About "A Lady's Honor (#01 in Cliffs Of Cornwall Series)"

Fleeing to Cornwall to escape a forced marriage, highborn Elizabeth Trelawney is helped to elude her pursuers by the rougeish Rouan Curnow. Heading for her true home Bastian Point, Elizabeth must choose between her desire for family approval and her growing love for her unsuitable ally.
- Koorong

Society is concerned about her honor, but Elizabeth must realize her worth doesn't lie in her inheritance. In order to avoid a forced marriage to a dangerous man, Elizabeth Trelawney flees London. An unexpected stranger arrives to help her, and as they elude her pursuers across Cornwall in the night, Elizabeth realizes her rescuer, Rouan Curnow, is familiar. Their differences in social status kept Rouan from pursuing a courtship with the lady his heart wouldn't let him forget. Now because of dangerous smugglers and local murders, the two are plunged into a reckless alliance that rattles Rouan's fledgling faith in God. The closer they get to Bastian Point---Elizabeth's true home---the more she realizes it is the only place she longs to be. Even the sight of its solid structure perched on the cliffs makes her feel safe. Elizabeth is the most likely to inherit Bastian Point if Grandfather never learns she spent the night, however innocently, with a near stranger. As spring warms into summer, Elizabeth finds herself torn between wanting to be the perfect grandchild and her growing love for a man of whom no one will approve as a match for her, a man she knows she shouldn't entirely trust. Unsure whether she is being foolish or following the right path, she sets out with Rouan on a quest to find the true culprit behind the local violence. Their quest leads them to danger, and she must choose whether to follow the man she loves or cling to the safety of her family home.

I couldn't put it down!
5 stars By Marija, Jun 05 2017
I finished most of this book in one day - I just couldn't put it down! 'A Lady's Honour' has everything you want in a Regency romance: a feisty heroine, a dashing hero, a riveting mystery, a romantic setting, and (of course) a swoon-worthy happy-every-after! Ok, so the plot may be a little far-fetched - but that's to be expected in the genre. At first I thought the 'Christian' theme seemed a little contrived, but overall it had a beautiful message about God's unconditional love. If you are a fan of Georgette Heyer-type regency novels, you definitely have to read this one!

Fast paced, pleasurable read.
5 stars By Jenny Skinner, Oct 12 2014
We are launched into the tumultuous life of Elizabeth Trelawny at a fast pace from the very first sentence. The rest of the story follows at an equally rapid pace that has you turning pages as quickly as you can read. It is a book that you don't want to put down until the satisfying conclusion.
Set predominately along the wild coastline of Cornwall, the ancestry home of the honourable Trelawny family. A lady's Honor explores Piracy and Treachery,  Passion and Love -  both wished for and lost. Faithfulness and Hope, Fear and Secrecy. 
Overall, God is faithful to the prayers of his followers and the family becomes strengthened and united. 
Be prepared... have a few hours up your sleeve so that you can read this book, cleverly written by Laurie Alice Eakes, from cover to cover.

Solid Regency Romance
3 stars By Iola, May 22 2014
It's a fast-paced story of mystery and intrigue as Elizabeth is challenged by her grandparents to find the family treasure. This is the first novel in the new Cliffs of Cornwall series, and it's unusual in that it doesn't have the usual portrayal of smugglers as jolly good fellows who wouldn't harm anyone, popular in gothic romances in years gone by. Eakes's portrayal was uncomfortable in that regard, even if it is more accurate.

I'm also not convinced by the references to Conan Lord Penvenen (which made me think of Conan the Barbarian. Sorry). Shouldn't that be Conan, Lord Penvenen? Or simply Conan, as they are talking about a close family friend?
Despite these faults I did enjoy A Lady's Honor. It was a good combination of suspense, mystery and romance with a strong underlying Christian message about treasure and unconditional love. However, I didn't enjoy it enough to read it again, and I'm not convinced I enjoyed it enough to bother reading the sequel when it comes out.
