Oh those Dastardly Davies!
In this fun and refreshing historical romance, Ms Bateman returns us to the post napoleonic “feud” between the Davies and Montgomery families - this time focusing on Morgan and Harriett.
While the “feud” has thawed, these two have a life time of needling each other and it was very entertaining to see that history play out.
Fantastic characters, light intrigue, and a great secondary cast all contribute to this unique read that stands alone in a series. These books are sequential, so a decent amount of the Morgan/Harriett world building takes place in other books. Don’t let that dissuade you though! You could easily start this series here- just be prepared for spoilers.

Sweet friends to lovers read!
Jackson and Tenley have been best friends for 13 years and he's been blind to the crush she's had on him while he continued to date the "convienient" girl. All of that changes when the professional footballer gets hurt and needs help.

I enjoyed seeing them bond as Tenley filled a needed gap in Jackson's life. The idea that the blinders came off for him was entertaining to watch and their evolving relationship was a feel good experience. The conflict in the story was beleiveable and based on issues that were realistic to a professional athlete.

The secondary cast here including Tenley's sisters and friends, but Jackson's teammates played a bigger role. As this is the first book in a series, the world building was well done and contributed to the story. Ms Silver is a new author to me and I am curious to see if there are other books in this series.
