Embracing Amelia is a historical fiction romance by Elaine Violette. A competent horse rider since childhood, Amelia Pierce dreamed of competing in equestrian tournaments like her brother, Roderick. However, as the daughter of the Earl of Weatherly, Amelia was resigned to a life of waiting to be married off to a man of high status. When Roderick catches Amelia and Lucas Grey, the bastard son of the Duke of Radford, stumbling around in the hay while searching for Amelia's missing emerald ring, he assumes the worst. Amelia's enraged father sends her to London to find a suitable match. Fortuitously, Amelia meets Lucas again, and the two feel instantly drawn to each other. But now, Lucas is arrested for stealing the ring, and Amelia is forced to marry Viscount Frederick Blakely. Will Lucas and Amelia find a way to be together?
If you enjoy Regency-era romance novels, Embracing Amelia is just the book you're looking for. Author Elaine Violette spins a captivating romance with humor and heart. With vibrant characters and an engaging plot, Violette weaves an absorbing love story that pulls at your heartstrings and leaves you wanting more. The plot has its share of twists and turns, but it is the characters who truly steal the show. Violette's characters are well-rounded, with underlying layers to their outward personas. Lucas's backstory brings a lot of depth to his character, and his relationship with Amelia is, without a doubt, the book's primary highlight for me—a treat for readers of Regency romance novels.
