My rating: 4.5/5
Female students at the University of Oxford! Suffragists! An intense Duke!
This is a debut novel and a great one at that. Evie Dunmore writes a historical Victorian Romance with a kick that any reader of romance will enjoy.
I loved the interactions between Annabelle Archer and Smexy Sebastian, the Duke of Montgomery. Set in the Victorian era, this clever historical romance is a little bit of everything.
What I enjoyed the most was the honest ending. Annabelle and Sebastian get their own kind of fairy tale ending that is probably the most realistic I’ve read. They do what any sensible English person would do to avoid scandal: go abroad!
This is the first in Evie Dunmore’s “League of Extraordinary Women” series and I can’t wait to read the next one: A Rogue of One’s Own.
