This month we read:

Lady Honor's Debt (the Baxendale Sisters) 
by 
Maggie Anderson
Freedom. That’s all Lady Honor Baxendale wants—for her sisters and for herself. Honor has a bold plan to become financially independent, using a skill she learned at her father’s knee. She seeks the help of a solicitor and is pleased with her choice…as long as she can resist the solicitor himself.
Lord Edward Winborne has been happy to come to the aid of his four sisters in the past. But when a neighbor’s daughter, Lady Honor Baxendale, requests his help for a dangerous scheme she has in mind, he feels it his duty to dissuade her. When that fails, he wants to protect her, and then somehow finds he wants to do more. Much more.

Cathrina's Review:

I should read historical romance more often. I love it. The author Maggie Anderson pens a historical romance like a true expert. I was brought back to the 1800's with ease and clarity. Ms. Anderson paints a vivid picture and places the reader in that time period.
Lady Honor's Debt is a sweet novella of a woman, Lady Honor trying to help her family claim money from an unscrupulous gambler who swindled her deceased father. If you've read the blurb, then you know Lady Honor employs the help of the handsome Lord Edward. The attraction is instant although, neither Lady Honor nor Lord Edward are looking for a relationship.
The tale spins with sweetness and honor and totally sizzles by the time the reader turns the last page. 
If you enjoy Historical Romance, I definitely recommend Lady Honor's Debt!

  7. Born Free is a classic and one of my favorites. I also enjoy reading and watching historical fiction. It's so cool to get a sense of different eras and periods in time.
