The heart may choose the road less traveled…

Pressured into an unwanted marriage, Dorothea Manton escapes to her friend Lucy’s cottage, hoping to hide out until her twenty-first birthday when she will be able to choose her own fate. But trouble still finds her in the form of an injured soldier who collapses near the cottage. Free from the tethers of her conniving family, Thea befriends the major. Though friendship isn’t the only thing on her mind. Handsome and kind, Major Henry Felton treats her like a grown woman…not a sheltered miss.

With little money and no place to live, Felton would most likely be dead had this brave and intelligent young woman not rescued him. But her identity remains a mystery. She’ll give him only her first name and nothing more. What could she be hiding, and who could she be hiding from? The closer they grow in their quiet little cottage, the more rabid his curiosity becomes…and the deeper he falls for her.

Before Thea and Felton can explore their newfound feelings, a rival for Thea’s affections intervenes and declares himself Thea’s protector. To Felton, he reveals things about Thea she should have told him herself. Jealousy and honor clash, and Thea’s protector has an agenda of his own. Meanwhile, Thea’s erstwhile fiancé is on the hunt. With time running out and two men vying for her heart, Thea knows she must choose between a wounded soldier and a wealthy lord before her unwanted fiancé claims her.

After reading the last book and watching Lucy and Winchester fall in love.  It was obvious by the way things were going  that Thea was going to get her happily ever  if Lucy’s brother Rigby had his way it seemed. With  all this known and with bare facts revealed about Thea, this book was going to be interesting  to say the least as this picks up right after  the end of the previous book. Thea returns to us now trying to sort her own problems, worried that she might be forced to give up the life and friends who have helped stayed under the radar for so long.

It’s quite the surprised how Thea comes into her own in this book  . Thea may come across as a proper miss to those who don’t know her. Thea is actually as intriguing as Lucy even though she had to talked into  things sometimes. She maybe the calmer influence we  lead to believe  in the previous book,  however Thea is about to come into own person free from influence .

Thea has her own agenda and she playing a dangerous game whilst she waits to turn 21. Whilst her family situation was hinted at , her book An Unconventional Innocent lets Quince fully explore  her situation.  Thea isn’t afraid but she wants choices and Quince give us just that.

I loved the  historical version of a love triangle  in this book. It add the charm to this novel given  it’s still a respectable playing to Thea’s It’s quite adventure, Thea obviously pushes the bounds of being an innocent miss in this novel. Whilst  Felton was a gentleman, I loved that he push her boundaries. They were meant for each other. Thea wasn’t dazzled by the ton, she wanted happiness and Henry gave her just that.

It was sweet ending for her and whilst it left us with a lord with a  supposedly broken heart, I dont’ think Quince did this lightly. Henry wasn’t influenced by the factors at play. He saw Thea for who she was and  her charms. I think she need this given how she had been influenced by Lucy and her family.  They meant well but Thea need to stand up and seize the day. It maybe  unconventional but it was perfect story to see Thea get her happiness.

AUTHOR INFORMATION:

 

Dayna Quince was only fourteen when she developed a serious addiction to romance novels. What began as an innocent desire to read became an all-out obsession with the romance genre. She gave book reports on romance novels, got in trouble for reading during lectures, and would rather spend her time reading than attending high school parties. After all, high school boys could not compete with the likes of Stephanie Laurens Devil Cynster. After getting her first job, her addiction only got worse. She now had her own money to spend and a car to get to Barnes and Noble as frequently as she wanted. She managed to maintain a somewhat normal life, marrying her high school boyfriend who was aware he was competing with fictional men for her attention. Dayna soon began writing her own romance novels, inspired by her love for all things romance. Dayna and her husband live in Southern California with their two children and three fur babies. Dayna is happiest at home where she can be with her family and write to her heart’s content.
