This one was fun. It was def more Austen then your traditional historical romance. Those usually go meeting-drama- lusty times-drama- lust. While here it was more an Austen adventure, and I really enjoyed that.

Kitty has 3 months and then they are out on the street. She has 4 sisters and as of now, no prospects. She takes matters into her own hands, goes to find a friend of her mother, and launches herself into the pre season. Hunting for a good match. Not too low, not too high. 

Sure she is a pure mercenary, but she does it for the love of her sisters. I can respect that.

But as always, someone is watching and does not want a mercenary into their family. But hey I totally got Lord Radcliff too, he saw her for what she was.

Just a really good time. Fun, cute, some danger, blackmail, good times indeed. I will definitely  be reading more.

Great narration too. At times though some voices blended into each other, but it did not take away from my enjoyment

The season is about to begin—and there’s not a minute to lose…

Kitty Talbot needs a fortune.

Or rather, she needs a husband who has a fortune. This is 1818 after all, and only men have the privilege of seeking their own riches.

With just 12 weeks until Kitty and her sisters are made homeless, launching herself into London society is the only avenue open to her. And Kitty must use every ounce of cunning and ingenuity she possesses to climb the ranks.

The only one to see through her plans is the worldly Lord Radcliffe, and he is determined to thwart her at any cost.

Can Kitty secure a fortune and save her sisters from poverty? There is not a day to lose and no-one—not even a Lord—will stand in her way…


  1. Glad you had a fun time with this one! Love the vibes of the cover. :D

  2. This does sound like a fun one! I'll have to note the narrator.

  3. Oh, this does sound like a good one. I like the Austen classic style you mention.

  4. Good for it hitting the right note for being Austenesque, and it sounds fun!

  5. I just finished my second Austen book, Northanger Abbey. The laundry receipts! I wanted to spend more time exploring the abbey.
