      Dangerous Alliance: An Austentacious Romance
The Gentleman s Guide to Vice and Virtue meets Jane Austen in this witty, winking historical romance with a dash of mystery Lady Victoria Aston has everything she could want an older sister happily wed, the future of her family estate secure, and ample opportunity to while her time away in the fields around her home.But now Vicky must marry or find herself and her family destitute Armed only with the wisdom she has gained from her beloved novels by Jane Austen, she enters society s treacherous season.Sadly, Miss Austen has little to say about Vicky s exact circumstances whether the roguish Mr Carmichael is indeed a scoundrel, if her former best friend, Tom Sherborne, is out for her dowry or for her heart, or even how to fend off the attentions of the foppish Mr Silby, he of the unfortunate fashion sensibility.Most unfortunately of all, Vicky s books are silent on the topic of the mysterious accidents cropping up around her ones that could prevent her from surviving until her wedding day.

    Half mystery, half romance, I loved it all All the fun of Georgian England PLUS Jane Austen references I really appreciated the author s research into the particulars of the time it added so much to the story.

    Throughout extremely lucky circumstances I got my hands on half a dozen pre release books Some of which I d been waiting for months to read, this wasn t one of those I hadn t heard of the book or the writer While I do like historical fiction, I only read romance in very rare and specific circumstances All in all, the chances would have been slim for me to pick this book up, especially since the synopsis does not do the book justice It would have been a big loss The book begins when Vicky s Throughout extremely lucky circumstances I got my hands on half a dozen pre release books Some of which I d been waiting for months to read, this wasn t one of those I hadn t heard of the book or the writer While I do like historical fiction, I only read romance in very rare and specific circumstances All in all, the chances would have been slim for me to pick this book up, especially since the synopsis does not do the book justice It would have been a big loss The book begins when Vicky s sister, Althea flees her abusive husband to take refuge in their parent s house, and it is the ramifications of that decision and what it means to pursue a divorce in that era that pushes the events of the book forward That alone is a unique enough storyline to set this book apart from other historical romances But it s certainly not the only thing Now suddenly Vicky s previous decision to take her time before marriage could mean the family state coul...

    I was fortunate to read an ARC of Dangerous Alliance, diving full speed into Regency England and a tale of damsels in distress, dashing heroes with impeccable timing, and dastardly villains so evil one can almost imagine a moustache being twisted over a wry sneer The book has everything a lover of the genre could want, with its careening carriages, kidnappings, balls, and duels, all set up to support a central love story that parallels Pride and Prejudice Cohen adds her own unique flourishes, I was fortunate to read an ARC of Dangerous Alliance, diving full speed into Regency England and a tale of damsels in distress, dashing heroes with impeccable timing, and dastardly villains so evil one can almost imagine a moustache being twisted over a wry sneer The book has everything a lover of the genre could want, with its careening carriages, kidnappings, balls, and duels, all set up to support a central love story that parallels Pride and Prejudice Cohen adds her own unique flourishes, giving the heroine agency and a meta awareness of all the parallels between the story we read and the stories the heroine reads The asides read almost like an actress turning to the camera with a wink and a nod Readers who are familiar with Austen s work 4 of the 6 books are referenced ...
