The Lady and The Highwayman by Sarah Eden
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Sarah Eden is one of my favorite Regency era romance authors. So I was surprised to find that this story was set in the 19th century, rather than in the Regency era! The story is based around 2 authors who write Penny Dreadfuls- which are considered "low-literature serials" with stories of action and crime. Fletcher Walker and Elizabeth Black come from very different backgrounds. Walker came from the lower tier of society, while Elizabeth is considered all that is proper and right. But if anyone knew Elizabeth was writing under the name "Mr. King"- the top Penny Dreadful author- her life could come tumbling down. I loved the quote, "A lady in her position could be respected or she could be adventurous. What she could not be was both."
l found this to be a fun historical romance. I enjoyed the Penny Dreadful stories weaved in to the main story throughout the book.
Thank you Shadow Mountain Publishing and Net Galley for the opportunity to read and review "The Lady and the Highwayman".
