This book is part of a series, but each book can be read as a standalone but this book, in particular, has spoilers for The Duke and The Baron: book 2 in the series. I have read several of the books in this series out of order, and there is crossover with the characters.
Lady Louisa Present has been attending society functions for the last three years, but the thought of marrying is far from her mind much to her father’s dismay. Her entire world is disrupted when she meets the one person she has felt a connection with.
Maitland “Ellie” Eliott- Rigsby is attending the season for the first time, and her mother has every hope she will secure a titled gentleman and elevate the families standing. When she feels someone watching her, she is expecting to find some rake ogling her she wasn’t anticipating to see Louisa.
In a time when same-sex love was a crime, these two women must overcome horrific circumstances if they wish to be together.
This is an LGBTQ novel featuring two women who fall in love. There is also a trigger warning for those sensitive to sexual assault. There are complicated romance scenarios that are outside the norm even for today’s standards featured in this book, Miss LeBlanc excels in creating characters that have unconventional romances. This book is about love and the different ways it can strike people. I would recommend it to anyone who is tired of typical romances and is looking for a change.
I received an arc of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
