Publisher's Description

"Verity Hatherleigh has a mind of her own--but her impulsive actions do not impress her viscount papa. When she gets into one scrape too many, he sends her off to the wilds of Scotland to rethink her headstrong ways.

Anthony Jardine relished his role as curate, but his new duties as laird of Dungally aren't always to his liking. Though he thought his new inheritance would be a blessing, somehow he's finding nothing but trouble on these estates. And the intelligent, compassionate, feisty lass who was sent to rusticate in his territory is one of the biggest problems. He's falling in love with her, but she doesn't share the faith that's his foundation--not to mention he's been lying to her about who he really is. For the truth-loving Verity, that may be unforgivable.

The tangled web these two have woven may spell disaster for their happiness--and for the tenants of Dungally."

My Review

Misleading Miss Verity, by Carolyn Miller, is the third book in the Regency Brides: Daughters of Aynsley series. Within the pages of this wonderful book, Ms. Miller has once again succeeded in creating a truly stunning, immensely enjoyable novel! Set in Scotland during the Regency era, this story captivates with its charming blend of wit, romance, and faith. This well-researched, well-written novel absolutely immerses the reader in the history and culture of the time period while offering a genuinely intriguing plot that is exceedingly clever and character-driven. 

This novel creatively explores the themes of love, faith, compassion, and purpose through a varied cast of unforgettable characters who are richly developed and compelling. The characters are vulnerable and thoughtful. They possess a genuine believability that makes them very relatable and sympathetic. Their struggles, insecurities, fears, and beliefs are authentic and moving. Their fortitude and determination in the face of uncertainty and injustice is wholly inspiring.

Misleading Miss Verity is a story of grace and new beginnings. Brimming with humor and fresh perspectives, it is a story of perseverance, kindness, and the power of unconditional love. Memorable, uplifting, and utterly worthy, Misleading Miss Verity is honest, tender, emotionally stirring, and thoroughly entertaining. I recommend it wholeheartedly.

About the Author

"Hi, I'm Carolyn Miller, author of 'The Elusive Miss Ellison'.

I live in the beautiful Southern Highlands of New South Wales, Australia.

I'm married, with four gorgeous children, who all love to read (and write!) as I do (except not in the Regency genre - funny, that!).

My favourite authors are classics like Jane Austen (of course!), Georgette Heyer, and Agatha Christie, but I also enjoy contemporary authors like Susan May Warren and Becky Wade.

I try to write stories that are fun and witty, yet also deal with real issues, such as dealing with forgiveness, the nature of really loving versus 'true love', and other challenges we all face at different times.

I hope you enjoy reading my novels. Thanks for stopping by!" --Biography from Carolyn Miller's author page on Amazon.com.
