You asked...

Late last week, we had a commenter ask us for reading suggestions after reading a book that had everyone buzzing in 2013: R. Lee Smith's The Last Hour of Gann. They were looking for something with intricate worldbuilding coupled with a compelling love story.

H&H sez...

Since that book was published, we've seen some interesting trends in paranormal romance—mostly the resurfacing of fantasy romance and science fiction with romantic elements. With that in mind, here are our reading recommendations:

I'm looking for a book that's not that old, and was mentioned here on H&H.

Set in Regency England, about a set of sisters who were gently born but currently homeless. They'd met this older lady who was being neglected by her son (nephew?); her possessions had been looted by her rotten relative, and the old lady was hungry and freezing when the sisters found her. The girls moved in, and took care of the old lady until another male relation showed up and thought the girls were thieves.

Does this sound familiar? I don't think it's more than two years old.

Thanks in advance!

I have yet to read it, Rose in RoseBear, but I believe that might be
The Autumn Bride (Chance Sisters series Book 1) by Anne Gracie.

"Governess Abigail Chantry will do anything to save her sister and two
dearest friends from destitution, even if it means breaking into an
empty mansion in the hope of finding something to sell. Instead of
treasures, though, she finds the owner, Lady Beatrice Davenham,
bedridden and neglected. Appalled, Abby rousts Lady Beatrice's predatory
servants and—with Lady Beatrice's eager cooperation—the four young
ladies become her “nieces,” neatly eliminating the threat of disaster
for all concerned!

It's the perfect situation, until LadyBeatrice’s dashing and arrogant nephew, Max, Lord Davenham, returns from the Orient—and discovers an impostor running his household…

A romantic entanglement was never the plan for these stubborn, passionate
opponents—but falling in love may be as inevitable as the falling of
autumn leaves..."
