by Alissa Baxter
Publication Date: April 26, 2022
Vinspire Publishing
Genre: Historical Romance
Series: The Linfield Ladies, Book 2

Harriet Linfield is a lady novelist who has been disillusioned by love. She sets out to write more realistic tales about the emotion when she returns home to Linfield Court for the summer. Vowing to avoid any romantic entanglements along the way, she focuses instead on her writing and her plan to turn the estate she inherited from her uncle into a refuge for orphans.

Oliver, Viscount Wentford, is determined to restore his family fortunes. But his plans for the estate he inherited are in direct opposition to the wishes of Harriet, his new neighbour. Upon meeting her, Oliver is amused when, in response to his provocative comments, she informs him that she intends to make him the villain of her next book. But his amusement swiftly turns to dismay when circumstances align to show him in that exact light.

When an enemy comes back into Harriet’s life, she sees that love isn’t as clear-cut as the romantic tales she pens. But will the viscount manage to discard his villainous mantle to become Harriet’s real-life hero?

Praise

“A charming love story set in the English countryside that’s grounded in impeccable research.” ~ Kirkus Reviews

“Alissa Baxter’s writing is period perfect.” ~ Mimi Matthews, USA Today bestselling author of The Matrimonial Advertisement

“This book is gorgeous!” ~ Rachel Burton, author of The Tearoom on the Bay

“A truly traditional Regency romance, with lots of witty banter, very reminiscent of Georgette Heyer. Recommended for anyone who likes a completely clean traditional Regency, with strongly authentic writing, historical accuracy and a satisfying romance. Baxter’s writing is excellent, and her dialogue, manners and settings are true to the era.” ~ Mary Kingswood, author of traditional Regency romances

“While immersing the reader in the mores and life of the Regency era, Alissa Baxter manages to write strong, independent heroines whom modern-day women will cheer and root for. Plus the addition of little details that wrap around the plot and the characters make reading her books all the more special because you never know when you might land on a little Easter egg morsel in the beautiful and engaging prose. Historicals with heart and engaging characters that read real—that’s what you get in Ms Baxter’s books.” ~ Zee Monodee, USA Today bestselling author

REVIEW

This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

This is a non spoiler review, because you as reader need to read this book. Also, I feel sometimes I have in the past gave away to much of the plot line. This has diminished the pleasure for would be readers.


The Viscount’s Lady Novelist

The Linfield Ladies #2

By Alissa Baxter

This is the second in installment in the The Linfield Ladies series, which picks up directly at the ending of The Earl and the Lady Geologist. Harriet Linfield talents lay in the way of literature. Writing is her passion, unlike several in her family who’s interest lay in the scientific, geology and biology. Reeling from a disastrous romantic involvement with the cad Mr Anderson, she has sworn of love and marriage completely. She is also an heiress, in her own right, who has inherited a neighboring estate by a family relative.

Oliver, Viscount Westford has inherited an estate that comes with some hefty debt. Wanting to acquire Harriet inheritance by buying or acquiring through marriage seems to be his solution. Except one thing, Harriet {Harr} has been given the authority to choose who she wants to marry. She is easily drawn to Oliver, but her nagging fear continues to resurfaces. Untrusting of her intuition when it comes to the genuineness of a gentleman. She struggles with allowing Oliver’s true intentions come to life.

Oh my goodness this was such sweet and delightful Regency romance. Full of witty banter between both hero and heroine, that I absolutely adored. Alissa Baxter, captures your full attention from the first page to the very last. The characters are well written, and the storyline was gratifying as it unfolded.

There are some creative twists along with historical details that made for a lovely reading experience. Readers will also notice upfront that our unsure heroine is able to save herself when certain events arises, I particularly liked this change up.

I highly recommend this book to those who love and enjoy well written clean romance !


About the Author

Alissa Baxter was born in a small town in South Africa and grew up with her nose in a book on a poultry and cattle farm. At the age of eleven, she discovered her mother’s collection of Georgette Heyer novels. The first Heyer novel she ever read was Sylvester and she was hooked on Georgette Heyer after that. She read and reread her novels, and fell totally in love with the Regency period and Heyer’s grey-eyed heroes!

After university, where she majored in Political Science and French, she began writing her first Regency novel, before moving to England, which gave her further inspiration for her historical romances.

Alissa has lived in Durban and Cape Town but she eventually settled in Johannesburg where she lives with her husband and two sons. Alissa is the author of two chick-lit novels, Send and Receive and The Blog Affair, which have been re-released as The Truth About Series: The Truth about Clicking Send and Receive and The Truth About Cats and Bees.

Alissa’s Linfield Ladies Series features women in trend-setting roles in the Regency period who fall in love with men who embrace their trailblazing ways… at least eventually. The Viscount’s Lady Novelist is the second book in this series, following on from The Earl’s Lady Geologist.
