Lawrence Pelham works as a comic artist for Allan’s Miscellany. A chance meeting with a young woman dressed in mourning changes Pel’s whole life, and without his even knowing, he is thrown into a world of mystery and intrigue, where nothing is as it seems to be -- especially not the woman he has given his heart to.

Her whole life Sarah Browne has been told how plain she is, how nondescript, destined to become an old maid. For years she has been her family’s dutiful nursing maid and caretaker, but now a secret inheritance and an encounter with the charming Mr. Pelham seem to offer her a chance to break out of her life of duty and drudgery -- if she dares to take it. Yet how could such an interesting, witty man like Mr. Pelham be possibly interested in her boring self?

And so, Sarah soon finds herself entangled in a web of lies and deceit, which might even cost her the love of her life.

  1. I like to read historical fiction because i really enjoy the time period, the fabulous way they dress and thier manner of speaking.

    1. I hear you, Linda. :-) I fell in love with (British) history by reading historical fiction (I blame Rosemary Sutcliff for everything!).

  2. I just love history. So much was different in the past and I enjoy reading fiction stories with a real background.

    1. Robin, I'm stuffing a lot of historical background into the stories about Allan's Miscellany. It's so much fun to dig through old magazines and newspapers in order to find unusual bits of gossip and scandal! :-)

  3. Thanks so much for hosting me, Susan!

  4. I like seeing the author take historical fiction and mix it with facts and spin me a story :)

  5. I like that it takes me back to the past.

  6. I like to read about the time period. It is just so fun for me.

  7. I like to see what the mistakes were so that I do not make them.

  8. Loving the cover. What I like about reading historical fiction is seeing how the author works a fictional story and makes it work around the time, and we get to learn a bit through the story as well!

  9. I love the historical aspect. I like looking things up to better understand it.

  10. I love reading about that time period!!!

  11. I like to try to understand what happened around that time period and to feel like i'm in that time period. Thanks for the giveaway!

  12. I had always loved reading about the past and how life used to be

  13. I like to know what life use to be like then.

  14. I love the romance of the different era's. Back then a man really had to give more of himself than they do w/todays technology. Exampe, if they wanted to talk to a woman they were interested in, they had to go over to their house to see them in person rather than text or call them on the telephone.
