Chiara's Choice

Chalon Linton
ISBN Number: 

A sweeping historical romance, Italian fire meets British composure and produces sparks of attraction so powerful, neither Chiara Madero, the daughter of an Italian baron, or Mr. Abraham Jamison, a second born gentleman can resist them. At least not for long. Her enchanting appearance and fire usually get Chiara what she wants, but Abraham is certain his lack of direction, title, or wealth preclude him from Chiara’s attention. Except their mutual wit stirs a rapport that soon turns to friendship, and promises something more. Chiara wants to choose her husband for herself. Abraham wants to be worthy of her. Together they might both get what they want. If only they can defy her families’ plans and make the choice themselves. 

A heartfelt romance, “Chiara’s Choice” takes a typical regency romance plot and centers the focus on Chiara. While the story follows the steps of both Chiara and Abraham, it is Chiara to decides to pursue Abraham and who instigates their battel of wits, putting Abraham into the position of reacting to her interest. The interplay between them is delightful and realistic. The supporting characters further add to the drama of the main characters’ courtship but without taking away the focus. While the ending is predictable and the story isn’t exactly new, fans of fiery and independent female leads and kind and witty heroes will find this book to be a delightful and steady read with plenty of clean and innocent interactions plus a happy conclusion to soothe a stressed reader.
