When I read "Winter Garden" by Adele Ashworth, I thought it was the best book I had read in a long time and wrote her to tell her so and she was kind enough to write back to thank me. But, I was wrong, her book "My Darling Caroline" is ranked right up there with "Winter Garden."
The book is about Caroline, a brilliant botonist, who is denied admission to study at Oxford university because of her gender. She is admitted to Columbia University in America only because she told them she was a man, but her father had different ideas. He has arranged a marriage for Caroline to the Lord of Weymerth, a man who has just returned from war.
To say the least, Brent and Caroline are both opposed to this marriage. Caroline has all intentions of having the marriage annuled so that she can travel to America to attend Columbia and Brent, the Lord of Weymerth, is marrying only to get back some of his property and horses, which he breeds. But fate has other plans for them.
The story takes off from there. Adele Ashworth delves into their minds and we get to know Caroline and Brent and come to care for them as dearly as they come to care for each other. I have never read dialogue between the hero and heroine that was so moving and so mezmerizing that it brought tears to my eyes more than once. The scene where they consumate their marriage is so sweet, I had to read it more than once. The book takes hold of you from the very first page and only gets better.
I'm an avid romance reader and go through about three books per week, which I think is good considering I have a full time job. I have to say that I read "My Darling Caroline" in two days. I just couldn't let go. I felt the same about "Winter Garden."
As far as I'm concerned, Adele Ashworth is some kind of writer and my hat is off to her. She can't write fast enough for me.
Please do yourself a favor and read her books - you surely won't be sorry.

Have you ever finished a romance novel and thought, this is how it is supposed to be done, this is how I am supposed to feel? I am supposed to feel that I know the main characters intimately, I am supposed to feel their pain, and rejoice at their happiness. That is how I felt when I read the last page of this book and I realized that, unless something truly strange happened and Adele Ashworth starts writing very differently, I will always buy her books, because this is how romance is supposed to be written.
Caroline Grayson is not simply intelligent, she is brillant and wonderfully talented with plants. Ever since she discovered her affinity for flowers, she has wanted to study botany with her idol who is a professor at Oxford University. However, when she is cruely dismissed because she is female, she disguises her gender and applies, and is accepted, to study in New York.
However, things don't go as planned when her father announces that she must marry Brent Ravenscroft, an impoverished lord who has come to her father to demand the return of property which was improperly sold to him when Brent went off to war. Caroline's father tells Brent that he must marry Caroline in order to get back what was sold, throwing both of them into a relationship that neither desired. Caroline believes, since Brent doesn't want to marry her anyway, that she can simply get an annulment and fulfill her dream by going to New York. Of course, things don't work out quite that way...
What follows is a truly touching story about what it means to love and be loved. The pain, excitement, and healing that often goes with falling in love with a person who truly is meant for you.
The most amazing thing about this book, and other Ashworth titles like Winter Garden, are the characters. The reader has the joy of watching two people who had planned different futures for themselves, ultimately find happiness and love. Both have emotional scars, Caroline from growing up brillant, but limited by her gender, and Brent from dealing with his family. I was touched when Ashworth described the pain Caroline felt when she had to stand outside classrooms in order to learn more about the science she so loved, enduring comments about her feminity. So often authors tell us that a heroine is intelligent, but so few show it as well as Ashworth. Thank you Adele Ashworth for giving us romance readers such a wonderful and moving story. For those of you who find yourself without something to read, and have not all ready devoured this book like I and so many other have, or for those of you who simply wonder what all the fuss is about, read this book. It's magic.

because it was entertaining although I thought the pacing was a little off at times and the dialogue a bit stilted and quite modern in some instances. However, I am always willing to overlook modern dialogue and an over-used plot as long as the author manages to keep me interested for 338 pages and Ms. Ashworth certainly accomplished that.
Caroline Grayson is a gifted botanist with the unladylike dream of traveling to America to study botany at Columbia University. However, her dream is shattered when her father announces that she's to be wed to the Earl of Weymerth. The Earl is also being forced to wed in order to obtain back his estate that was sold from under him while he was in the continent battling Napoleon.Caroline sees this a brilliant opportunity to put her plan into motion. She plans to wed the handsome earl and then ask him for an anullment (sp?). To her mind this should be a simple thing to do since she does not care for him and he certainly doesn't care for her. What Caroline never considered was that the Earl might want a wife and that she might end up wanting to be a wife to him thereby giving up the dream of a lifetime.
This arranged marriage plot is certainly overused in historicals but in this book the author makes it work. As I understand this was the author's first book so that might explain the sometimes ackward pacing of the story. I disliked the extraneous plot involving an assassin from the hero's past. It seemed that it was inserted into the story as an after thought and did not really mesh with the love story being told. Also, there were many characters like Davis the horse trainer and Caroline's sisters that appeared in one or two scenes and were never to be seen or heard from again with no explanation. Another quibble was having two characters named Charlotte (one was the hero's sister and the other the heroines!) which made it very confusing. Also, the dialogue at times sounded much too modern for a novel set in the Regency period, this is a minor problem but it did jolt me out of the story a few times. Having said that, I have to admit that this was quite a love story and it does not really suffer all that much from the things I have listed above. The romance and the way the author turned overused plot devices and made them unique to her story was able to make up for those shortcomings very well.For example, the hero and heroine recognize their love early on which I found very unusual and the requisite big-misunderstanding is not dragged on interminably.Overall, this was a very satisfying read and I will be looking foward to reading this author's other works. :-)

I don't do a lot of reviews. I have to either love a book or hate it. I hated this one. I actually hated this book so much, I deleted it off my Kindle. The only reason that I gave it two stars instead of one is that there were parts I loved.

Warning: Here be spoilers

Okay, the good: I was attracted to the idea of a super intelligent heroine, not just a smart woman, but a true genius. Sadly, the author doesn't fully pull this feat off. I was moved by the story of all Caroline has suffered for her science was very moving. The author's style is easy to read and the intimate scenes were well done. I was also excited to see a deaf character portrayed, something seriously lacking in historical novels.

Now the bad: There were so many historical inaccuracies pulling me out of the story that I wanted to beat my head on my desk. It wasn't just a single one, but one on top of another. Everytime someone used the word "sexy" I cringed. Ugh. Seriously, two minutes spent on etymology would have fixed that.

Instead of enjoying the deaf character, I was angry at the portrayal. She wasn't a person. She was a plot device and once she was magically "fixed" by the heroine (she goes from complete savage to fluent in sign in no time at all) then she stops appearing on the page except when needed to move the plot. Grr!

There is a ridiculous spy plot and by ridiculous, I mean that my cats would make better spies than these people. The whole thing is absurd and overwrought. It is shoe-horned into the rest of the plot and every time the story veers off into spyland, it crashes and burns. The book would have been so much stronger without all the spy nonsense.

Then there is the bossy, idiotic hero who apparently doesn't mind his daughter living in filth since he thinks she is mentally disturbed. Yeah, that excuses everything. And the way he treats the heroine so cruelly at the end because she has hurt his feelings, so that makes it okay. And the heroine. Oh, how I hated Caroline. She is the total Mary Sue, perfect in every regard--minus the part where she keeps plotting to run away and abandon her husband and step-daughter.

Throw in a strange, creepy ending where the father and sister reveal how they plotting to force two complete strangers into marriage because they were perfect for each other, looooooooooong psycho-babble monologues from the characters which would have made Freud proud, and a resolution which requires and extraordinary number of coincidences and I was bitterly disappointed.

This was a very enjoyable book. Caroline is extremely intelligent but limited by the boundaries of society. She's the one that doesn't fit in, and she's okay with that. Brent is mysterious, with scars from his past and a deep-seated mistrust of women. These two meet for the second time on their wedding day and both come to the marriage with their own ideas on what the future holds. Caroline's independence clashes constantly with Brent's high-handedness and it was a joy to get to know them as they got to know each other. There was conflict between them to a minor degree throughout the book, but the major conflict toward the end of the book was extremely well written and my emotions were fully engaged, anxious to know how it would be resolved. I'm glad I read this book and I hope to be reading more of her books soon!
