Blog Tour: Riveting His Attention by @maywilliams2 #giveaway and #review

Historical Romance
Date Published: March 17, 2014

Lady Ella Harwich is capricious. At least that’s what her older brother thinks. However, when it comes to Jim Ferguson, Lady Ella is quite serious. One long, lingering kiss put Jim at the center of her romantic desires and at the top of her list of suitors. And she plans to keep him there. Unfortunately, Jim wants off her list because of a secret past, a career as a shipbuilder instead of a gentleman, and his own inability to resist her. Proving her love—and his worthiness for her love—is Ella’s only way to rivet his attention.

My Review

I want to start off by saying how unique I think this cover is. It shows Historical Romance in a way that is different than most novels like it. Its really beautiful!

The characters are very different than what I am used to in Historical novels, which I really enjoyed. There were so many elements to this novel that really surprised me, in a great way. 

I liked how easy this read was. Sometimes when reading Historical I feel like I have to think a bit. I'm not a history buff and so sometimes things go over my head, but May Williams has done a great job of writing in a way that makes reading effortless.

May loves romance. Big pink roses, chocolate hearts, sunset walks, but, most of all, she loves romance novels. She’s been reading romances since she first discovered the public library where the librarians didn't notice or didn't care what she was checking out even though she hadn't hit puberty yet.
Since then, May has continued to read every genre of romance, but she writes mostly historical. Places and time periods have stories to tell. And she likes to listen. Her most recent novels are Victorian era pieces where she can imagine beautiful gowns and elegant teas.

When May’s not writing, she manages a houseful of children, pets, and flowers grown in her garden.
