    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 :)

    Okay book, but way too long..


    This didn’t even get interesting until Marcus found out about Charlotte, at about 50%. Then they really got busy on finding out who was trying to ruin and then kill Marcus. And when they found out who it was and why he was doing it I was totally disgusted.
    And there was a little too much about sex, too much sex talk from Marcus to Charlotte/Christopher, and Charlotte/Christopher’s thoughts about her “pego.” Thirty times it was mentioned. Really, 393 pages was just too much of this book. Halfway through the book all the feelings were one-sided because of Marcus not knowing about her/his shapeshifting.

    I will not be reading the next book to see if they get any better because it’s 3 hours and 49 minutes and it costs $7.49. So over $10 for the book, it has 159 pages, and audible. The same price as the 393 as this book. Totally out of line. AND since Audible told me the authors and publishers set the price it makes it twice as bad.

    I think they had sex 4 or 5 times and each time it was pretty graphic, so that took up a lot of pages in the book. And the
    F-bomb was used 11 times.

    As to the narration: Rosalyn Landor did a very good job on all the voices and her emotions were great.

    A Delightful Romp

    This was an oddest of comedies - requiring a willing suspension of disbelief. I did and was rewarded.

    Delightfully Different

    I'm not much into fantastical stories, but this delightful story pulled me in almost from the begining. The story line, the well-developed characters and Rosalyn Landor made it seem like fantasy can be real. This is my first book by this talented new author....but not my last.

    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!

    Sweet story with a touch of magic. Good, flawed people with baggage fell in love under transformative circumstances.

    Love this

    Loved the story but Rosalyn Landor really brings the story and characters to life. I especially liked that magic that wove the plot together. Very sweet ending.

    excellent narrator of light escapist novel

    I had previously read this fantasy historical romance. It's an easy light novel. I saw the story on audible and bought it for long journey, choosing it based on the price.

    The narrator is excellent at voicing the various characters in the story. I enjoyed listening to the story more than reading it!

    Fascinated despite myself

    Usually any mention of magic is enough to make me bypass a book, but a friend recommended this so I decided to try it. At first I was curious, then intrigued by the insights into the ways men and women were treated, and the ways animals experience the world. Soon I was fascinated and couldn’t stop reading. I will certainly read more by Emily Larkin. Her thought processes are most enjoyable, inventive and fun!
