“An Uncommon Courtship” ~ Book Review

Feb 6, 2017 by

Welcome back to Rachel’s Back Talk! I’m so glad you could join me again. Today I am reviewing Kristi Ann Hunter’s book, An Uncommon Courtship.


As is my custom, if I could ask Kristi one question about An Uncommon Courtship it would be — “What gave you the idea to have Trent forced into a marriage?” And if you want to know why I asked that question, I guess you’ll just have to read the book to find out!


And without further ado, onto Rachel’s Back Talk!

                                                               an uncommon courtship back

From the Back Cover:

Life for Lady Adelaide Bell was easier if she hid in her older sister’s shadow–which worked until her sister got married. Even with the pressure of her socially ambitious mother, the last thing she expected was a marriage of convenience to save her previously spotless reputation.

Lord Trent Hawthorne couldn’t be happier that he is not the duke in the family. He’s free to manage his small estate and take his time discovering the life he wants to lead, which includes grand plans of wooing and falling in love with the woman of his choice. When he finds himself honor bound to marry a woman he doesn’t know, his dream of a marriage like his parents’ seems lost forever.

Already starting their marriage on shaky ground, can Adelaide and Trent’s relationship survive the pressures of London society?

I love the Hawthrone family! First Miranda, then Georgina, and now Trent. This family definitely has it’s fill of the Upper Class society, however, Kristi brings them to life and shows us their reality and what they must deal with being in the same family as a duke!

Starting off with Trent — Kristi gave him his story, but not like I expected it. Everyone knew that the Hawthrones married for love (and by everyone I mean their family, their friends, and of course, readers like us!). Trent however is forced into a marriage in order to save a girl’s reputation. Point 1 for Trent — he is very noble! However, Trent goes back and forth about a lot of things. He wants love, but isn’t sure how to find that.

Then there is Adelaide. Adelaide has a lot to deal with and while marrying Trent, didn’t seem so good, at least it got her away from a family that didn’t care about her. Adelaide grew up in this book and really seemed to figure out how to make decisions for herself and not be afraid to voice her opinions.

I loved these two! Their antics, their personalities, and they way that they pushed through the odds and proved society was wrong. Love was possible for the two of them.
