Lady Edith’s Lonely Heart

(Lonely Hearts #1)

Audrey Harrison

Lord Ralph Pensby/Lady Edith Longdon

Published: February 26, 2020
5 star
My Rating: 5/5


A dashing tale of romance from a bestselling author of Regency Romance.

She is under pressure to find a husband she doesn’t want.

He keeps to the fringes of society because of family constraints.

Will the written word be enough to bring two lost souls together?

Lady Edith Longdon is an heiress, in danger of being classed a spinster, and disillusioned with the fops, dandies, and fortune hunters surrounding her in society. Deciding it’s time to take her future into her own hands, she devises a foolproof way of finding someone she can love. She’s convinced nothing could go wrong…

Lord Ralph Pensby, overwhelmed by a sense of obligation, and with no one he can turn to, is adrift from those around him…

Two people drawn together, both on a journey which will affect them in ways they could never have foreseen. Secret correspondence, mistrust and confusion, not to mention cads of the highest order, make this novel a fast-paced, heart-warming story, with appealing characters and a strong sense of time and place.

Perfect for lovers of all things Regency.


Lady Edith’s Lonely Heart is the first book I’ve had the pleasure to read by author Audrey Harrison and it won’t be the last. It was a wonderful story and I look forward to checking out the rest of her books.

Lady Edith Longdon is considered past her prime at the age of twenty-three. She’s spent three years in mourning due to her father and her two brother’s deaths. Not impressed with the men she’s come across as possible suitors, Edith decides to place an ad in the newspaper for a more suitable match.

Lord Ralph Pensby’s mother has an illness that prevents him from leaving her side for too long. While in London he spends time with his only friend, Miles Stanley, Earl of Longdon. When Ralph gets to know Miles’s sister Edith, he wishes his circumstances were different so that he might have a life he only dreams of.

I really enjoyed this couple and their storyline! I liked Edith, she’s intelligent, beautiful, brave, and has a good sense of humor with a great personality. I enjoyed her relationship with her brother Miles and the witty dialogue between them. I also admired her for trying to take control of her own destiny, even though placing an ad was risky for her. As for Ralph, he’s a good son who has sacrificed his happiness for his mother. You sense his desolation and loneliness and yet when he’s around Edith he comes to life! She challenges him, makes him laugh and it’s obvious there is an attraction. I hoped Edith would be able to help him see they belonged together. Ralph’s mother was a fantastic character and I loved her interactions with Edith and Ralph. I would love to see a sequel to this story for Miles and Susan and hopefully, get a glimpse of this couple again along with Ralph’s mother! Ralph and Edith were such a great couple and I absolutely loved the letters he penned to Edith! They were heartfelt and showed a sign of Ralph that made me fall for him myself!

Ms. Harrison wrote a fabulous story for this couple with wonderful secondary characters. I enjoyed her writing style and will look forward to checking out her backlist. A fantastic, sweet Regency story and a new author to follow, highly recommend it!

Audrey Harrison


Audrey was born about two hundred years too late. She wants to belong to a time when men were men and women were dressed in gowns and could float, simper and sigh.

In the real world she has always longed to write, writing a full manuscript when she was fourteen years old. Work, marriage and children got in the way as they do and it was only when an event at work landed her in hospital that she decided to take stock. One Voluntary Redundancy later, she found that the words and characters came to the forefront and the writing began in earnest.

So, although at home more these days, the housework is still neglected and meals are still late on the table, but she has an understanding family, who usually shake their heads at her and sigh. That is a sign of understanding, isn’t it?
