To Warm a Wintered Heart by Deborah M. Hathaway
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I've enjoyed Ms. Hathaway's other books and was excited when she wrote another regency. And isn't that cover pretty?!?!?!
Our heroine Charlotte is kind and spunky and was a likable lead. Gabriel has his issues, but was likable in his own way. He spends a good chunk of the story avoiding his feelings for Charlotte, which can be entertaining at times. Charlotte and Gabriel get off to a rocky start, he's broody and standoffish and she is friendly and kind. A kindness he misinterprets as her wanting to catch a husband. Throughout the book they kind of bounce around from friendship to frenemies and have some fun back-and-forth. Of course, stories like this can make you want to shake the characters at times.
Overall, this is a sweet romance, with charming settings and likable characters. It has all the elements that I enjoy in a regency woven into a sweet story of two people having to overcome personal and outside obstacles to be together. Recommend to fans of sweet regency romances.
Content: Clean romance, no language, and mild violence
