#amreading – What, Why, While :   A Lady’s Risk by Felicity George @ElizabethWelke @books_dash @NovelistJessica

What (am I currently reading)?

I am currently reading the Regency Romance  A Lady’s Risk  by Felicity George.  This was published by Orion Dash in September of this year.      This is the first book in the Gentlemen of London series, with the 2nd book A Courtesan’s Worth, being published in 2023.

Book Blurb   (taken from https://felicitygeorgeauthor.wordpress.com/  )

Lady Margaret has devoted herself to taking care of her young siblings and the estate while her half-brother fritters away the family fortune. Upon Edwin’s death, she learns he has left them destitute and, worst of all, at the mercy of a notorious and cruel rake.

Lord Nicholas would much rather be pursing women for quick sport rather than taking care of a headstrong debutante without any prospects, as well as her siblings. But Edwin saved his life once, and now he owes him a debt. Fortunately, all he has to do is find Meggy a husband, and his debt will be paid.

There’s just one issue: Meggy is nothing like what he’d imagined. And the more time he spends in her company, the more he begins to wonder whether he’s met his match…

Why (have I chosen to read it)?

I wanted a change from my usual genres, and thought a historical romance would be perfect.   The week has been a bit stressful with kitten needing an unexpected operation, so disappearing into these pages has been just the thing.  Also just look at that cover!

While (I am reading it)

We are taking turns to sit with kitten – mainly to restrain him from being over-exuberant while he heals from his operation.  Actually it seems I’m the most stressed of everyone!  So I took myself out for a walk, and came across these beautiful deer. 

All the best, Emma
