This HaBO is from Atiqah, who wants to find this historical romance: I don’t remember exact specifics. All that I can fully remember is that the heroine and hero are in different social classes. The heroine is in a committee of laborer/workers (?) where they’re trying to make a petition on something. The heroine has to paste all these posters of the petition around town, (she has a friend or a companion, I think). The hero’s an aristocrat (very North and South) and he’s so fascinated with the heroine that he helps her to put up those flyers or something? They were both attracted to each other, but kept resisting it. There was a scene where the hero went to visit a village, the heroine accompanied, a fire happened, they had to put out the fire, and all I remember are pails of water. Hopefully someone recognizes this book because it is killing me. Wow, that escalated quickly!

How to Ruin a Duke How to Ruin a Duke by Grace Burrowes and Theresa Romain is 99c! This is a duo of historical romance novellas that features artists of some sort (musicians and writers).

Rhapsody for Two by Theresa Romain Rowena Fairweather, a builder of stringed instruments, is facing a difficult future. Simon Thorn is a musician fleeing his past.

This HaBO request is from Amina, who is looking for a romantic fantasy book: I am DYING to find this book. It’s a fantasy with romantic elements or a strong romantic subplot. The heroine is shy and isolated. She is the priestess or caretaker for the town temple; the townspeople are afraid of her and mean to her. One day a wounded, hot guy is left at back of her temple door. She takes him in and nurses him back to health. The townspeople shun her for it . In fact, she’s in danger from them for taking him in and helping him they even go to such lengths as to potentially (?) stone her and shame her publicly. The hot guy she healed rescues her and takes her away. She thinks he’s a regular soldier, but at the end of book, he takes her to the city and she finds out he’s part of the royal family or he’s a noble. She rides into town on a horse with him dressed in rags or not too well and feels embarrassed to be taken to the palace. I think she has red hair and the guy is tall with dark…

B- Promise of Darkness by Bec McMaster September 17, 2019 · Lochaber Press Pty Ltd Fantasy/Fairy Tale Romance Promise of Darkness is a fantasy romance that intrigued me with its Gothic elements and excellent worldbuilding. The tone of the novel shifted midway leaving its Gothic premise behind for something more fantasy-adventure driven. While that shift felt abrupt and pulled me out of the novel momentarily, I was so invested in the plot it was fairly easy to jump back in. I will warn readers that this book ends with a HFN not a HEA and that the series is not complete yet. I’ve enjoyed Bec McMaster’s steampunk romances in the past so I was excited when I saw she was starting a new series set in a fantasy world populated by faerie creatures. McMaster excels at worldbuilding and Promise of Darkness is no exception to that. Her fantasy world is richly developed, has consistent rules that govern it, and those details are woven into the narrative seamlessly so the reader doesn’t get pulled out by info-dump. Princess Iskvien is the daughter of the ruthless Seelie Queen of Thorns. Her mother has kept a tenuous peace with the other Seelie and…
