    A highly readable and accessible historical fiction for older teens/young adults. When her family's estate is in jeopardy, an independent young woman must choose an acceptable husband or risk losing everything she holds dear. This book definitely contains mature themes, but the writing...

    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. ...

    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 I liked about this book is the open admiration towards Jane Austen and her work. Main character, Vicky, LOVES Pride & Prejudice and dreams about meeting someone as fascinating as Mr.Darcy. Don't we all? You could say Dangerous Alliance was a P&P retelling and the heroi...

    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...

    A fine historical romance romp. While this is obviously "Austentacious" it also has the feel of a Georgette Heyer, if not quite as witty as the incomparable Ms Heyer. But the heroine was certainly spunky enough. This was a perfect weekend read and I look forward to more from this autho...

    Ok, this is akin to sacrilege for me but... Jane Austen doesn't know everything. *faints* Lady Victoria Aston finds this out when she needs to find a husband. Sure, Jane Austen was the queen of writing about women looking for husbands, but Victoria's situation is much more dangerous th...

    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...

    Her life was looking less and less like one of Miss Austen's novels and more and more like an utter mess. 3.5 out of 5 stars Review copy provided by the publisher through Edelweiss. Read this review on my blog! Now that her elder sister has married, Lady Victoria Asto...

    I really liked the premise of Dangerous Alliance but the delivery fell a bit flat for me. After discovering that her sister's husband is a despicable man, younger-sister Victoria discovers that she needs to find a husband this season in order to guarantee that her family's estate won't...

    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...

    Dangerous Alliance was a delightful combination of mystery, romance, and intrigue with a nod to Jane Austen. The story was clever and compelling and kept me turning the page into the night. I see a big future for this debut author. Bravo! ...

    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 ...

    ARC provided by Edelweiss I enjoyed this read. It was a sweet historical romance and of course adding Jane Austen references was a good touch. I loved having a hard time gauging the characters motives and though I predicted some of the outcomes, some did throw me for a loop. I f...

    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 ...

    This book gave me the most serious case of "book hangover" I've ever had! I got to read an early copy of this book and when I finished it, I legitimately missed the characters and their world. I was hooked from the first page. Vicky is the kind of heroine I really rooted for and cou...

    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...
