Following the marriages of three of her siblings, Polly Harrington can hardly wait to have a Season of her own in the hopes of finding the romance she’s always dreamt of. When the Earl of Yardley charms her with good looks and attentions, she ignores all warnings to stay away.
After losing his heart years ago, Lord Sebastian Taylor is determined to never marry again. Instead, he spends his time on his estate and assisting the constabulary with cases involving the nobility. When he learns of Lord Yardley’s scheme to ruin a young woman of the ton, he cannot stand idly by.
As he sets out to protect Lady Polly, Sebastian tries to deny his growing attraction to her, while Polly is confused by her feelings toward the stubborn man. Can they see beyond past hurts and their differences to find happiness with one another?
Hope of Romance is a 60,000-word romance with no cliffhangers, no cheating, and a guaranteed happily ever after! For readers 18+ due to some steamy love scenes.
His eyes swept over to Polly, who was now standing still as she looked out into the countryside, the field sweeping down to a pond in the distance. He watched as she tilted her face up to the sky, and the sun’s rays peeking through the clouds kissed the light skin of her face.
He walked over to her, standing beside her as he looked out over the view she had so wanted to see.
“I suppose it is rather beautiful,” he said with a bit of surprise. He had ridden this way many a time before, but had never truly taken a good enough look at his surroundings.
“It is heavenly to be out here, out of the city,” she said, taking in a deep breath.
“The city and all its people?” he asked, raising his eyebrows at her.
“And all its people,” she said with a slight smile on her lips, and he was relieved to see that some of the tension seemed to have already left her body. “And for a time, I no longer have to even worry about my freckles.”
Sebastian looked closer at her face, and could see that already the sprinkle of freckles on her nose were growing darker. They were rather endearing, he thought, and couldn’t understand why she would wish to hide them.
“Thank you for coming with me, Lord Taylor,” she said. “I know it was a rather odd request, but I feel … safe when I am with you.”

For a chance of winning just answer this question:
In Hope of Romance, Polly is, as the title suggests, a hopeless romantic. She is young and, at the beginning of the book, a little bit naive. I would love to know, what type of heroine do you prefer? Does it matter her age, her looks, her previous marriage status?
