    Inhaltsangabe

    "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!

    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!
