Artemis Gordon Posted February 2 Share Posted February 2 Reputation Reputation by Lex Croucher is $2.99! I feel like the publisher put a lot of marketing dollars behind this one, but I don’t know many people that read it. It’s been compared to Mean Girls in a historical setting, though I don’t know how much romance is in the plot. The hilarious debut novel from Lex Croucher. A classic romcom with a Regency-era twist, for fans of Mean Girls and/or Jane Austen. Abandoned by her parents, middle-class Georgiana Ellers has moved to a new town to live with her dreary aunt and uncle. At a particularly dull party, she meets the enigmatic Frances Campbell, a wealthy member of the in-crowd who lives a life Georgiana couldn’t have imagined in her wildest dreams. Lonely and vulnerable, Georgiana falls in with Frances and her unfathomably rich, deeply improper friends. Georgiana is introduced to a new world: drunken debauchery, mysterious young men with strangely arresting hands, and the upper echelons of Regency society. But the price of entry to high society might just be higher than Georgiana is willing to pay … Add to Goodreads To-Read List → You can find ordering info for this book here.

I’m not super knowledgeable about historical accuracy, but I do know I prefer a Victorian over a Regency setting. I have a feeling this one might be divisive as the heroine is already married. A defiant Victorian wife fights to escape a bad marriage but her love for a forbidden man jeopodizes her chance at freedom. James Standish knows how to play society’s game. He’ll follow the rules, marry a virginal debutante, and inherit a massive fortune. At least, that’s the plan until he meets Francesca Thorne. She’s not the sort of woman a respectable gentleman like James could ever marry—not least because, strictly speaking, she’s married already. Francesca is determined to flout convention and divorce her philandering husband. When James sweet talks his way into her life tasked with convincing her to abandon her dream of freedom, she’s unprepared for the passion that flares between them. Torn apart by conflicting desires, James and Francesca must choose whether to keep chasing the lives they’ve always wanted or take a chance on a new and forbidden love.

This is book one in the The Blue Blood Conspiracy series, which is a spin off of McMaster’s London Steampunk series.
