Blackmoore: Intriguingly Beautiful

Our first day of the Third Annual Half-Birthday Bash will be celebrated with a review and giveaway of Blackmoore, by Julianne Donaldson. 

Blackmoore: A Proper RomanceBlackmoore: A Proper Romance by Julianne Donaldson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After reading Edenbrooke, I thought there could never be any other novel as perfectly lovely. But I repent the notion. To limit the artistry and glorious writing talents of Julianne Donaldson was an error.

Blackmoore is completely detached from the storyline of Edenbrooke, yet Donaldson captures that element of magical delight present in her first feat of writerly greatness and places it within the heart of every character, scene, and plot advancement found in her new love, Blackmoore. There is everything a reader could want--adventure, intrigue, and romance which unfolds beautifully sans any hint of explicit sensuality.

One of my many favorite quotes comes from the words of Henry to Kate:
"I wonder what you will do with your wings once you have found them. I wonder how far away they will take you..."

Blackmoore will stand on its own as the best romance novel for 2013. Get to reading it, and spread the word.
