The Brazen Bluestocking by Tracy Sumner ~ Review brought to you by The Girl Who Reads
Thank you, NetGalley for the chance to read and review The Brazen Bluestocking by Tracy Sumner!
The Brazen Bluestocking came out last year in September and is published by WOLF Publishing. I’m fond of regency romance novels, but something felt oddly familiar about this book. I checked out Tracy Summer on Goodreads and found that this was the second novel I’d read by her (the first being The Duke is Wicked which I received from Book Sirens).
While I’m still starting The Wicked Wallflower in this series, I’m not sure if Tracy Sumners is my favorite romance writer yet. Something about this was good, but also made me slow down significantly and I’m not sure if I like that in my romance novels; I prefer my mind being on vacation while I read these. I am still starting a third book by her, so clearly she’s pretty good. I bounce between romance writers and I don’t think I’ve read more than 2 books by the same writer (the second one can never hold my interest for very long), so the third book thing is significant to me.
That being said, the plot was good, the twists kept coming, we had a very interesting main character, and I would love to learn more about Mattie in the upcoming books. A lot of regency romances include a lot of cattiness between some of the female characters, this one was more wholesome, and it had an actual cat.
I’m not going to comment on what I got from NetGalley, mostly because I used my KU subscription to also read this, I figured that would help the author more!
I’m a little ashamed of myself because I kept calling the author Tracy Summer instead of Tracy Sumner!
Blurb for The Brazen Bluestocking
“A heartwarming love story filled with captivating characters. Sparks fly and emotion runs rampant, moving one from laughter to tears as this page-turner delivers its unique happily ever after.” ~ Anna St. Claire, USA Today Bestselling Author
In this Regency Romance by award-winning author Tracy Sumner, a willful bluestocking matches wits with a devilish scoundrel she never expected to desire with every beat of her heart.
A defiant society outcast.
A scandalous rogue who doesn’t believe in love.
And a passionate wager.
Daughter of an earl, Lady Hildegard Templeton hasn’t conformed to what society expects from a woman of her station. Industrious and unique, she’s created an emboldened organization for women on the cusp of marriage, The Duchess Society. Called a bluestocking to her face and worse behind closed salon doors, she vows to marry for love. And nothing but. Although the emotion has yet to show itself to her. Until she meets him.
Bastard son of a viscount and king of London’s sordid streets, Tobias Streeter has spent a lifetime building his empire, and he needs the Duchess Society to find a suitable wife to ensure his place in society. But he vows his search will have nothing to do with love and everything to do with vengeance. Until he meets her.
Soon, Tobias and Hildy’s plans are in turmoil as they must choose between achieving their goals or a life filled with love.
