Lady August

August Summer thinks she is a nobody until a London solicitor barges into her employer’s drawing room, revealing not only is she the daughter of an earl but a wealthy heiress as well. Optimistic about a new life, she travels to her ancestral home of Linfield Hall, only for her brother to banish her to London to live with her aunt, a dowager duchess with a reputation.

When Lord Bolton asks him to fetch his illegitimate daughter, solicitor Samuel Brooks does not expect himself to become so invested in the young woman’s debut after wanting nothing to do with dinners and balls before. But as August navigates her way through this new world of the British aristocracy, Brooks is the one who is most dazzled by her unexpected charms.

Since society demands every young girl must marry, August decides she will accept nothing less than someone’s heart in exchange for possession of her newfound fortune. Forced to reexamine his negative views of love and marriage or lose August forever, Brooks soon realizes his heart is the only thing in danger of becoming possessed.

This book was a surprise and a delight! A steward and a bastard daughter make an unlikely pair. In a kind of Cinderalla type of story, a governess has her life turned upside down. Becky Michaels does a fantastic job of making the characters come to life. Brook was such a fun hero with his motion sickness and August was stubborn to a fault.

I picked this book up in the morning and kept grabbing it throughout the day. I didn’t want to put it down. I ended up staying awake way too late to finish it. This book does get quite steamy towards the end for any of you that like to stick with Proper Romance.

I loved this one enough that I am going to make sure I read Becky’s first book. I really enjoyed this quirky and relatable couple and I think you will too!

Melissa has been in love with books since she was a child. As a young girl, in her Holly Hobby decorated room, she would sit and tape scraps of paper to her books so that she could organize them by the Dewey Decimal System. She is a huge advocate for helping children learn to love reading. Along with hosting an online Regency based book club and a book club at her home, she started a book club for kids at her son’s school. These days, Melissa can be found at the library writing a book review or tucked in some quiet corner having a love affair with a newly discovered romance novel.
