The Cash Countess Rapunzel meets "Downton Abbey" in this sweet Gilded Age romance! Miss Cordelia Jones is an American Princess, but her story is no fairytale. Eighteen-year-old Cordelia Jones is locked in her tower until she promises to marry Lord Thomas Ashby, the eighth Earl of Farnham. Cordelia doesn’t want to leave her American home or Stuyvesant Bradley, whom she has loved since childhood. But Stuyvesant leaves on a trip and Cordelia is pressured by her overbearing mother to marry a stranger. Coerced into a loveless marriage, Cordelia finds herself an alien in a decaying English country house where customs and manners are so different from home. Worst yet, accidents seem to befall her at every corner. The more she begins to care for her husband, the more perilous her life becomes. Is she unlucky, or is someone trying to kill the newest cash countess?

An Unlikely Proposition by Rosalyn Eves

An Unlikely Proposition by Rosalyn Eves Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Move over John Keats. Step aside Samuel Coleridge. There’s a new Regency poet on the scene: Miss Thalia Aubrey! After a botched elopement in AN UNLIKELY SEASON, Thalia is working as a lady’s companion and pursuing her poetry. Her employer is widowed teenager Eleanor who is being harassed by her dead husband’s nephew for her fortune. Eleanor enters into a fake engagement (fake dating trope anyone?) and hijinks ensue when she meets another handsome young man. Love and poetry are messy too when Thalia starts falling for Eleanor’s fiancĂ©! Jane Austen fans will love this curtsy to the Regency period and modern young ladies will appreciate the two prickly and strong-willed heroines who fight for control of their own futures.

Review: The Spy and I by Tiana Smith

  The Spy and I by Tiana Smith Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Smart, sexy, and spies! What more do you want from a book? Seriously, I absolutely loved it. Dove Barkley is a cyber security specialist (aka penetration tester) who is mistaken for her super spy sister! She teams up with a hot CIA operative named Mendez to clear her sister's name. I loved all the spy details. If you liked the TV show "Chuck" and/or "Mission Impossible" film series you will devour this book! The romance is a longing, slow burn, where Dove isn't sure what is real and what's not. Steamy kisses, but no bedroom scenes. The action and fighting is exciting. And the twists kept me on the edge of my seat. I can hardly wait for the companion book! #TheSpyAndI #TianaSmith #Berkley @berkleyromance #RomCom #SpyBook #Romance #BookReview #BookRecommendation

The Lily of Ludgate Hill by Mimi Matthews

  The Lily of Ludgate Hill by Mimi Matthews Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Another fantastic Victorian romance from Mimi Matthews. You don't have to have read the other books in the Belles of London series to enjoy this story, but I highly recommend it because they are wonderful reads.   Lady Anne Deveril was once secretly engaged to Mr. Felix Hartford, but they quarreled. Six and half years later, the sparks are still there when Anne asks Felix for a favor. He agrees to help her, however, the source of their quarrel is still a problem. Anne's mother, the dowager Countess of Arundell, can't cope with the death of her husband and has turned to spiritualism, laudanum, and obsessive mourning. Meanwhile, Felix is struggling with his own family problems. Anne must choose a second time between duty and love.  Fans of Victorian novels will appreciate the nods to Queen Victoria's strict mourning rituals and spiritualism. This romance features 'enemies to lovers' and 'second cha
