An Unexpected Bride: A Regency Romance

Ashtyn Newbold
 When a missing lady returns to Brighton, all she wants is to protect her child. Can a marriage of convenience with an honorable gentleman save them both?

Eleanor Claridge had it all. A family that loved her, a secret romance with a handsome soldier, and a beautiful home in the seaside town of Brighton. Abducted and taken to Scotland under the ruse of a happy elopement, Eleanor was forced to marry the wicked man she had once loved. Widowed and alone, she flees on the first coach back to Brighton with her young son, vowing never to marry or trust another man again.

Henry Beaumont, by all opinions of society, was meant to be a vicar. After inheriting an estate, he finds his life of a gentleman boring, bleak, and without purpose. When he meets the missing Claridge girl on her journey back to Brighton, he is drawn to protecting Eleanor, her son, and their many secrets.

When Eleanor’s reputation and the safety of her child are questioned, she has no choice but to enter into a marriage of convenience with Henry, whose kindness and inviting blue eyes leave her questioning if love is such a dreadful notion after all. Can she learn to open her heart again? Or will the secrets of her past catch up with her before she has the chance?

Ashtyn Newbold grew up with a love of stories. When she discovered Jane Austen books as a teen, she learned she was a sucker for romantic ones. Her first novel was published shortly after high school and she never looked back. When not indulging in sweet romantic comedies and regency period novels (and cookies), she writes romantic stories of her own. Ashtyn also dearly loves to laugh, bake, sing, and do anything that involves creativity and imagination.
