This was such a fun book! I have read some of KAH’s work with the Hawthorne series and it was fun to see some familiar characters.🐎I’ve read a lot of regencies but none that take place in Newmarket where the horse races are. At least none that immediately come to mind so it was fun …

Independently Published 2019 This was an interesting read. Normally I don’t like split time books.

I really enjoyed this debut Victorian historical from Hastings. Lucinda finished attending finishing school and is ready to go back to real life – help her father with the ledgers from his countinghouse, read her favorite serial book (it comes chapter by chapter in a magazine) but she is denied both.📜 Lucinda is a stubborn …
