From BookBub

From a USA Today bestselling author! Unlike her older sisters, free-spirited Lady Augusta Vivers has no desire to marry. Forced to participate in London Season, Augusta catches the eye of Lord Phineas Carter-Wood — and when they travel together through Europe, she starts to realize the excitement of falling in love…


Even the Worthington least likely to wed may find her perfect match . . .

Marriage has worked out quite nicely for her older sisters, yet Lady Augusta Vivers is certain it would end her studies in languages and geography, and stop her from travelling. But when her mother thwarts her plan to attend the only university in Europe that accepts women—in Italy—she is forced to agree to one London Season. Spending her time at parties proves an empty diversion—until she encounters the well-traveled Lord Phineas Carter-Wood. Still, Europe awaits . . .

Phineas has studied architecture all over the world, yet Augusta is his most intriguing discovery yet. How can he resist a woman who loves maps and far-off lands? But her longing for all things foreign hinders any hope of courtship. When he learns her cousins have offered a trip to Europe, he secretly arranges to join their party. For he is determined to show Augusta that a real union is a thrilling adventure of its own. And when their journey is beset by dangerous obstacles, he gets far more opportunity than he bargained for . . .

My Review at Amazon, February 26, 2019

I enjoyed yet another Ella Quinn, Worthington family story.

My Thoughts:

The last thing Phineas expected to find was the love of his life. He is much more interested in his travels than some giggly young lady making her come out.

Augusta wants only to go to university. She knows if she marries that wish will come to an abrupt end.

This is the tale of two very intelligent and equally unlikely people who discover along a very bumpy way that love and ones other wants can both be had at the same time.
I enjoyed yet another Ella Quinn, Worthington family story. I have read all of this series including six full length novels and two novellas.
Although not as comical as most of this series there is still some humor and the expected requisite animals involved in this the sixth book in this ever engaging series.
I gave Phineas and Augusta’s story 4.65 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization. I do recommend reading these books in order to get the whole scope of the family but all of these books can be read as a standalone. The only drawback is the interconnecting character stories.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Welcome to Book One in the fabulous new Book of Love series. A dingy old book tucked away in an old Regency London bookshop holds magic and love for those who use the ‘recipes’!

When Lady Olivia Gosling finds The Book of Love in a musty bookshop, she is most eager to try out its love “recipes” on someone safe. 

Did she say safe?

Well, Beast isn’t really safe, but with her odious guardian about to marry her off to one of his unsavory friends, Olivia needs her childhood friend to fall in love with her… fast. If Beast can love her, then any man she chooses will surely do the same.

Alexander Beastling, Duke of Hartford, is known as Beast among the ton. He is big and muscled, and there is a dark aura of mystery about him that he makes no effort to dispel. Now that he’s returned from battle, he’s appalled to learn of the marriage plans Lady Olivia’s loathsome guardian has for her. Beast has decided that he will help her find a proper husband, even if it means putting up with her ridiculous experiments taken out of a book she refers to as The Book of Love. Olivia calls them magical recipes for love. 

Is it possible they actually work? Because suddenly, Beast can’t seem to get Olivia out of his mind… or his heart.

Read for FREE with Kindle Unlimited! 

What makes a man fall in love? The Book of Love holds the answer, or so Poppy Farthingale believe…

Poppy Farthingale has made a pact with her two best friends to use The Book of Love to find true love. How else will Nathaniel Sherbourne, Earl of Welles, ever notice her? With a small dowry and no prominent lineage, Nathaniel will never consider her a suitable wife, especially when her competition is a beautiful duke’s daughter who has already been declared an Incomparable. Poppy has four days to win his heart, but with time running out and her rival about to attend a weekend party at Nathaniel’s country home, is all hope lost?

Nathaniel Sherbourne, Earl of Welles, is a man whose heart has been bruised by the ravages of war. He is in no rush to marry, for he’s a wealthy and titled bachelor with debutantes aplenty eager to gain his notice. In any event, he has a blackmail scheme to unravel before he can turn his mind to more romantic ventures. But his sister’s shy friend, Poppy Farthingale, is suddenly capturing his attention. She’s toting around The Book of Love, and he’s promised to help her find a suitable match. 

But is it possible that he, in fact, is the right man for Poppy?
