    It was like a Jane Austen if they were action packed. It was a thoroughly enjoyable homage to Austen?s work. ...

    Can we make Regency Murder Mysteries a YA trend? Filled with swoonworthy suitors, devious deceptions, and some astute commentary on gender politics, Dangerous Alliance checks every box I have for a truly delightful historical novel. Fans of Cindy Anstey will go crazy for this. ...

    A Dangerous Alliance was an enchanting, heart warming and enthralling mix of history, romance, and mystery. With charming comparisons to some of Jane Austen's most famous novels and characters, it truly was a delight to read. With engaging characters, a wonderful old world English ...

    2.5 stars.. Had fun with it at first but it grew tired of it after awhile. Continued mainly because I was curious. Some of the action near the end parts felt over the top to me and had me rolling my eyes rather than gripping the pages. Still glad I tried to step out of my comfo...

    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. ...

    What could be more delightful than a mingling of Regency era manners, mystery, and a heroine who fangirls over Jane Austen? I was prepared to be enchanted and I was not disappointed. Dangerous Alliance opens with a young lady, Lady Victoria Aston, on the cusp of her coming out livin...

    Dangerous Alliance scratched an itch I didn't know I had for a Jane Austen-esque YA historical romance. This book is if every Jane Austen novel plus Vanity Fair had a baby. It's set in 1817, so Jane Austen herself has published all but her last two novels (Northanger Abbey and Persuasi...

    I loved this premise and sadly, I was quite disappointed. I liked Victoria well enough. She means well, but comes across as very young and spoiled. Tom had potential, but fell flat for me. I did like the sisters of both main characters. Plot wise, it was very dense and slow. Th...

    Rating 4 Stars As a huge fan of Austen, I couldn't help but be drawn to this book. It was even more enticing that this book takes place in the Regency era, when Austen is still alive and publishing her novels that excite and inspire women everywhere. She indefinitely inspired the he...

    Nice to read some YA historical fiction for a change. The title sums it up nicely. I enjoyed this book, but was never in any doubt about the outcome. The protagonist was mostly charming, but occasionally annoying, and sometimes her actions seemed a little contrived. I don?t usuall...

    I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher. This in no way impacted on my view. This book was phenomenal. As you probably know, I adore historical books, especially those based around the Regency Era, and when I heard about Dangerous Alliance, I immediately requested a cop...

    Dec 27, 2019
    This was disappointing to say the least. Vicky, the Jane Austen enthusiast who one day hopes to find her very own Mr. Darcy was dull along with being too childish for my taste to believe she could follow in Lizzy footsteps from "Pride and Prejudice" to solve all her problems an...

    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 spe...

    The moment I saw the cover and read the synopsis of Dangerous Alliance I knew it would be a book for me. At just over 400 pages it's a fast read with plenty of Jane Austen references as it promises. I enjoyed Dangerous Alliance a lot. The writing felt within the time period with app...

    2.5-3* TW: (view spoiler)[domestic abuse, attempted rape (all in mentions) (hide spoiler)] I anticipated this book for quite a while. I love Jane Austen and there is not enough current books that are set in the Regency era, and have a similar feel like the books from that time. The...

    ARC received in exchange for an honest review - thank you! I feel super dispirited right now... not many YA books seem to be holding my attention lately. This is the third ARC within the space of a few days that I think I'll have to DNF. I'm utterly unimpressed by her stupidi...

    The most adorable Austen foray since 1813!! Property squabbles, boy troubles, , and such scandalous talk of divorce! It?s a bit of modern take on Austen though as we also have murder, mayhem and boxing matches, none of which our Lady Authoress would dream of portraying. After al...

    I gulped this delicious book down in one sitting - and stayed up far longer than I should have. As a lover of georgette heyer's regency romances I enjoyed the depth to the delightful regency frothyness that strikes a chord - with its detailed issues of divorce and physical abuse. also ...

    I'm exhausted today ? why, you ask? Well, I stayed up all night reading an early copy of Dangerous Alliance because I couldn't put it down! This book has so many wonderful components that it would be impossible to list them all. Here's just a few: Vicky (the MC)'s strong, distinct ...

    To all the other books who claim to be a love letter to Jane Austen: sit down before you embarrass yourselves. This book has you all beat and then some. See my full review at Write, Read, Repeat. As a big fan of Jane Austen, I'm usually uneasy whenever I pick up a book that feat...

    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 everythi...
