Today it's my pleasure to help kick off the BlogTour for The Daughter of River Valley by Victoria Cornwall, which is the third in the Cornish Tales series. It's a story about an unusual love growing from an unexpected and violent encounter.

About the Author

About the book
Beth Jago appears to have the idyllic life, she has a trade to earn a living and a cottage of her own in Cornwall’s beautiful River Valley. Yet appearances can be deceptive …

Beth has a secret. Since inheriting her isolated cottage she has been receiving threats, so when she finds a man in her home she acts on her instincts. One frying pan to the head and she has robbed the handsome stranger of his memory and almost killed him.

Brought together by unknown circumstances, and fearful he may die, she reluctantly nurses the intruder back to health. Yet can she trust the man with no name who has entered her life, or is he as dangerous as his nightmares suggest? As they learn to trust one another, the outside threats worsen. Are they linked to the man with no past? Or is the real danger still outside waiting … and watching them both?

Beth lives in the cottage that once belonged to her grandfather. She is in a vulnerable position as a single woman in a cottage in the middle of nowhere. Nobody to hear her screams if someone decides to harm her or try to take advantage of her. It isn't much of a surprise that she feels she needs to defend her house and honour with any means possible, which is how an unconscious man ends up on the floor of her cottage.

Unfortunately the extremely well placed bash on the head has caused some damage to the intruder. He no longer remembers who he is, why he is there and where the heck he came from. The man without a name soon feels as if he needs to protect Beth, especially from the thugs who are trying to drive her from the only real home she has ever known.

This book is part of a series called Cornish Tales by Victoria Cornwall.The author combines the beauty of the scenery with tales of survival, despair and romance. You can feel the influence of Poldark and the unforgettable imagery of Cornwall, which flows into this tale of independence and the solitary struggle of a single woman in that era.

A tale that speaks of the divide between the rich and the poor, and the protection each of those groups gives to members of their own group or social class. However both groups still adhere to archaic societal rules, regardless of how hypocritical they may seem.

This is to romance what the romcom is to chic-lit. It's an easy read, and the author tells the story without resorting to erotic encounters or gratuitous violence. This kind of read has a firm place in the romance genre, because it caters to readers who enjoy the spark without wanting the forbidden fruit of the breathless bodice-ripper.

Buy The Daughter of River Valley at Amazon Uk or go to Goodreads for any other retailer.
