Book Review: Runaway Heart by Claudy Conn

Runaway Heart by Claudy Conn
Genre: Young Adult (Regency/Historical Romance) 18+
Date Published: September 24, 2012
Publisher: Self

Spirited Chelsea decided she’d sooner run away to London than return to her vain and selfish guardian, Aunt Augusta.
But in her wildest dreams, she never imagined her dear godmother would arrange a Season—or convince the ton’s most eligible bachelor to take her under his wing.

Lord Wainwright was a handsome rogue who was not interested in coy games and missish airs. He expected a country mouse with no polish, but instead he found a thoroughly engaging minx, and was oddly irritated by all the male attention she received.

Chelsea with her unspoiled eye saw beyond Wainwright’s pursuit of hedonism to the intriguing man underneath. But to her shock, it appeared his heart belonged to her horrid Aunt Augusta!

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

Runaway Heart is the first novel I've read by Claudy Conn. It was a thoroughly entertaining read. There was a little comedy, suspense, and of course romance. Chelsea is a spunky girl who's trying to take her life into her own hands. She's fun and says what she thinks regardless of who she is saying it to. I think that's what draws Lord Wainwright to her. She's not like the other ladies, and he's intrigued by her. He was charming, and not so innocent. An easy character to like. How they said and did some things weren't too historically accurate, but the story itself was entertaining. This was a fun and quick story to read. I would definitely read more of this author's work.

After over 40 publications in the Regency and Historical Romance genre, I retired. It seemed like a good thing to do at the time, but oh how I missed expressing my imagination through words on paper. So after a 10+ year break, I started again... and what fun it has been! It's a new direction for me and I'm so excited about it all. Come enter my world of Fae and let's see where it takes us!
