Chalon Linton was first introduced to Jane Austen by a dear friend and now she can’t get enough of handsome men in tailcoats. Her intrigue in the genre stems from a nostalgic longing for manners, wit, and true love. Fortunately, Chalon found her dashing gentleman, married him, and now lives happily ever after in Southern California.
The countryside of England provided an idyllic backdrop for Charles Brumley’s and Leah Hastings’s childhood. Neighbors and best friends, the pair passed many happy days racing through the rolling hills of Derbyshire. Everything was perfect until Charles ruined it all and abandoned Leah for university.
Six years later, the former friends are thrust into each other’s paths once more. Leah had been looking forward to the ball, an opportunity to further her acquaintance with the handsome Captain Wilkins but when she sees Charles’s familiar face through the crowd, her traitorous heart leaps.
Charles faces his own struggle: he has loved Leah since he was fifteen years old, yet it seems he is too late it appears that her affections are otherwise engaged. As the pair tentatively renews their friendship, the spark between them is undeniable.
After so many years apart, Leah endeavors to reconcile her feelings toward her once cherished companion. But when a conniving rival for Charles’s attention approaches Leah, the threat is clear: give up her association with Charles, or a devastating secret about her family will be revealed. Faced with an impossible decision, Leah must make a choice the ruin of her family or the ruin of her heart?

What people are saying about An Inconvenient Romance:
“I loved the Regency setting in this friends-to-romance story! Charles and Leah are so informal with each other as youth, there was a real contrast to how polite and civilized they must act around each other as adults . . . I enjoyed the plot and would recommend this book to fans of sweet romance!” -Heidi, Heidi Reads
“An Inconvenient Romance’ is delightful! It’s easy to see that Jane Austen has a heavy influence on this author. We see plenty of spunky ‘Elizabeth Bennet’ in the heroine, Miss Leah Hastings. Leaving out the usual titles we see in most Regency novels today, it has the familiar feel of Austen’s work, without the classical writing style . . . I could not put this down! I absolutely loved the way this was written, the plot and the way it all came together. Plenty to keep the reader guessing and unpredictable. I cannot wait to read more from this author!” -Amy
“I really loved this book. It’s told from the point of view of both Leah and Charles and really tugged at my heart. The characterization is done well, and I really liked the plot twists and emotional appeal. I finished it in two days because I couldn’t put it down once I started.” -Charissa, Joy in the Moments
“What a GREAT book! I LOVE regency romances! Emotions are OH.SO.REAL. And sometimes they conflict and get in the way of each other–especially when it comes to love! PERFECT read for February!”-Shauna, I Love to Read and Review Books
