Book Review: A Defense of Honor by Kristi Ann Hunter

About the Book

A Defense of Honor (Haven Manor #1)
by Kristi Ann Hunter

Description from Goodreads: 

When Katherine "Kit" FitzGilbert turned her back on London society more than a decade ago, she determined never to set foot in a ballroom again. But when business takes her to London and she's forced to run for her life, she stumbles upon not only a glamorous ballroom but also Graham, Lord Wharton. What should have been a chance encounter becomes much more as Graham embarks on a search for his friend's missing sister and is convinced Kit knows more about the girl than she's telling.

After meeting Graham, Kit finds herself wishing things could have been different for the first time in her life, but what she wants can't matter. Long ago, she dedicated herself to helping women escape the same scorn that drove her from London and to raising the innocent children caught in the crossfire. But as much as she desperately wishes to tell Graham everything, the risk of revealing the truth may come at too high a price for those she loves.

Book Review

A Defense of Honor by Kristi Ann Hunter is the first book in a new series of Christian regency romance.

Many years ago, Kit and her friends decided to start an orphanage, in a hidden country estate, for the abandoned, illegitimate children of the nobility. Business takes her to London, and she runs into Lord Graham. He is searching for his sister and begins to follow Kit because he believes she might hold the answer. Can Kit keep the children hidden?

Kristi Ann Hunter is one of my favorite authors, and I jumped on the chance to read this book. It didn’t disappoint. The romance was a lot of fun, especially because of all the secrets to unravel and the suspense and misunderstandings that brought. Not that I would find it particularly fun to live through, but it was interesting to watch and see what would happen next. I also liked the characters themselves, because many of them had memorable personalities, and I enjoyed watching the way that they grew into better people.

This book was very enjoyable to read, and since I already read the rest of the series, let me say that I loved all of those books as well. It is a good series with cute romances, quirky characters, some humor, and historical cultural details fitted seamlessly into the story. I highly recommend it.

I received a complementary copy of this book from NetGalley. All opinions are my own, and I was not compensated for sharing them.
