Overview

When Dreams Come True by Cathy Maxwell

Everyone knew the Earl of Penhollow needed a wife, so one thunderous night the villagers gathered together to ask the ocean to deliver a bride to the bachelor lord . . .

When Pierce Kirrier rescues a mysterious beauty from the billowing ocean waves, he has no idea who she is or where she came from. But at first sight of this enchanting maiden, he knows he must claim her for his own. Taking her back to Penhollow Hall, he pampers her like a princess, determined to win her trust and her heart.

For Eden, awakening in an elegant bedchamber in a remote corner of Cornwall is like a perfect dream. In Pierces arms she has discovered true love, true joy, and a passion she never imagined could exist. Yet she knows in her heart that, once her secret past catches up with her, her dreams could be shattered . . . forever.

I love Cathy Maxwell's books. This one was intriguing with just enough danger and suspense to keep things interesting. The characters were flawed enough to be believable and the story plot was detailed and well thought out. She wrapped up all the loose ends. The best friend reunion was a bit rushed at the end. Her supportive role could have been played up a bit more. All in all a very enjoyable story.

Posted on Romancing the Book's blog Reviewed by Jen Review Copy Provided by Joan Schulhafer Publishing and Consulting As most of those that follow my reviews know, I’m a fan of historical romances. And I love it when authors give us unique characters instead of your stand cookie-cutter members of the ton. In When Dreams Come True, Cathy Maxwell has woven a magical tale with characters I came to love. Pierce isn’t your typical earl. He cares nothing for society, preferring to stay in the country tending to his estate. And when his mother pressures him to get married and have children, he puts his foot down and states again and again that he will only marry for love. See, his parents had a loveless marriage and he doesn’t want to go down that same path. So imagine his surprise when the mysterious Eden is in need of rescuing and it’s pretty much love at first sight. Now, within the first couple chapters the reader learns that Eden isn’t your typical heroine either. She’s not ton. She’s a girl who was taken off the mean streets of London and raised in a high-class brothel, trained in all the social arts only to be sold to the highest bidder. But she takes matters into her own hands by running away… which is why she’s in need of a rescue. She dreams of a life filled with love, children and security, but feels that her past is going to hold her back. Both Eden and Pierce are dreaming of finding love and as it is with all romances, we follow them achieving that dream. Ms Maxwell has created a memorable tale with a great set of supporting characters and the plot tension needed as Eden’s past catches up to her. I laughed, I cried, and I wanted to smack a few characters upside the head — all marks of a good book. I can’t wait to read more of Ms Maxwell’s books and I wonder why she’s not been on my radar longer.

The Widow, with the help of several village woman, calls forth a spell to bring a future bride for their Cornish earl, a woman who will grant an heir to this noble family on whom everyone in the area depends. None who participate doubt the event will soon bring forth the promised bride!!! Meanwhile, the "promised one" is in London hearing words meant to give her strength as she has been told she will embark on a trip to the Middle East to be one of many concubines to a rich Sultan. Eden's one and only friend says words that prove to be the core of this story, "I will pray that God gives you the courage to free yourself." So begins a journey for Eden in which she will draw on that courage to start a new life, one the reader is not sure she will initially survive. Pierce, Lord Penhollow, has more people trying to arrange a wedding for him than he can stand. Yet he also wonders what would it be like to actually marry a woman for love? A friend warns him that's a dream that drastically changes after the "knot is tied," yet Pierce still dreams. Imagine his surprise on finding a shipwrecked woman whose first look at him with magical green eyes turns his life into a whirlwind of desire and dreams! It also inflames quite a few characters who had their own plans lined up for the Lord! The plot continues with several challenges to Pierce and Eden's love because of the secret Eden holds to herself. But it turns out that there are many secrets waiting to be revealed and resolved in this well-told romance story. Every romance reader loves a passionate love story, but it's so much better when there is a tangible mystery story tied into it. When Dreams Come True is a tale with plenty of conflict, misunderstandings, and passion! Well done, Cathy Maxwell!
