Shygirl: Reading After Midnight

I will read anything I can get my hands on. Seriously.

 Most books I read are reviewed for Harlequin Junkie, but I'll have an occasional independent or author requested review that I'll post.

Thoughtful Beginning to a New Regency Series

Someone To Love (A Westcott Novel) - Mary Balogh

Someone to Love was a thoughtful historical romance in the brand new Westcott series by Mary Balogh. An epic rags-to-riches story that shook one family to its very core, this exceedingly well-written novel introduced us to some intriguing people and had a slow burn romance that was absolutely wonderful.

“You once told me, Avery, that your dearest dream was to have someone to love.”
His eyes gazed back into hers, wide-open, very blue in the fading evening sunlight and the flickering light of the candles. “Yes,” he said.
“Can I be that someone?” she asked him.

Now this being a brand new series, there were a lot of characters to get to know as well as we had to learn about the Westcott family’s history. So it was a bit slow to start out but it did pick up after Anna met her family and it kept building from there, leaving me smitten with Avery and the rest of the group. I really enjoyed the overall storyline and thought Balogh did well (as always!) with the character development.
