Gloved Heart had me hooked by the first few pages. While reading you can often see moments when they should have had the courage to say things to each other but the politeness of the times gets in the way, but it makes for a brilliant love story. This lovely romance set in regency times is perfect for fans of this genre. I adored this story.

GLOVED HEART by Charlotte Brentwood strips away the pretenses of the privileged and highlights what true happiness really is, not one station in life, but one’s perception of what a quality life is. A different take on historical romance, both fresh and full of heart, this one is a true reading treasure chest gem!
I liked the two main characters and felt bad for Amy with all of the trauma she had experienced. I really enjoyed the scenes with her son and the sweet love she had for him. The hero of the story was nice, as well, and I couldn’t help but hope things would finally work out for the two of them. There were many interesting characters in this book and an enjoyable regency setting.

This is the second book in the HEARTS OF AMBERLEY series, but you can read it as a standalone. You'll love these books if you're a fan of Jane Austen, Georgette Heyer, Carla Kelly or Downton Abbey.
