Product Description

Winner of Best Novel and Best Romance Novel - 2013 Whitney Awards

Kate Worthington knows her heart and she knows she will never marry. Her plan is to travel to India instead — if only to find peace for her restless spirit and to escape the family she abhors. But Kate’s meddlesome mother has other plans. She makes a bargain with Kate: India, yes, but only after Kate has secured — and rejected — three marriage proposals.

 Kate journeys to the stately manor of Blackmoore determined to fulfill her end of the bargain sooner rather than later and enlists the help of her dearest childhood friend, Henry Delafield. But when it comes to matters of love, bargains are meaningless and plans are changeable. There on the wild lands of Blackmoore, Kate must face the truth that has kept her heart captive. Will the proposal she is determined to reject actually be the one thing that will set her heart free?

Set in Northern England in 1820, Blackmoore is a regency romance that tells the story of a young woman struggling to learn how to follow her heart.

“Readers will be absolutely captivated by the beautiful imagery, sizzling tension, and mesmerizing plot.” — Publisher's Weekly

Blackmoore is light and easy to read, perfect for a day at the beach or over tea and crumpets served in the best china.” — Foreward Reviews

Yep! This book I finished at five in the morning! Bad decision to start this one before bed because you won't actually go to bed! Then I took 10 minutes to reread all of my favorite parts! I will consider myself Blackmoored! Yep-made that phrase up right along with the phrase Edenbrooked.The romance was amazing!!! It was the kind of romance where you are squirming from the cuteness! I was about half way through this book when I realized I was actually smiling at my kindle. I laughed, I sighed...remembering my favorite parts makes my heart race a bit! :) I bet you anything you'll LOVE this book!

I have been anxiously awaiting this book since i read Edenbrooke last summer. I preordered Blackmoore from Deseret book a few weeks ago expecting it to arrive sometime after the september release date and somehow it arrived on my doorstep three days ago. Best surprise ever! Needless to say, I've already finished and I loved every delicious minute of it. Awesome, awesome, awesome! Her writing is engaging and exciting without anything that might make the reader uncomfortable. True romance. Love her writing and can't wait for more!

A  magical, achingly beautiful love story

In this Regency story, it is not that love is unrequited, but it is unrealized.  It tells about a love that twines two hearts together to the degree that separate confines are indistinguishable.  Yet, that very love is only in the world of impossibilities.

In Blackmoore, Julianne Donaldson has created a character tapestry so intricate it is nearly impossible to distinguish between it and the living, breathing article.  How do you know what you want if you have never experienced or seen its existence? If you don't recognize where you want to go, you will never recognize when you arrive.

Sweet, achingly beautiful, heart-wrenching, and not to be missed!
