One Fine Duke One Fine Duke by Lenora Bell is $1.99! This is part of the School for Dukes series and I think we featured in on Cover Awe for the lovely dreamy quality of the cover. Though of course, if you have allergies, you may disagree. Readers enjoyed the adventure elements, but at times felt they overshadowed the romance. Ready. Raised in the countryside by her overprotective uncle, Miss Mina Penny’s dream of a triumphant London season is finally here. She determined her perfect match long ago: Rafe Bentley, the wickedest rake of them all. There’s only one very large, very unyielding obstacle: Rafe’s brother Andrew, the reclusive Duke of Thorndon. Aim. This was supposed to be simple. Duke goes to London. Duke selects suitable bride. Love match? Not a chance. But when Drew meets Mina, she complicates everything. How can a lady armed with such beauty and brains fall for his irresponsible degenerate of a brother? Drew vows to save her from heartbreak and ruin, no matter the cost. Desire! But Mina is no damsel in distress. She’s daring, intuitive, passionate…and halfway to melting Drew’s cold heart. And although Mina thought she knew exactly what she wanted, one breathtakingly seductive…

C- The Lady and the Highwayman by Sarah Eden September 2, 2019 · Shadow Mountain Historical: European Bitchery, I have a conundrum. I loved this book, then I hated this book, then I softened, and now I don’t know how I feel. First, the parts I loved: In its favour, we have a wonderful heroine in Miss Elizabeth Black, the headmistress of a school for middle-class girls in Victorian London. However, Elizabeth has more strings to her bow than the general public realise. Not only does she write ‘high brow’ silver spoon novels, but she also writes… GASP… penny dreadfuls published under the nom de plume Mr King. Also, in its favour, we have a wonderful hero in Mr Fletcher Walker, a street urchin, who through luck and endeavour has become a penny dreadful author and the figurehead of the Dreadful Penny Society, a group of penny dreadful authors who do ‘good works’. Fletcher and Elizabeth cross paths at a literary salon in the opening pages of the book and sparks FLY. Elizabeth isn’t bothered in the slightest that Fletcher is ‘beneath’ her and he adores her wit and candour. Their chemistry is Very Clear and consistently enjoyable throughout the…
