Jennifer Moore's Becoming Lady Lockwood is not the typical regency romance. I loved that she was able to tell a clean romance with many adventures and a few twists. I found this story captivating, entertaining and I loved the character Amelia Becket. The character, Amelia is not the typical regency heroine and doesn't swoon at obstacles or hard work. The true regency era might have shun Amelia's spirit, but she's a great heroine for today's audiences. I encourage you to check out Becoming Lady Lockwood at your public library or buy it on Amazon.
