Historical romance

To review

Poor Alice is overlooked all the time, well not exactly, it does have more to do with her mother being a right cow. Holy f, what a horrible mother. She was never kind once, she was an ass to everyone, and kept bullying her daughter. So yes poor Alice.

She meets Kit as a houseparty, and asks him to teach her how to act around men, cos she wants to get the hell away from her mother. She needs to marry.

Kit is your usual kind of scoundrel that does not want to marry. But he does have this depth of insecurities. 

From a houseparty we move to New York, and some drama, some cooking and a happily ever after.

They were perfect together. He needed someone who told him he was good enough. And she needed someone that showed her that she was strong, and that she should not listen to her horrible mother.

Good narration, and yes it sure felt difference to do a US historical romance for once

Shy heiress Alice Lusk is tired of being overlooked by every bachelor. Something has to change, else she’ll be forced to marry a man whose only desire is her fortune. She needs to become a siren, a woman who causes a man’s blood to run hot...and she’s just met the perfect rogue to help teach her.

Christopher “Kit” Ward plans to open a not-so-reputable supper club in New York City, and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to hire the best chef in the city to guarantee its success. Even if it requires giving carnal lessons to a serious-minded spinster who has an in with the chef.

Their bedroom instruction grows passionate, and Alice is a much better pupil than Kit had ever anticipated. When the Society gentlemen start to take notice, Kit has to try to win Alice in other ways...but is he too late to win her heart? 


  1. Wow yes a historical romance set in the US unless it's a western is unique. Thanks for the great review and wow what a cover :)

  2. It sounds like they were good for each other.

  3. Oh sounds really good for sure. Like both of them. Nasty mother!

  4. It's been a while since I haven't read a HR

  5. Already I detest the mom and am glad they found each other.

  6. Interesting!!! It is rare for a US HR that isn't a Western or WWI/WWII

  7. It sure looks like she gets lucky! LOL. this does sound good, though.

  8. Get rid of the mother cow! Glad they found each other.
