"Engaging Regency romance to sweep you away."--USA Today Happy Ever After Blog

Life for Lady Adelaide Bell was easier if she hid in her older sister's shadow--which worked until her sister got married. Even with thepressure of her socially ambitious mother, the last thing she expected was a marriage of convenience to save her previously spotless reputation.

Lord Trent Hawthorne couldn't be happier that he is not the duke in the family. He's free to manage his small estate and take his time discovering the life he wants to lead, which includes grand plans of wooing and falling in love with the woman of his choice. When he finds himself honor bound to marry a woman he doesn't know, his dream of a marriage like his parents' seems lost forever.

Already starting their marriage on shaky ground, can Adelaide and Trent's relationship survive the pressures of London society?

Love the story line
4 stars By Hayley, May 30 2018
I love the story line. The "wedding first then slowly falling in love while married" story plot is beautiful, predictable (which I love) and real to the setting's era. The characters are adorable, shy and fun. An Uncommon Courtship gives an endearing glimpse into the courting rituals and expectations of the day, as well as christian values in marriage. I would recommend this book to all historical romance lovers. I also like that the characters from previous books in the series are included in the story.

Starting at the end!
3 stars By Rochelle, NSW, Jun 30 2017
I got given this book and didn't realise that it was the 3rd in the Hawthorne House series. 
I don't feel that I missed out on previous stories, which is a sign of a good writer. 
Lord Hawthorne and Lady Adelaide start their life together most awkwardly but with searching and heeding wisdom they find their footing. 
I found some of the moments funny and felt their embarrassment in others.
I hope you enjoy this story. Now to read books 1 and 2!!

Surprising
5 stars By Jacqueline, Mar 01 2017
I was eager to read this book as it is the third one in a series that I love. It started very slow and I was initially disappointed thinking that it wasn't going to be as great as the other ones. I kept reading though and I am so glad I did. It is a different type of romance as Trent and Adelaide are married in the first couple of pages. This actually gave it real depth as they muddle through finding out what it means to be married, what love is and what place family plays in their relationship. It also has all the fun of the regency era. This was a thoroughly enjoyable book to read. I can't wait for the final one in the series now.

A Must for Christian Regency Romance Fans!
5 stars By Iola, Feb 25 2017
An Uncommon Courtship has two awkward characters in an awkward situation, and Hunter tells their story with skill and wit. An Uncommon Courtship is Christian Regency Romance. It follows all the Regency Romance normal conventions, except that both Trent and Abigail are Christians, which gives the plot added depth.

Trent is a true gentleman. He's been forced into this marriage, but is determined to get to know Abigail and turn it into a real marriage. He makes a lot of mistakes, but he's always willing to fix them.

Abigail also makes her share of mistakes, although she isn't as good at fixing them. Not because she doesn't want to, but more because she's spent her life being dominated by her mother and doesn't actually know how to deal with Trent-who is the complete opposite of her unprincipled mother. Mother is a piece of work, and it's good to see both Abigail and Trent learn how to deal with her. 

This is Kristi Ann Hunter's fourth book in this series, and it's as good as the previous stories (and has the advantage of being able to be read as a standalone novel-Trent and Abigail dominate the first part of the novel, while the characters from the earlier stories are reintroduced in the second half).

Thanks to Bethany House and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.
