Description

"Sexy, unusual, and vastly entertaining. The best historical romance I've read this year." (Anna Campbell, author of the Dashing Widows series)

On her 25th birthday, Charlotte Appleby receives an unusual gift: the ability to change shape. 

Penniless and orphaned, she sets off for London to make her fortune as a man. But a position as secretary to Lord Cosgrove proves unexpectedly challenging. Someone is trying to destroy Cosgrove and his life is increasingly in jeopardy.

As Charlotte plunges into London’s backstreets at Cosgrove’s side, hunting his persecutor, she finds herself fighting for her life - and falling in love…

"The best historical romance I have read all year." (Rachel, Heroes & Heartbreakers)

Length: Full-length novel of 94,000 words

Sensuality level: A hot Regency romance with steamy love scenes 

Q&A with the author:

How would you describe this series?

It's Regency England with a dash of magic. I hope to take readers on a journey from the glittering ballrooms of the aristocracy to the dark underbelly of Regency England - with passion, danger, adventure, romance, and a little magic thrown into the mix.  

Why did you write this series?

I wanted to get my well-bred heroines out of the drawing rooms and put them in the way of adventure and romance. But I didn’t want to write a series where magic is common; I wanted to write a series where only a few characters have magic, and it’s a deep, dark secret, and no one else knows.

How would you describe your writing?

Several reviewers have likened my writing to Georgette Heyer, which is the hugest compliment ever. I adore Georgette Heyer! She’s why I write historical romance, and I reread her books over and over. (If you’ve not read The Grand Sophy, please do so!) I’ve also had readers compare my writing to Courtney Milan and Mary Balogh, which are also massive compliments. 

Who would like this series?

This series will appeal to readers who enjoy the historical backdrop of Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen, the emotion of Mary Balogh and Courtney Milan, and the magic of Patricia Rice and Mary Robinette Kowal. Quite a broad range, really!

The ideal reading order would be:

  • The Fey Quartet (series prequel)
  • Maythorn’s Wish
  • Hazel’s Promise
  • Ivy’s Choice
  • Larkspur’s Quest

The Baleful Godmother series

  • Unmasking Miss Appleby
  • Resisting Miss Merryweather
  • Trusting Miss Trentham
  • Claiming Mister Kemp
  • Ruining Miss Wrotham
  • Discovering Miss Dalrymple

Plus three more interlinked Baleful Godmother series to come.

Happy listening!

Interesting story

Strange plot for a romance but it was a good plot and I enjoyed it. Sizzle rating 1-5 is 3.5 IMO.
Narrator made this book. Another may not have been able to pull off this strange plot with a woman changing shape :)

I want more!

Great book. Unexpected and unanticipated plot twists, sexy, unique. Loved it! I don’t like unrealistic type books and I read this one had a touch of magic, so I wasn’t going to get it but thought I’d try something different. So glad I did. Even the magical parts were relatable and understandable. My only disappointment was there wasn’t more to download. I want another. Come on audible get us another one from her!

Pretty good story

At first I didn’t think this would be nothing more than a historical romance. But it begain to pick up speed and became what is now one of my favorite reads. It’s busy with intrigue and humor. Love this book.

too much dribble in the beginning- didnt finish

The start of the story has the main character asking "innocent" questions about men and sex - that I felt would not be asked in the time period or station difference. NOR what I wanted the character to be asking awkward the questions.
I could not continue the story ...
