Publisher's Summary

With quills and fantasies, they write their future.

Percival Randall lives an uncomplicated life of luxury, as he likes it. Not even an ultimatum requiring marriage can tip the scales. A conniving young lady who compromises his name to force a betrothal, however, is an impediment to happiness Percival must confront.

Abigail Walsley dreams of publishing novels rather than marrying dashing heroes. An unexpected proposal and a subsequent Banbury tale tumble her into a betrothal with a man she has never met. Following her dreams proves a challenge with a marriage of inconvenience on the horizon.

This is the love story of Percival and Abigail, two dreamers who write their love story one scene at a time.

From second chance romances to mistaken identities, experience a dash of romance in this collection of one short novel and 14 bonus flash fiction pieces.

An unexpected gem!

Story Review:
I’m not a huge fan of historical romance novels or historical fiction at all, unless I’m watching it. But A Dash of Romance was fulfilling and just the cutest story. From the first chapter, I was thinking, “hmm this is different, okay let’s see where this goes.” and was hooked by the third chapter. Percy and Abbie have such a great story to tell and I loved that it was kind of meta with Abbie being a romance writer.

It was also nice to experience a female character from that time who wanted her independence but wasn’t fully sure about it, all at the same time. Percy being the rich kid who had to make a choice whether to keep his money or not, had an interesting take on his choices.

This whole thing could easily be made into a movie and I’d watch it! The only thing that drove me crazy had nothing to do with the writing, but part of the personality of one of the characters. There’s a running thought of self worth all throughout the story. Interestingly it’s happening with both lead characters and their journeys are beautiful.

This is the perfect summation of this novel: “With quills and fantasies, they write their future.”- Paullett Golden

If you love a true romance novel with a dash of fairy tale, I’d highly recommend you read this book! I think I may have been converted to a historical romance reader. 😊💜

Narration Review:
Bridget Thomas's narration gave a whole new perspective to the story. As I read, I was hearing the characters with one accent and when I listened, it became another. This made it much better and I really enjoyed it! Thank you for the great narration!
