    I recieved this book from Bethany House to review. I was really excited since I love books by Bethany House and the writers who write for them. Hidden Affections by Delia Parr was a first read of her works for me. Parr begins her story with a surprising opening plot. The characters a...

    The picture on the back cover of this book was all I needed to see to make me look forward to reading this book. The picture shows a pair of chairs in front of a warm fireplace. The reader is looking through a frosty window on a cold day, but the scene inside is warm, cozy and romantic...

    Hidden Affections by Delia Parr is a novel that whisks you away and when it's over you wish you could go back for more. Set in 1831, Annabelle Tyler and Harrison Graymoor are in a rather sticky situation. Not only are they handcuffed together, but they are being forced, at gun-point...

    This is an historical romance and an "inspirational" romance. I seem to be reading a disproportionate amount of these in my eclectic reading of late. This is an excellent example of the genre. However, there are a couple of reasons that this, for me, is not a 5-star book. While my g...

    3.5 stars Period films are some of my absolute favorite things to watch because they bring back a time gone by when life seemed a bit more slower and a lot more romantic. It's the same for historical fiction, everything just seemed more romantic. Realistically speaking I know that 200...

    A clean romance that brings one man out of his shell and gives a kind woman a second chance at love after divorce. Sweet in the telling. ...

    The plot premise to ?Hidden Affections? grabbed my attention and that coupled with a great cover (smile), I decided to give the book a try. The first half of the story was intriguing, watching these polar opposite characters, thrust into a marriage of convenience, of the most ex...

    First of all, I was very taken by the cover. Typically this kind of fiction has the same basic cover: a young woman, made up to look like she lived in a certain historical period, holding some sort of prop and smiling saucily at the camera, or if it is even older fiction- her head may ...

    I really enjoyed this third book written by Delia Parr. Hidden Affections is a sweet love story about two people who don?t want to fall in love ever again, because they both have lost in love. It talks about divorce in the 1800?s, which wasn?t something that was done and when...

    One thing I've noticed from reading two of Delia Parr's novels is that she really can create some intriguing plots! Hidden Affections is the story of a forced marriage between Annabelle Tyler and Harrison Graymoor. From the very beginning the reader is thrown into a mixed-up world wher...

    DISCLOSURE: I was provided a copy of Hidden Affections by the publisher Bethany House. I was not paid nor required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own. I thought this book was going to be the typical boy meets girl and Oops!, they find themselves ...

    ?Annabelle Tyler may have hoped she would marry again someday, but she never dreamed she would be wearing handcuffs during the ceremony when she did.? Ah I love a good opening line to a novel and I would say that Delia Parr?s Hidden Affections delivers that attention grabber open...

    After reading Hearts Awakening, Delia Parr was poised to be one of my new favorite writers. I was dismayed but not dissuaded by her scant three novels that piqued my interest, might I add I most certainly judge a book by its cover while ordering online. Quickly ordering the other two, ...

    I thought this was a cute book. Our Heroine has been through so much but she is so sweet. I love that she hasn't become bitter but truly wants to do good wherever she can. Our Hero needs some major work, he is so arrogant at first. It is fun to see his heart soften and watch him become...

    Charming period read. I enjoyed the atmosphere & the plot. I would have enjoyed the characters digging a little deeper or expressing themselves a bit more so I could better know them, but ah well. The spiritual moments felt a tad preachy, but I usually skim over those anyway. ...

    I had a really hard time getting into this book. I found the characters difficult to identify with and connect to, so I had trouble understanding their motivations (or lack thereof). I also found the ending very unsatisfying. (view spoiler)[Harrison's sudden declaration of love and Ann...
