Set in Northern England in 1820, Blackmoore is a regency romance that tells the story of Kate Worthington, a young woman struggling to learn how to escape her family and follow her heart.
England, 1820. Kate Worthington hat sich geschworen, niemals zu heiraten. Sie möchte frei sein und die Welt bereisen. Ihre Mutter missbilligt das, schließlich ziemt sich das nicht für eine junge Frau. Als Kate jedoch auf das Anwesen Blackmoore eingeladen wird, lässt sie sich auf eine Wette mit ihrer Mutter ein: Gelingt es Kate, drei Heiratsanträge in Blackmoore zu bekommen – und sie alle abzulehnen –, ist sie frei. Wenn nicht, entscheidet ihre Mutter über ihre Zukunft. Ein Kinderspiel, denkt Kate. Doch kaum in Blackmoore angekommen, merkt sie, dass es gar nicht so leicht ist, in wenigen Tagen drei Männerherzen zu erobern – und zu brechen. Und als sie schließlich einen Antrag bekommt, stellt sie mit Entsetzen fest, dass ihr Herz etwas ganz anderes will als ihr Verstand ...
Marianne Daventry würde alles dafür geben, der Langweile in Bath zu entkommen, wo ein lästiger Verehrer immer wieder versucht, sie für sich zu gewinnen. Deswegen zögert sie nicht, als sie eines Tages eine Einladung von ihrer Zwillingsschwester Cecily erhält, sie auf dem großen Landsitz Edenbrooke zu besuchen. Marianne hofft, dort in aller Ruhe entspannen und die schöne Landschaft erkunden zu können, während ihre Schwester damit beschäftigt ist, den attraktiven Erben von Edenbrooke zu umwerben – doch spätestens, als sie dem sehr unfreundlichen, aber sehr gut aussehenden Sir Philip in die Arme läuft, wird Marianne allmählich klar, dass man manche Dinge einfach nicht planen kann. Denn der geheimnisvolle Mann wird nicht nur ihr Herz in Aufruhr versetzen, sondern auch ihr ganzes Leben durcheinanderwirbeln ...
This romantic classic from British author R.D. Blackmore has something for everyone -- a detailed historical account of the turbulent lives of English farmers in the nineteenth century, a gripping tale of star-crossed lovers, epic family feuds, struggles for power, and much more. Fans of works like Pride and Prejudice and The Grapes of Wrath will love Lorna Doone.
This is an illustrious historical romance set in the backdrop of the Monmouth Rebellion in the 17th century during the reign of Charles II. John Ridd and his family are threatened by the Doones, the family of outlaws. The young boy explores a new world and meets a beautiful girl with whom he falls in love. The twists and turns of the plot and striking landscapes of Badgworthy valley are pleasant.
Dariel : A Romance of Surrey "I am not quite assured," she began, after waiting for me to speak,—as if I could, with the tongue in such a turbulence of eyes and heart!—"it is beyond my knowledge of English society, Mr. Cran-lee, to be confident that I am taking the correct step, in advancing in this manner to declare to you the things that have come into my thoughts. But if I have done wrong, you will pardon me, I hope, because I am so anxious about very dismal things." "I assure you," I answered, with a flourish of my hat which I had been practising upon the road, "that it is of the very best English society. If we dared, we should insist upon it upon every occasion, Mademoiselle." "You must not call me that, sir. I am not of the French. I prefer the English nation very greatly. There has only been one name given to me by my father, and that is Dariel." "It is the sweetest name in all the world. Oh, Dariel, am I to call you Dariel?" "If it is agreeable to you, Mr. Cran-lee, it will be also agreeable to me; for why should you not pronounce me the same as Stepan does, and Allai?"—oh, that was a cruel fall for me. "Although I have passed most of my life in England, and some of it even in London, I have not departed from the customs of my country, which are simple, very simple. See here is Kuban and Orla too! Will you not make reply to them?" How could I make reply to dogs, with Dariel's eyes upon me? Many fellows would have been glad to kick Kuban and his son Orla, to teach them better than to jump around emotions so far above them. But not I, or at any rate not for more than half a moment; so sweetly was my spirit raised, that I never lifted either foot. Some of Dariel's gentle nature came to strike the balance; for I may have been a little short of that. "Good dogs, noble dogs, what a pattern to us!" I had a very choice pair of trousers on, worthy of Tom Erricker,—if his had been ever bashful,—and in another minute there scarcely would have been enough of them left to plough in. But the joy of my heart—as I was beginning already to myself to call her—perceived at a glance the right thing to do; and her smile and blush played into one another, as the rising sun colours the veil he weaves.
