About Behind the Light of Golowduyn
She’s the keeper of Golowduyn Lighthouse. He’s the captain who shipwrecked on her watch. A marriage of convenience can save her home—if secrets don’t destroy it first.
A Regency Romance Cornwall, 1815
Abigail Moore will do anything to keep Golowduyn Lighthouse shining brightly, even if she must do so alone. When a shipwreck occurs near her home one stormy evening—bringing with it a dashing captain keen to offer his aid at every turn—her days of isolation vanish.
Captain Gavin Kendricks didn’t expect to end his naval career by crashing his ship against the rugged cliffs of Cornwall. When he’s pulled from the sea by the fearless and quick-tempered Miss Moore, a tentative friendship forms between them, and he begins to realize what has been missing from his life.
Before either of them can explore these newfound stirrings, death and deception hit Golowduyn, and Abigail is left with a choice. Either she loses everything she has ever loved, or she marries the captain and accepts his help. Unable to give up the lighthouse, she agrees to the union, and they work together to see that the light does not diminish. But when her childhood secrets are unearthed, and their property falls victim to troubling defacement, their marriage threatens to crumble. Gavin fights to gain her confidence, but only Abigail can forget the crippling memories of her past to trust Gavin with Golowduyn—and her heart.
This is the first book in the clean and sweet Regency Cornish Romance series by Deborah M. Hathaway. Although this marriage of convenience, rise-in-status romance is a stand-alone novel, the books are best enjoyed when read in order.
I think this might be my first book by Deborah M Hathaway. But it won’t be my last. This book hooked me from the very first page. And it kept me entranced until the very last page. I didn’t want to put it down!
Abigail is such a great character. She is a hard worker. Abigail has had to take care of everything to do with Golowduyn lighthouse since her uncle was injured. And it’s a lot of hard work and very little sleep. I loved that she wasn’t afraid to take her boat out on the ocean to rescue a couple of men from a shipwreck. And then she brought them back to the lighthouse and went to work helping to fix wounds. Such an amazing woman!
I really loved Gavin as well. He was the captain of the shipwrecked vessel. And, instead of just moving on, he retires and chooses to try to help Abigail just when she needs it the most. He was a little bit dense about some of the other women around, but when he decides to marry Abigail, she becomes his everything. And I loved that about him.
This book was so amazing! I need to read more by this author right away!
Behind the Light of Golowduyn did not disappoint!
