Read for Fun (Purchased Copy)

Katharine Ashe puts more story into a novella than some authors do a full length novel. This is a wonderful read and a gorgeous cover! It is part of the Falcon Club/Devil’s Duke series. It can be read as a standalone, but you might enjoy it more if you know about Lady Justice’s letters for the rights of the poor and women.
The heroine, Gabrielle Flood, works for very low pay at the print shop that publishes Lady J’s letters. She also takes cares of her sick grandmother. When her employers take a vacation, she takes some type home for her grandmother to feel the letters. However, disaster strikes when an aristocrat in a hurry runs her down and she loses some of the letters.
Captain Anthony Masinter has no plans to marry but feels obligated to take care of his deceased first lieutenant’s widow and children. When he meets Elle again after knocking her down he is determined to help her keep her job and in doing so, falls in love with her. But he has a responsibility to the widow. What is he to do?
I don’t write plot spoilers so this is a limited review of all that happens in this book. I believe you’ll fall in love with Tony and Elle. I enjoyed it immensely and hope you will try it.
