Book Review: A Defense of Honor

From The Back:

Praise for Kristi Ann Hunter's An Inconvenient Beauty
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.
My Reflections:  
A defence of Honor is book one in the Haven manor series. What a strong start to a very promising series! I was expecting the normal stiff ballroom, high society storyline with a heart-tugging plot thrown in for good measure, what I got, however, was so much more!
The ballrooms were largely replaced by a quiet, quaint little village that boasts tranquillity and peace. The plot was deep, emotional and oh so well executed! 
I was pleasantly surprised by Hunter's candid exploration of the topic of illegitimate children and all involved. This aspect was very hidden in high society, ruining many lives in the process. Bringing to light the darkness surrounding these children was a bold move for this authour and I for one am overjoyed to see the beautiful story crafted from the ashes! well done Kristi Ann Hunter.

If you are looking for a regency type tale this may be your next read!
