The Captain's Daughter by Jennifer Delamere **Review*

The Captain's Daughter

Harm-hearted Victorian romance brings 1880s London to life.

When a series of circumstances beyond her control leave Rosalyn Bernay alone and penniless in London, she chances upon a job backstage at a theater that is presenting the most popular show in London. A talented musician and singer, she feels immediately at home and soon becomes enthralled with the idea of pursuing a career on the stage.
A hand injury during a skirmish in India has forced Nate Moran out of the army until he recovers. Filling his time at a stable of horses for hire in London, he has also spent the past two months working nights as a stagehand, filling in for his injured brother. Although he's glad he can help his family through a tough time, he is counting the days until he can rejoin his regiment. London holds bitter memories for him that he is anxious to escape. But then he meets the beautiful woman who has found a new lease on life in the very place Nate can't wait to leave behind.
 
REVIEW:
This is the first book in a new series and I am sure it will grab your heart like it did mine. I haven't read any Christian romance in a long time simply because I am picky when it comes to romance. What I appreciate about Christian romance (and Amish romance) is the courtship that is involved. Watching the romance and the love slowly (but not snail slow) unfold and bloom. Yes there is a physical connection and chemistry is definitely there but,  they aren't rushing to jump into bed. There is chivalry and a purity in this romance that you don't get often yet wasn't mushy or outdated for these days that I enjoyed and appreciated. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.
