A Dream of Redemption Valentines

valentinesregecnyDuring the Regency period people celebrated Valentine’s Day by exchanging hand made cards with heartfelt versus inside. Often made with cloth and lace, it was the thought that counted. Of course the poets of the day had many of their poems copied too! 

I love the idea of handmade cards. Paper was a luxury item in this era so many had to save for the special day. So I suppose, like today, in a way it was about the money.

No mention can be found of cards exchanged between married couples. The giving of cards remained between single adults and went across all classes. The upper class also embraced the practice of Valentine’s Day turning a blind eye to exchanged of cards in a era when letters between unmarried ladies and men was deemed scandalous.

 
Here’s a love lorn note that Clary made for Helen – A DREAM OF REDEMPTION 

You told me that you needed me

That we could face any opposition

To know I have your heart

Our love becomes my mission

You say that you love me

And that you truly care

But it’s I who pledge my heart

Forever it will be yours

I promise we will never part

No matter what life has in store

Because as you tell me every day

Love Truely Conquers All

A forbidden love and a chilling mystery tease the senses in this sensuous historical romance 9780425284247 300x205 1from the USA Today bestselling author of A Kiss of Lies and A Love to Remember.

Bookish and independent Lady Helen Hawkestone is expected to marry well. But, having grown up with warring parents, the institution holds little appeal. The trick, she realizes, is to marry for love—a task that’s easier said than done. Only while Helen is raising funds for her do-gooder sister’s orphanage does she meet a man who arouses her curiosity. Lowborn and yet so dignified that Helen can’t help but try to elicit a response, Clary Homeward is an enigma—a heart-stopping, body-stirring, forget-her-social-upbringing enigma.

A single offense against a noblewoman such as Lady Helen would ruin a man like Clary. Her sister, Marisa, rescued him from hellish poverty and employs him with her charity work. Try as he might to push her away, Helen tempts him to want things he could never have. But when girls from the orphanage start disappearing, destined for a grim fate Clary knows all too well, Helen insists on helping. And soon Clary wonders whether something more were not just possible but inevitable—even right.
