An Enduring Love by Wareeze Woodson, Blurb Blitz & ♥GIVEAWAY♥ (Regency Romance)

Author: Wareeze Woodson
Title: An Enduring Love
Genre: Regency Romance
Born and raised in Latvia, Rebecca Balodis marries Rhys Sudduth, an English diplomat. Shortly thereafter, he is summoned home to attend his father’s death-bed. Rebecca cannot accompany him at the time and becomes trapped in the turmoil plaguing her country. He is informed she died in the upheaval.

Nearly four years later, she escapes and arrives in London with their son in tow. Arriving in the middle of his sister’s ball is very awkward, especially since Rhys plans to announce his betrothal to a young debutante later in the evening.

Trouble, tangled in suspense and danger, follow her from Latvia. Can this pair ever find or even recognize an enduring love? Is it worth keeping?
A liveried butler, stern of countenance and standing stiffly erect opened the door. “Your invitation, Ma’am.”

Rebecca trembled, but forced out, “Surely, I don’t need an invitation. Please inform Lord Rhys that his wife is here.”

Astonishment flashed across the butler’s face before he bowed his head and nodded for her to follow him. Sonja was seated in the hall while he led Rebecca to a small parlor papered with stripes of ivory and cream. The entire room seemed a little intimidating, with an elaborate sofa covered with gold brocade sitting before a wide window. Chairs were shattered about the room as well, but the beauty of the room did little to sooth her nerves. She glanced at the low table in front of the sofa then let her gaze shift to the fireplace, glowing with warmth. The softly burning coals added soothing comfort to the room and with that, her whole body relaxed.

After the butler exited, Rebecca quickly knelt down to straighten Johnnie’s apparel. “We want to look our best mans maz cilveku, my little man. You must learn English better now we are home. They are not expecting us, but no matter. Your father will love you.”

The door opened and Rhys stood on the threshold with a scowl of impatience on his face, speaking to the butler over his shoulder. “Some strumpet masquerading as my deceased wife. Be damned. You’re positive she said, my wife. Not a long lost relative wanting to sponge…?”

Rebecca jumped to her feet, took Johnnie by the hand and pasted a trembling smile on her lips. “Rhys.”

  2. Good Morning. Thanks for hosting An Enduring Love this morning. I had trouble logging in but I'm here now.. I have a question: If you select a book, do you consider the time setting such as An Enduring Love 200 years ago, or do you expect the characters to conform to today's pressures. 200 years ago, the standards were entirely different than today where men are displayed in 98% of the commercials as a dunce, belittled at every turn with the woman in charge. Your opinion please.

    1. Personally, I absolutely expect the author to do their best to keep true to the mores and norms of whatever time period the story is set in. Ladies of old were different animals than ladies of today. I am well aware of that, and that's why I choose historical romances; to experience an adventure from an entirely different point-of-view! Plus, none of us were alive 200+ years ago, and it's interesting seeing different authors' variations on what was "normal" back then.

  8. I love Historicals but I love them even more when they have that special twist. In this case I can sense that they will have to rekindle a flame and honor will have to play a huge role as he's asked another to be his new wife.
