ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: The Earl’s Lady Geologist
Series: The Linfield Ladies Series
Author: Alissa Baxter
Publisher: Vinspire Publishing
Release Date: February 28, 2021
Genre: Clean Regency Romance
Cassandra Linfield is a lady fossil collector who declares she will never marry as no man will ever take her studies seriously. When circumstances force her to travel to Town for the Season, Cassy infiltrates the hallowed portals of the Geological Society from which she has been banned. She is horrified when she comes face to face with her nemesis, the infuriating Earl of Rothbury.
Lord Rothbury is a gentleman-geologist with a turbulent romantic past. After a youthful disappointment, he vows never to fall in love again and makes the decision, instead, to seek out a convenient wife when he returns to England from his geological travels abroad.
Brought together by their close family ties, Cassy and Rothbury collaborate on a geological paper and discover a powerful attraction. Marriage, however, is the one subject they cannot agree upon. But when Cassy’s life is threatened, the two realize that love matters more than their objections.
What a delightful Regency novel this was! This was a story that I had trouble setting down.
I liked the way things developed between Cassy and Lord Rothbury. Neither one was very impressed with the other when they first met. Lord Rothbury even thought Cassy was a bit plain. However, I loved the way Rothbury’s eyes and heart opened up to the wonderful and smart woman Cassy was as they spent time together.
Cassy fought her attraction to Rothbury because she never planned to marry. Cassy’s reasoning actually made sense, even if those reasons meant that she wasn’t fully embracing life. I thought the author did a good job of creating a well-rounded character in Cassy. She had plans and fears and once her heart got involved, decisions she had to make became painful and complicated. I so enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more by this author.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Alissa Baxter wrote her first Regency romance, The Dashing Debutante, during her long university holidays. After traveling the world, she settled down to write her second Regency romance, Lord Fenmore’s Wager, which was inspired by her time living on a country estate in England.
Alissa then published two chick-lit novels, The Truth About Clicking Send and Receive (previously published as Send and Receive) and The Truth About Cats and Bees (previously published as The Blog Affair).
Many years later, Alissa returned to her favorite time period and signed a three-book contract with Vinspire Publishing for her Linfield Ladies Series, a trio of Regency romances that feature women in trend-setting roles who fall in love with men who embrace their trailblazing ways… at least eventually.
Alissa currently lives in Johannesburg with her husband and two sons. She is a member of The Beau Monde – Regency Fiction Writers.
