This weekend I have a lot going on. First there is preparing the house for family that are coming in town next week for Thanksgiving and then there is church on Sunday. If you know me, there is always reading plans in the mix. I am never far from a book. I am currently reading, A Love That Never Tires by Allyson Jeleyne. It is a Historical Romance and I generally do not read in this sub-genre unless it is an author’s work I know. However, I decided to take a chance with an unknown author to me. So far the setting of story seems to be true to the period but I have to admit, I am a bit put off by some of the sex scenes. For a reason I won’t mention until after I finish reading the story.
I want to wish you all a wonderful bookish weekend and please stay tuned to Layered Pages for lots of wonderful interviews, author guest post and much more!
‘Linley Talbot-Martin is a girl who likes to get her hands dirty. As the daughter of a famous archaeologist, she’s been everywhere and seen everything—except London. When the Talbot-Martin team travels there for her father’s investiture, Linley finally gets her wish. But when the time comes to trade her jodhpurs and work boots for silk gowns and kid gloves, she may be in over her head. Even though she can out-ride, out-shoot, and outsmart any girl in London society, Linley is destined to be the failure of the season. No one she meets cares about ancient pottery or lost Buddhist texts, and fundraising efforts for future expeditions keep coming up short. If the Talbot-Martin team doesn’t find money soon, they will be out of a job, and Linley will lose everything she holds dear. Patrick Wolford, Marquess of Kyre (pronounced ‘Keer’), is a man who knows his place. Well-connected and respected, he is everything everyone expects him to be, but beneath his façade, he is as neglected and crumbling as the family estate. Now the strain of keeping up appearances is taking its toll. The smart thing would be to marry the heiress nipping at his heels and be done with it, but when he meets Linley Talbot-Martin, who dares to shake up his seemingly proper world, he must choose between the life he’s always known and one he never dared to dream of.’
