Summary: Miss Mary Whitsun is far too intelligent to fall for the rakish charms of a handsome aristocrat. But when the gentleman in question approaches her in a bookshop, mistaking her for his fiancée, Lady Johanna Albright, the flirtatious encounter only raises more questions. Could Mary, a servant raised in a St Giles orphanage, actually be Lady Joanna’s long-lost twin sister? If so, Mary has been betrothed since birth—to the rakishly handsome artistocrat himself.

Henry Collins, Viscount Blackwell, is far too intrigued by Mary to let her go so easily. He’s drawn to her sharp mind, indomitable spirit, and the fiery way in which she dismisses him—ladies simply don’t dismiss Lord Blackwell. But as Mary makes her first hesitant steps into society, she can’t help but wonder if she truly has a place in Henry’s world—or in his heart.


My Thoughts

Mary Whitsun is a compassionate, feisty, and witty heroine who has grown up throughout the Maiden Lane series and has more than proved herself worthy of a fairytale ending. And who better to give her that fairytale ending than the dashing Lord Blackwell.

Once Upon A Maiden Lane is an endearing, entertaining, and heartwarming historical romance story that is filled with incredible characters moving about in an engaging and fascinating storyline. Though this book is short in word count, coming in at around 100 pages, neither the characters, the story, nor the writing suffered for it. In fact, I think this novella was exactly the length it needed to be to give Henry and Mary a satisfying, meaningful love story that romance fans will love.

Fast-paced, well-written, and delightful, Once Upon A Maiden Lane is a must-read historical romance that Maiden Lane and Elizabeth Hoyt fans won’t want to miss. And will likely want to read again and again and again.
