Penelope ( A Madcap Regency Romance ) (The Fairweather Sisters Book 1) by [Wylde, Anya]

Book Description:

Leaving behind the rural charms of Finnshire, Miss Penelope Fairweather arrives in London with hope in her heart and a dream in her eye. The dowager, no less, has invited her for a season in London, where she will attempt to catch a husband.

Thus begins our heroine’s tale as she attempts to tackle the London season with all her rustic finesse. Unfortunately her rustic finesse turns out to be as delicate as a fat bear trying to rip apart a honeycomb infested with buzzing bees.

What follows is a series of misadventures, love affairs, moonlit balls, fancy clothes, fake mustaches, highwaymen, sneering beauties, pickpockets, and the wrath of a devilishly handsome duke.

My Review:

Penelope is a romantic historical comedy with plenty of witty dialogues and hilarious scenes. It's all about the delightful countrified Penelope and her misadventures as she enters the London season for her first time. Other wonderful characters are a silly goat named Lady Bathsheba, a kindred spirit named Lady Anne, and the scowling Duke of Blackthorne, named Charles Cornelius Radclyff. It's my favorite historical romance of 2017 and I laughed out loud throughout the book. I wouldn't be surprised if it remains my favorite. 

The Fall of Lord Drayson (Tanglewood Book 1) by [Anderson, Rachael]

Book Description:

When Colin Cavendish, the new Earl of Drayson, informs Lucy Beresford that she and her mother need to vacate the house they've called home for the past two years, Lucy is fit to be tied. They have no money, no relations they can turn to for help, and nowhere to go. How dare the earl break the promise his father had made to the Beresfords without so much as a twinge of conscience?

Fate plays her hand when Lucy discovers the earl unconscious and injured in the middle of the road. When he awakens with no recollection of who he is, Lucy seizes the opportunity to teach the earl a much-needed lesson in humility and tells him that he is nothing more than a mere servant. Her servant, in fact.

And thus begins the charming tale of a pompous lord and an impetuous young woman, caught together in a web so tangled that it begs the question: Will they ever get out?

My Review:

The Fall of Lord Drayson is a wonderfully inventive tale where Lucy Beresford, the late-vicar's daughter, turns the tables on Colin Cavendish, the Earl of Drayson, by telling him a wicked lie. She finds him unconscious and discovers that he has lost his memory. When they have a heated exchange of words, she informs him that he is her servant. This lie gets her into quite a lot of emotional trouble, especially when she changes her opinion of him. At one point, she suspects that he knows the truth. Now what will she do? This was an entertaining read with a happily-ever-after.

The Earl's Unsuitable Bride
FREE on Amazon Kindle!

The Earl's Unsuitable Bride: A Sweet & Clean Historical Romance (The Chase Brides Book 1) by [Royal, Lauren, Royal, Devon]

Book Description:

"The Earl’s London Bride” is the SWEET & CLEAN ROMANCE edition of “Amethyst” by Lauren Royal. From a New York Times bestselling author and her daughter!

London, 1666: Amethyst Goldsmith makes dazzling jewelry, but her future isn’t nearly as bright as the pieces she creates. Though custom dictates she wed her father’s apprentice, her heart rebels against the match. In mere days Amy will be condemned to a stifling, loveless marriage, and she sees no way out—until the devastating fire of 1666 sweeps through London, and tragedy lands her in the arms of a dashing young earl who knows a diamond in the rough when he sees it…

Colin Chase, the Earl of Greystone, has his future all figured out. He’s restoring his crumbling castle and estate to its former glory, and the key to its completion is his rich bride-to-be. But the Great Fire lays waste to his plans, saddling him with trouble—in the form of a penniless shopkeeper’s daughter with whom he’s most inconveniently falling in love…

My Review:

The Earl's Unsuitable Bride is an exciting Historical Romance full of adventure and turmoil. The protagonist is a working-class female named Amethyst Goldmsith who is passionate about her trade as a jeweler. There is trouble in her world and falling in love with Colin Chase, the Earl of Greystone, doesn't make things easier. A proper lady would never be allowed to work, no matter how talented she was. Colin has his own problems and needing to marry for money is one of them. Can love win when the odds are stacked against them? This is a great story with interesting characters and surprising adventures.
