See a Problem?
Overworked and struggling, Pauline Simms doesn't dream about dukes. All she wants is to hang up her barmaid apron and open a bookshop.
That dream becomes a possibility when an arrogant, sinfully attractive duke offers her a small fortune for a week's employment. Her duties are simple: submit to his mother's "duchess training"… and fail miserably.
But in London, Pauline isn't a miserable failure. She's a brave, quick-witted, beguiling failure—a woman who ignites Griff's desire and soothes the darkness in his soul. Keeping Pauline by his side won't be easy.
Even if Society could accept a serving girl duchess—can a roguish duke convince a serving girl to trust him with her heart? And then some.

Pauline agrees to go to London for a week in exchange for a thousand pounds which will allow her and Daniela to become financially independent of their unstable and violent father. I really think Dare is doing a lot of interesting things with this setting and as I was thinking about this book over the last week or so, it really made me think about how I read this particular type of historical romance as speculative fiction. And yet, within this setting, it is taken as a given that women have agency and voices and that they matter.
This post is definitely making me want to give these books a try.
Any Duchess Will Do (Spindle Cove #4)
The Werestag novella is hilarious! The Spindle Cove books, in particular, are wonderful.
In general, I try not to comment on reviews of my books, but I just love this bit at the end about speculative fiction and historicals! Thank you. Some want a more immersive historical experience and resent those modern intrusions.
