Publisher's Summary

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue meets Jane Austen in this witty, winking historical romance with a dash of mystery!

Lady Victoria Aston has everything she could want: an older sister happily wed, the future of her family estate secure, and ample opportunity to while her time away in the fields around her home. 

But now Vicky must marry - or find herself and her family destitute. Armed only with the wisdom she has gained from her beloved novels by Jane Austen, she enters society’s treacherous season.

Sadly, Miss Austen has little to say about Vicky’s exact circumstances: whether the roguish Mr. Carmichael is indeed a scoundrel, if her former best friend, Tom Sherborne, is out for her dowry or for her heart, or even how to fend off the attentions of the foppish Mr. Silby, he of the unfortunate fashion sensibility. 

Most unfortunately of all, Vicky’s books are silent on the topic of the mysterious accidents cropping up around her...ones that could prevent her from surviving until her wedding day.

Dangerous Alliance is definitely worthy of five stars. An excellent historical fiction story that is beautifully written with everything you could ask for in a good book. I couldn’t put it down once I started listening to it!

Trigger warning: domestic abuse, rape, assault

I don't think a book with domestic abuse so central to the plot can honestly be called a "witty, winking historical romance". The brother in-law villan is more suited to something in the thriller genre and the minor women characters might be forgiven for thinking they are in a Thomas Hardy novel. The story is fine. The main romance is fine. But it is certainly not the lighthearted romantic mystery I was led to expect from the summary. There are a lot of light historical romances with Austin parallels and mysteries. Despite the cover, this is not one of them.

Loved it

After going through some intense high fantasy books, this was the perfect palette cleanser.

I loved everything about this book and the narrator did a fantastic job.
