Historical romance
In exchange for an honest review

My Thoughts
Oh the horror, she is 29! Not even a spinster anymore, just forgotten. But Hattie did not care, she wanted to live her own life and make her own rules. You go Hattie!

Hattie wants to rid herself of her virginity and the road she aims to take, well her rules. She also wants to take over her dad's business as her brother does not know a ship from a rowing boat.

Beast is a crime lord in Covent Garden, he and his brother and sister rule that place, but they are "nice" criminals, so they have some rules. He is also the bastard son of this evil Duke that pitted his kids against each other. And now I have to talk about his evil brother the Duke, that guy is getting his own book, but that guy is so evil? Not sure there, but then we do not get all the details.

Hattie and the Beast meets. He thinks she is plotting with his evil brother and wants to take her down. She is upset cos he is ruining her plans. At times I felt all omg Hattie, take care of yourself! But then I quickly realised that she could. She is his equal.

I enjoyed this book and these two main characters. They had such great chemistry. I also liked the side characters like her bestie Nora.

Fun times

Justine Eyre! I just can't grown tired of her historical romance narrations, I truly enjoy her voices 

When Lady Henrietta Sedley declares her twenty-ninth year her own, she has plans to inherit her father’s business, to make her own fortune, and to live her own life. But first, she intends to experience a taste of the pleasure she’ll forgo as a confirmed spinster. Everything is going perfectly…until she discovers the most beautiful man she’s ever seen tied up in her carriage and threatening to ruin the Year of Hattie before it’s even begun.

The Bastard’s Proposal

When he wakes in a carriage at Hattie’s feet, Whit, a king of Covent Garden known to all the world as Beast, can’t help but wonder about the strange woman who frees him—especially when he discovers she’s headed for a night of pleasure . . . on his turf. He is more than happy to offer Hattie all she desires…for a price.

An Unexpected Passion

Soon, Hattie and Whit find themselves rivals in business and pleasure. She won’t give up her plans; he won’t give up his power . . . and neither of them sees that if they’re not careful, they’ll have no choice but to give up everything . . . including their hearts. 


  1. Looks great.

  2. That is definitely an unmarriageable age. Lol. I'm interested for the Robin Hood type of gang. I mean, that's what it sounds like. :D

    1. Oh I know, 29! Who would ever want to marry someone who is 29

  3. I'll have to try this series in audiobook - it sounds wonderful!

  4. This sounds like so much fun.

    Now, I haven't tried HR on audio. I wonder of that would work for me. I'm going to give it a shot!

    1. Hmmm, who knows! Maybe it would work great for you in audio

  5. This sounds wonderful! I love historical that feature women who know what they want and just don't care what anyone thinks. I will have to add it to my wish list.

  6. I used to listen to some books narrated by Justine Eyre, but now it feels as if she's almost exclusively reading historical romances! Lucky you!

  7. I've read one or two books in this series and really liked them, need to look for this one.

  8. I just got a copy of the audio from the library. The Wallflower Wager first and then I'll read *listen* to this one. I can't wait! :)

  9. I wanna read/listen to this soooo bad!

    1. I like bad guys who are not really bad guys,but still bad guys, not like mr I will cut off your finger

  10. This sounds like a good one and Hattie sounds like a great character. I need to add this series to my wishlist.
