A Lady’s Formula for Love
Pub Day 2/9/21
Lady Violet get awarded a contract from the government for a new scientific discovery. This brilliant woman who has a club for women that masquerades as a place to convene for sewing and gossip. But is actually a secret place for woman to research and hold scientific experiments.
This new attention brings threats to Lady Violet, enter protection officer Arthur. They have instant chemistry. Violet is a widow and her husband was an abusive prick (verbally, we don’t hear it only the after effects on her self esteem) and this bodyguard is teaching her how to love herself.
But she is a lady of the ton, she has to choose the prudent Earl, the family friend who can keep her reputation intact but is like a brother.
Will she be able to follow her heart and her lady parts to the man she wants and screw convention?
This book was unputdownable (is that a word?) with entertaining smart characters, steamy romance, STEM sexy talk, woman’s rights, mystery, intrigue, and balls (the ones you dance at, you people have dirty minds!)!
I love this cover! I love silhouettes, the colors, font and the heart!!
Thank you Berkley Romance and Net Galley for the advanced readers copy for my honest and voluntary review.
What is a Victorian lady’s formula for love? Mix one brilliant noblewoman and her enigmatic protection officer. Add in a measure of danger and attraction. Heat over the warmth of humor and friendship, and the result is more than simple chemistry—it’s elemental.
Lady Violet Hughes is keeping secrets. First, she founded a clandestine sanctuary for England’s most brilliant female scientists. Second, she is using her genius on a confidential mission for the Crown. But the biggest secret of all? Her feelings for protection officer Arthur Kneland.
Solitary and reserved, Arthur learned the hard way to put duty first. But the more time he spends in the company of Violet and the eccentric club members, the more his best intentions go up in flames. Literally.
When a shadowy threat infiltrates Violet’s laboratories, endangering her life and her work, scientist and bodyguard will find all their theories put to the test—and learn that the most important discoveries are those of the heart.
