 TO SWOON AND TO SPAR by Martha Waters, Regency Vows #4

Coming April 11, 2023 from Atria Books.

How do you keep the estate, but get rid of the unwanted husband? Haunt it! Both Jane Spencer and Viscount Penvale marry each other for Trethwick Abbey. For Penvale, it's the home of his childhood that he lost. For Jane, it's the first place that has felt like home; even if she didn't like her guardian. Jane soon learns that scaring away her guardian was much easier than her new husband. And what is even more horrifying? She might even like her husband!

I love Martha Water's playful prose and snappy writing style. The book is a hilarious take on Regency Gothic romances and would even have Jane Austen chortling. You don't need to read the previous books in the series to enjoy this one; but you really should because they are more fun than minuet.

Heat level: A married couple makes excellent use of a wall.

I received an eARC in exchange for an honest review.
