Biografia breu
Evie Dunmore is the USA TODAY bestselling author of Bringing Down the Duke. Her League of Extraordinary Women is inspired by her passion for romance, women pioneers, and all things Victorian.

In her civilian life, she is a consultant with a M.Sc. in Diplomacy from Oxford. Scotland and the great outdoors have a special place in her heart and she goes up to the Highlands whenever she can. Since she cannot take the mountains back with her, she just keeps adding to her already extensive collection of woolly tartan blankets. (Author Website)

I didn't like this very much - the MCs did not fit well together and they basically disliked one another too much that I just could not believe their pairing. This was another histrom where I questioned if the FMC was coded Jewish?

This book was billed as historical fiction, so I was disappointed. It is more a romance that happens to be set in late 19th Century England, i.e. more of a beach read than a quality history novel. The novel is Ms. Dunsmore’s debut. She can weave a good tale, for sure, but the writing is a little awkward to me in places. For example, she frequently uses words other than “said” during dialog, apparently in an attempt to convey the tone of the voice, but those words sometimes miss the mark. For example, she follows a sentence or two with “she chirped.” I just don’t get how anyone “chirps” words. However, those were minor criticisms. Overall, a good first novel.… (més)

Perfect romance.

She’s a common, feisty, poor, bluestocking (with a past!) who is fighting for the right to vote. He’s a handsome, stodgy, politically savvy Duke with a whole lot of family responsibility plus some special instructions from The Queen herself. Of course their paths cross and they have no business being together but……..

She has some great smarty-pants friends who I am sure will be the focus of future books in the series.

There’s plenty of sex in this but it feels more about the relationship and the people than about sex and that always wins points with me.… (més)
