A Regency Romance Novella
As Arthur Bremerton, Lord Mather, hurries to the opening session of Parliament, he is incensed to find his way blocked by a boisterous group protesting for women’s rights. But his annoyance turns to mortification when he finds his own cousin among their ranks, alongside a beautiful suffragette who engages him in a fierce battle of words and wills.
Emmeline’s fight for equality is just one facet of her wide-ranging interests. At the moment, her most pressing concern is how she and her mother, an eccentric Baroness, are to begin again after the family’s fortune was squandered following her father’s death. After her heated disagreement with Lord Mather, the only thought she gives the infuriating man is the hope that they will never meet again. But alas, this hope is in vain: unbeknownst to them, both Emmeline and Arthur are to be guests at a three-week house party, and fate seems determined to throw them together at every opportunity.
This novella is a prequel to Solving Sophronia. I thought it was really fun that this one is about Sophie’s grandmother. She plays a part in Sophie’s story and it was really fun to get to see what her story was. I didn’t feel like this one had to be read first. And I loved that.
As a novella, this one is shorter. But I thought the author did a great job of making her characters seem alive in that short of a time. I loved Emmeline. She had things happen in her life that she wouldn’t have chosen. But she and her mom made the best of their situation.
My favorite part of this one was when Lord Mather and Emmeline meet in the very first chapter. Their meeting was not one that would seem to bring romance. They meet when Emmeline was protesting at the House of the Lords. And Emmeline was not kind to him. Nor was he kind to her.
But these two are thrown together at a house party and that’s when they are able to get to know each other. And fall in love a little bit at a time. I thought their love story was perfect for them.
