As the third wife of an abusive French vineyard owner, Madeleine Bouchard hasn’t produced the expected heir after three years of marriage. Fearing he plans to kill her, she flees during a trip to England. Unable to make her way home, she joins a troupe of traveling mummers and reinvents herself as the only woman troubadour in the land, captivating audiences with both song and story.



Nobleman Garrett Montayne’s fascination with Madeleine causes him to pay the troupe to bypass their next stop in order to journey to his estate. Though he suspects Madeleine of being a thief with dark secrets, love blossoms between them under the magical moon of summer solstice.



But Madeleine’s past is about to catch up with her, as her husband is set to arrive to conduct business with Garrett. Madeleine determines to free herself from her loveless marriage and make a new life with Garrett, no matter what the cost.


My Review

Four Stars
Music For My Soul by Lauren Linwood was a fantastic story.  I really enjoyed the story, the characters, the secondary characters and the plot!  This was my first time reading Lauren Linwood and I really enjoyed her writing style.  The story was engaging from the very beginning.  Madeleine was a fantastic heroine.  I really enjoyed her and loved her evolution as a character.  Garrett is a wonderful hero! He is the strong and silent type.  He was a perfect match for Madeleine.  As Madeleine tries to escape her abusive husband she finally has a chance to find true love.  I enjoy historical romances so this was a likeable book for me but the characters added to an exciting story.  I plan to read more books by Lauren Linwood! Great historical romance.

Praise for Music For My Soul



"Told with humor, heartache, loveable characters and plenty of adventure, this is a story that grabs your attention from the first page and holds you captive until the very end. Much like real life, MUSIC FOR MY SOUL is a mixture of ups and downs along with a few surprises thrown in just to keep you on your toes." -Romance Junkies, Reviewer Chrissy Dionne



"This story takes a wonderful turn into the seldom explored topic of the life of traveling mummers and musicians. Placing the heroine between the line of aristocracy and commonality is also a stroke of creative genius that makes for a delightful breath of fresh reading air! The characters are created and developed with a fine touch, making the story both believable and enjoyable." -InD’tale Magazine, Reviewer Ruth Lynn Ritter



"This is a marvelous and intricate story of desperation, escape, finding love…also of forgiveness,mystery, danger, and righting old wrongs! The tale is incredibly well told with some humor as well as a building romance. The characters are loveable, some you can hate, and some are comic…a little bit of everything! Lauren Linwood is a wonderful writer with a fantastic imagination. I hope this is only the beginning of many wonderful tales. Believe me, it’s hard to put this one down. I found myself awake until the wee hours of the morning because I just had to know what was going to happen!" -The Reading CafĂ©, Reviewer Georgianna S
