Prepare to fall in love with Ariana and her cohorts in this Christian Regency. From her home in the village of Chesterton to the very ballroom of Carlton House, readers will follow her journey of faith--and adventure--to its heartwarming conclusion. In her debut novel of what she calls "spirited romance for the Jane Austen soul," author Linore Rose Burkard tells the intriguing story of Miss Ariana Forsythe, a young woman caught between her love for a man who doesn't share her faith and her resolution to marry only a fellow believer in Christ.

Trouble at home sends the young woman to her aunt's townhome in the fashionable Mayfair district of London. There she finds worse troubles than those that prompted her flight from home. Ariana is soon neck-deep in high society and at odds with Mr. Phillip Mornay, London's current darling rogue. Then a scandal changes Ariana forever. Her heart, her faith, and her future are all at stake in an unexpected adventure that gains even the Prince Regent's attention.

Will Ariana's faith survive this test? And what about her heart? For it's Ariana's heart that most threatens to betray the truths she has always believed in. When she finds herself backed against a wall, betrothed to the wrong young man, how can it ever turn out right?

Jane Austen readers and fans of Regency romances everywhere will love "Before the Season Ends."

You are transported to...

You are transported to London where upper class has their standards. But love does not care about Society standards. Ariana would have married the wrong person had not her parents sent her to her Aunt's house. Her Aunt had no children and wanted to introduce someone into society. I especially loved where Phillip finds Ariana in a tree she climbed and he shielded her from eyes of Society. I believe one knows when they are drawn to someone - their soul-mate. I loved all the circumstances that put Ariana and Phillip together. The unfolding of the story from beginning to end holds your attention. Ariana is torn between love and her beliefs. But as one who took a chance on a new christian knowing God put us together, this part I know first hand. I highly recommend you prepare for an adventure.

I really enjoyed this ...

I really enjoyed this story. I've never read Jane Austen so the whole omniscient POV thing was a bit challenging at first. But once I got the hang of it I was totally pulled in to the story and fell in love with the characters. I am looking forward to the next book.

Written in the Jane Au...

Written in the Jane Austin era and with her style. It is a story of Ariana Forsythe, who is sent to her Aunt Bentley's home in London. Her Aunt is out to find her a suitable husband, but never did either one of them think it would turn out to be the rogue, Mr. Phillip Mornay. But there is a problem that is keeping Ariana from a future with Phillip. I really liked the style of writing and the way Ariana was portrayed and how she stood by her convictions.

Perfect for : Personal...

Perfect for : Personal reading, book club read (Contains Discussion Questions) In a nutshell: A wonderful Regency Romance, set in England in 1813, with the added benefit of a little faith added in. Ariana, the 19-year-old strong-willed daughter of the Forsythe's, has determined that she is going to marry the 60 year old village rector! In an act of desperation, her parents send her to her Aunt in London for a season. When she gets to London, at her first real outing, she bumps into Mornay, the man her Aunt has told her to avoid! This is a charming faith-focused Regency romance that is sure to be a favorite for Regency romance readers! Extended Review: Characters: We follow Ariana on her adventures in London where she is sent to stay with her Aunt . . . and where she makes the acquaintance of the season's confirmed bachelor, Mornay. I really enjoyed Mornay's character - as he actually took an interest in helping Ariana, and as he transformed into a better person throughout the book. Story-Line: The author has included many wonderful details from the era to help the reader easily visualize what is happening in the story. In true Regency-form, the main character Ariana goes to London to have a season, where she will participate in the rounds of dinners, balls and parties where many of the ton will try to make a successful marriage match. Readability: For me, the book was an easy read, even with over 330 pages. I've read many Regency romances, so I am very familiar with the words used during that time (ton, tendre, fustian, etc), but for those who aren't, the author has included a wonderful glossary at the end of the book! Overall: A delightful Regency with an emphasis on faith and values! I sure hope Ms. Burkard has another Inspirational Regency Romance on the way!
