Joanna Lowell recommends
The Love Remedy (2024)
(Damsels of Discovery, book 1)
Elizabeth Everett
"Elizabeth Everett has done it again! Sexy, witty, tender, and wise, her latest unforgettable romance transports readers to a visionary woman-owned Victorian apothecary where the scorchingly well-matched hero and heroine learn which rules to break and which hearts to mend. The Love Remedy firmly establishes Everett as a trailblazer and truth-teller whose daring historical fiction lights the way forward."
Ready or Not (2024)
Cara Bastone
"An absolute treasure of a book! Cara Bastone gives readers a gift, and pays humanity a compliment, with this warmly witty, profoundly tender story of a love that makes the world bigger and better. Ready or Not introduces indelible characters who navigate their entanglements with abundant, heart-bursting kindness. The result is one of the most emotionally satisfying romances I've read in years."
The Benevolent Society of Ill-Mannered Ladies (2023)
(Ill-Mannered Ladies, book 1)
Alison Goodman
"Fresh and fearless, Alison Goodman's exquisitely written, impeccably-researched genre-blending novel shines a light in the darkest corners of Regency England. The Benevolent Society of Ill-Mannered Ladies is part heart-racing adventure, part gothic mystery, part tantalizing romance, and wholly wonderful. I can't wait for the next installment!"
