Historical romance loses its fantasy element when I think too hard about the reality of the 1880s - the surplus of clothing layers and the lack of women's rights, the quickness in which you can get labeled a wanton or hysteric and sent away to a sanitarium. Sooty gas lighting? NO THANKS. However, Evie Dunmore got me good with this one. There's a discussion on Marx! Socialism! Suffragettes! Workers and unions! A grumpy Scotsman with big hands and a chipped tooth! For all of those wary historical romance babies, this one is for you.
