Do you love the Regency period? Love a good romance set during that historical time? If you love Jane Austen, Sarah Ladd, and Julie Klassen, then here is a new author for you to try. In Starving Hearts, Janine Medenhall creates a richly layered time piece that has so many conflicts keeping the hero and heroine apart I wondered how they could ever find their way together. It’s a time that is raw and different from our own. The social graces cover an attitude that finds little value in women other than as a pawn or something to be traded away. Annette dreams of more, but it’s unlikely to happen because her mother is determined to have her way. The hero is the second son with little control over his life. These two must fight for the freedom to be who they want. Readers who love Regency romance will really enjoy this new author. Be prepared to step back in time!

Will Annette’s search for love and acceptance replace the loss and hurt in her heart? Find out in Janine Mendenhall’s book one, Starving Hearts, of the Triangular Trade Trilogy. Since her assault, Miss Annette Chetwynd has been plagued by nightmares and worries about an arranged marriage. But she yearns to find her anonymous rescuer. Unfortunately, her health and intellect prevent it. Both repel suitors and cause Annette to doubt God’s existence, at least until He answers her prayers in an unusual way. . . .
