Talk Sweetly to me- Courtney Milan

Nobody knows who Miss Rose Sweetly is, and she prefers it that way. She’s a shy, mathematically-minded shopkeeper’s daughter who dreams of the stars. Women like her only ever come to attention through scandal. She’ll take obscurity, thank you very much.

All of England knows who Stephen Shaughnessy is. He’s an infamous advice columnist and a known rake. When he moves into the house next door to Rose, she discovers that he’s also wickedly funny, devilishly flirtatious, and heart-stoppingly handsome. But when he takes an interest in her mathematical work, she realizes that Mr. Shaughnessy isn’t just a scandal waiting to happen. He’s waiting to happen to her…and if she’s not careful, she’ll give in to certain ruination. 

My thoughts:
Rose loves math, astronomy, and she is just so smart. But she is a woman, she is not white, she is a shop keeper's daughter, but she is lucky and does the math for a professor. She does what she loves.

Stephen is a rake, he writes for a newspaper, and he falls madly and deeply in love with a woman he meets on the street. But like I said, he has a bad rep, but I just loved how he wanted to get to know her. Not bed her. To know her.

It's a novella, so duh, time moves fast. They meet again. He is so great. She will start to fall. We will have some drama, but not just about them...not gonna spoil it. And they will live happily ever after, because he is great. And she needs a man who will love her when all she thinks about is math ;)

I need to pick up a book by Courtney Milan one of these days. I love that the heroine is not white and she's smart. The guy sounds like a great fellow too.

I purchased one of her books a few years ago, but never got to it. The Duchess War is still sitting on the bottom of my shelf.

A math geek hooking up with a rake, now that is unexpected.

The author sounds so familiar, I might have actually read one of her books way back during my romance phase!

I read it earlier this year, wish it was a full-length book instead of a novella. Oh well.

I've always wanted to try one of her stories. The cover is weird... is it historical? is it not?

Blodeuedd said...

Been there!

Blodeuedd said...

Historical, else the whole she is one color, he another would not really be this big
