. Problem was I didn't realize it was a book 1 when I bought which is normally ok because if I read a free book and really like it I will buy the next book. I have previously bought a full series if I have liked the book. Most books though that are a series will at least end with a ending that if you didn't continue you would feel like you finished a book. This book just ended like you were at the end of a chapter. Since I liked the book I did buy the second book and it was also really good. I finished it in two days. My complaint about the book is how the author ends the second book also. There were so many things left untied that you feel their has to be a third book.(even though not written yet) I truly finished thinking "is this it" "this is the end" Even though I really liked the story line I would not buy another book by this author just because of how she ended her books.

A dark story with unexpected themes: incest, women's position in society, poverty, war. An idomitable heroine. Well-written and edited. You must purchase book 2 in the series to find resolution.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It takes on difficult topics in a historic context. The main character has a remarkable level of strength and yet remains vulnerable. It does end on a cliffhanger and I raced to get the next book.

I really enjoyed this book. From beginning to end it was pack with action, excitement, and passion. I love the leading character, she is strong and smart. This story just captures you from the first to last page. I look forward to book 2.

I loved this book and had a hard time putting it down. I, like others, am disappointed by the way it ended but i did see that it was a book 1  free book so I guess can't be too upset. I loved the plot and story line. I really liked how the author took such a serious subject and some how made it less creepy and twisted then it could have been. I am dying to know what happens and will be buying the second but probably not until the third comes out so I don't have to wait for another conclusion.

It was a very good read until the end. I realize there is a second book, which apparently also ends with a cliffhanger, so I will just assume that Georgiana dies at the hands of the soldiers and leave it at that. At least she got laid, I guess? Happy reading!

Cliffhanger...not interested in the TBC type romance. It is okay if characters continue with their story into book 2, so readers can read how they resolved their issues.  But a  Romance w/ a cliffhanger is not my for me. For others who do not mind, happy reading.

Wow great book!  I love the regency period, the mystery and though Georgianna was a victim of violence as a child she is now a strong woman   doing what she needs to, to survive.  I read this in 3 hours could not put it down.Now for book two
